The English Language Program offers intensive English courses primarily for international students who plan to enter degree programs at K-State. However, it also accepts students who wish to come for English instruction only.

The program offers five levels of full-time intensive English. It also offers advanced part-time courses specifically for students who need support in English while taking classes in their degree field (DAS 176, 177, and 178).

International undergraduate applicants do not have to submit a TOEFL score.  They can be admitted on their academic credentials only.  Once they arrive at K-State, if students do not provide other evidence of English proficiency, they must take the English Proficiency Test (EPT).  If their test scores place them in English classes, they must enroll in them.  This is the condition for beginning academic work.  The admission policy follows below:

If you meet academic requirements, Kansas State University can admit you with no proof of English proficiency.  Once you arrive, you will be required to take the English Proficiency Test (EPT).  The results of the EPT will determine if you need to study English, either full-time or part-time, or if you are ready to begin full-time university classes.  This is to make sure that you have the necessary English skills to be successful in your career here at K-State.

The program also screens the English proficiency of incoming non-native speakers of English. For other information and a brochure, write or e-mail the English Language Program at the addresses above.
