Welcome to the Intensive English Program at the University of Northern Colorado!

Our mission is to provide international students with English language instruction for academic purposes at appropriate levels in order to prepare students for academics at an American university, to provide on-going language support in the form of language tutors, and to increase international students' understanding of inter-cultural communication.

About our program:

  • Our excellent faculty members offer instruction in English for Academic Purposes
  • Core content is covered in classes for basic, intermediate, advanced, and graduate level students
  • Skill courses have been designed to facilitate academic skills in computer use and academic vocabulary
  • Discipline-specific classes cover academic content like English for Criminal Justice

  • Students in the advanced level may study toward their academic degree
