What Can I Expect As a Construction Management Student?

How Am I Going to Manage This?

  • What if I am working while going to school?

    We have you covered. Many of our students are working adults who balance life and school. We have great resources on campus to help keep you going!

  • What are my options for funding my education?

    Do this first: fill out and file your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Even if you don’t want federal aid, this document is used by many scholarship and grant programs to evaluate aid packages. 

    Look for scholarships and grants first because usually they don’t have to be paid back. The ICC Foundation sponsors some scholarships, and grants may be available from Illinois or federal programs. Other organizations also offer scholarships, and we can help you research those opportunities. 

    Federally guaranteed student loans can be a smart way to fund college. Think about your transfer plans and what your career looks like. Some sources recommend that you cap your borrowing at the level of what you (realistically!) can expect to earn at your first job after college. So, research careers and pay, too.  

    Of course, savings, jobs, and work-study are key parts of your budget. Your employer may offer tuition reimbursement. Find the tools to make a complete plan for paying for school. 

  • I don’t have the required GPA to enter the program. Can I still start?

    We have many options for you to start school, even when your GPA does not meet the minimum requirements. Connect with our Admissions Office to hear about options to help your GPA and get you moving toward the life and work you want.
