Intensive English Program

The Intensive English Program (IEP) is designed to help international (F1 Visa) students to improve their English language skills, often in preparation for college-level study.

During each fall and spring semester, IEP students take five courses in listening/speaking, reading, writing, grammar, and supplemental skill development. They spend 15 hours a week in the classroom and 4 hours a week in the lab.

IEP students may also take listening/speaking, reading, writing, and grammar courses during the summer session.

The IEP consists of 25 main courses (five levels x five skills).
