ELI instructors are experienced, dedicated to their students, and have master’s degrees.

The Pathways Program consists of 1 – 3 terms (the equivalent of a 4, 8, or 12-month course) depending upon your English-language proficiency entrance score.

Students who enter the program receive college-level English-language instruction with specialized academic coursework in your field of study – all taught by Pace University professors.

Upon successful completion of the program, you will progress into a Bachelor’s degree program in Business, Arts and Sciences, or Computer Science and Information Systems with up to 17 credits towards your degree!
