Conditional Admissions  

The Conditional Admissions Progam (CAP) provides international students the opportunity to strengthen their English-language skills so that they can enroll and succeed in undergraduate classes at the University of Delaware.


To qualify, students must apply to the University and meet the admissions requirements of their choice of degree program. If admitted via CAP, you begin coursework at the English Language Institute (ELI). If you complete Level 6 English for Reading & Writing and for Listening & Speaking with a “B” or better and receive a recommendation from ELI, you are eligible to enroll.
