Winter Intersession

For the first time, Illinois Valley Community College is offering students the opportunity to pick up online college credit over holiday break. IVCC’s new “Winter Intersession” begins Dec. 21 and runs through Jan. 7.

“These courses provide an opportunity for our students to get ahead and for university students home for break to pick up a class at our low tuition rate,” said Vice President for Student Services Mark Grzybowski.

The 18-day session includes online courses in:

  • Introduction to Chemistry (CHM 1000) with Promise Yong
  • Wellness (HPE 1000) and First Aid (HPE 1004) with Tony Ruda
  • Introduction to Psychology (PSY 1000) with Jill Urban-Bollis
  • Marriage and Family (SOC 1002) with Rick Mangold
  • Intercultural Communications (SPH 1003) with Cory Tomasson

The deadline for registering for Winter Intersession courses has passed.

These are fully online classes.

Delivered via the internet with dates and deadlines, but no specific meeting times online or in-person.
