International Accelerator Program

Academic English Session II

Advance your English skills before beginning your program. Undergraduate and graduate level students may enroll in an eight-week intensive English program to prepare for success. 

 Benefits to You

  • Available to: Students at both the undergraduate and graduate level*
  • Start early, finish early: Upon meeting the required internal English testing level on campus, gain an earlier start towards your degree track. Students have the opportunity to retest their English at the end of the eight weeks and to potentially accelerate the completion of their degree program.
  • No minimum test score required: Receive a full offer for Academic English and be placed into the appropriate level class upon arrival. If you do have a test score, you will receive a full packaged academic offer when applying. (Note: Students without a test score will be given a study plan of at least three semesters of English.)
  • Build confidence: The additional time on campus will help you adjust to your new home and achieve academic success.

*Note: Progression into the summer semester is not available for graduate students.
