At Salve Regina University, English as a second language is offered through the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program, which is designed for degree seeking students who have TOEFL scores of 500-550 (paper-based test), 173-213 (computer-based test), or 61-80 (Internet-based test). The purpose of the EAP program is to provide the language and cultural support necessary for success in academic and student life. Small class sizes and a committed faculty help create a friendly environment that promotes active learning. The EAP program emphasizes participation in social, cultural and educational events and involvement with the campus community, which helps to ease the transition into American culture.
As part of the Academic Center for Excellence, the EAP program is dedicated to providing language tutoring and resources that address the specific needs of students who are non-native speakers of English. Experienced and supportive tutors are available for both occasional and regularly scheduled academic assistance.
