About the English Language Program

The English Language Program (ELP) is an intensive language program at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas.

The ELP's primary purpose is to provide English instruction to students who are admitted to a degree program at Kansas State University but who have not demonstrated the English proficiency required for enrollment in academic courses.  The ELP also offers English instruction to international students who choose to come for language training only or as a study abroad experience.

The ELP is a member of the Consortium of University and College Intensive English Programs (UCIEP) and EnglishUSA and is accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA) which is “the only specialized accrediting agency for English language programs and institutions in the U.S.” In 2013, the ELP received 10-year re-accreditation from CEA.
