International Students

I’m SO excited you're interested in ICC! My name is Rebekah Peitz and I am the International Admissions recruiter here at Independence Community College. I was born and raised right here in Kansas!  I graduated from Washburn University in 2012 where I received a degree in Communications.  While in college I also studied abroad and know what a BIG process it can be! I started working at ICC in the Fall of 2014 and have been able to discover my passion is supporting students through the college process and helping them make ICC their home.

ICC provides a home away from home experience with our small campus and one on one attention from your instructors.  I have been working with International students for the past 3 years and will be able to answer any questions that you may have!   I will be your “go-to” person for ANY questions you have about ICC before and after you arrive on campus! My goal is to make YOUR transition to the United States as smooth as possible. 

Many international students feel a little overwhelmed when they arrive in the United States. Independence Community College is a small campus, because we are smaller we offer one-on-one relationships with our students. Our student to teacher ratio is smaller than universities and we have an international student advisor that works specifically with our international student population.
