How to Organize a New ICEC Student Chapter

The Illinois CEC strongly encourages, but does not require students in a student chapter to join CEC.  Any student is able to be active in and a member of an Illinois CEC chapter.

To become members of CEC at the lower student rate, CEC defines qualifications as:

Students must be enrolled full or part-time in a matriculating program by an accredited college or university. Students are eligible for the discount for a maximum of 6 cumulative years.  For verification the following information is required at the time you join or renew – University Name, Expected Graduation Date and Degree Program.
