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. Students who successfully complete the final level of the IEP (level 5) receive an English Proficiency Test waiver for undergraduate admission. In some cases, students who have been accepted to a degree program at Georgia State may combine upper-level IEP courses and regular academic work. Level six if the IEP is specifically for students seeking graduate admission at Georgia State.
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, proficiency test preparation (TOEFL / GRE) and oral communication. Tutoring services are available for students as well as weekly conversation exchange activities and excursions.
