Part-Time EAP Program

The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program is for students whose first language is not English and who want to improve academic English for university.

An option to participate in EAP courses on a part-time basis exists for those already living and working in the United States or who hold a valid visa. Current Lipscomb University students whose first language is not English may also participate. Courses are offered throughout the week and provide students opportunities to refine language skills that support their academic and professional goals. We have courses to meet a variety of needs—from au pairs who want to improve their English conversation to professionals looking to improve their writing skills.


We offer three levels of intensive English courses - intermediate to advanced. Students are typically placed in one level of courses. Some students may be placed in a particular course based on assessment scores so that they can receive an appropriate level of support.


Part-Time Tuition

If you are interested in learning English on a part-time basis (only for those who are currently in the United States and do not require a visa), we offer English classes during the day and at night. Please contact us for more information! 

*Tuition and fees are subject to change. Lipscomb University reserves the right to change fees before charges are incurred by the student.
