Outreach & Assistance Programs

We have several programs to help high school students, first-year students or those facing difficult or special circumstances.  

Rural Outreach Education

The Rural Outreach Education Program focuses its efforts upon the improvement of the education of the students of rural and small schools in Kansas, NE Oklahoma, and the regional area served by Independence Community College. This project is made possible by funding of the Department of Education through the Rural Postsecondary Economic & Development Grant awarded to ICC in 2021.

Supplemental Instruction

The SI Program focuses on historically challenging courses, specifically those with a significant occurrence of D, F, and Withdraw grades. It's important to note that SI does not single out struggling students; instead, it warmly welcomes all students enrolled in these courses to participate in SI Sessions. Many of these courses are essential requirements for a wide range of students or serve as pivotal "gatekeeper" or prerequisite courses. The program operates on a voluntary basis, allowing students the flexibility to choose when they wish to attend SI Sessions. Moreover, SI ensures that its employees receive comprehensive training, and it maintains ongoing supervision of SI Leaders throughout the semester to ensure the program's effectiveness.

The Upward Bound Program provides qualified participants with the tools, skills, access to resources, and motivators needed to complete high school and to enter and succeed in college. A six-week summer component is also created and offered to provide students with an actual academic, realistic collegiate, social, intellectual, and cultural experience geared towards preparing students for college life.

Military and VA Resources

The Center of Excellence for Veteran Student Success (CEVSS)’s mission is to support student veterans in achieving their academic, career, and personal goals.  Made possible by a Department of Education Fund for the Improvement of Secondary Education (FIPSE) grant, the evolving success center at INDYCC serves as a focal point for veteran students focusing on four key areas: 1) aiding veterans’ transition to campus life, 2) increasing retention, 3) completing a degree 4) and/or transferring to a four-year university.

ICC offers many classes concurrently through the high schools in our service area. Students taking these classes are generally high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors. These classes are taught at the individual high schools by an accredited high school a teacher who teaches the curriculum and course outcomes designated by ICC. Students enrolled in concurrent classes can expect to receive the same quality education as they would receive on the campus of ICC.

Dual Credit courses are regular college courses taken by a high school student, taught by a regular ICC instructor (rather than a high school instructor). These classes may be on any campus or online and are not special classes for high school students only.


Indy Connect

The Indy Connect program encompasses workforce and professional development, as well as community education courses. Independence Community College is committed to providing quality workforce and professional development to your business by providing industry standard training and/or custom training to meet your specific needs.
