Welcome to College of Marin Intensive English Program (IEP)
College of Marin’s Intensive English Program (IEP) has more than 30 years of success educating English language learners. We welcome new and returning F-1 international students, and F-1 transfer students from other schools and local residents who wish to improve English language skills.
Located in the friendly city of Novato on the beautiful College of Marin Indian Valley Campus, Intensive English Program students enjoy small classes, excellent instructors, and fun, but challenging, course work. The IEP prepares students to enter American colleges and universities and helps its student to improve English skills for business and general communication ability, and also to prepare for the Institutional TOEFL and TOEFL IBT tests.
Our safe and peaceful campus with its sparkling creeks and magnificent oak trees has great natural beauty, yet it is only 20 minutes away from the internationally famous Golden Gate Bridge and all the excitement of San Francisco.
The IEP offers two 16-week semesters each year for F-1 students. Each semester has 20 hours per week total instruction time, divided into four subject areas of Grammar for Written and Oral Communication, Writing with Reading, Speaking/Listening/Pronunciation. and Idioms and TOEFL Preparation. IEP students are placed into one of three class levels—High Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced—based on placement tests the first week of the semester. Each semester students progress through the program by completing all assignments and by testing into the next level. Students who complete the Advanced level are guaranteed admission in the the College of Marin’s Credit Program.
