MEI offers rigorous courses of study while providing a positive and supportive learning community and promoting cross-cultural understanding.
Two regular instructional programs are offered for provisionally admitted and prospective undergraduate and graduate students who are non-native speakers of English: a semi-intensive program for provisionally admitted students and a full-time intensive program for provisionally admitted or prospective students.
Semi-Intensive (UMEI005): This course is open only to students who are admitted to the University of Maryland. Students who are provisionally admitted to the University must satisfactorily complete UMEI005 in their first semester in order to become fully admitted, full-time students at the University. UMEI005 classes meet five days a week, two hours a day. The program is designed especially to strengthen the language skills necessary for academic work at the University of Maryland. No credit is given toward any university degree.
