Foreign Students: When enrolled in a WCIU English language program, foreign students are expected to enter the program with high English language reading competence. They must also have reasonable audial comprehension and be able to communicate with faculty and each other in spoken English. WCIU does not always expect the student to generate major academic work in English, recognizing that the work may be of much greater value in their own language. At faculty discretion, work may be submitted in another language. In such cases, the work will be assessed and evaluated by a WCIU approved qualified faculty the is fluent in the language. Any grade assigned must be recorded with the four-point system used by WCIU.
