The Academic English Program (formerly known as ESL, CELL, and IEP) has been offering pathway courses for language learners prior to pursuing their undergraduate and graduate degrees at UNA. To better serve the growing need for online language education, we have been working on creating QM certified online courses to offer online especially to our partner schools abroad. These courses are parallel to our existing courses in their learning goals, objectives, and outcomes; therefore, will not need approval from the curriculum committee, since these courses have been approved already some years back.

Existing IEP courses will now be scheduled as online section offerings in addition to the traditional on campus section offerings.
