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. We group our degree programs into three main areas: Advanced Technologies, Arts & Sciences, Health Occupations. There are almost 70 specific programs that you can choose from. IHCC's Business and Industry Resource Center is charged with coordinating regional economic development through industrial training and retraining, BioDevelopment and manufacturing extension support, waste management consulting, small business development, job training, and other statewide initiatives.
