Established in 1977, the Intensive English Program (IEP) is a year-round, on-campus academic program designed to ensure that international students acquire the English-language and university-level learning skills needed for success in the undergraduate- or graduate-degree programs of their choice at CSUN or any other American college or university.
CSUN's widely recognized IEP provides an authentic university experience with on-campus classes, small class sizes (typically 15 to 20 students), and state-of-the-art language laboratories.
The IEP not only prepares students for academic success through its well-structured curriculum and highly qualified instructors but also offers the following benefits:
IEP/IPP/SSP CSUN Housing offers convenient, apartment-style accommodations that provide IEP/IPP/SSP students with the opportunity to live in the same on-campus community as university students enrolled in degree programs. Students in on-campus housing become familiar with the campus more quickly, meet other students more easily and take part in the many social and recreational activities organized by both IPP Housing and CSUN housing.
