We welcome all students who wish to improve their academic English skills!

College of Marin has been educating students for over 90 years! At College of Marin we have helped students from over 100 countries learn English and prepare for continued study in the United States. The Intensive English Program (IEP) supports students as they build their English skills and work toward their academic dreams!

IEP students receive excellent instruction, fun and challenging coursework, and benefit from the support of College of Marin’s Academic Counselors, Transfer Center, and International Education Office. IEP students are encouraged to participate in College of Marin programming, including bi-weekly Community Hour events, shows and lectures, athletics, transfer-preparedness workshops, and advising from UC Berkeley and other institutions.

Program Details

Classes may vary between levels; however, each level includes courses to improve a student’s writing, grammar, vocabulary, reading, and speaking. Students in levels 60–80 will have the added benefit of including pre-approved classes with native English speakers.  Often these classes will serve students to meet degree requirements later in their academic program.
