  Language Support Check-in: the first step in getting started with ICC support

Before attending ICC work, students need to attend a brief language support check-in to get recommendations for appropriate work and be added to our contact-list for email announcements before the start of each class, workshop or seminar. If possible, students should bring TOEFL scores, including sub-scores (an official copy is not required, but is useful). Students who plan to work as TAs are strongly advised to have a check-in at the start of their first semester on campus.

Check-ins are offered most days during the two weeks before classes begin in August, and periodically throughout the semester. See the current schedule below:

PhD students: If you missed the check-in sessions below, you can still get started with ICC work. Call the ICC to find out when a make-up check-in might be available (412) 268-4979.
