Eastern Iowa Community Colleges are following the guidance of public health officials. Adult Basic Education, High School Equivalency, and English Language Acquisition testing services have been suspended through May 25.  Instruction will continue to be delivered remotely through the end of the program year.

Students enrolled prior to the closure should check their email for information on how to access the instruction. If you have additional class-specific questions, please email your instructor or reach out to the email address below (be sure to include your class location and instructor’s name, if possible). 

To access your classes, you will need a computer with a microphone and an internet connection. A video camera is helpful, but is not required. You may also use a handheld device such as a smart phone or tablet. If you do not have access to this equipment or to internet services, we will arrange for you to resume your studies when we return to campus. We promise you will not be left behind.

New student enrollment will resume on May 26.  In the meantime, you may use the REGISTER NOW button below to begin the registration process.

If you have questions, please contact sjschneider@eicc.edu.

We remain committed to the health, safety and well-being of our entire community.

English Language Acquisition (ELA) classes are offered in Clinton, Muscatine, Davenport, Bettendorf, Columbus Junction, and West Liberty.
English Language Learners can complete the online registration (Register Now link at the top of this page) individually or at a group orientation.

ELA classes expand English communication skills for students who are not native English speakers. Classroom, small group and computer instruction are designed to promote reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Students learn about personal communication, conducting business, work-related communication, and civic engagement.

All EICC campuses offer non-credit ELA classes. The SCC campus also offers a credit option.
