Iowa valley difference


Today's students have a lot of options after high school. Why should students spend their time and tuition dollars with us? Simple - we can offer individual attention, instructors with a vested interest in your success, unique programs, hands-on education, focused career training, and a four-year experience in two years. 

The better question is: why not choose community college?
