Texas State Intensive English Language Program (TSIE)
The Texas State Intensive English (TSIE) Program offers non-credit intensive English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) courses for students who:
- want to improve their command of the English language before/during entering college or university-level programs of study;
- are international students participating in exchange through the Education Abroad program, academic programs at both graduate and undergraduate levels or a visiting scholar program; or
- would like to polish their English language abilities for academic readiness, test preparation, self-improvement, and/or cultural integration.
Classes emphasizing academic reading, writing, listening, and speaking, are offered during the fall, spring, and summer sessions in online and face to face formats. International students on F-1 and J-1 visas are required to enroll in a full course of study every fall and spring semester. When registering for TSIE classes, these students should consult International Student and Scholar Services for instructions on maintaining visa status.
