Illinois Central College Hosts “Sign-Up Saturday” January 14

Illinois Central College will have extended enrollment hours for potential and current students during “Sign-Up Saturday” on January 14 from 9 am to 2 pm at the Student Services Departments on the East Peoria Campus.

Participants can apply, test, enroll, purchase books, and speak with an academic advisor and financial aid representatives. No appointment is necessary. Spring semester 2017 classes begin on Tues., January 17.

The enrollment process includes: Completing and processing an ICC application, completing placement testing, meeting with an advisor to develop a class schedule, filling out financial aid paperwork and setting up a payment plan, and getting an official ICC identification card.

Student Services staff members also will be available to assist with accessing and printing class schedules and walking students through their schedules to locate classrooms.

Potential students should fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) four to five days prior to coming to campus. ICC Financial Assistance staff is available to answer questions about completing the FAFSA.

In order to complete all of the steps of admission and enrollment, participants should come prepared with the following items:

  • A valid photo ID (driver’s license, passport, military ID, or other government-issued ID).
  • Checkbook or credit card to set up a payment plan.
  • In addition, potential students wishing to fill out a FAFSA also should bring with them: 2015 tax returns, W-2 forms and current bank statements. (If the participant is aged 24 or younger, the parents’ social security cards, 2015 tax returns, W-2 forms and current bank statements also are necessary.)

“Sign-Up Saturday” is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. The total time needed to complete all of the steps depends on the participant’s individual needs. Advisors will be available to help students wishing to enroll on a full-time basis (12 hours or more) in most majors and those students wishing to enroll on a part-time basis. However, follow-up appointments with an advisor may be necessary in some cases. Some programs require restricted enrollment. Therefore, only general education or prerequisite courses will be available to students interested in those programs.

For those interested in financial assistance, ICC has scholarships available for the 2017-2018 academic year. To be eligible for the scholarships, students must first apply to ICC online at The scholarship application opens on Jan. 15.
