English Requirements for Graduate CAP

Before beginning their regular university coursework for their graduate (Masters or Doctoral) degree, CAP students must first satisfy certain English language requirements by studying at the ELI.

Grad-CAP students must achieve the following grades:

English for Academic Purposes
Level VI

Reading B+
Writing B+
Grammar B+
Final Essay 6.5 points (7 points is the maximum)

Each of the above requirements must be met in the student’s final session.

Additional Requirements:

Besides the requirements listed above, graduate CAP students must satisfy any other objective required by their graduate program as part of their conditional admission.

Usually, these objectives include exam scores for the GRE or GMAT exams; however, there may be other requirements for your admission, as well.

To verify whether you have other requirements for your conditional admission, check the acceptance letter that you received from your graduate program and/or contact the graduate department that gave you the conditional admission.

Remember, the ELI offers a GMAT/GRE Preparation class for Graduate CAP students every session.

Assistance available for students:

If you are currently studying at the ELI, there are many resources available to help you to understand what is required of you and to achieve the objectives listed above. Please visit our CAP Student Center, located online in our Current Student Portal to learn more.

If you have questions about the grade requirements or if you need academic assistance, there are several CAP Advisors available to you. Please request an appointment with a CAP Academic Advisor:
