The International Education Center at Diablo Valley College (IEC) opened in 2000, and since then has welcomed students from more than 40 countries. IEC works closely with DVC, and the English language program, homestay and activity programs are carefully planned to prepare international students for successful academic life. Students love the strong connection among faculty, staff and students. IEC has a very close relationship with DVC and many students who have intentions of attending DVC, but have not yet reached the English proficiency level required attend IEC first. At DVC students can obtain an associate's degree, certificate, or complete a transfer program to go on to completing their bachelor's degree at a 4 year university. The IEC offers 6 different levels of English and has 6 sessions per year that are each 8 weeks long. During the 8 week session students will improve their listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar skills in English.
