Opening Paragraph

Our language programs have different application procedures and requirements. Please consult specific programs for more details.

Intensive English Programs (ESL)

You can pursue full-time English language studies in our Intensive English Program. We do not require Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores for admission.

Most international students need F-1 immigration status to attend our programs. After we process your application, you will receive an I-20 document that allows you to apply for a student visa at the local US embassy or consulate.
