Non-degree Programs

Non-degree programs for English as a Second Language are offered through the International English Center (IEC), in the Division of Continuing Education.  

The IEC provides academic English language training to current and prospective CU students whose first language is not English. Students receive instruction in writing, reading, listening and speaking, academic vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation each day. Students may also take elective courses that focus on improving certain language skills and learning specialized content. Through service learning, extracurricular activities, and class-based projects, students also gain insight about US and academic culture. These services are not included in CU tuition and fees. 

See an overview of programs on the IEC website.
