Integrity Regulations

U.S. Department of Education Compliance

Back on October 29th, 2010, the U.S. Department of Education released information on integrity regulations that include institutions offering distance education to students in another state to have authorization from that particular state.  States with specific regulations expect institutions to have authorization in order to serve students in their state.

  • Alabama
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Kentucky
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Mississippi
  • New Jersey
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • Utah

  • Minnesota Enrollment:
    Iowa Central Community College is registered as a private institution with the Minnesota Office of Higher Education pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, sections 136A.61 to 136A.71.  Registration is not an endorsement of the institution.  Credits earned at the institution may not transfer to all other institutions.


Iowa Central is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
