Established in 1982 the Intensive English Language Center (IELC) provides English language instruction to students preparing for university study and to students wishing to improve their general English ability.
IELC staff and faculty are dedicated to making sure that you have a rewarding and exciting experience while you are studying with us. Students are able to meet the majority of their needs right on campus.
You may enter Nevada universities at the undergraduate level without English proficiency test score (TOEFL, IELTS, PEARSON) after completing the IELC program.
If you are already academically qualified for university admission (undergraduate) but you do not have the required English proficiency score, you may receive conditional admission to your university program. Your admission documents will state that you will begin academic coursework after completion of the English requirement.
