Intensive English Program (IEP)

Stevenson Union 321


The instructional program of the Intensive English Program (IEP) at Southern Oregon University is designed to provide a structured program to non-native English speakers who want to improve their skills.  Courses provide students with the opportunity to develop excellent oral and written proficiency for educational and business success.  The curriculum is designed for students at all levels of English language proficiency (beginning through advanced).  Once the student has brought his or her English-language level up to the required level, it is easy to begin taking regular university classes in Ashland.

The IEP is part of Southern Oregon University.  Undergraduate students who do not have the required English proficiency are eligible for Conditional Admission and to enroll full-time in the IEP. All visa and other U.S. government documents will be handled through the SOU Office of International Programs. Since IEP students are part of the university, everyone must use the same forms as any other international student. IEP students, however, are not required to submit TOEFL, IELTS, or other scores in order to receive a Conditional Admission to SOU.  To apply visit www.sou.edu/admissions/international.
