IECC participates in a state-wide cooperative agreement to maximize Career and Technical Education opportunities for Illinois students. Under the terms of the Comprehensive Agreement Regarding the Expansion of Educational Resources (CAREER) agreement, students may enroll in an eligible CTE certificate or degree program at a community college outside of their home district and pay the in-district tuition rate. The agreement is authorized by the student’s home district who will ensure the desired curriculum is not available in-district.
Out-of-District Students: Students residing outside IECC District 529 who want to enroll in an Associate in Applied Science Degree or a certificate not available from their own community college should contact their local college at least 30 days prior to the semester for which they’d like to enroll.
In-District Students: Students residing inside IECC District 529 who want to enroll in an Associate in Applied Science Degree or certificate not offered at IECC should contact their advisor to begin the process.
