Transfer Programs available: AA, AS, and ASA Degrees
IECC offers a two-year program, known as the Transfer Program, in which you can pursue either an Associate in Arts, an Associate in Science, or an Associate in Science and Arts Degree. These degrees offer credits which transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
The comprehensive transfer curriculum includes introductory courses that all college students must take, regardless of where they decide to begin their education. These courses are designed to give you a broad educational background, and to give you a foundation on which to build your education. The program at Illinois Eastern Community Colleges is essentially the same as the first two years at any four-year college or university in the United States.
Students who choose to begin work on their college degree at IECC quickly find a unique caring atmosphere at all four campuses. The average class size is about 20 students. The small class sizes allow instructors to get to know their students through direct exchange and classroom discussion.
NOTE (per Academics Requirement Policy, 500.20): Students who are participating in Illinois Eastern Community Colleges International Student Program may not enroll in on-line courses without permission from the Program Director of International Students, in recognition of the significant learning experience which occurs through cultural immersion in a classroom environment.
