Important Dates & Deadlines

Number of Sessions Each Year

The IEP has 6 sessions each year beginning in January, March, June, July, August, and October.  In spring and fall, our sessions are 8 weeks long.  In summer, students can apply for 4-week sessions or an 8-week session.  Shorter (4-week) programs may be available at other times by special arrangement.  Also, we are happy to make arrangements for group programs.  Please contact us at if you have questions.

Full time-students study 20 hours each week.  Part-time students study between 4 and 16 hours a week.

Application Deadlines

We strongly recommend that students applying from outside of the United States apply 8 weeks before their program start date so that they have plenty of time to get their visas.  However, we will accept applications up to 4 weeks before the program start date, but if you apply late we cannot guarantee that you will get your visa on time.
