ICC holds only one Commencement Ceremony in the spring. Students completing their program of study the previous Summer or Fall Semesters are encouraged to participate in the spring ceremony. Students who choose not to participate in the Commencement Ceremony may request a diploma cover by contacting Enrollment Services on the East Peoria Campus.

Participation in the Commencement Ceremony does not automatically assure a student of having earned a degree or certificate. Final grades and graduation certification are verified as soon as possible following the semester of completion of the student’s program of study. Diplomas will be mailed to the student approximately ten (10) weeks after all final grades are posted. Diplomas are mailed to the students’ address on your ICC records. Addresses can be updated through the “My Information” section of the MyICC mobile app or the “General Info” tab if logged into the full eServices account.
