West Delaware High School and NICC Partner
West Delaware High School and Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) announced a new opportunity 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, earn an Associate of Arts degree much faster than the typical timeline and minimizes the cost of tuition for students and their families.
West Delaware High School offers 21 individual college credit courses in a wide variety of areas, including communications, humanities, science, math, agronomy, arts, business, auto mechanics, welding and in other disciplines. In the 2012-2013 school year, students at West Delaware earned a total of 1,611 credits and saved their families an estimated $901,830 in tuition.
“By taking advantage of this new 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 Deb Kintzle, Manchester Regional Education Partnership director, and Kathy Weber, NICC High School Partnerships coordinator, 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.
