Intensive English Program

Intensive English Program (IEP)

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.

ESOL Courses

The Intensive English Program consists of 25 courses.
