English As A Second Language * - Degrees & Policies
The program director of the English as a Second Language program is available to advise students and place them into ESL courses prior to and at the beginning of each semester.
All international students who are applying to undergraduate programs at the University at Buffalo and whose first or dominant language is not English should contact International Admissions for details about required English test scores for admission,
or to apply to the university.
International undergraduate students who do not meet the university's English requirements for admission are welcome to apply to the Intensive English Program instead. The Intensive English Program is a non-credit,
full-time program offered by the English Language Institute. See http://www.buffalo.edu/eli for more information.
Students required to take ESL courses may be able to substitute transfer courses.
