Academic & Immigration Advising

Intensive English Program

Academic Advising

Intensive English Program students are assigned a primary adviser, who provides guidance and support throughout their studies. Primary advisers can help students choose elective courses. They help students access services on campus. Primary advisers provide assistance with applying to universities and graduate schools. They also check-in with students about their attendance and academic progress.

Immigration Advising

The immigration adviser provides students with information about how to maintain their F-1 international student status. The immigration adviser answers questions related to program extensions, transferring in our out of the program, term exemptions (when students want to take a session off), reduced course loads, early authorized withdrawals, and on-campus employment regulations. The immigration adviser provides workshops and meets with students one-on-one to ensure that they understand all expectations, requirements, and regulations. The adviser also helps to smooth the transition between the Intensive English Program and the University of Colorado Boulder for those students who intend to matriculate in a degree program.
