Welcome Home to EICC!

Eastern Iowa Community Colleges is happy to welcome new and returning students back to campus for the Fall 2020 semester. Our top priorities for the semester are the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and the communities we serve AND providing critical education and training needed by our students to survive and thrive in the current pandemic environment.

We have incorporated public health guidance, the best data available and lessons learned from our summer reopening to design a flexible, academically rich, supportive and safe experience for students.  You will find our campuses to be COVID-aware learning environments, our class schedule to be flexible, and our support services committed to your success.
