English Language Institute
Lincoln Memorial University offers an English as a Second Language program through our English Language Institute (ELI). An international student scoring below 500 on the TOEFL may be granted Provisional Admission while enrolled in ELI courses during his/her first academic year at LMU. The international student may also be able to enroll in regular college courses with the recommendation of the Director of ELI. Advanced ELI courses earn academic credit hours toward a degree. The international student should consult the Director of the ELI regarding placement tests, ESL courses, academic advising, and orientation to campus life.
There is a June 1 deadline for international applications for the fall semester. Be sure you include evidence of your family's ability to pay for your education (see above). All the above documentation must be received and admission granted before issuance of an I-20 form, necessary for obtaining a student visa. If you are accepted to LMU, you will receive a letter of acceptance; that letter and the I-20 form furnished by the university must be presented to the Consular Officer of the United States in your home country, to whom you apply for a student visa.
The university will not enroll any student not approved by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to attend Lincoln Memorial University; the university will not enroll students issued visas for enrollment at other colleges or universities.
