ELC has been approved by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to issue the SEVIS Form I-20. Students enrolling in a minimum 24-lesson per week course are eligible to receive an I-20 form in order to apply for a F-1 student visa in their country.
Free Academic Tutoring
Each student also has the option to participate in our free academic help desk to receive more English language study time with our dedicated faculty.
English Level Evaluation with Multi-Level Placement
Each student benefits from our English level evaluation with multi-level placement. Our method of placement testing allows students to be placed into the appropriate level for each skill area, rather than a single level placement for all skill areas. This method means students will usually have different teachers for different levels and ensures that students study English in the learning environment that is best for them.
Authorized Test Center
All ELC Schools are open authorized test administration sites for all of the Cambridge exams including FCE, CAE and CPE.
Each student can continue to practice his/her English skills outside of the school through chaperoned activities and excursions around the city with their friends from ELC. Participating in activities is a great way for students to meet their classmates and experience all that Santa Barbara has to offer.
University Admission Services
ELC is pleased to offer free counseling and university placement services to all ELC students interested in continuing their education at an American college or university in California and around the United States.
