College Degree Finder

Itasca Community College (ICC) is located in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. It is a two-year community college that was founded in 1922 and is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Itasca Community College was recently ranked the 5th best community college by The Washington Monthly.

ICC grants associates degrees in applied science (A.A.S.) in engineering, accounting, forestry/natural resources, and pulp and paper; professional certificates in child development, geographic information, and nursing; as well as diplomas in practical nursing, wild land fire fighting, and pulp and paper.

As a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association ( Region XII), ICC offers athletic programs in seven sports, four men’s (baseball,basketball,wrestling,and football) and three women’s (softball,volleyball, and basketball). ICC teams compete in the Minnesota Community Conference. In February 2007, heavyweight Chris Miller, became ICC’s first national champion at the NJCAA National Wrestling Championship.

Surprisingly, global education plays an important role at ICC. Each Fall, about 20 Danish Science and Technology students visit ICC. The international students first spend a few days in New York City, then travel to Grand Rapids, where they spend their first weekend with American host families. During this time students visit the Badlands of South Dakota, Duluth, Minnesota, and usually attend a Minnesota Twins baseball game. The following March, about 20 ICC students travel to Svendbourg, Denmark, where they particpate in classes at the HTX Svendbourg institution. This gives ICC students the opportunity to study abroad in Europe.
