Programs to match your goals

We offer a variety of programs at INTO Marshall to help you achieve your educational goals. The two types of programs for international students are English Language Programs and Academic Pathways.

Our English Language Programs are designed to improve your English skills for academic, personal or professional purposes. We offer semester-long English instruction for students looking to advance to degree programs and shorter programs for those looking to simply learn the language.

Our Academic Pathway programs are designed for international students with TOEFL or IELTS test scores lower than the requirement for direct entry to Marshall University. These programs help you improve your English skills while you begin classes toward your desired degree.
