Illinois Central College is encouraging prospective students to enroll by making the process quick and painless.
Wednesday was the final day locals could stop into the East Peoria campus and get help from the professionals.
ICC officials say the "Express Enrollment" process takes a maximum of couple hours.
New student Marguerita Osteen said it only took a few minutes.
"I'm pretty excited," said Osteen.
"It's giving me a hand for where I want to be in life," she added.
"It allows students to come in and do everything quickly," said Beth Mcclain, Dean of Enrollment Management."
"Staff is prepared for that, and we prep our staff to handle an influx of students," said Mcclain.
