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.


Engineering

The Engineering area of study at Illinois Central College is designed for students planning to transfer to a 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.

* See specific requirements for the Associate in Science Degree.

Entry to many university engineering programs at the junior level requires additional engineering courses in the first two years.  Students who complete the requirements for the Associate in Science degree may find that an additional year of study may be necessary after transferring if the engineering courses are not completed at ICC.  Depending upon where a student is intending to transfer, it may be more beneficial to complete the Associate in Engineering Science Degree.  All engineering students should meet with an engineering advisor as early as possible to determine which degree would be more beneficial.
