Full-time ELP students receive 20 hours per week of instruction in English and American culture. The courses are taught by trained TESOL instructors who have experience teaching and living abroad. In addition to academics, the program offers cultural activities and field trips both on and off campus. The English Language Program is accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA), a national accrediting agency for English language programs and institutions in the United States. Undergraduate students not meeting the university English proficiency requirement may apply for conditional admission and start in the ELP, making a smooth transition to their undergraduate program after meeting English proficiency. Job & Research Opportunities Students studying on an F-1 student visa are eligible to work on-campus up to 20 hours/week. In addition to these opportunities, students have the option of internships, research and assistantships. Unlike most public universities, UM-Flint undergraduates are able to engage in advanced experimentation and intense investigation early in their academic careers. The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is designed to support collaborations between UM-Flint undergraduate students and faculty researchers. UROP allows students to earn paid (or volunteer), hands-on research experiences working alongside faculty on cutting-edge projects. Because of the diverse nature of the research conducted at UM-Flint, undergraduate students at any level and from any academic discipline can participate. Other options available for international students include off-campus internships while attending the university by applying for Curricular Practical Training (CPT) available for positions in the field of study. Students who graduate from UM-Flint have the opportunity to apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT). If granted, this allows students to work up to 12 months in their related field. Certain majors may apply for a 17 month STEM extension. Assistantships are available for graduate students through the Graduate Student Research Assistantships (GSRA) program. A GSRA is an appointment which may be provided to a student in good standing in a UM-Flint graduate degree program who performs personal research or who assists UM-Flint faculty performing research relevant to his/her academic goals.
