You may be closer to that degree than you first thought! Learning experiences achieved prior to enrolling at IECC will be considered for academic credit based on established guidelines.
Credit Accepted from Other Post-secondary Institutions
The acceptance of credit earned at post-secondary institutions outside Illinois Eastern Community Colleges is determined by an evaluative process administered by the Dean of Instruction or designee. Official transcripts of students transferring credit to IECC toward a degree or certificate can be evaluated if the credit was earned at institutions accredited by The Higher Learning Commission or similar regional accrediting agency. If the transcript indicates a cumulative grade point average of less than C, only credits will be considered for those courses which have a grade of C or better. IECC's Policy on Transfer Credit (500.9) outlines the criteria used to make transfer decisions.
Credit Accepted for Prior Learning
The attainment of knowledge comes in many forms. It might be from work experience, an industry recognized training or credential, volunteer work, standardized testing, or your military background. At IECC we'll help you fast track your educational goals by evaluating your credit for prior learning. Click here for more information.
Students transferring to IECC must earn at least sixteen (16) semester hours at IECC to meet graduation requirements for a degree; for a certificate, sixteen (16) hours of college-level credit or 50% of the hours required, whichever is less. (See also Graduation Requirements.)
