The Intensive English Program (IEP) is a non-credit program designed to prepare students in the language and study skills necessary for successful academic work in American colleges and universities. The IEP offers academic English courses from basic to advanced levels of proficiency. In some cases, students who have been accepted to a degree program at Georgia State may combine upper-level English as a Second Language (ESL) courses and regular academic work.
Every level in the IEP offers five courses each semester (a total of 18 hours in class each week). Courses include academic writing, structure/composition, academic reading/listening, extensive reading, and oral communication. Tutoring services are available for students.
