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:
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. In Grad CAP, students study literacy, research, and communication skills for success in graduate courses.
