Eastern Florida State College offers a comprehensive Intensive English Program (IEP) designed for non-native English speakers who are deeply committed to enhancing their language proficiency.

This rigorous program, which accommodates both international F-1 visa students and those who don't require an F-1 visa, is valuable for working professionals and students preparing for university studies or professional programs. Participants come from more than 50 countries, and our small class sizes, averaging around six students, provide ample individual attention and opportunities to develop conversational skills.

Instruction covers all aspects of the English language, including reading, listening, speaking, grammar, writing, voice and speech improvement, and TOEFL test preparation.

Course Registration

The way you sign up for the Intensive English Program depends on whether you're an international student with an F-1 visa or a local resident without one. Regardless of your visa status, if you're new to the program, you'll need to take a placement test upon entering the program to determine your level of English proficiency.
