Out-of-State Students

Information for prospective Distance Delivery students residing outside of Illinois:
Illinois Eastern Community Colleges endeavors to offer all of its courses and programs to as wide an audience as possible and participates in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) to enhance the quality and expand access to IECC’s educational offerings. Institutions that have been approved to participate in SARA must be appropriately accredited and meet academic and financial requirements designed to protect and benefit students. 

Check the link NC-SARA for a map of participating SARA states and the list of participating institutions.

Important! If you are considering an academic program that leads to a professional license in your state, it is highly recommended that you first seek guidance from the appropriate licensing agency in your home state BEFORE beginning the academic program located outside your state.
