Cooperative Agreement Programs at Other Community Colleges
Cooperative Agreement Form (PDF)
Agreements allow residents of the IVCC district to attend the community
colleges listed below as an in-district student to pursue a career or
occupational program NOT OFFERED by IVCC. The college has worked out
cooperative agreements with 27 other community colleges. These agreements allow
a student from IVCC's district to attend one of these colleges to complete the
desired program and to only pay that college's in-district tuition rate.
cooperative agreement form must be completed by IVCC students who
wish to attend another Illinois Public Community college to complete a career
or occupational program not offered by IVCC. For some of these colleges, the
cooperative agreement can be used by the student if he or she only wants or
needs to take one course not offered by IVCC in that particular semester. The
form must be completed and turned in to the Office of Academic Affairs for approval at
least 30 days prior to the start of class. The form is signed
by the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and sent to
the college to be attended. An approved cooperative agreement form is good or one academic year. The cooperating college will issue the degree or
certificate for successful completion of the program of study.

the rare instance where IVCC does not have a cooperative agreement for a
desired program, the student can request a chargeback by filling out a
chargeback form and completing the instructions as listed here. In this
case, the IVCC Board of Trustees will make the decision as to whether the
College will pay the out-of-district tuition for the student to the attended
community college. Requests for chargeback consideration must be submitted at
least 60 days prior to the start of classes. Illinois Valley Community College
will not pay chargeback for any programs that can be taken by a student under a
cooperative agreement. IVCC promotes cooperative agreements with other colleges
because of the large tax savings to residents in District 513. To request
to be considered for a chargeback for a career and technical (occupational)
credit program at another Illinois community college, please submit the
1. A letter requesting a chargeback stating the Illinois community college the
students wishes to attend and the title of the 2 year degree or certificate
2. A completed Chargeback Form.

note that by Board Policy, Chargeback Requests must be approved by the IVCC
Board of Trustees. You will be notified in writing of the Board’s decision on
the request within 5 business days after the scheduled Board meeting.
