Pathway is the Intensive English Language Program (IELP) of the Corban Language Institute

Learning a new language is hard work but the Corban Language Institute is small and supportive environment to help students reach their goals.

Students live in an English immersion environment on the Corban University campus, have high quality teachers, supportive advisers and one-on-one tutors to help to help them learn what is needed to be successful at an American university.

A1 through B1 classes apply towards visa requirements but do not receive undergraduate credit (below 100 level).

When you reach B2 level, you can get Foreign Language elective credits which you can apply to a Bachelor of Arts degree. Then at the C level students begin to take at least one class with American students.

To graduate from the Pathway program, a student must achieve a 520 on the TOEFL. This is the minimum entrance score for Corban University’s Undergraduate program.
