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 prior to beginning /or during college or university-level programs of study;
  • 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 a face-to-face format. International students on F-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.
