IEC activities are more than a field trip: they are an opportunity for students to expand their experience abroad, practice English, learn more about Southern California, and build relationships with teachers, classmates, and residents.
Housing: International students can choose to live in an apartment with an American family or secure their own housing.
Homestays are arranged through three professional companies that carefully select warm and welcoming American families to host international students. Visit the IEC@OCC Housing page for more information.

IEC does not offer courses for absolute beginners to learn English. Prospective IEC students must have basic spelling skills, be able to write sentences and be able to read and understand simple paragraphs. While students who lack these skills can still take the IEC, they may be required to hire a personal instructor and repeat the foundation level course until these skills are mastered.
