Sheldon, Iowa — Northwest Iowa Community College has received national recognition based upon the College Scorecard released by the U.S. Department of Education. The College Scorecard is designed to help parents and students navigate potential schools.
NCC President, Dr. Alethea Stubbe tells us about the data evaluated to issue the College Scorecard.
Dr. Stubbe says NCC is proud to be one of a handful of institutions nationwide whose students come out of school into jobs that pay above average salaries, and is the only school in Iowa to make that list.
NCC’s average starting wage of $38,400 compares to the national average of $34,000. In addition, NCC’s average tuition of $11,500 is well below the national average of $16,800.
Dr. Stubbe says that, in addition to the College Scorecard recognition, NCC, along with fourteen other community colleges, received an award at the recent Legends Banquet.
