Entering Academic Studies
Please note that unless your proficiency score places you in the advanced class, you will require more than one session of study in the IEP in order to be prepared for academic courses. Those students who are placed in the lower level classes will normally require two or more sessions in the IEP in order to reach the TOEFL level required by University of Central Missouri. All students who enter the U.S. on an I-20 issued by the Intensive English Program must be enrolled as full-time students in the IEP until such time as they successfully complete the program.
Special option for some advanced students
With the written recommendation of the Intensive English Program Director, students at the advanced level who have completed at least one eight week session in the IEP may audit or enroll in one university course in addition to their IEP classes if the department offering the course allows it.
<sup>1</sup>Release of Records is a form which allows UCM to look at your education records.
<sup>2</sup>Financial Statement is a form which states the student, or student's sponsor, has the funds to pay for the educational costs.
*Please note that admission into the Intensive English Program does not guarantee admission into an academic program at University of Central Missouri. Admission to the University requires a separate application from the Office of International Admissions.
