ELS Signs Partnership Agreement with University of St. Thomas for International Student Pathway Program

Princeton, NJ
24 January 2018

The University of St. Thomas (St. Paul, MN), and ELS Educational Services, Inc. (Princeton, NJ) recently signed an agreement which marked the beginning of a new phase in their 20-year partnership – to develop an undergraduate pathway program.

This pathway program – the first undergraduate pathway for ELS – will prepare international students for academic study at the University by allowing them to take English courses and core requirement courses simultaneously within their first year – enabling them to reach the level of English proficiency for normal admissions while pursuing the degree program of their choice.

“Through the UST ELS Pathway program, we will better fulfill Rev. John Ireland’s founding goal for St. Thomas to reach students who otherwise did not have access to a quality college education. We are excited about this opportunity to serve more international students while increasing our international presence on-campus and abroad,” said UST Associate Vice Provost for Global Learning and Strategy, Tim Lewis.

International students in this pathway program can pursue a degree in one of UST’s most popular undergraduate programs, such as science, finance, business, and the nationally ranked #29 engineering program (U.S. News & World Report).

“The 20-year partnership between ELS and the University of St. Thomas has proven that we share the same commitment to providing international students with education of the highest quality and standards. This new pathway program brings together a nationally ranked university, and ELS’s more than 55-year history and impeccable reputation within the U.S. higher education sector,” said ELS Executive Vice President Alexandra (Sasha) Zilovic, “We are thrilled to be working side-by-side with UST to offer this outstanding new program, and help students achieve their academic goals.”

The University of St. Thomas Pathway Program aims to enroll its first international students in 2019, and will offer a combination of programs and services such as courses for degree credit, counseling, and English-language support.
