March 24 Student Communication


Welcome to Online Learning. All face-to-face classes will start again tomorrow as online classes.

As a college, we know you have a lot on your mind and a lot on your plate, so Eastern Iowa Community Colleges - Clinton, Muscatine and Scott wants to make the transition to online learning as easy as possible for you.

Login into Canvas and check out your classes.

Your faculty have been busy adjusting your courses to online delivery. Today, updated course content and information has been posted to each class within Canvas. Your instructors are available to answer any questions about your class. You can post questions within the class in Canvas or send an email directly to your instructor.

If you are having trouble logging into Canvas, contact the college Help Desk at helpdesk@eicc.edu. If you need assistance within Canvas, you can reach out to canvashelp@eicc.edu.

Online Resource Center

We have updated and enhanced our online Student Resource Center. Access it here. The Student Resource Center contains great information on accessing your online classes, how to contact your instructor, tips on submitting assignments, and much more.

Tutoring and Library Resources

You have access to free online tutoring from SmartThinking. The tutoring is free for you as a student. In addition, the Student Success Centers will be offering remote tutoring. Details can be found here. Our libraries are also working to make a variety of online content available to you. Check out the latest library information here.

Submitting Assignments and Testing

Within Canvas, you will find directions on how to submit assignments. Some assignments may be modified with the transition to online delivery. Your instructor will communicate how to complete assignments within Canvas. Our instructors will be adjusting testing requirements for some classes as well. If your class normally requires a proctored test, you will receive information on how to complete a proctored test remotely.

Student Services

We have created a web page to help you connect to our Student Development services. Go here to reach Advising, Financial Aid, Registration or other college offices. Our staff are working remotely to continue to provide you services and assist during this transition. Your advisor is available to meet with you by appointment by phone or Zoom.

THE Community’s College

During the next few weeks, we will be communicating information, resources, tools, and tips to help you finish the Spring 2020 semester off strong. Don’t let the idea of distance learning add to your stress: whether through Canvas, Zoom or even a phone call, the goal is for instructors, staff and students to stay connected and keep learning going. With constant communication and a little bit of flexibility, we will get through this. Together, we are THE Community’s College.

March 19 Student Communications


As COVID-19 continues to spread across our country and state, we are seeing a dramatic shift in the way we are conducting daily life in order to slow the spread of the virus. The situation is evolving quickly, and today, Eastern Iowa Community Colleges - Clinton, Muscatine and Scott are making the difficult decision to close our college campuses and to suspend previously announced services to students on campus.

Protecting the health, safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff and our community is our first priority.  All campuses will be closed at 2 pm today, March 19 through April 12. We continue to plan to return to normal operations on Monday, April 13. 

The college will continue to offer online classes and all face-to-face classes will transition to online delivery (CANVAS) starting on March 25 until April 12 as previously communicated.  We will send details regarding the online transition next week. Faculty will begin posting content starting on March 24.
