Please plan to arrive at least one week before the start of the term. All new IELP students must take the placement test, register, and attend classes during the first week of the term.

New students who cannot arrive in Portland for the placement test are required to update their admission to the next term. Students holding F-1 visas in this situation must not travel to the U.S., as they will violate the terms of their F-1 student visa status. To update your admission to the next term, contact the IELP Admissions Coordinator at
