StepUp Intensive English is a summer or fall program for both conditionally-admitted and non-degree seeking students.
These students are academically qualified but need to increase their English proficiency to be able to be fully admitted into a university degree program.
StepUp involves intensive pre-matriculation coursework that provides comprehensive English language and cultural training. Our goal is to help multilingual students develop high-intermediate to advanced levels of academic English language proficiency so they can communicate effectively with teachers and other students on campus and as socialize effectively into the culture of a U.S. university.
If you receive Conditional Admissions to Lehigh University, you must complete StepUp Registration by the deadline stated in your departmental letter. If you have any questions about the conditions in your letter, please contact your graduate department or the ICAPE office (email@example.com).
