ELL Information

For students whose native language is not English, adapting to American standards of academic discourse can be frustrating. Even if your native language is English and you are an international student studying in the U.S., there are differences in language, structure, class requirements, and other academic expectations that may be difficult to get used to. If you are experiencing difficulty in any academic areas at Gordon, please stop by the ASC on the 4th floor of Jenks to make an appointment with a staff member.
