Tuition-Free Summer Classes Available

Mar 07, 2023

Illinois Eastern Community Colleges (IECC) is proud to announce a “pay no-tuition” for students who enroll in specific summer courses. This applies to all IECC schools, including Wabash Valley College, Lincoln Trail College, Frontier Community College, and Olney Central College.

This initiative is part of IECC's commitment to providing affordable and accessible education to all students. By waiving tuition fees for summer courses, we aim to help students save money and make education more accessible. While tuition fees will be waived for these courses, it's important to note that individuals are still required to pay fees. This includes, but is not limited to, registration, lab, and technology fees.

Each of our four campuses have a unique set of hybrid and face-to-face courses eligible for the no-tuition waiver.

At Olney Central College, these include:

Elementary Spanish II (SPN 1121) — This class can help you satisfy part of your foreign language requirement or elective. It is also a good class for education majors. Meets Wednesdays 9-11:50 a.m.

Environmental Biology (LSC 1105) — This course can help you satisfy a life science requirement. Online class.

Women in Literature (LIT 2135) — This class will satisfy a humanities requirement. Online class.

College Algebra (MTH 1102) — This course is required for some business majors. Meets Monday-Thursday from 9-10:50 a.m.

Music Appreciation (MUS 1101) — This course will satisfy a fine arts requirement. Online class.

For more information or to register for these courses, call Olney Central College at 618-395-7777. 

In addition to those campus specific courses, IECC has a wide variety of online courses available for all students and campuses. These diverse course offerings cater to different interests and career paths but is a great opportunity for students to explore new subjects.

Students taking advantage of this waiver will practice new disciplines, gain new skills, and make the most out of their summer break.

We encourage all eligible students to take advantage of this opportunity and enroll in our summer courses today. For more information on about course offerings visit our website, social media pages, or contact your local IECC school.

IECC remains committed to providing quality education and support to all students, and we look forward to seeing you this summer!
