  • Level 4 – Advanced
  • Level 5 – High Advanced

Program structure:

  • Each level is 8-weeks during Fall and Spring sessions, and 8-weeks during Summer session
  • Each level includes core courses in reading, writing, speaking & listening, and grammar
  • Students advance to the next level dependent upon final course grades (C or better) and teacher recommendations
  • At the end of levels 4 and 5, students take the iTEP Academic Plus to gain admission to degree programs.

Note: IEP students who wish to be considered for a UIS degree program must meet the English proficiency requirement(s) specific to their program. General admission English proficiency requirements can be found here.
