The mission of the Intensive English Program is to help international students to achieve their academic and professional goals through the development of their English language skills.
The IEP is a full-time program featuring four eight-week sessions during the academic year and one eight-week session during the summer. Classes are offered at six levels, from beginning to advanced. Students spend approximately 20 hours per week in class, taking courses in grammar, reading, listening/speaking, writing, and academic preparation. The program is flexible, and every effort is made to meet individual student needs.
The successful completion of the highest level of the Intensive English Program (Academic Preparation Course) is the equivalent of a 550 TOEFL score and can be substituted for the TOEFL requirement.
All members of the Intensive English Program faculty hold at least a master's degree in teaching English as a foreign language. Many of the instructors have teaching experience both in the United States and overseas. Most faculty members have successfully mastered a foreign language, making them aware of the language learning process that their students face.
PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, due to the fact that our Intensive English Program is at capacity, we are not accepting IEP transfer students at this time. If you are currently studying in the United States, you must submit a passing TOEFL or IELTS score before your application for admission can be processed. No conditional admission will be offered.. The application fee is non-refundable. (Effective 1/31/2012)
PLEASE NOTE: The Intensive English Program is currently full. At this time, we are accepting applications from international transfer students for the 2nd session of the Fall 2013 semester, which will begin on October 15, 2013. Please e-mail email@example.com to find out how to apply to transfer to IEP.
