Education Resources

Students learning on computersSouthwestern Iowa residents can further their education through several different post-secondary institutions.

The Council Bluffs campus of Iowa Western Community College (IWCC) offers a great opportunity for high school students from throughout the area to receive quality education at an affordable price. IWCC offers more than 80 college programs to meet the needs of each individual. Students will find a caring, warm atmosphere on the campus and instructors who truly care about helping their students succeed.  The Council Bluffs campus sits on more than 250 wooded acres just 10 minutes from downtown Omaha. There is affordable, on-campus housing in either the residence hall or apartments.  

The Clarinda campus of Iowa Western Community College is located on eight acres in east Clarinda, adjacent to the city park and fairgrounds. To better serve the college’s seven county area in southwest Iowa, IWCC has convenient locations in Atlantic (Cass County), Harlan (Shelby County) and Shenandoah (Page/Fremont Counties) to pursue education for all residents throughout the area. Students can get a start on their bachelor’s degree by earning their A.A. or A.S. degrees through all IWCC centers.

Also providing educational services to Region 13 residents is Buena Vista University. Buena Vista offers a comprehensive educational adventure, balancing traditional liberal arts studies with innovative professional experiences. In July 1976, the Council Bluffs Center opened on the Iowa Western Community College campus to serve southwest Iowa and the Council Bluffs-Omaha area. The Center Office is located in Ashley Hall, Suite AH 149, on the IWCC Council Bluffs campus. In addition to the evening program, selected courses are available on weekends. Summer workshops are additionally offered. Their web site, http://www.bvu.edu, includes information on applications, financial aid, areas of study, and more.

You may also want to check out southwest Iowa's link to higher education from Iowa's Regents Universities (
SWIRRC). The mission of the Center is to provide increased access to graduate and undergraduate education and other Regent university resources for area graduates.  The Center is located in Council Bluffs on the campus of the Iowa School for the Deaf.  Individuals can participate in credit courses, complete degree programs, and obtain information on admissions and transfer to Regents universities.  For more information contact the center at (712) 366-3647.
