Welcome to the Intensive English and Orientation Program (IEOP) at Iowa State University!  IEOP is an intensive English program (IEP) that has been serving international students for over 50 years and our students have come from over 93 countries.  We offer high quality English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction that caters to non-native English speakers, dedicated instructors, and opportunities to talk with native speakers.

Studying in IEOP will improve your English and help you achieve your academic goals.  At Iowa State you will be surrounded by native speakers as well as a friendly multicultural population.  As a student in IEOP you will take engaging and interactive classes, make new friends, experience American culture, and prepare yourself for your academic future.
