The mission of the intensive English language program at UVU is to help non-native English-speaking students to understand and successfully use academic English at an American university. To accomplish this goal, our faculty and coursework provide a broad range of excellent academic and social opportunities. These opportunities help students develop and show proficiency in the skills of reading, writing, grammar, and listening/speaking.
