The EAP program is designed for students who will transfer to a college or university for undergraduate or graduate studies. Students will learn academic skills like analyzing academic arguments, and critical thinking skills applied to reading and writing using university-level academic materials and interactive tools. Prepare to meet the unique challenges of American university life, and make a smooth transition into your future as a successful degree student now.

EAP runs year round, and is the highest level of our English language programs. Stay for multiple sessions to strengthen all the core academic skills sets necessary to be successful in a college or university program. You will take an assessment test to determine which level to begin. If you are placed in EAP, you can select it as your program choice for one session of the Academic Year Program (AYP) and save!
