American Language Program

This Fall, the ALP welcomes new students to campus! We are offering in-person classes and issuing I-20s for students who need a student (F-1) visa to enter the U.S. Students outside the U.S are still able to take our classes online via Zoom (HyFlex teaching mode). 

In Spring Semester 2022, ALP classes will be back to 100% face-to-face instruction. We look forward to seeing you in our classrooms soon!
