    IEC is the only organization that talks to the US Congress and the Department of Education on behalf of public and private, non-profit international colleges and universities that enroll American students. IEC works with NAFSA, but has a distinctly different, unique focus on the U.S. financial aid programs that Americans need to enroll in degree programs.


    Members can view previous editions of IEC newsletters, alerts and key information from conferences and training sessions through a dedicated, password-protected section of the IEC website. The site also offers opportunities to join "practice communities" to share theme-based information and updates among members.


    Members receive a monthly email newsletter, as well as the latest policy updates and alerts relevant to financial aid for their US students. They are the first to know about important changes, and IEC gets straight to the key points of information members need.


    IEC holds an annual membership conference and workshop to provide an opportunity for members to learn about key issues affecting the financing of international education, the latest developments as Congress and the USDOE consider changes that affect IEC members, and to interact with financial aid professionals from around the globe.

    Regular training events take place both in Washington DC, to maximize the opportunity to interact with the Department of Education and other U.S.-based experts, and at international locations. As a member, you benefit from discounted rates to these invaluable events and the opportunity to help set the agenda. IEC events complement and build on training offered directly by the U.S. Department of Education, such as the annual Federal Student Aid Conference, ensuring a dedicated focus on "foreign school" topics.


    One of IEC’s goals is to enhance the image of the membership by informing the public of their stories. IEC accomplishes this by issuing press releases about significant events and providing the education media world with informational materials.


    Campaigns are conducted to inform policy makers and the media as a particular issue arises which affects our members. Working with IEC, you can be assured that a coordinated, unified message will be sent.
