Continuing and Community Education

Tuition Assistance Programs


The GAP Tuition Assistance Program provides tuition funding for approved Continuing Education certificate training programs in areas including healthcare, advanced manufacturing, transportation and technology.

Since non-credit programs are not eligible for federal financial aid, this program bridges the funding gap for those students pursuing shot-term certificates.  Funding is provided through the North Iowa Area Community College GAP Tuition Assistance Fund.

PACE is a multi-tiered pathway program that meets you wherever you are in life.  It’s designed for individuals with limited income who lack the necessary funds to reach their educational goals, and for those with skill barriers who need additional education assistance to prepare for college courses.

You can start at NIACC with basic education or by earning your High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED), then follow the steps to a two-year degree.  In partnership with local organizations and employers, we have an expert team of navigators and professionals dedicated to providing you with the support you need to be successful.  We’ll help you, every step of the way.
