ICC in the News :: Dept. of Education Pell Grant Experiment

Here are just a few links to stories published recently about the Dept. of Education’s experiment to allow low-income high school students to access the Federal Pell Grant to complete college credit classes. Historically, the Pell Grant has been awarded only to students with a high school diploma.

ICC is one of  44 colleges from 23 states nationwide selected to participate and expects to begin the program as soon as possible.
