Welcome to Northwest Iowa Community College! We invite you to visit our website and step through NCC’s virtual doorway! As you click through this website I hope you find it full of useful information and easy to navigate. One of our goals was that you could find the information you are looking for in three clicks or less. We have successfully accomplished that goal!

An objective within NCC’s Strategic Plan was to, “Enhance the Colleges' Image to External Communities”. One of the strategies identified to accomplish this task was to enhance NCC’s website. We have included the entire campus in the content and functionality of this site. This truly was a campus wide effort.
