Should EAP courses count for degree credits?

TESOL thinks so. In a recent position paper, the American-based ESL teachers’ organization declared that preparatory ESL courses in colleges and universities “offer a rigorous, standards-based academic program that requires students to perform at a level similar to and on par with the subject matter in other degree-bearing courses, such as courses in English composition or in foreign language,” and should therefore earn students credits toward their degrees.
