English Language Programs

Whether you are an undergraduate student, a graduate student, faculty, staff, or a scholar who has a first language other than English, the Vanderbilt University English Language Center (ELC) offers support for you.

The ELC offers various programs to meet the needs of those at Vanderbilt who have a first language other than English. Program courses and workshops are designed to target specific learning objectives. It is important for you to review the options available to you and decide what best fits your learning needs. Please feel free to contact a language specialist at the ELC if you are unable to determine an appropriate selection. The VU ELC does not issue I-20s for language instruction.
