Basic Information

Central Oregon Community College is one of seven community college members belonging to the Oregon International Education Consortium (OIEC), which sponsors the Spring Quarter in London program. The OIEC accepts up to 30 students for the program from the member colleges in Oregon. Space, therefore, is limited and students are accepted on a first-come basis.

American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS) is our partner institution that makes all program arrangements, from travel to insurance to housing. All program costs and payments are made to AIFS.

The OIEC makes all academic arrangements, including course offerings, grade reporting and faculty selection you are taught by Oregon instructors who accompany you to London.

All credit fees and tuition costs are paid to COCC and you register as usual at COCC from the courses listed on the COURSE OFFERINGS.
