Students who choose this option must also enroll in the English Language Support Program (ESLA 171) for 1.5 hours per week with the School of English. Students will be informed of their eligibility for this option and invoiced the additional course fees in the first week of their EAP program.

Progressing Through QBridge

Students must meet the following minimum mark requirements to qualify for full-time degree-credit enrollment:

Complete EAP 140 with a minimum grade of A-
-OR-
Complete EAP 150 with a minimum grade of B

It is possible for a QBridge EAP student to meet the above grade requirements within the fall term. If so, these successful students are eligible to enroll in up to 9.0 units of degree-credit courses in the winter term. Students who achieve this result must also enroll in the English Language Support Program (ESLA 172) for 3 hours per week with the School of English. Students will be informed of their eligibility for this option and invoiced the additional course fees in the first week of their EAP program.

QBridge EAP students who don’t obtain the minimum mark requirements in the fall will continue their language studies at Queen’s School of English for the following term(s) until they do obtain the minimum mark requirement.
