North Iowa Area Community College invites adults, ages 23 and up, to apply for an Extreme Makeover – a unique makeover that changes lives. For more than 16 years, NIACC has been providing adult students with this opportunity to return to college at no cost.
Extreme Makeover: College Edition is a contest where two lucky winners receive an entire year of free tuition, textbooks and more. “This is an amazing way to makeover your life with a new education,” said Rachel McGuire, NIACC Director of Enrollment Services. Three other finalists will win half-price tuition to NIACC for the 2022-23 academic year.
Oscar Madong of Mason City, one of last year’s winners said, “Winning the Extreme Makeover contest has been one of the significant moments in my life. I must say I have been truly made over and cannot imagine not having won this scholarship. I currently have a totally different view and aiming higher in life having been exposed to the opportunities that college presents. I am forever grateful to NIACC and encourage everyone out there to never give up and keep their eyes on the prize.”
Yanileth Guzman of Belmond, also won a year of free tuition, fees, and textbooks.
The three other finalists – Shawn Snelling, Robert Putney and Samantha Mary each received half price tuition to NIACC for the 2021-2022 academic year.
