School Notes

  • We have beautiful campuses in Centerville and Ottumwa and attendance centers in each of our other counties. Our Arts and Sciences students have great success when they transfer to four-year colleges and our technical students enjoy the highest placement rates and starting salaries in the state. The Ottumwa campus of IHCC is the main administrative campus of the college. The majority of the college's technical programs are housed here, and the majority of our Arts & Sciences students also attend classes here. The volleyball, basketball, golf, and softball teams all call this campus "home." Indian Hills Community College offers a wide variety of majors/programs of study.
