Academic Program Options What educational options are available at IVCC? Okay, now that you know how to get started here at IVCC, what about academic program options? At IVCC, you can choose from five different degrees and a variety of certificate programs. If you want to transfer to a four-year college or university, you will pursue either an Associate in Arts (A. A.) degree, an Associate in Science (A. S.) degree, or an Associate in Engineering Science (A. E. S.) degree. These three degrees are called transfer degrees. If you want to learn a professional skill that will result in immediate employment after IVCC, you will pursue either an Associate of Applied Science (A. A. S.) degree or a certificate program. Another degree option available to you is the Associate in General Studies (A. G. S.) degree. This degree is individualized to meet the needs and interests of the student. It allows for the combination of both transfer and career courses. While not intended to be a transfer degree, the A. G. S. degree recognizes completion of two years of college. back | home | next

Frequently Asked Questions Q: I took a class in high school and received college credit for it. What do I do about that? A: IVCC courses are transferable to other colleges and universities, but subject to the course acceptance policies of the transfer college. You are encouraged to meet with an IVCC Counselor to explore transfer issues, particularly to the University of Illinois and to private or out-of-state colleges. Our courses that are offered at your high school meet the IVCC General Education requirements, as well as those requirements established by the statewide Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI). Q: Where can I go for help to improve my test taking, writing and study skills? A: Visit our Writing Center located in CRC-D or call 815-224-0335 for free service to those who need assistance with the writing process.Assistant to improve academic skills is available through the Reading, Writing and Study Skills Lab, located in B-201.

Based on the data, emphasis will continue in areas of technique and design. The high scores in the presentation area are credited to the formal critiques and informal presentations conducted in each design course. The rubric is shared with the students throughout the semester, making each student aware of the assessment areas and criteria. Every required deliverable is compared against the rubric by the student to determine the scoring possibilities. Students are given immediate feedback by all evaluators at the reception. A discussion by students and faculty also takes place in a classroom critique following the reception.
