Preparing for the one-week intensive

When considering any intensive course, be sure to read “Is a One-Week Intensive Right for Me?” (below) to help you determine if this format suits you.

  • One-Week Intensive courses may be combined with other online and/or evening courses towards TESOL certificates and/or the Washington State ELL Endorsement.
  • Credits earned may be protected for graduate status.
