Now is a great time to enroll, with the college’s spring incentives new full-time students who register by December 23 will get their choice of a free class or laptop computer at no cost. Part-time students will receive $200 off tuition. The college has also added reduced tuition incentives for current students who continue their studies with EICC. With new changes this fall we’re offering more online options than ever, providing the up-most flexibility. These options include traditional Online courses you can access anytime, anywhere, 24/7, as well as Live Online classes delivered in real time via the free computer application, Zoom.
EICC makes a quality education possible for everyone and has become the first choice for students planning their future. Tuition continues to be one of the most competitive in the state of Iowa, thousands of dollars less than the four-year colleges and technical institutes. Financial aid is also available.
EICC’s career technology programs are designed to lead the student directly into the job market. The programs range from advanced manufacturing and truck driving to nursing and business, with everything else in between.
The colleges maintain formal transfer agreements with the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, Western Illinois University, St. Ambrose University and others. These agreements mean the credits that college transfer students earn here easily transfer upon graduation.
In addition, we have a Degree Plan designed specifically for adults. There are three different programs to choose from, our general Associate in Arts Degree, Associate in Arts Degree with a Business Concentration, or our Associate in Applied Science Degree in Business.
The college has conveniently laid out the courses students need to take to complete the program in two, three or four-year paths. Those plans can be adapted so if someone choosing to either speed up or slow down their path in the future, has the flexibility to do so.
