As a newly accepted student to the Intensive English Program (IEP), you may feel overwhelmed by or unsure of the steps you should to take to prepare for your first session in the program. You will have questions and will need answers. The Language Institute staff is happy to help you make the preparation process as smooth as possible, and that help begins on this page.

The following pages contain documents and information that is important for any newly accepted student preparing to enroll in our IEP. Be sure to carefully review all documents to learn as much as possible about many aspects of the IEP, including registration, housing, immunization records, paying for tuition, and much more.

If your plans change and you need to cancel or defer your enrollment to a later session, please let us know as soon as possible by completing our online Change of Plans Form.
