Students may apply for IEP at the time of year most convenient to them. IEP courses are taught in five eight-week sessions during the year, beginning in August, October, January, March, and June. A four-week special topics class is also offered in May. 

The IEP provides undergraduate students with instruction in 8 levels, from beginning to advanced.Students have more than 20 hours of instruction each week in four classes:

  • Listening and Speaking
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Grammar

This picture shows an example of the class schedule for an IEP student. (Students in the Grad CAP program may have a different schedule.)


After finishing the undergraduate IEP requirements, master's students will study in the Graduate Conditional Acceptance Program (Grad CAP), which is taught in one full sixteen-week semester beginning in either August or January.
