Steps To Enrollment

Step 1 Apply to ICC

Apply Online

The ICC application requires a US social security number.  If you do not have one, contact the Virtual Campus staff for assistance – [email protected] or 309-694-8888.

Once your application is processed, a confirmation email is sent to your personal email address.  After you receive your confirmation email, you will have access to ICC eServices and you will begin receiving email communication at an ICC student email address assigned to you.

To learn more about your ICC eServices, and email, visit the First Time User website or go to MyICC and click on the First Time User link.

Step 2 Take the Academic Placement Tests

Course pre-requisites may be met with academic placement testing, college entry test scores, prior college/university transcripts, and/or department approval.  ICC requires reading and math pre-requisites which could be satisfied by placement testing or other methods.

To determine if you are required to take placement tests or to discuss options for using college entry test scores or prior college/university transcripts to satisfy pre-requisites, contact the Virtual Campus staff, [email protected] or 309-694-8888

For more information about testing, see the Placement Testing web page, and the “Do I need a placement test?” link.

If placement testing is required, testing is available at all ICC campuses and can be arranged at an approved testing center near you if you are not in the East Peoria/Peoria, Illinois area.

To make an on campus testing appointment online, please follow these instructions.  To arrange for testing at an approved testing center near you, contact the Virtual Campus staff, [email protected] or 309-694-8888

Step 3 Apply for Financial Assistance

Step 4 Apply for a Foundation Scholarship

The ICC Educational Foundation awards over 600 scholarships each year! To apply, simply fill out the online application between January 15 and April 1. Some scholarships may be available year-round.
