Intercultural Communication Center Fall 2014 Schedule
The following services are offered for continuing students during the academic year and on a limited basis during summer session one.

Students who have completed a check-in and are on the ICC mailing list will get weekly notices about all seminars, as well as announcements about workshops that are appropriate for each student (generally based on TOEFL speaking or ITA test scores). Additional sections of workshops/seminars (and possibly new seminars) will be added continuously throughout the semester to meet student needs. The website will be periodically updated to reflect changes.

Registration is required for all workshops and seminars. To register, respond to the email notices from eslhelp @ andrew.cmu.edu, call the ICC at x8-4979, send email to eslhelp @ andrew.cmu.edu, or visit our office in 308 Warner Hall.

The following link provides guidelines to help students better understand what is expected of participants in ICC workshops and seminars.
