Course Permission Request
In order to take an ICC course with a pre-requisite you completed at either high school or another college/university, we will need proof. Pre-requisites for ICC courses can be found in either our Complete Course Descriptions or our current Class Schedule.
Math Bridge Program
The ICC Math Bridge Program is designed to help future or current ICC students who are close to placing into the required math course for their major and need to refresh or strengthen their mathematical skills. We use ALEKS-PPL (an online, adaptive self-paced platform) to refresh math skills and, hopefully, improve placement.
Field Trip Interest
Our next Field Trip will be to the Rocky Mountains and is set for July 27 – August 12, 2018. Please fill out the Field Trip Interest Form and we’ll send you the details once they are available.
Students identified as biological science majors take two years of basic work, followed by a major in a specific area of interest. Many occupations depend on an interest in and an aptitude for life science, including: forester, biochemist, biologist, fish and wildlife service, zoologist, botanist, ecologist, oceanographer, teacher, pharmacologist, etc. Biology majors are usually interested in the study of organisms and life functions, and have a great interest in the natural world. Topics pursued range from subcellular particles to vast populations. Since each living organism is part of a larger interacting system, biology is intertwined with other important fields of study. Knowledge of biology is centered on understanding much of the world and life around us.
