Class Formats

Due to COVID-19, the IEP currently offers both online and hybrid classes.

The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) is temporarily allowing educational institutions to offer online and hybrid classes to international students. Hybrid classes consist of 50% online (virtual) and 50% face-to-face instruction.

Real Time Virtual (4 weeks online)

Hybrid (2 weeks online and 2 weeks face-to-face)

Starting January 2022, all IEP classes will be back to 100% face-to-face on West and Osceola campuses and continue to follow the CDC guidelines.

For online classes, there will be a separate program called VELT (Virtual Enhanced Language Training).



This program is intended for international students who do not reside in the United States and who wish to visit the United States during a school break.
