Intensive English Program for non-native speakers of English

Notice of Program Closure: Effective August 1, 2019 the Intensive English Program (IEP) at the University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) will be closed. The program will run as usual through the end of the Summer 2019 session. Sorry for the inconvenience! Please contact our office if you have any questions or concerns.

Our mission is to provide English language learners the English necessary to succeed in American academic and professional settings. We welcome students to our intensive program with many opportunities to learn and practice the English they need for future opportunities. American culture is introduced and examined both inside and outside the classroom. We offer support to the faculty and staff across our UIS campus who also work with non-native English speakers. Our instructors and staff are highly qualified and regularly collaborate on projects and events.
