College students home for the summer and high school graduates preparing to begin
college in the fall take advantage of Eastern Iowa Community Colleges’ (EICC) summer classes to get a jump on their education.
More than 3,000 students attend classes each summer at EICC’s Clinton, Muscatine and Scott Community Colleges.
The college offers both four- and eight-week sessions beginning May 30 and a second four-week session beginning June 26. In addition, there is a full schedule of online classes available.
A very large number of the colleges’ summer students are currently enrolled at other colleges, such as Iowa’s three state universities, and are just picking up a class or two this summer. They know that summer classes give them a chance to make their study load a little lighter next year or make up for something they missed this past year.
Because the state universities and many private colleges maintain formal transfer agreements with EICC, it’s easy for students to transfer the credits they earn in such classes as Calculus, Physics, Public Speaking, Macro & Micro-Economics, World Issues and Foreign Language, back to their parent institution.
New students planning to enroll for the first time at Clinton, Muscatine or Scott Community College also find it helpful to take a summer class. Having one less class to take when they begin classes in the fall can make the transition to college go that much more smoothly.
As always, EICC has one of the most competitive tuitions in the state of Iowa.
