The IEI offers six levels of English language instruction. Students can enter the program at any level, 1 through 6, depending on their English language proficiency. Also, they can move at any rate through these levels, or even skip levels, depending on how their English proficiency develops. It should be noted that students who do not pass a level will have to repeat that level. As a result, if students do not pass one or more levels, it will take them longer to finish.
Maximum Time Allowed in IEI: The maximum time to complete a full course of study (all 6 levels) at the IEI is 24 months. If a student does not complete the course of study in that time-frame, they will be ineligible to continue in the IEI and will receive a letter of dismissal.
Please note that, beginning Spring 2024, levels 1-3 will not be offered on campus. If interested, please contact Lifetime Learning for alternative online English language course options.
Please note that, beginning Spring 2024, a language test score will be required for conditional admission and/or admission to the Intensive English Institute. The Intensive English Institute offers Academic English courses for students who have the following minimum language test scores.
- IELTS 4.5
- TOEFL iBt 42
