Student Photo“My name is Vivekh, 17 years old, and I hail from the beautiful twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. How I came to ERAU? Well, for as along as I can remember, I have loved aviation. I talked to my parents about going to the U.S. to learn to fly and they agreed (love you guys!).”

Embry-Riddle Welcomes International Students

Students come from all around the globe for our unique aerospace-focused degree programs. Some 98 countries are represented currently at our residential campuses in Prescott, Arizona and Daytona Beach, Florida. Each campus provides comprehensive services to help you adjust to all segments of campus life and maintain your status in compliance with immigration regulations.

Learning the English Language

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's residential campuses both feature programs designed to prepare international students to fulfill language proficiency requirements, and succeed in their university studies.

Many international students at the Daytona Beach, Florida Campus attend the Embry-Riddle Language Institute (ERLI). ERLI offers an intensive English program that prepares students for full-time university studies during regular academic semesters, in addition to various short-term English language programs. Many international students enroll in ERLI to prepare for the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). Conditional admission to Embry-Riddle is available to ERLI students who qualify.

In order to help students fulfill the English proficiency requirement, Embry-Riddle works as a cooperating school with ELS Language Centers, one of the premier providers of English language learning in the United States. If you meet all other admission criteria besides the TOEFL requirement, ERAU can conditionally admit you while you study English with ELS Language Centers. Upon completion of Level 112 with ELS Language Centers, you can be fully admitted to begin your studies at ERAU.

Worldwide Options

In addition to our two residential campuses, there are approximately 150 locations in the United States, Canada, Europe and the Middle East where you can attend classes. Online courses are also available to you via Worldwide Online. Visit the Worldwide admissions site for complete application information.
