Office of International Education

Illinois Valley Community College recognizes the importance of providing opportunities for students to develop an understanding of the interdependence of people and nations in today's world. The college therefore provides students with a variety of courses that contribute to an understanding of the relationships between other nations' cultural, economic, and political systems and our own. The college also participates in international study programs where students reside and study in another country for an extended period. The college also invites students from other countries to seek admission to our college.
