South Korean Student at UW-Marinette

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Colleges Intensive English Program (IEP) and thank you for your interest in intensive English as a Second Language study at UW Colleges.  We have Intensive English Programs located on our UW-Marinette and UW-Marshfield campuses.

We encourage you to explore all of the wonderful aspects of life at UW-Marinette and UW-Marshfield, like student apartments and classes, regular events and activities, and our experienced, professional instructors and staff. Your university experience at UW-Marinette and UW-Marshfield begins with full week of English study, including a one-credit introductory academic course that counts towards your degree! Our program is arranged so you have evenings and weekends free to meet friends and practice your English in our safe and welcoming community.

Our goal is to encourage you to experience university life and American culture. As a UW-Marinette or UW-Marshfield student, you may use the computing facilities, libraries and recreational facilities on campus. You are also welcome to join any student organization and club, especially the Multicultural Club. We also arrange outings and activities designed to help you meet new friends and experience all of what Wisconsin has to offer.

We’ll pick you up from the airport when you arrive and help you get settled into our student apartments. And we arrange mentor families to help you get acclimated.

Our Intensive English Program provides small classes, academic counseling, and conditional admission to undergraduate study at UW-Marinette, UW-Marshfield or any of our other 11 UW Colleges campuses – without a TOEFL score. Once you transition from our Intensive English Program and into our academic program you are eligible for our Guaranteed Transfer Program, which provides a guaranteed pathway to all University of Wisconsin schools, including UW-Madison, which is one of the top universities in the world.
