Undergraduate University Track

Pathway Program, Levels 8-9

The Undergraduate University Track (U-Track) is CESL’s pathway/bridge program. It features a content-based curriculum specifically for students conditionally-admitted to the University of Arizona.

Students learn content similar to what they will encounter in their first year as undergraduate students and thereby improve their language abilities.  They also enroll in a CESL-supported general education course for credit; this course will count toward any major at University of Arizona. 

With CESL's English Language Endorsement, students in the U-Track can fulfill UA's minimum English language proficiency requirement without taking an additional TOEFL or IELTS exam.

It is recommended that students study in the program for 2 sessions (1 semester). However, students who enter the program in Fall 2 (October start), Spring 2 (March start), or Summer (June start) can exit with endorsement in as little as 8 weeks if they perform exceptionally well.
