About Intensive English Program

Valencia College provides an Intensive English Program (IEP) for students ages 15 and above in two locations, west and south of Orlando. We accept students at all language levels from beginner to advanced. Students interested in a degree at Valencia who need to improve their English can start with the Intensive English Program and then transfer into a Valencia degree program.

The program is accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA) which is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accrediting agency for English Language Programs and institutions in the U.S. Achieving accreditation through the CEA requires meeting certain standards. Accreditation is not an easy process, and CEA-accredited programs are among the best, not only in the U.S.A but also worldwide.
