Ah, summer. A time to kick back, sleep in, close the books . . .
or NOT! Summer is a great time to learn with Eastern Iowa Community Colleges.
Summer Classes for College Credit
With the spring semester moving right along, a lot of college students are focused on mid-terms, finals, and leaving all that studying behind when summer gets here. But there are big advantages to registering for summer courses.
The ability to catch up or move ahead in your college plans
If you’re currently behind in your program of study, taking summer courses is a great way to catch up. EICC offers a number of high-demand classes during the summer – the same classes you may have had to forego during the fall or spring semester because they were full. Summer courses are a great idea even if you are on schedule to graduate. If you would like to work ahead or lighten your standard semester load, taking one or more summer college classes can help you do so.
Smaller class sizes
With a smaller class size, your professor can give you more personal attention. This can be quite beneficial, especially if you initially find it difficult to adjust to the accelerated pace of a summer session course and require help. The more intimate learning environment may just help you excel, especially in more challenging classes.
During the summer term, you will likely be limited in the number of credits you can take. With a reduced course load, you will be able to focus more on the class or classes you’re enrolled in. This can be especially useful if you hope to ace a more challenging course, like organic chemistry or calculus.

Summer Camps 2017
The learning isn’t all about working towards a degree. For area kids, EICC will be focused on fun, exploration, discovery, and creativity all summer long. Designed for younger students (up through age 17), these camps provide opportunities for creation and recreation with a variety of topics.
Eastern Iowa Community Colleges – Clinton, Muscatine and Scott Community Colleges – are launching our fourth year of summer camps.
We have half-day and full-day camps for a range of ages from 3 to 17 that will be hosted in locations across our four-county district.
Here’s just a taste of what’s coming up: Outdoor wilderness, video game development, robotics, college and career exploration, designing for Minecraft, building computer applications, exploring CSI, culinary camp, drone camp and even zombie camp!
EICC Summer camps connect kids to new experiences, new skills and new friends. And they help them learn practical skills they can continue to use long after summer is gone.
