CEP courses during the Fall, 2021 semester will be hybrid (in-person and online)!

Comprehensive English Program

The Comprehensive English Program is an intensive English program offered to non-native, English-speaking students at all levels of proficiency. Full-time and part-time study options are available.

The Comprehensive English Program (CEP) is designed for students at all levels of English proficiency. Fall 2021 classes will be taught remotely by our experienced ELI faculty. Some may be offered in a hybrid format. Build on what you learn with faculty-led workshops in subjects such as speaking, listening, and grammar. Students can also get involved in extracurricular activities such as conversation groups and remote tours.   

Currently, we are accepting transfer student I-20 applications for the Fall 2021 term. The deadline for overseas students has passed. For more information, click here or contact us at eli@nyu.edu.

Before registering for courses, take a free English language assessment by clicking the button below. The assessment will help to place you in the correct level.
