About Western Washington University

Western offers the focus on students and the faculty access of a smaller college and the academic choice, resources, multicultural diversity, and room to grow of a large university.

With 15,000 students, 160 academic programs, and an energized campus community, Western offers the focus on students and the faculty access of a smaller college and the academic choice, resources, multicultural diversity, and room to grow of a large university.
Not so big that you feel like a number; not so small that you have to conform to a mold. Large enough for you to define yourself and small enough that you make a difference.

Western Washington University’s Bridge Program is designed to help international students make a successful transition into WWU classes.

Whether you are a first-year or transfer international student, you will experience a customized quarter of classes that provides extra support from WWU faculty as you take credit-bearing coursework.

Bridge students will also benefit from activities and curriculum that explores language, culture, and transitioning into an American university.

IEP helps students learn English for a variety of purposes, including regular enrollment and degree program study at Western Washington University.

IEP students are able to use all the resources of Western Washington University: the library, gym, student union, health center, outdoor playing fields and the Lakewood boating facility. Our offices and all of our classrooms are on campus, and IEP students are well integrated into university life.

IEP is a member of the American Association of Intensive English Programs (AAIEP). Western Washington University is accredited by Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).

Levels of English Level 1: Beginning Level 2: Early Intermediate Level 3: Intermediate Level 4: Early Advanced Level 5: Advanced Level 6: University Prep

We understand how important accurate placement is and we want each student to be in the best learning environment. Each new student goes through level placement assessments upon arrival. IEP students are placed in the levels at the beginning of each quarter and register for a combination of core and support classes.

Core Classes are the classes that are offered at each level of the program. The core classes help students learn and improve their English in all of the language skill areas. All students are required to take the core classes in their level. The core classes are Reading, Writing, Grammar, Listening, and Speaking.

English Support Classes are offered at every level and are designed to support the English language goals and standards at each level. All students are required to take English Support Classes. At some levels, there is only one English Support Class that all the students in that level take. In other levels, students have a choice among two or more English Support Classes.

International students and scholars are valued members of the Western community. International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) supports those students and scholars who journey from around the world to study and work at Western.

We provide assistance not only with immigration issues, but also with practical matters, social and cultural adjustment, and other challenges that come with life in a new country. We work to promote cross-cultural exchange throughout the University and invite all members of the Western community with an interest in global issues and identities to take part in our many events and activities.

With programs such as our Cross-Cultural Student Association, the International Buddy Program and International Cooking Classes we ensure that International students have plenty of fun!
