  • Title: About UCIEP - UCIEP: Best accredited English language study in the US
    Descriptive info: About UCIEP.. At a.. NAFSA.. Conference in 1967, directors of thirteen intensive English programs (IEPs) gathered to discuss problems facing their field.. The need for IEPs was being recognized, but the need for standards in those programs was not.. Ignorance regarding the education and experience necessary to prepare a teacher to provide appropriate instruction was leading to programs staffed with unqualified faculty.. A recognition that money could be made from ESL (English as a Second Language) students was enticing academic institutions and private enterprises to maximize income and minimize standards.. The lack of other units on campus similar to IEPs left directors feeling isolated as they struggled to develop appropriate structures and strategies to meet the challenges confronting them.. The result of that meeting was the creation of CIEP, later changed in name to UCIEP, an organization committed to setting and achieving high standards in IEPs, to educating institutions to the fact that adequate support of IEPs would lead to international students better prepared to succeed in their academic studies, and to providing a forum for IEP directors to exchange ideas, information and experiences.. For more than 40 years, UCIEP has been committed to this mission.. The thirteen founding directors have retired and the number of programs has quintupled.. There are now UCIEP members in thirty-one states and the District of Columbia, in densely populated metropolitan areas and in small rural communities, integrated into large research universities as well as small private colleges.. Yet the central vision has remained constant.. Each of the sixty-five programs in UCIEP is dedicated to maintaining the high standards set by the original thirteen.. Each  ...   students will also find the language instruction, facilities, and supportive environment necessary to have a rich and rewarding educational experience!.. Mission.. University and College Intensive English Programs (UCIEP), founded in 1967, is a consortium of intensive English programs that are governed by universities and colleges in the United States.. The mission of UCIEP is to promote excellence in IEP administration, curriculum, and instruction by.. - establishing guidelines for member programs,.. - encouraging and sponsoring professional development as well as cooperation and communication among member programs, and.. - advocating on behalf of member programs, the organization, and the field of teaching English as a second language.. Highlights of the UCIEP Guidelines.. - Adequate support of the intensive English program (IEP) by the college or university that governs it, including provision for suitable staff and physical facilities.. - An administrative and teaching staff with appropriate graduate degrees and experience.. - Appropriate orientation, training, and supervision of teaching assistants in IEPs that include them.. - Full-time, academic year appointments for administrative and core faculty to assure program integrity and continuity.. - Inclusion of the IEP staff in the institutions evaluation procedures.. - Standards for contact hours, levels, and curriculum.. - Ongoing professional development for faculty and staff.. - Adherence to.. guidelines for ethical recruitment practices.. - Professional standards for testing and placement procedures..

  • Title: Joint AAIEP, TESOL, and UCIEP Position Statement on Governance - UCIEP: Best accredited English language study in the US
    Descriptive info: Joint Position Statement on Governance for English Language Instruction at Institutions of Higher Education.. January 2010.. Institutions of higher education must constantly search for ways to provide high-quality instruction in the most economically efficient manner possible, including exploring alternatives to existing administrative structures and modes of delivery.. Because English language instruction is often seen as an ancillary service rather than as part of the core education provided by institutions of higher education, it is frequently scrutinized for ways to cut costs.. Increasingly, university.. -.. governed intensive English programs (IEPs) are also seen as means to increase general revenues through the recruitment of more full-tuition-paying international students and the offering of special non-degree programs.. As universities re-evaluate and make decisions about how to administer university-governed English language programs, it is crucial that they be aware of the standards for instructional practice and program administration developed by professional associations such as TESOL, the American Association of Intensive English Programs (AAIEP), and the Consortium of University and College Intensive English Programs (UCIEP), as well as accrediting bodies such as the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA) and the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET), that they seek highly qualified instructors with advanced degrees in the field, and that they promote the full integration of English language instruction programs into the university curriculum as a whole.. In evaluating alternatives for English language instruction,  ...   faculty that denigrates the field of English language education.. TESOL and its colleague associations strongly advocate for the integrity of all programs that provide English language instruction as well as partnerships and governance structures that support standards of instructional content and delivery.. English language instruction, in its various modalities of delivery, is a key component for the success of international education programs at institutions of higher education.. TESOL, UCIEP and AAIEP recommend that higher educational institutions recognize and value the importance and role of the English language programs not only in academic preparation and international student recruitment, but also in economic value.. A program devoted to the integrity and standards of the profession brings value to the institution far beyond immediate economic gains.. AAIEP, UCIEP, and TESOL urge communities of higher education in general to engage in dialogue about ways to promote English language competency and better serve multilingual and multicultural students.. Our three professional associations further urge our members working in higher education settings to be proactive in promoting awareness of professional practices and standards.. The rapid globalization of higher education means that these students must be explicitly considered as part of strategic plan discussions, accreditation reviews, and discussions of institutional effectiveness.. Ultimately, a university gains the greatest intellectual and economic benefit from programs that lead to the long-term retention and wider participation of multilingual students, not just short-term tuition payments..

  • Title: Visa Hints for Students - UCIEP: Best accredited English language study in the US
    Descriptive info: How to get your student (F) visa.. If you are applying for a student visa for the first time, an in-person interview is usually required.. June, July, and August are usually the busiest months, so it might be difficult to get an appointment during this time.. Don't wait until the last minute! You are encouraged to apply for your visa as soon as you know when you plan to travel.. Allow several weeks for planning and getting an appointment for the visa.. You can call the embassy or go to the embassy web site for information and instructions.. 1.. Applicants for a student visa must provide the following items when they go to the Embassy for the interview.. a.. A Form I-20 (included with your acceptance letter from your University or College).. b.. A completed DS-158 and DS-156 non-immigrant visa application with a photo of each person applying (forms available at embassy).. c.. A passport valid for at least 6 months beyond your expected stay in the US.. d.. A receipt for the visa processing fee for each applicant.. e.. Financial documents (such as bank books, account statements, tax documents) that show you have sufficient funds (money) to cover tuition and living expenses during your time in the US.. The embassy official might need evidence that there are no restrictions on the transfer of funds that would prevent the funds from being made available during the projected stay.. f.. Proof of your relationship to your spouse and children if you are married and/or have children.. 2.. Consuls (embassy officials) also want to see evidence that you have strong economic, social, family, or career ties to your home country.. Applicants for an F-1 or any non-immigrant visa must convince the official that:.. you have a residence in your home country.. you intend to return to that residence.. you intend to leave the US when your course of study is completed.. 3.. How to prepare for your visa interview.. In addition to the documents you present,  ...   more quickly and efficiently is helped by first-hand knowledge of the American culture and interaction with many native speakers.. + Talk about your choice of English program: show that you know about the University or College that you have applied to, and be able to explain your choice if you can.. Mention that some of the most advanced teaching methods and technical help in language learning can be found in the US.. + Do NOT say you want to go to the US just because: (i) your friends are there; (ii) you like American movies or some unimportant reason; (iii) you have family in the US.. Remember that an official has to see as many as 200 people a day.. Officials do not have a lot of time to discuss your application; they must make a quick decision.. Help them by being completely prepared.. 4.. What to do if the official refuses to give you a visa.. The most frequent reason for a visa refusal is that the official thinks you may not return to your home country.. It is not possible to say exactly what evidence you should take to convince the official that you will go home because applicants circumstances vary greatly.. Think again about your ties to your home country: family relationships, job, home or farm ownership, other commitments.. Is there any additional evidence that you could present? Did you explain your situation clearly? Did you answer all the questions?.. Consular officers have the responsibility for issuance or denial of visas.. If your visa is denied, you can re-apply.. If you decide to re-apply, you should be prepared to show additional evidence or explain in a different way how your situation has changed since the first application.. You should try at least twice.. If you are refused a second time, the probability that a third try will work is not very high.. Additional information is available at the Department of State web site:.. state.. gov.. and the INS web site:.. usdoj..
