Embry-Riddle Language Institute (ERLI)

a group of students

The Embry-Riddle Language Institute (ERLI) is an intensive English Program. We provide academic English language and culture instruction to non-native speakers of English. We offer classes with 6 starting points per year (2 in spring, 2 in summer, and 2 in fall). ERLI does not offer beginning level English.

Students can enter the University after finishing the program if they meet all other university admission requirements. They may also enter if they receive a high enough TOEFL/IELTS score.
