Our Intensive English Program (IEP) is an affordable, high quality English language study program that prepares students for academic life in college. We are located on Marietta campus of Chattahoochee Technical College, northwest of Atlanta, GA. The college is certified to issue I-20 for F-1 students in the program.

Students can be enrolled full-time or part-time depending on which ESL courses they desire.

Students who finish our program are ready to enter any college within the Technical College System of Georgia.

Upon completion of 30 credit hours, students can transfer easily to any public university in the state of Georgia.

We accept students on F-1, F-2, B-1, B-2, J-1, and J-2 visas in the Intensive English Program, as well as local residents, both documented and undocumented.
