ELL Services
Welcome to the ELL Services page. The Resnick Learning Center makes every effort to ensure that SUNY-Delhi's students attain their academic goals. The English Language Learner program is one branch of the Center that helps students become competently and confidently prepared for college-level work. See below for descriptions of our program's services.

ELL Classes

SUNY-Delhi currently offers one ELL course, English 100 for ELL students which are open to full-time and part-time students in the fall semester. 

ELL Tutoring

SUNY-Delhi offers tutorial services to ELL students on an individual basis with a peer tutor for a range of subjects.  Eligibility and Restrictions: ELL students are limited to two hours per subject per semester (such as biology and business law).

Applications can be obtained through Tutorial Services, located in the Resnick Library & Learning Center on the 2nd floor of Bush Hall. Specify if you are seeking ELL tutorial services. Apply early in the semester for a better chance of securing a tutor on a regular basis. 

ELL and Writing Center

Professional tutors assist students to develop writing and grammar skills for papers across the curriculum. Tutors also help students strengthen pronunciation and improve listening skills through guided practice. Appointments can be made at the Resnick Learning Center front desk.  For more information contact Sharon Ruetenik, Coordinator for Writing Center/ELL Services, 607-746-4596.

Accomodated Testing for ELL Students

We believe that academic success improves when ELL students have more time to read and respond to major exams. Therefore, we offer accommodated testing in the form of extended time (limited to time-and-a-half; a 50-minute test extends to 75 minutes.)

Unlike testing accommodations for students with disabilities, this ELL service is a privilege rather than a right. Therefore, when you first apply for testing, you must be interviewed by the ELL coordinator to verify the level of your English language proficiency. After you have been approved, you must read and sign a "Contract of Responsibilities."

To ensure the availability of a proctor and a testing seat, you must submit a completed application to the ELL Office, signed by your instructor, at least one week before the scheduled exam. If you are a first-semester student, you may apply for up to three subjects. Second-semester freshmen will be allowed to test in two subjects; thereafter, they are limited to one subject per semester.

The Application for Accommodated Testing for ELL Students can be obtained from Sharon Ruetenik, ELL and Writing Center Coordinator, 317 Bush Hall. For help in filling out the application, or for more information about accommodated testing for ELL students, contact Sharon Ruetenik at 607.746.4596
