Summer classes enrolling at EICC

Both college students home for the summer and high school graduates preparing to begin college in the fall will 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.

Enrollment for summer classes is currently underway. The college offers both four- and eight-week sessions beginning June 2 and a second four-week session beginning June 30. In addition, there is a full schedule of online classes available as well.

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 little lighter next year or make up for something they missed this past year.

Because EICC maintains formal transfer agreements with the state universities and area private colleges, 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.

Making the transfer process even easier, the state universities and community colleges cooperate on a Transfer in Iowa website, www.transferiniowa.org. The website provides the information university students need to see how classes transfer between the colleges.

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 ore two less classes to take when they begin classes in the fall can make the transition to college go that much more smoothly.
