2021 Veterans Day

Illinois Central College extends its utmost gratitude to our heroes this Veterans Day week by offering a free meal to those who served our country. ICC student and employee veterans were sent an email with directions to claim their complimentary meal voucher on Monday, November 8. Meal vouchers can be redeemed in the Canteen Dining Halls on both campuses Nov. 8- 12. Thank you, veterans, for your service and sacrifice.

We want to help you make the transition from military to civilian life. We will guide you to the resources and all the benefits available to you, whether you have completed your service and are enrolling for the first time, interrupted your education to serve and are now returning to ICC, or began your studies elsewhere and are transferring to ICC. We want to help you make the most of your ICC experience.

You may be eligible to receive benefits through one or more of the following educational programs:
