Taking Online Classes
We learned long ago our classrooms do not need walls for our students to succeed. They need place and time, opportunity and support, and a high-quality engaging education. We provide all of that and more. Earn a degree on your terms at EICC.
Higher education also needs to be accessible to all, so our online tuition rate is more than competitive, it is lower than most Iowa public and private universities.
Discipline + Motivation = Online Success
Great at solving problems? Organized and motivated? Committed and disciplined? If this describes you, online courses are a great option.
Online Class Tips
- The 2:1 rule is a good time management baseline for online students. For every one
credit hour you are taking, you will invest at least two hours into studying and assignments.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FREE ONLINE AND IN-PERSON TUTORING SERVICES.
- Our classes are not self-paced. Live Online classes have scheduled class times, while Online Anytime classes do not have set lecture times.
- Check your course schedule and assignment due dates, as online classes do not always follow the on-campus schedule.
- Your academic advisor will guide you on your path to your degree.
- If you need to request ADA accommodations contact a Disability Service Provider (DSP).
