Requirements by track of study

The specific requirements that must be met depend on which graduate program that the student will attend.

  • Students in the MBA (or most other graduate Business programs) must meet requirements in the “Business Track” | Learn more ➤
  • Students in all other types of graduate programs will follow the “General Track” | Learn more ➤

Business Track Requirements

Business track: matriculation requirements

Descriptions of the requirements to complete CAP for graduate business majors are below.

Course and grade requirements

Grad-CAP students in the Business Track must successfully complete the following courses in the ELI’s PreMBA program:

  • Advanced Business Case Studies (ABCS) – Listening/Speaking
  • Entrepreneurship – Listening/Speaking
  • Reading/Writing for Graduate Programs (Grad VI) – Reading/Writing

All of these courses are Level VI courses, and they may have prerequisite courses that must be taken if a student is placed at a lower level upon entering the program.

PreMBA Course Skill Areas
Minimum Grade Required
Listening B+
Speaking B+
Reading B+
Writing B+
Grammar B+
Listening & Speaking Skills Checklist Level VII
Writing & Reading Skills Checklist Level VII

The Listening & Speaking Skills Checklist and the Writing & Reading Skills Checklist are completed by teachers at the end of each session (independently of grades).

Requirements from the graduate department

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. You may also contact the CAP Admissions Team at CAPadmissions@udel.edu.

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

Final essay

All students take an essay at the end of each session to assess their writing skills. CAP students must achieve a minimum of level 6.5 (out of a maximum score of 7) during their final session at ELI.

Effort score

Students must also prove their readiness for university study through showing consistently strong effort in their courses. This is done via attendance, participation, and enthusiasm in their courses. CAP students must achieve an effort score of 1 (excellent) or 2 (satisfactory) in their courses during their final session at ELI.

CAP Cohort engagement score

CAP students are required to successfully complete the CAP Cohort program before beginning their university coursework. This is measured via the “engagement score”–a measure of the student’s successful participation in their cohort activities.

The engagement score is measured on a scale of 1 (emerging engagement) to 6 (exceeding engagement).

To successfully complete the CAP Cohort Program, CAP students must follow the “3-2-1 Policy:” A CAP student must be enrolled in Cohort for 3 sessions, earn an engagement score of six 2 times, and 1 of the scores of 6 must be obtained while the student is in a Level VI class.

To complete Cohort with the second engagement score of 6 while in a Level VI class, students must also:

  • Have an effort score of 1 or 2 in their Listening/Speaking and Reading/Writing courses;
  • Have an average score of 73% or higher in Listening/Speaking; and
  • Have an average score of 73% or higher in Reading/Writing.
Attendance

CAP students are required to attend at least 85% of their classes.

  • In an 8-week session, CAP students cannot miss more than 12 classes.
  • In a 7-week session, CAP students cannot miss more than 10 classes.

Remember, CAP students are required to attend tutoring, as well.

Academic honesty

CAP students must understand and follow UD’s academic honesty policies in order to be recommended for matriculation. All students receive instruction on this subject within the English for Academic Purposes courses at the ELI.
