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.
The Environmental Science area of study at Illinois Central College is designed for students planning to transfer to a senior college or university for completion of a baccalaureate degree. During the two years at Illinois Central College, the student concentrates on building a strong foundation in the sciences and mathematics, and meets the requirements for the Associate in Science degree. The Environmental Science program is designed to prepare the student for a wide range of career opportunities. In addition to the positions traditionally available in laboratories that engage in environmental testing, professional careers exist within governmental agencies, including: (1) state and national departments of the EPA; (2) local and state planning departments; (3) state geological and natural history surveys; (4) the National Park Service; (5) soil and water conservation districts; (6) local and state health departments; (7) U.S. Geological Survey; (8) Departments of Natural Resources; and (9) OSHA. Further, various privately funded organizations maintain a staff of professionally trained environmental scientists.
