English as a Second Language (ESL)
For students whose first language is not English, the English Language Center (ELC) offers ESL courses to aid in the language-learning process. The ELC places students into ESL courses based on their placement test.
International students planning to attend UNLV must earn a satisfactory score on an English placement test. The ELC offers the Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency (MTLEP) regularly throughout the school year.
