Intensive English Language Institute (IELI) Overview

Since 1979, the IELI at Creighton University has been helping students from different language backgrounds enhance their English skills.  Core courses in grammar, writing, reading, and speaking/listening focus on academic language skills across seven proficiency levels--from high beginning to advanced.

IELI classes meet four hours a day, Monday through Friday, between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.; additionally, there are regularly-scheduled co-curricular activities outside of the classroom. Five terms of eight weeks each are offered each year.

The mission of the Intensive English Language Institute is to provide students with quality instruction in English language and American culture in preparation for study at Creighton University.
