The Manhattan College IPP offers a challenging and enriching academic environment which serves as the perfect starting point for students to begin their degree studies. IPP students will have 18 to 21 hours of intensive ESL instruction per week. In addition to English study, IPP students will take one or two credit-bearing courses per semester.

There are two levels within the International Pathway Program (IPP), level 005 and level 006. Both IPP 005 and IPP 006 can lead to full-time undergraduate study at Manhattan College. The pathway to full-time undergraduate study looks like this: IPP 005 pointing to IPP 006 leads to full time undergraduate study
