ILEAP: Intensive Language Experience in America Program

ILEAP: Intensive Language Experience in America Program provides students with a short-term study abroad experience on Nazareth’s vibrant American campus. This one-semester or year-long program consists of instruction in English language and American culture at the Nazareth English Language Institute, which includes the core courses and electives provided by ELI teaching faculty as well as by Nazareth College academic faculty members. Students at a higher level of language proficiency can take the bridge program, in which they simultaneously take ELI courses and credit-bearing academic courses. After successfully completing ILEAP, participants are awarded a Nazareth ELI certificate of completion and credits from their home institutions.

Who’s eligible: University students from Nazareth College’s partner institutions or those who are interested in taking intensive language training courses to improve their English language proficiency are welcome to apply for this program.

Deadline: Apply by mid-October for the spring semester, or by mid-April for the fall semester.
