Appalachian does not currently have its own intensive English language program. However, the university has established conditional acceptance partnerships with the American Language Academy (www.alaenglish.com), INTERLINK (www.uncg.interlinkesl.com), ELS (www.els.edu), and New Mind (www.newmindedu.com). If you would like to attend Appalachian but do not have sufficient English skills, we encourage you to first study English at one of these English language programs that have a relationship with Appalachian.
