Intensive English Classes for Locals

U.S. Resident Options

Build Your English Skills!

U.S. residents are not required to maintain a full-time schedule. This allows for flexibility to select classes in target areas of English. Purchase of UT Tyler's insurance is not required but is available upon request. Students will need to purchase books for each class they select to attend. 

Academic English is for upper intermediate to advanced learners, and prepares the student for University enrollment.

Applicants will be contacted by the IELI Head Instructor with reminders for placement testing and orientation via email. The invoice will be emailed to you the week prior to class start. Fees are due by the end of the first week of classes. A payment plan is available.

Our academic program is currently only available for students at levels of upper intermediate and advanced (Levels 6-7).
