American Language Program


Due to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) concerns, Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 intensive English Program classes will be offered 100% online. All instruction will be delivered through Zoom (a synchronous audio/video conferencing platform) that allows real-time interactions between an instructor and students from anywhere in the world. Classes will be held in the evening 5:00-10:00 PM (Pacific Time) so it will be in the morning for students in East Asia.  

Students who will study outside of the U.S. will not require a student (F-1) visa or an I-20 to be issued at this time.  Students in the U.S. may submit additional forms to transfer their I-20.
