Depending on TOEFL or IELTS results, students accepted into the English Bridge Program must take ESL courses, some of which are credit-bearing toward graduation requirements. If the student's English language skills are strong enough, they may also take academic, credit-bearing courses at the same time. The average class size for ESL classes is five allowing much opportunity for interaction with the teacher and the other students. The English Bridge Program offers two levels of instruction: Intermediate and Advanced.
