Intensive English Program

Huntington University’s Intensive English Program (IEP) is the ideal way to improve your English and to prepare for your university education. Intensive English (or ESL) classes are available to degree-seeking students needing to improve English language proficiency before enrolling full-time in degree-seeking courses. Students scoring less than a 75 on the TOEFL iBT or less than a 6.0 overall on the IELTS will be placed in Intensive English courses. Students placed in Intensive English courses are considered full-time Huntington University students and will be required to live on campus and comply with the Community Life Agreement as explained in the Student Handbook.

HU's IEP offers part-time weekly instruction from professional, highly-qualified teachers who are native English speakers. Your communication skills will greatly improve, and you will develop better study and research skills. Free tutoring is also offered which will give you the individual help needed to succeed even faster!

Program Requirements:

  • Meet HU’s academic admissions requirements and be academically accepted to HU
  • Achieve a minimum TOEFL iBT score of 65 or an IELTS score of 5.5

Advanced Level:

Students scoring between 65 and 74 (TOEFL iBT) or scoring a 5.5 (IELTS) will attend 100-level IEP courses which will allow them to earn some elective credits toward their degree in conjunction with 6–8 credit hours of degree courses.
