Once you have received your ELTI admission letter there are many steps you will need to follow prior to your arrival in Charlotte. New ELTI students should plan to arrive in Charlotte a few days before the first day of New Student Orientation and Testing at the ELTI. Students are expected to be here ready to begin our program on the start date. Otherwise, they need to wait until our next available term to begin. During New Student Orientation and Testing, students take placement tests and are registered for classes. Additionally, we show students how to pay their UNC Charlotte bill and provide a payment deadline. Please review the below checklist as you prepare to study with us.
