MCC to host campus visit March 26


With students entering the final months of the school year, this is the perfect time for both seniors, and juniors, to start exploring their options for the future. To help students explore college and career training options, Muscatine Community College (one of the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges) is inviting students to its Friday, March 26 Campus Visit beginning at 9 a.m., 152 Colorado St., Muscatine.

The event is open to anyone who is thinking about starting their college or technical education. To ensure everyone’s safety and offer the best experience possible, on-campus visits will be limited in size and advance registration is required. Our staff and all visitors are expected to follow health and safety guidelines, including mask wearing and social distancing.

The college will have representatives on hand to answer any and all questions about college programs, financial aid, applying for admission and more. Eastern Iowa Community Colleges is THE Community’s College with a wide variety of options ranging from a college transfer program for students interested in completing a Bachelor’s Degree or beyond, to 32 career programs for those wanting to enter directly into the job market.

The colleges’ technical programs range from advanced manufacturing and IT to healthcare and business, with everything else in between. Many of these programs have been designated high-demand by the state of Iowa, which means students may even have the opportunity to get their tuition paid through Iowa’s Last Dollar Scholarship Program.

College transfer students are guaranteed their credits will transfer once they finish here thanks to formal agreements the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, University of Northern Iowa, St. Ambrose University, Western Illinois University and others who have signed with EICC. The college also offers 15 different Transfer Major Associate Degrees. 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.
