They are currently accepting applications for the Fall 2014 semester. The IEAP curriculum has been at the college since 2010 but was previously limited to local immigrants.

New courses include American Culture I & II and a Language Laboratory course. Our main campus is just 72km outside downtown Chicago, giving students the opportunity to experience the exceptional cultural activity of the city. Joliet Junior College is also one of the few community colleges in Illinois with on-campus student housing. For more information, please contact Dayna Crabb at For more information, please visit:
