IEC StudentsReceiving Your IEC Certificate

Depending on how many weeks students attend classes, IEC students can receive one of two certificates:

  • Certificate of Completion:  Students who enroll for at least 80% of the program can receive a Certificate of Completion. For example, if the session is ten weeks long, students must enroll for at least eight weeks of the program.
  • Certificate of Participation:  Students who enroll for less than 80% of the program can receive a Certificate of Participation. For example, if the session is ten weeks long, and students enroll for seven or fewer weeks, they can receive a Certificate of Participation.

Below is a chart showing the number of weeks students would need to complete to receive a Certificate of Completion depending on the length of the session.

In order to receive a Certificate of Completion or a Certificate of Participation, students must do the following:

  • have at least 80% attendance overall in their classes. Attendance is taken in General Level classes, Oral Communications classes, and Elective classes.
  • pass all classes. If you get an F in any of your classes, you will not receive a certificate.
  • pay all tuition and fees.

Students usually receive their certificate at the end of their study in the IEC program or at the end of the semester. If you study for both an A session and a B session, you would receive your certificate at the end of the B Session. Students who do not have at least 80% attendance and/or do not pass all their classes will not receive a certificate.

 

IEC CERTIFICATE CEREMONY: The Fall A certificate ceremony will be held on Thursday, October 12th, at 3pm. Those students who enrolled for the full Fall semester will receive one certificate covering both Fall A and B, at the ceremony held the end of Fall B. If a student received a failing grade or fell below 80% attendance, they will not receive a certificate for that session.
