Academic English Proficiency for International Graduate Students
717 Crawford Hall
Kurt Koenigsberger, Associate Dean
The Academic English Proficiency (AEP) Program for International Graduate Students provides English language development for students who need to raise their scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or equivalent evaluation, for acceptance into a CWRU graduate degree program. The successful applicant receives provisional acceptance into a graduate program, with the provision being satisfied by their achievement of the necessary language score.
The program's English language and speech production curriculum comprises two modules, each module lasting one semester and consisting of three three-credit courses. Students enroll in one module (one semester) or two modules (two semesters) depending on their incoming language achievement score. AEP students also enroll each semester in a supplementary, non-credit-bearing workshop designed to assist students in engaging effectively at CWRU.
