Intensive English Program
Intensive English instruction is offered at St. Thomas University and includes preparation in reading, writing, oral presentation, and listening skills. Academically qualified applicants who are unable to take the TOEFL or who have a score between 157-173 on the computer-based test, 54-61 on the Internet-based test, or their equivalents may be offered admission on the condition that they must take the Level Of English Proficiency (LOEP) pretest to assess English language skills. The student will then be placed in the appropriate ESL course(s). The Admissions Committee and Director of the Academic Enhancement Center will make the final determination.
