Walla Walla Community College’s Intensive English Language Program (IELP) supports international students who are preparing to study in a U.S. college/university or assists you in reaching your own personal or career goals.

Our classes are small and interactive. Most of our students who complete our Intensive English Language Program enroll in the 2 + 2 Transfer Program and then transfer to universities across the United States.

Benefits of WWCC’s Intensive English Language Program
