Acceptance

Students are notified within one to two weeks after the ELI receives your completed application. The ELI Express Mails your official I-20 Immigration and Naturalization Certificate of Eligibility and your Letter of Admission to the ELI.


ELI Exam

The City University of New York recognizes the professionalism of our program. Students who have passed the Queens College full-time ELI Final Exam with a certificate do NOT need a TOEFL score in order to apply to CUNY undergraduate and graduate programs that require a minimum TOEFL score of 500. However, we strongly encourage students to take the TOEFL as well.

Immunization

The ELI does not require proof of immunization. However, the Health Service Center at Queens College recommends that all students be immunized against measles, mumps, and rubella before coming to the United States. It is a good idea to bring with you proof of any vaccinations you have had in your country.
Medical coverage in the United States

Health care in the United States is expensive for anyone without medical coverage, and a short hospital stay can cost thousands of dollars. You can purchase insurance in your home country or in the United States. If you experience a serious illness or accident, you cannot purchase health insurance after the fact to cover that illness or accident. Traveler's insurance does not usually cover medical expenses. Costs for health insurance vary. Plans are available by the month, semester, and year. We urge you to consider obtaining medical coverage for your stay in the United States. For more information, contact ELI@qc.cuny.edu

Applying to Queens College or another CUNY school

Many of our students go on to study at Queens College or another college of the City University of New York. Princeton Review’s America’s Best Value Colleges routinely cites Queens for its outstanding academics, generous financial aid packages for residents, and relatively low costs. Queens also ranks in the first tier in the category of “Best Universities-Master’s North” in U.S. News and World Report’s America’s Best Colleges.
