English as a Second Language Program and Services

Does your institution have an Intensive English Program?

Suffolk’s Intensive English Program (IEP) has helped many students achieve their goals. The program is ideal for second-language learners who are preparing for college or for those wishing to increase their career options. The IEP program lasts 12 weeks for the fall and spring semesters. Students attend class for 18 hours per week (day or evening) and are required to reinforce the material learned in class in the online lab for an additional two hours per week. A total of 20 hours weekly is required. Three levels of instruction are offered: beginner, intermediate and advanced. All levels provide balanced instruction and active practice in all of the skill areas: comprehension, speaking (including pronunciation), grammar, reading and writing.

F-1 students who complete the Intensive English Program – Language Training can continue their education and earn an associate degree.

Suffolk Community College can issue an I-20 Certificate of Eligibility for F-1 Student Status to a student who has been admitted only to the Intensive English Program.

The college can provide courses of English as a Second Language to admitted students.
