The Intensive English Program (IEP) at UNL now offers three regular sessions during the academic year to help students prepare for academic study at UNL. The fall session runs 15 weeks from the end of August to mid-December, and the spring semester runs 15 weeks from early January to the beginning of May. Fall and spring sessions follow the regular UNL academic year calendar which can be found, if you click here. Summer semester begins mid-May and runs 10 weeks until the end of July or first week of August. Check with the IEP office for the exact summer dates. 

The IEP offers 20 hours per-week of quality instruction in the core skill areas of grammar (usage), reading, writing, listening and speaking. Students have classes four hours each day from Monday to Thursday. Friday is commonly used as a study day for students to complete homework and assignments. 

In addition to regular classes, once or twice each semester students and faculty will participate in special cultural activities designed to give our students a well-rounded educational experience. Recent activities have included such events as a tour of the Nebraska state capitol, bowling, ice skating, a tour of Nebraska athletics facilities and a shopping trip to Nebraska Crossings outlet mall . Some of these events may take the place of classes during the week or may be offered outside of regular class time.
