*Contact for more details before submitting an application for the summer semester. Level 4 is typically not offered during the summer due to low demand. The summer session is usually recommended for returning students only due to its shortened schedule and intensive nature. Summer is best for motivated new students who have at least a TOEFL iBT 70 or place into our Levels 5 and 6.

English Language Study Application Process


Only COMPLETE applications (with all documents uploaded) are reviewed for acceptance, so please make sure that you have uploaded all required documents. If you are accepted, your application will be forwarded to our admissions staff for immigration review. After all documents are verified, our admissions staff will email you the necessary documents (I-20, etc.) to make your visa appointment at your local U.S. consulate or embassy. Make sure you remember to:

  • Upload a copy of your high school diploma or proof of your college courses in English.
  • Provide proof of your English Proficiency (official scores must be dated within the last calendar year).
  • Pay your application fee.

IEP Semester Dates

Note that IEP semester dates differ slightly from the NC State academic calendar.
