English Learner Institute (ELI)
The English Learner Institute (ELI) is a noncredit program that focuses on helping members of the community develop basic English and other skills - including technology, life and social skills - that are essential to American culture. Anyone who is a newcomer to the United States, or needs to develop basic English skills, is eligible for this program.
Available at the Lowell campus through MCC's Multicultural Center, the English Learner Institute consists of various noncredit day and evening courses (offered at a reduced rate) that vary in length, from six to fourteen weeks. As part of the Institute, a free program called Prepare to Attend College (PAC), is offered three times a year. English Learner Institute courses are non-sequential, which allow students to enter at various times during the year. These classes continue to be a bridge for non-native English speakers who often enroll in credit classes at MCC.
