  • The IEP+ is offered during five (5) eight-week sessions throughout the year.
  • The program includes six levels, from beginner to advanced.
  • Each level contains three courses: a core course, which focuses on reading and composition (ten hours/week); a grammar class (five hours/week); and a listening and speaking class (five hours/week). Additional topic/skill courses may be available.
  • If you are an F-1 international student, you can enroll in 20 contact hours a week for a total of 160 contact hours during the eight-week period.
  • Resident or local students may enroll in any course within their designated level.
  • IEP+ students have access to housing, meal plans, and all other campus resources and services, like computer labs, library, and fitness center. 
  • Students who score a 3.7 on the iTEP or who successfully complete Level 6 of the program will meet the English language requirement for Marian University and are not required to provide a TOEFL or IELTS score. Note: Approval for advancement in levels and completion of program is ultimately based on student learning outcomes.
