Illinois Central College Reviews
Illinois Central College was a great place to start my college education. The prices are unbeatable compared to regular university classes and when you're trying to get gen-eds out of the way as debt free as possible, it is in my opinion the best central IL option. The class sizes are much smaller than university and therefore you get to know your teachers more and can have easier access to one on one help. Despite being a community college I have made countless friends here. It is a very diverse campus and has many organizations/clubs and programs of study available. Most importantly, education is at the forefront of ICC'S priorities and they have a lot of transfer arrangements with local Universities. I would highly recommend ICC.
My experience was very good. I was granted a Peoria Promise scholarship and saved a ton of money and still got a great education! The professors are very accessible, the campus provides many resources, and the education was just overall great.
Illinois Central College should be at the top of your list for a community college that offers solid academic courses for an unbeatable price. It is much cheaper than many other colleges. In my experience, there are some instructors which are not as preferable as others, but that is the case with most colleges. I am currently enrolled in their program for mechanical engineering (two years at ICC taking the gen-ed courses and a few engineer-specific courses before transferring.) They are well known for their nursing program, Cat diesel program, GM automotive program, engineering programs, and many others. In conclusion, for the price, it is harder to find a better two-year university.
