Undergraduate international students are students who have completed a secondary school and are pursuing a bachelor’s degree, and who have or will be applying for a temporary U.S. visa, such as an F-1 or J-1.
You are a graduate student if you have completed or will complete a four-year bachelor’s degree program or its equivalent at a college or university prior to attending the University of Colorado Boulder.
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 U.S. and academic culture. These services are not included in CU tuition and fees.
