Applicants for admission to ICC are accepted without regard to race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity and its expression, disability, or veteran status. All applicants need to be at least 18 years old; if under 18 years of age, a student would need to
have a parent or guardian assist him/her in the admission process.
ICC offers long-term (three 15-week semesters during a calendar year) and short-term programs. Applications for admission are accepted throughout the year. To be considered for admission, the following is required:
A student with a foreign High School Diploma is required to provide a copy of the foreign High School Diploma translated into English. Both the copy and the translation must be notarized by a public notary.
A student who obtained a foreign High School Diploma but is unable to produce it, needs to complete the Sworn Statement of Student’s Graduation from a Foreign High School Form (BPSS Form – 115).
To be placed in vocational classes, a student with foreign High School Diploma, who does not have the U.S. High School/equivalency diploma or a college degree, is required to demonstrate the evidence of the English–language skills proficiency by passing the Combined English Language Skills Assessment (CELSA) at the intermediate level (raw score of at least 30; scaled score: Form 1 – 92, Form 2 – 95). A student applying for admission to the ESL program is required to pass the CELSA test with the raw score of at least 5.
All applicants must fill out an Enrollment Agreement, which is available at the Admissions Office.
ICC takes into consideration extenuating circumstances and may allow the student, who needs to interrupt his/her education, to reinstate his/her student’s status.
During the re-admission process, the student is required to contact the Office of the Registrar, where a determination of the student’s reinstatement will be made.
Following the BPSS Transfer of Instructional Hours Policy, ICC may allow a student to transfer instructional hours from course or curricula taken at another post-secondary school which is licensed, registered, or accredited by the state or federal authorities, if the following guidelines are followed:
The tuition and fees are pro-rated so that the student only pays a proportional cost in relationship to the number of instructional hours s/he will receive.
The applicant must submit a certificate of completion and a course outline along with the application for admission. Transfer students who will receive credit for transferring instructional hours, will have their tuition adjusted accordingly. If the student elects to attend the course for which the credit is given, the student will be responsible for the tuition during this time.
At ICC, we follow the established Transfer of Instructional Hours Policy and carefully review students’ academic credentials earned at other educational institutions. The assessment of prior learning and ability to transfer instructional hours allows our students to speed up the educational process by completing fewer instructional hours or by having certain courses waived.
When applying to ICC, please inform the Office of the Registrar about previously acquired training and education.
