West Delaware High School and Northeast Iowa Community College Partnership

West Delaware High School and Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) continue to partner allowing for students to earn an accelerated Associate of Arts degree in one year or earlier after graduating from West Delaware High School. The partnership between the two schools offers students an opportunity to earn college credit while in high school and minimize the cost of tuition for students and their families.


West Delaware High School offers 23 individual college credit courses in a wide variety of areas, including communications, humanities, math, agronomy, business, auto mechanics, welding and in other disciplines.  In the 2016-2017 school year, students at West Delaware earned a total of 1,436.5 credits and saved their families an estimated $734,051.50 in tuition.


“By taking advantage of this opportunity, many West Delaware students could earn an Associate of Arts degree in one year or, in some cases, just one semester after high school graduation, if they follow the guidance of our NICC partner,” stated Superintendent Dr. Kristen Rickey.


Through the partnership with NICC, West Delaware will offer group and one-on-one advising with Holly Maurer, Manchester Center Director, and Marsha Herzog, High School Partnerships Career Specialist, starting as early as the student’s freshman year.  These advising sessions help each student develop their future academic plans as they work toward earning an accelerated Associate of Arts degree at NICC.
