contact you if something needs to be addressed.

passed (a “D-” grade or better), as well as, courses you may have taken at another

Community Colleges' participation in the Iowa Community College Online Consortium
(ICCOC) offers an Associate in Arts Degree entirely online. The Consortium provides
an extensive schedule of classes every semester. However, Ch.33 Post 9/11 recipients
must attend at least one class on campus to receive the full BAH. Otherwise, you will
receive BAH at a reduced rate.
Note: The Department of Veterans Affairs will not approve any developmental courses taken on-line. These classes must be taken on campus.
In addition to the Associate in Arts Degree, our Career Programs in Business Management and Accounting, Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS), Health Information Technology and Cancer Information Management are offered entirely online as well.
