Hi folks,

As we gear up to start the new year, you'll be receiving more emails from me than usual...but rest assured, it dies down again! 😉

Please read through the information below. The ELIP program is for all university students, not just international students. I have had students, both strong writers and not so strong, take some of these classes and have felt them very useful because they keep you on track in your writing, plus you have a specific instructor that you can visit in office hours, etc., for individual help and assistance.

You are probably good writers to get into graduate school--but as I found out in my own doctoral program--there is always another step higher! lol!

These classes don't count as electives, but are important support classes.
