Point Park University, in partnership with Duquesne University and ELS Language Center, provides a variety of options in English language instruction. Successful completion of Duquesne's advanced ESL or ELS level 112 allows you to matriculate to Point Park without taking the TOEFL or IELTS test to most of our programs.
