Upon Health Career Program Acceptance

There are additional steps in order to enroll in Health Career Program classes once you have been “officially accepted”.

Step 1 Attend program registration

Plan your class schedule, obtain health information, complete the authorization for fingerprint and background check, and get questions answered. If unable to attend, please call (309) 690-7530.

Step 2 Schedule your IWIRC appointment

Illinois Central College student medical records are kept on file at the Illinois Work Injury Resource Center (IWIRC) in Peoria.
