Conditional Admissions at Winona State University

Winona State University offers Conditional Admissions for international candidates by accepting students into our English Language Center (ELC). ELC provides an intensive English language program to international students who wish to improve their English language skills while learning about the American culture.

Upon successful completion of the ELC program, students will be formally admitted to Winona State University; they are not required to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score. Students must meet the following conditions to exit the ELC and gain admission to the university:

  • They must pass their ELC courses with at least a C in all classes.
  • They must pass the ELC exit test
  • They must receive recommendations from all instructors and approval of the ELC Director
