Credit English For Academic Purposes (Credit EAP)


The Credit English for Academic Purposes Program (Credit EAP) is for advanced, conditionally admitted students who are transitioning from full-time intensive English study to full-time academic study.   Students admitted to the program have either successfully completed the Intensive English Program (IEP) or have tested into the Credit ESL program with a qualifying TOEFL or IELTS score.  Students in the Credit EAP program take courses that earn college credit in English and another academic discipline of their choosing.

Students who would like to be admitted to the Credit EAP program should first apply for undergraduate admission to UNL.  Those who meet all the requirements for full admission other than language proficiency will be directly admitted to Credit EAP if they have TOEFL scores of at least 61 iBT (writing subscore of at least 17) or IELTS scores of at least 5.0 (writing score of at least 4.5).  Students not meeting these language requirements for Credit EAP will be admitted to the Intensive English Program (IEP) and may enter Credit EAP upon successful completion of IEP.
