Enrolling in Classes

Course Schedules are online at MyICC.

The class schedule lists day, time, and location of classes, and dates and times for registration. The Summer/Fall class schedule is generally available the preceding March, and the Spring class schedule is available the preceding October.

Before enrolling for classes, STUDENTS are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor to plan a specific course schedule meeting Illinois Central College requirements, personal needs, and, if appropriate, four-year institution transfer requirements. The required approval will be obtained from the advisor at this time. PART-TIME STUDENTS are especially encouraged to meet with an academic advisor to receive full benefit of their continuing education. ALL OUTSTANDING FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS MUST BE PAID BEFORE ENROLLING.  

Student Status

Full-Time Student

Students enrolled in 12 or more credit hours are classified as full-time. These students are entitled to and encouraged to use all the academic support systems and College facilities available. Students enrolled in six or more credit hours during the summer session are classified as full-time for academic purposes but part-time for financial aid purposes.

Part-Time Student

Students enrolled for 11 or fewer credit hours are classified as part-time. These students are entitled to and encouraged to use all the academic support systems and College facilities available to full-time students. Students enrolled for five or fewer credit hours during a summer session are classified as part-time.

Maximum Load

The recommended maximum load for a student during an academic semester is 16 credit hours, unless the program of study requires a number of hours in excess of 16. The recommended maximum load for summer is 9 credit hours. Prior to enrolling for 18 credit hours or more during a semester (or for more than nine credit hours during the regular summer session) permission MUST be obtained from the dean in the student’s curriculum area. Students with less than a “B” (3.0) grade average are discouraged from attempting 18 credit hours or more. Students on academic caution, academic pre-suspension, or re-admitted suspended students, and students in certain programs may be limited to a lesser number of hours.  

Withdrawal from Classes

When necessary to withdraw from a class or classes, you may do so at any time until 75% of the class has elapsed.

Withdrawing from class(es) should be completed online via your MyICC account. If you experience problems when trying to withdraw online, you must contact the ICC Help Desk within 24 hours of your attempt so that we may research the problem. Call the ICC Help Desk at (309) 694-5457 or email for assistance. If you do not make this contact, your situation will be handled in accordance with the current ICC enrollment policies.

Students may withdraw from a class until the withdrawal date listed on their class schedule. All students are financially responsible for tuition and fees for classes that they enroll into during a semester.  However, if the withdrawal occurs on or before the refund date listed on the class schedule, the student may be entitled to a refund of tuition.

Students who are given a failing grade on an assignment for Academic Misconduct will not be allowed to withdraw from that course without instructor permission. Students who are given a failing grade in the course for Academic Misconduct will not be allowed to withdraw from the course. Illinois Central College reserves the right to reinstate any individuals who are withdrawn in these situations.

Withdrawal for Non-Activity

Students who are identified as a no longer participating in class by their instructor will be withdrawn from the class at midterm. Students recorded for non-activity will be notified by email that they have been administratively withdrawn from the class without refund of tuition. Instructors have individual and often varying policies regarding non-activity withdrawals. Do not assume you will be withdrawn if you never attend or stop participating in a class.

If space is available, and if approval from department and instructor are obtained, then students may re-enroll in a class from which they have been withdrawn.

Not participating or attending without an official withdrawal constitutes a failing or unsatisfactory grade.

Students are financially responsible for tuition and fees for all classes not officially dropped by the appropriate refund date.

Late Withdrawals

Withdrawals after the end date listed in the class schedule will be considered late. For more information on the process see “Request for Late Withdrawal Grades,” in the Student Rights and Responsibilities Student Handbook.
