About ICC

Independence Community College was founded in 1925 as grades 13 and 14 of the Independence public school system, we have since evolved into a two-year educational institution accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

In 1967, we legally separated from the school district, and in 1969, construction of our 68-acre campus on the former Independence Country Club began. By September 1970, we were proud to open the doors to our new site, which now includes the Academic Building, Fine Arts Building, Student Union, Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Field House, Administration Building, William Inge Center for the Arts, fitness center, athletic practice fields, disc golf course, a 96-bed multi-structure living complex, and a 200-bed residence hall.

In 2010, we expanded our college by renovating a donated building and opening ICC West, located on the west side of Independence. This campus is home to our technical programs, including Allied Health, Cosmetology, and GED/ABE. We continued to expand in 2012 by completing additional renovations to accommodate our Veterinary Nursing Program, which includes state-of-the-art facilities such as animal wards, a classroom, lab, surgery, pharmacy, prep room, small animal treatment, food prep, grooming, and radiology.

Currently, we offer 28 programs of study for Associates of Arts and/or Science degrees, as well as a range of student support services, Upward Bound, men's and women's athletic programs, and a variety of campus organizations and activities. At Independence Community College, we are committed to providing our students with exceptional educational opportunities and a supportive community.
