The Pre-Academic Transitions (Pre-AT) curriculum is meant for students who need additional time to improve their English skills before beginning the Academic Transitions program.
Students in Pre-AT participate in special courses and activities that help them to build the language and academic skills needed in order to advance to AT, such as:
- Academic reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary
- Actively participating in class discussions
- Writing academic essays using a variety of styles
Minimum English level
- When applying for the program, students who submit a TOEFL score lower than 64 or an IELTS score lower than 5.0 will be placed in Pre-AT. Learn more about placement
- Students who did not submit an accepted test score and who test into a level between beginner and high-intermediate on the ELI’s placement exam will be placed in Pre-AT.
The Pre-AT curriculum lasts 2 months for each level.
The length of time you will spend in the AT program depends on where you begin and whether you continue through AT3.
