PLaCE — Language and Cultural Support for International Students

PLaCE supports international students who learned English as a second language and who will benefit from language and cultural support as they adjust to life at a U.S. university. We offer two 3-credit courses designed to help you improve core language skills in English. Additionally, short courses are offered in target areas on a periodic basis.

PLaCE courses are a good fit if you are a first-year international student who scored below 101 on the TOEFL or less than or equal to an overall 7.5 on the IELTS. ENGL 110/ENGL 111 may also be a good fit at any level if you speak English as a second language and want to improve your core language skills and cultural knowledge.  ENGL 110/111 were previously called GS 100/101.
