Applying to the Intensive English Program

If you are interested in attending the IEP, there are two ways to submit an application:

1) Apply online!

You can fill out the online application by clicking the link above.  You may pay your $50 application fee online with a Master or VISA card at the link provided at the end of the online application process, or you may mail the fee

You have two options for the mailing of your I-20 immigration document. You may choose regular airmail at no expense and an expected delivery time of 3-12 weeks (depending on your location) or express mail at a reduced cost to you using the service, eShipGlobal. This service accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, PayPal, or a wire transfer. You will receive an email with the shipping options and an access link to eShipGlobal when your I-20 document is ready for mailing.

Please read the directions for the online application and online payment carefully. Your I-20 will arrive within a few weeks of the application process. You may still need to mail in the Statement of Financial Responsibility.

Driver’s license: If you receive an F-1 visa and want to apply for an Alabama driver’s license, there must be 160 days remaining on your I-20 and six months remaining on your passport. Please plan appropriately.

2) Print-ready application form

Important Information

HOUSING: We can assist students in finding housing. On-campus dormitory space is very hard to find. In part, it depends on the time of year. We also work with a private dormitory across the street from campus and with several clean, reasonably priced apartment complexes. There is a person on my staff who specializes in finding housing for students in the Intensive English Program.

DEADLINES: Applications involving I-20 forms should be received in our office 6 weeks before the start of a term.

RESTRICTIONS: The IEP is available to those who are at least 17 years of age and who have completed high school.

REFUNDS: Consistent with Auburn University policy for sessions less than a semester in length, no refund of tuition is allowed after the first 5 class days of an 8-week term. Students leaving the IEP during the first 5 days of a term will be refunded full tuition minus $45.50 per day that they attended. There is no discounted tuition for late arrival to the program.
