CCC Maquoketa Center There is no need to travel to pursue your education; you can take classes right in Maquoketa at Clinton Community College’s (CCC) Maquoketa Center. CCC invites interested students to stop in for an Open House on Wednesday, June 23 over the lunch hour from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. or in the evening from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. The Maquoketa Center and its Advanced Manufacturing Center are located at 501 W. Washington St., right next to Maquoketa High School.

Instructors and staff will be on hand to provide tours of the building and answer all of your questions about our many great programs and classes. The center offers college classes for those straight out of high school as well as older adults who have been away from the classroom for a few years.

New this fall, students can take the first semester of EICC’s brand new hands-on Criminal Justice program. The college created the program in response to the growing need for local law enforcement professionals. It is designed to prepare students directly for the workforce in the areas of law enforcement, corrections and security. Other programs include Welding/Manufacturing, Business, Administrative Office Professional and General Education courses.

You can earn a full Associate’s Degree at our convenient location and enter the work force right away or transfer your credits to a four-year college or university. We offer 16-week and fast track eight-week classes during the day, in the evenings and online – making it easy for you to work around your schedule. Our tuition rate is also one of the most competitive in Iowa.

In addition, the center offers a wide selection of continuing education classes. These classes are short-term, often a single day or night, affordable, and ideal for people interested in pursuing a particular interest or exploring a new hobby.

The $1.5 million, 11,000-square-foot main building houses two state-of-the-art computer labs, a large meeting room, four classrooms and additional learning space. The manufacturing center includes 3,300 square feet of lab space, housing four horizontal mills, four vertical mills, eight Haas CNC simulators, a robotic plasma cutter and two robotic welders. Both facilities are the result of a partnership between Eastern Iowa Community Colleges and the Maquoketa School District.

The college and school district also work together to provide college level classes for current high school students. Students earn college credit they then transfer to their college of choice once they graduate from high school.
