Intensive English Program


IEP3

The Intensive English Program (IEP) is a full-time program featuring two 16-week semesters (Fall and Spring) during the academic year and one 10-week session during the Summer. Classes are offered at three levels: elementary, intermediate and advanced. (Levels offered is dependent upon enrollment and staffing.) Students spend approximately 18 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 Advanced Level of the Intensive English Program (Academic Preparation Course) is the equivalent of a 79 TOEFL score and can be substituted for the TOEFL requirement for many undergraduate and graduate programs at Pittsburg State University.
