Effective today, InterCoast Colleges will no longer charge a registration fee for students who enroll in any of the institution’s programs. Before today, students were required to pay a registration fee to enroll and attend class at InterCoast. We understand that many of our students have limited finances. Students are trying to recover from the difficulties associated with the pandemic, and we want to make things easier for them. We hope that students who are concerned about the cost of registration prevented them from enrolling in classes and would feel more relieved that this great opportunity is available to them now.

Success Stories

Student of the Month in ADC

Why did you choose InterCoast?

I chose ICC because I was looking for a starting point to get into something that had to do with psychology. Admissions really helped me understand what I was getting into and once I started I knew it was the right choice.

Why did I choose ADC? 

I chose Alcohol and Drug counseling because I thought it would help me get my foot in the door for an opportunity in psychology. I am really interested in the psychological aspect of this field. Last year during my senior year of high school I took a psychology class and really liked it. I would be able to not only give back to my friends and family but also to the entire community, to help people to overcome obstacles that they cannot get passed alone.

What is the best part of my experience so far?

It has to be showing up every day and really getting into detail about the field of counseling as well as psychology. The awards are also one of the best parts of the school. I am competitive not only with people that are doing the same as me but with myself. I want to do the best that I can for as long as I can. I am a big believer in working extremely hard to get where I want to go.
