IEP Sessions

The Intensive English Program (IEP) at UNL offers three regular sessions during the academic year. 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 calendar which can be found by clicking 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 in 514 Nebrasksa Hall 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, special cultural activities designed to give students a well-rounded educational experience are offered during each semester. Recent activities have included 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.
