Exciting New Programs and Flat Tuition at Clinton, Muscatine and Scott Community Colleges

Criminal Justice – You may have heard, we formally announced our new Criminal Justice AAS program this week. The program has the support of law enforcement departments throughout our area. It’s designed specifically for students interested in beginning a career in law enforcement, security or a related area, immediately after graduation.

The first year of the program is available at all three of our main campuses as well as the college’s Maquoketa Center. The second year is at our Scott Community College Urban Campus in downtown Davenport. This AAS program is in addition to our long-standing Criminal Justice AA Degree for transfer into a four-year Bachelor’s Degree. eicc.edu/criminaljustice

Cybersecurity – We don’t have to look much further than the recent cyberattack on the East Coast energy sector to understand the growing importance of trained cybersecurity professionals. EICC has been building a strong presence in the field, even establishing a Cyber Center of related information. eicc.edu/cybersecurity

Graphic Arts – Previously based at our Clinton Community College, the Graphic Arts degree will now be offered entirely online meaning students will be able to take it from anywhere, scheduling time around work or family commitments. eicc.edu/graphicarts  FYI, Graphic Arts is one of two dozen Iowa Last Dollar Scholarship programs so students from Iowa don’t have to pay tuition. eicc.edu/lastdollar

Flat-Tuition Rate – Speaking of tuition, EICC has introduced a new flat-tuition rate. Students enrolled in 12 credit hours on campus, can take up to six additional hours either on campus or live online with no additional tuition cost. They take up to 18 hours for the price of 12. eicc.edu/flattuition

College Transfer Majors – The state transfer majors program is growing with majors continuously being added. This is a great program, started as a cooperative effort between Iowa’s state universities and community colleges, that has since expanded to include several private colleges. You can see the current majors list at eicc.edu/transfermajors but be sure to check back because the list is growing.

Camp Wyoming

Camp Wyoming (located in Jones County, Iowa) is in need of staff and volunteers this summer.

 

Summer staff: Current seniors in high school can work with us for half the summer (staff training plus June 13-July 2 or July 11-August 1) as a Program/Kitchen Assistant. This is the perfect way to experience all of the behind the scenes at camp like setting up special programs, helping in the kitchen, leading activities, and filling in as a counselor when needed. This role allows students to be part of the camp community for a summer before taking on the full responsibilities of a counselor.

 

Female volunteers only: Our TTT (pronounced Tri-T) summer camp program serves close to 100 4th grade girls a week from under-privileged homes throughout Iowa. Volunteer counselors assist our camp staff and help lead the girls in activities like swimming, arts and crafts, kayaking, and games, as well as supervise them in their cabins at night. TTT Volunteers are needed the week of June 13-18. Volunteers must be current juniors in high school or older to apply.

 

Male and female volunteers: Our traditional summer camp programs serve children and youth between the ages of 5 and 17. These programs are religious in nature, so volunteers must be comfortable working and participating in a Christian program. Volunteer counselors assist our camp staff in caring for campers and leading activities like swimming, kayaking, archery, and Bible study, as well as caring for the campers at night. Volunteers are needed during the weeks of June 20-25, June 27-July 2, July 11-16, July 18-23, or July 25-30. Volunteers must be current juniors in high school or older to apply.

 

If you are interested in working or volunteering with us, email Stacie Hoppman at stacie@campwyoming.net or apply online at campwyoming.net.
