Lincoln Trail College
Lincoln Trail College is a two-year, coeducational, comprehensive, public community college offering a full spectrum of transfer, occupational, continuing education, and community service programs. Located in Robinson, Illinois, the scenic main campus brings together contemporary buildings and picturesque settings like Miller Lake. Lincoln Trail has been recognized twice as one of the top 120 community colleges in the nation for its completion rates and has been recognized as the number one among public two-year colleges for student success. Our students finish what they start and we provide the resources. In addition to offering affordable tuition costs to our in-district students, we offer special tuition discounts to students from 18 counties in southwestern Indiana. The District is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and approved by the Illinois State Board of Higher Education, State Board of Teacher Certification, United States Department of Justice for Training Foreign Students, State Approving Agency for Veterans’ Education, Illinois Department of Professional Regulation, National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission, National Radiologic Technology Board, and State Cosmetology Board. IECC’s partnership with the Illinois Virtual Campus offers students on-line classes that fit into their schedules and educational goals. Our alliance with Franklin University offers IECC students new opportunities for completing an on-line baccalaureate degree, while balancing work and family responsibilities. Thousands of students have attended IECC since the formation of the four colleges in the 1960s and 70s. Supported by local and state revenues, IECC is one of 40 community college districts in the state recognized by the Illinois Community College Board.
