About the International English Center

IECbuildingThe International English Center (IEC), established in 1975, provides an intensive English program especially designed for students who are preparing to enter a college or university in the United States. In the classroom, students learn English via a multi-skills approach, with classes in listening/speaking, reading, writing and grammar each day.  Students may also take elective courses that focus on improving certain language skills and learning specialized content. In addition to classes, the International English Center offers cultural, community, and sports activities that allow the student to explore U.S. culture in a friendly and safe environment. The IEC is accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA) and is a member of the Consortium of University English Programs (UCIEP) and the American Association of Intensive English Programs (AAIEP).

The IEC operates under the guidance of the Division of Continuing Education, which is a college-level organizational unit of the University of Colorado Boulder. Because the IEC is part of the university, there are many opportunities to interact with its student population. IEC students join university clubs, attend student festivals and public seminars and may visit a university class as part of an assignment or even enroll in a university class through the ACCESS program.
