Illinois residents from the IECC district benefit from a reciprocal agreement where nearly all of the out-of-state fees to attend the University of Southern Indiana are waived, in exchange for similar tuition discounts for Indiana students in IECC schools. The schools themselves are extremely inexpensive, and offer numerous night classes and distance learning courses for non-traditional students.

English as a second language (ESL) courses are offered by all member schools, for the benefit of their foreign exchange students.
