Tuition and fee policies are based on a sharing of cost by students, taxpayers of Iowa Valley Community College District, and the State of Iowa. State reimbursement is received for students who are residents of Iowa; none is received for non-residents. On average, state appropriations provide approximately 47 percent of the cost of education at IVCCD. The IVCCD Board of Directors reserves the right to change tuition and fee schedules, as well as refund policies, in accordance with federal and state laws.

* Tuition and fees are subject to change. For all students, audit tuition is the same as credit tuition.

** An additional Distance Learning Fee of $13 per credit hour is charged for internet/online courses.
