Your Gateway to Academic America

North Carolina State University’s Intensive English Program (IEP), in the Office of International Affairs (OIA), is a full-time, non-credit academic program for international students offered in fall, spring, and summer. The IEP offers Intermediate, High-Intermediate, and Advanced levels of instruction.  Conditional admission to NC State through the IEP is also available.  We equip students with cultural and academic skills essential for smooth transitions and university success. Don’t take our word for it. Watch our video to see what our students have to say.

Summer 2017: Come join us for our summer session from May 15 – July 14, 2017!

This session is recommended for returning IEP students due to its intensive nature. We will only be offering Levels 5 and 6 during this session.
