How to Pay for College: Understanding the Financial Aid Process
Perfect for seniors and parents

Wednesday, September 29 at 5:30 pm – Tune in on the ICAN Facebook page or REGISTER

In this collaborative webinar we will discuss what information is needed to file the FAFSA and what options are available for students under DACA status or as an undocumented student.

Filing the FAFSA is not as challenging as it once was. Sometimes the hardest part of getting the form completed is having all the documents and information gathered. Our student success advisor will provide visuals of all the documents and will go over in detail all the information you will need in order to complete the FAFSA successfully.

Being under DACA status or being an undocumented youth has many challenges, one of them being accessing financial aid to pay for college. We will discuss what options and resources are available for students in this situation.

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.
