Iowa Wesleyan University’s ESL Program helps international students with a lower English proficiency obtain conditional admission. Our goal is to successfully prepare international students for full engagement in the mission, values, and culture of Iowa Wesleyan University through high-quality immersive English for Academic Purposes instruction.
In addition to our classes, regular activities and special events have all been designed to ensure that students are academically and socially ready for university life and studies. For more information about the ESL Program, visit https://www.iw.edu/esl-program/ .
