Intensive English Program

​​The Intensive English Program (IEP) is designed to help international (F-1 Visa) students 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 in the classroom and four hours in the lab each week. IEP students may also take listening/speaking, reading, writing and grammar courses during the summer session.
