IEP graduates are successful in their academic studies. They have the language, cultural, and academic skills needed to achieve their goals.
Studying in the IEP is an investment in your future. If you understand and use English well, you can focus on the content of your courses rather than the language. Since all IEP courses are non-credit, failing a course in the IEP will not harm your GPA.
Learning English is different from learning other subjects. Memorization of vocabulary and grammar rules is not enough. You must actively practice what you learn. Making mistakes is a part of language learning and is actually a sign that you are making progress!
Take advantage of all the fun activities NC State has to offer! There are many opportunities to meet other students, attend sporting events, and explore Raleigh.
