English for Academic Purposes Admissions

English for Academic Purposes Program

The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program brings focus and attention to the various skills needed to study at an American university. 


Preparing You For Success

Our EAP program is an intensive program designed to assist students in not only acquiring English skills, but to prepare them for success in the academic program and beyond. We accept students into the EAP program on a continuing basis throughout the year. High school applicants are encouraged to apply early in their senior year.
