Intensive English Program

The Intensive English Program (IEP) is designed for international students who would like to improve their English skills and for those who are preparing to transfer to a college or university. Our IEP classes are small and interactive.

Reading, writing, grammar, speaking, listening, and pronunciation are taught to improve and refine your English skills. IEP classes are offered Monday- Friday between 10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Placement Test

Upon arrival to Seattle, all students must first take the English placement test. Depending on the results of that test, students will be advised regarding their class placement. If you have demonstrated college level English proficiency, you will not be required to take the test.

I stay at South Seattle College because they have many teachers who really care. The IEP classes at South Seattle really helped me a lot.
