Intensive English Program

The Intensive English Program is designed to prepare students to participate successfully in the academic environment. Students are given a placement test upon arrival to determine the most appropriate level of study. Courses are offered at five levels of instruction. The skills-based curriculum integrates reading and writing, listening and speaking into one complete program of study. The focus is on English language acquisition and application in an academic setting. Specialized classes vary by level; focusing on the needs of the language learners. Satisfactory completion of the highest level meets the English language requirement for acceptance to undergraduate programs at the University.
