English Language Support Office

You are here

The mission of the English Language Support Office (ELSO) is to offer writing and speaking support to international graduate and professional students that meets the needs of students in diverse programs, from diverse linguistic backgrounds, and at diverse points in their graduate careers.  

We offer a variety of programs to support international graduate and professional students as scholars, writers, speakers, professionals, and members of the Cornell community. Use the side menu to explore ELSO's programs. 

Not sure where to start? Then meet with the ELSO faculty! This fall, we are available at the Graduate School Orientaiton, the International Graduate Student Orientation, and the Law School Orientation. We are also holding a number of open hours and an open house, to provide students with guidance as they select from our offerings. To learn more, click here

We look forward to meeting you and working with you during your degree program.
