Representatives from Illinois Central College will offer a session about online degree options on Wednesday, May 21, 6 – 7 pm, at the Fondulac District Library (across from Target), 400 Richland Street, in East Peoria.
In addition to talking about various online degrees at ICC, online bachelor’s degree options offered by other colleges and universities will also be shared. The presentation will provide an overview of online learning as well as what it takes to be a successful student in an online class. Attendees will even hear about the basics of how to register for ICC classes and the timeline for registering for summer and fall classes. Time will be available for questions and answers.
“This event is geared for our local residents who may have started their college degree but didn’t get around to finishing it. We routinely hear from community members who have a few classes or a semester left to complete their degrees, and maybe their current job or other obligations prohibit them from driving to campus for class every day. We want them to know about online options that just might make it possible for them to finish their degrees,” explains Dr. Patrice Hess, associate dean of online learning at ICC.
“There may be others who are interested in getting their college degrees but have never considered pursuing them online because they didn’t know enough about it. Online education may not have existed for them when they finished high school,” Hess says. “This event will give basic information about online learning. That includes what kind of resources you need – like a computer and reliable internet access either at home or somewhere like your local library. If you’ve ever been curious about taking college classes online, then this is the time for you to come and find out more about it.”
The session is free, but registration is requested by emailing [email protected] or calling (309) 694-8888 by May 20. Attendees may enjoy snacks and will be eligible for door prizes.Next: Final show of 2013-14 Guest Artists Series features “War Bonds: The Songs and Letters of World War II”
