The International English Language Institute (IELI) is an intensive language program that helps non-native English learners develop the language skills necessary to achieve their academic goals. IELI serves as a bridge to help each student make the transition from language learner to successful student at an American university.

IELI offers instruction in English for Academic Purposes (EAP) in all core skill areas: grammar, writing, reading, listening and speaking. In addition, students take courses focusing on particular skill areas as well as a variety of topics designed to help them become familiar with the higher education system and American culture.

The mission of the International English Language Institute (IELI) at Humboldt State University is to help English learners develop the language skills necessary to achieve their academic goals.

The supportive learning environment at the IELI specializes in preparing students for university study as well as in enhancing intercultural understanding on campus and in the community.
