It’s been nearly a month since the FAFSA (Federal Application for Student Aid) became available and now that students are beginning to think about how they’ll pay for college, it’s time to think about where they want to go.
To help students decide, Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) is hosting a Virtual Visit Monday, Nov. 9 beginning at 9 a.m. online via Zoom. Visits include EICC’s Clinton, Muscatine and Scott Community Colleges as well as its downtown Davenport Urban Campus and Blong Technology Center.
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.
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 easily transfer upon graduation. New this year, 15 different Transfer Major Associate Degrees will also be available. The state’s community colleges and public universities joined forces to create these majors, enabling students to start taking classes required for their major while at EICC.
EICC’s 30-plus 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, and many have been designated high-demand by the state of Iowa.
