English for Academic Purposes Program (EAPP)

formerly the English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program

EAPP aims to teach ESOL students to use English to communicate more effectively and to enhance their academic and social interactions at the University of Rochester.  The program does this by teaching English for Academic Purposes courses in speaking and listening (WRT 101 and WRT 102) and in reading and writing (WRT 103 and WRT 104).  It provides the academic and social support to advance students’ communicative skills in English.  In addition, EAPP hosts social and cultural events, fosters peer interactions in the classroom for language and cultural exchange, provides a multimedia language lab along with other resources for English language study, and creates a friendly environment for practicing English.  Students are admitted into EAPP in accordance with the University of Rochester application process.  There is no separate application for EAPP.  Students accepted into the program are expected to earn their undergraduate degree in five years.  EAPP Program is housed in the Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program.  For further information, see writing.rochester.edu/EAPP/.
