Free Classes for Community College Month



April is Community College MonthWhile we pride ourselves on being THE Community’s College year round, during the month of April, we get to shout it from the rooftops!

That’s because April is community college month, and it’s the perfect time of year to celebrate all Eastern Iowa Community Colleges has to offer. We can think of no better way to do that than inviting you to attend a class free of charge. It’s just our way of thanking the community for your support, and to introduce you to the many great Continuing Education classes we have available.

“Community College Month is a great time to connect with EICC,” said Paula Arends, Director of Workforce Innovation. “Throughout the entire month of April, we will offer an opportunity for our community to learn, be entertained, and possibly plant a seed for future career or life goals. 

Classes will be offered online at Clinton, Muscatine and Scott Community Colleges, as well as at Scott’s Urban Campus. They will be Live Online courses, meaning you get to interact with your instructor and classmates face-to-face over Zoom.

“Due to COVID-19, EICC is taking precautions to keep our staff, students, and communities healthy.  This year’s Community College Month offerings are all being offered virtually.  All you need is a computer, internet access, and an email, and you can take advantage of as many sessions as you wish!” Arends said.

A wide range of classes are scheduled, with a number of times available. Each session will run for an hour. Whether you’re interested in improving a skill or just want to explore something new, we have a class sure to spark your interest and curiosity! Did we mention they’re all free?
