Graduate Language Clinics


The English Language Institute's Language Clinics provide international graduate students, GSIs, scholars, faculty, and staff with one-on-one language and academic support. Clinics are staffed by ELI lecturers or by GSIs working under close supervision of experienced faculty.

Clinics are short term resources designed for students who have completed ELI courses or who are referred by an ELI advisor or faculty member. They are not intended to take the place of an ELI course. No academic credit is awarded for Clinic participation.
