The Intensive English Language Program (IELP) at the University of Findlay has earned 10-year reaccreditation from the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA). Findlay is the second university in Ohio to receive the 10-year status and one of seven IELP programs in Ohio to be accredited by CEA.
CEA is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accrediting agency for English language programs and institutions in the United States. Founded in 1999 by English language professionals as a specialized accrediting agency, the purpose is to provide a means for improving the quality of English language teaching and administration through accepted standards. CEA conducts accreditation reviews in the U.S. and internationally.
“In reviewing a program or institution, the Commission seeks to determine that it provides the student services and programs described in its materials; is student centered; provides a program that supports its mission; and has the resources, fiscal and human, to assure that students are well served through meeting the CEA Standards for English Language Programs and Institutions,” the CEA notification letter stated.
University of Findlay’s IELP offers courses from basic through advanced levels which give students the opportunity to earn general elective and undergraduate elective credits while preparing students for any of Findlay’s undergraduate programs or graduate work. In addition to degree-seeking students, IELP also serves part-time and self-improvement students. Findlay offers an English Language Learner Support Center that offers one-on-one tutoring and a multimedia lab that hosts composition, communication, and listening classes.
