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 Iowa Community College Online Consortium strengthens the partner colleges’ delivery of quality educational opportunities supported by a comprehensive set of services for faculty, staff, and students.


ICCOC aspires to be the premier model for innovative, educational partnerships.
