Columbus Day Visit October 14



Admissions officers sitting on couchColumbus set sail on a voyage of discovery, exploring for new wealth more than 600 years ago. There’s a more practical way of doing that today, earning a college education.

Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) can chart the course, whether it’s the first two years of a four-year education, or one of 32 career technology programs. Interested students can learn more at the colleges’ October 14 Columbus Day Campus Visits.

The visits will be held at each of the EICC colleges, Clinton, Muscatine, and Scott, including the Blong Technology Center and SCC Urban Campus. The sessions begin at 9 a.m. and at each campus.

The visits provide students the opportunity to learn everything they want and need to know about starting college including programs of study, financial aid possibilities, admissions and more. Students are encouraged to bring all of their questions with them. Parents are welcome too.

EICC makes a quality education possible for everyone and has become the first choice for students planning their future. Tuition continues to be one of the most competitive in the state of Iowa, thousands of dollars less than the four-year colleges and technical institutes. Financial aid is also available. 

The colleges maintain formal transfer agreements with the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, Western Illinois University, St. Ambrose University and others. These agreements mean the credits that college transfer students earn here easily transfer upon graduation.

EICC’s career technology programs are designed to lead the student directly into the job market. The programs range from a full two-year degree to just a semester in length. With so many to choose from, there’s something to meet everyone’s skills and interests.
