Placement: To determine the English level of each new student, IEC offers a placement test during orientation. Students are tested on their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and grammar abilities in English.

Unfortunately IEC does not offer courses for true beginners of English language learning. Prospective IEC students should have basic spelling skills, be able to write sentences, and be able to read and understand simple paragraphs. While students without these skills can still attend IEC, they should be prepared to hire a personal tutor and repeat the foundation level class until these skills are mastered. 

Conditional Admission

Students who do not have proof of English proficiency may receive conditional admission to OCC. In this case, after receipt and review of the IEC@OCC application and the OCC International Student application, OCC will issue a “Letter of Conditional Admission” stating the student has met all the academic requirements of OCC and will be fully admitted once the student provides proof of his/her English language proficiency. Conditionally admitted students may also be fully admitted into OCC once they have completed the highest level of English at IEC, which is the level Advanced B. In this case, the Advanced B level will be accepted in lieu of a proficiency exam.  Learn more about applying to OCC.
