International English Language Institute (IELI)

The IELI facilitates the transition from an intensive language program to academic programs by offering instruction in English for academic purposes in all core skill areas: grammar, writing, reading, listening and speaking.  Students also have the opportunity to take several courses that focus on a variety of topics and skill areas.  More information about these classes can be found in Course Descriptions.  These courses help students become familiar with American culture and the higher education system.
