You are here

Any person. Any study. From anywhere.

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. 

New to Cornell? Read the ELSO Welcome Letter, attend the ELSO Orientation, or talk to an ELSO faculty member during an Open Hour.

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