JOLIET JUNIOR COLLEGE (IL) INTENSIVE ENGLISH FOR
ACADEMIC PURPOSES (IEAP) PROGRAM
Joliet Junior College was recently approved to allow F-1 students into
their Intensive English for Academic Purposes (IEAP) program. They are
currently accepting applications for the Fall 2014 semester. The IEAP curriculum has been at the
college since 2010 but was previously limited to local immigrants. Due to the high success rates of
those students (average college-level English grade is a 3.17 after completing program) Joliet Junior
College is thrilled to expand the program and welcome students on an F-1 visa. New courses
include American Culture I & II and a Language Laboratory course.
Our main campus is just 72km outside downtown Chicago, giving students the opportunity to
experience the exceptional cultural activity of the city. Joliet Junior College is also one of the few
community colleges in Illinois with on-campus student housing.

PARKLAND COLLEGE (IL) BEING AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT IS
NO SMALL FEAT
International students make up a significant portion of the student body at
Parkland. According to Parkland’s website, 350 students representing over 50 countries attend
school here. Life for an international student is different from that of a domestic student in many
ways. In addition to the typical stresses that any college student deals with, international students
may also find it difficult to feel comfortable in an unfamiliar environment. Parkland is well aware of
the difficulties these students face and has staff on hand to help them cope.
