English Language Communication

The ability to effectively communicate in English - to read, write, and speak the language fluently - is vital for Stevens graduate students.  Depending on your level of proficiency, you may be required to complete an English Language Communication Course (ELC). Details for each of the three ELC courses offered by Stevens can be found below. Please note that attendance is mandatory for the ELC courses. Students who are required to enroll in an ELC course will not be permitted to overload (enroll in more than 12 credits).
