First-Year Counseling & Registration

Please allow up to 2 hours to complete your First Year Counseling and Registration (FCR) session.

  1. Apply online or call 815-224-0439. 

  2. Determine if you need placement testing:
    Visit the Assessment Center’s Placement Options

    IVCC highly recommends that ALL students take the math placement test as more options for coursework are available. (Exceptions are students who have completed AP Calculus AB or BC w/ 3 or higher, students who have completed a Transitional Math course with a C or higher or dual credit MTH-1003 College Algebra with a C or higher). Placement tests are required for students wishing to enroll in calculus.

  3. Placement tests, high school transcript, and college transcript(s), standardized test scores and/or evidence of grades/scores can be emailed to counseling@ivcc.edu. Include the student name and date of birth in the subject line.

             COMPLETE THE STEPS ABOVE BEFORE SCHEDULING YOUR FCR APPOINTMENT!
