Alternative Delivery

If you find it impossible to attend a traditional class because of distance or scheduling conflicts, one of our alternative delivery options may be for you. Alternative delivery coursework is done on an individual basis, with an instructor available for guidance and consultation. NOTE: All alternative delivery courses are approved for college credit. See your advisor concerning degree requirements.


Online Classes


EICC offers a variety of programs and online courses in cooperation with the Iowa Community College Online Consortium (ICCOC). Classes are available wherever you have access to a computer and the internet, and at the convenience of being able to fit them around busy work or family schedules. Many of EICC’s programs have courses that can be taken online, and several of EICC’s Career and Technical Education programs are completely online. To register for an online class, a student must first apply for admission at EICC. The schedule of online courses is on the EICC website. An academic advisor can answer any questions about the online courses being offered and enrollment, as well as what courses may be taken to complete a degree or program.
