Nestled on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains in northern Idaho, is a community called Moscow, Idaho. Since 1889, Moscow has been the home of the state's major educational institution, the University of Idaho (UI).
The University of Idaho offers graduate and undergraduate programs, as well as a resident intensive English language program, the American Language and Culture Program (ALCP). There are 148 majors offered in the Colleges of Agriculture, Art and Architecture, Business and Economics, Education, Engineering and Computer Science, Law, Letters and Sciences, Mines and Earth Resources, and Natural Resources.
The University of Idaho ranks highly in a number of areas:
Academic Requirements: Admission to the University of Idaho is dependent on credentials that demonstrate the applicant's capacity to succeed academically at the university level. It is recognized that equivalents between curricula of other countries and that of the United States are essentially nonexistent. Therefore, UI evaluates foreign courses and academic transcripts in terms of approximations. Individual department requirements may be more rigorous than the general UI requirements. In those situations, final admission is based on the department's decision.
American Language and Culture Program: ALCP offers intensive English language instruction at six levels in five 8-week sessions annually. Special short-term programs are also offered upon request. Deferred admission may be granted to students who qualify academically, but who have not yet met UI's minimum language proficiency requirement. In deferred admission status, students enroll in ALCP to achieve the required language requirement prior to being granted full admission and commencing their degree programs. Concurrent Enrollment is also an option for students in deferred admission status. ALCP students in Levels 5 or 6 may, with approval, enroll as non-degree students for up to seven credits per semester of academic coursework, in addition to their regular ALCP classes. Once the student is granted full admission, the credits may be applied toward a UI degree program.
