The mission of the MSU Billings Intensive English Language Program (IELP) is to provide exemplary English language education and support services to enable individuals, whose native language is not English, to acquire college-level English language proficiency as well as academic, social, and cultural skills needed for success in U.S. higher education settings.

As part of the IELP, events are planned throughout the year to enable all IELP students to meet new friends from around the world while experiencing unique western American culture and activities such as attending a western rodeo or Native American Pow-Wow, visiting the world famous Yellowstone National Park, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, snow skiing, and mountain hiking.
