Welcome to the Intensive English Language Program (IELP), where you can study English in an urban university.


Whether you want to improve your English to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree at an American university or want to study English for personal or professional reasons, the IELP can help you. The IELP is fully integrated into Portland State University (PSU). IELP students benefit from access to all of the extracurricular activities, services, and resources available to PSU students. For example, IELP students can join student clubs, live in a residence hall, and use the library, computer labs, and recreation center. Additionally, students who successfully complete the Pathway Program fulfill PSU’s language proficiency requirement for undergraduate admission.
