Officials from North Iowa Area Community College and the University of Iowa signed an agreement Wednesday that will allow students to complete their first two years of a bachelor’s degree at NIACC and the final two online. Students will be able to take the online classes at NIACC or even at home. Sally Mason, president of the University of Iowa, said the partnership will allow students who already have full-time jobs and family commitments in North Iowa to get their bachelor’s degree from the university without having to “uproot their lives.” The university has entered into similar agreements with several other community colleges in Iowa over the past year.
