The Intensive English Program (IEP) at NWTC is designed to prepare students for the academic language demands of college-level coursework. The IEP offers two levels of English instruction: Intermediate and Advanced. Students attend class 4 hours daily in Listening/Speaking, Reading, Writing, and Grammar. Students also have access to the language lab for independent study and practice in the afternoon. The IEP instructors have many years of experience and have lived and/or taught extensively in other countries.

IEP Options

Short-term Cultural Immersion (3 weeks) This program is designed to give students an immersive language experience, and the daily schedule is the most structured. The cost includes the 3-credit English Program, Books, Housing, 2 Meals/Day, and Cultural Excursions. This program is tailored for lower-intermediate English speakers.

Summer IEP (6 weeks) This 6-credit IEP, although intensive, goes at a slower pace than our Short-Term Cultural Immersion. Students can expect a more traditional U.S. college feel, with classes during the day and more personal time in the evenings and weekends. Students have the option to live in the on-campus housing. This can be a good option for students who are looking to improve their English skills quickly and potentially begin an academic program in the Fall semester. This program is designed for intermediate-advanced English speakers.

Fall/Spring Semester IEP (15 weeks) This IEP falls within our regular academic year, so students will be attending classes at the same time most NWTC students take their classes. This is the most traditional path for students, and is especially recommended for students needing to improve their English skills before beginning an academic program in the U.S.

Admission to the IEP

(6-week Summer/15-week Semester Programs) Students must have a minimum TOEFL score of 32 (iBt) or IELTS 4.0 to enter the 6-week Summer IEP or the Fall/Spring Semester IEP.

Placement Testing

Either prior to or upon arrival, students will be given an English placement test to determine which level of language instruction is most appropriate.
