Second Chance Pell

Iowa Central has had a long-standing partner with the Iowa Department of Corrections by offering various opportunities to those incarcerated and was the first in the state to offer 2nd Chance Pell. This is an excellent opportunity for incarcerated individuals who are interested in obtaining an Associate’s degree, Welding or Carpentry Diploma, OSHA Certifications, CPR, Forklift certifications, and much, much more!
