We welcome all students who wish to improve their English skills! We are now accepting F-1 student application for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020.

College of Marin’s Intensive English Program (IEP) has more than 35 years of success in educating English language learners.

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, coursework. The IEP prepares students to enter American colleges and universities and helps students improve English skills for business and general communication, and also to prepare for the Institutional TOEFL and TOEFL IBT tests.

Our safe and peaceful campus with its spacious walking paths and magnificent oak trees has great natural beauty, yet it is only 30 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 offers a full-time SEVIS-certified program where students gain skills in the subject areas of Grammar for Written and Oral Communication, Academic Writing with Reading, Listening and Speaking for Academic Success, and Topics in American Culture. Students who successfully complete the Advanced level are guaranteed admission in the College of Marin Credit Degree Program.
