About the ICCOC

In December of 1999, seven of Iowa’s community colleges formed a partnership and organized the Iowa Community College Online Consortium (ICCOC). Representatives from each partner college participated in a comprehensive planning process to design and implement the Consortium’s technical infrastructure as well as establish objectives, policies, and procedures.

The objectives of the ICCOC are to establish resources, train instructors, establish standards of quality, coordinate student services support, communication and implement an informational website. The ICCOC  successfully completes these objectives through the commitment of all Consortium partners to provide quality online educational opportunities to students.

The ICCOC continues to assist our partner Consortium colleges to deliver quality online education to students all over the world. 
The Iowa Community College Online Consortium strengthens the partner colleges’ delivery of quality educational opportunities to students, supported by a comprehensive set of faculty, staff, and student services.

A globally recognized leader in innovative educational partnerships.​​
