That’s right – you can have Indian Hills YOUR WAY for the 2020-21 Academic Year.  Here’s what that means – we will offer many classes in a variety of formats so each student can select the format that works best for their personal safety as well as their learning style.  Some Health Sciences and Advanced Technologies classes will require students to be on campus, but most Arts & Sciences classes will be offered in the following formats:

  • Face-to-Face on-campus learning will offer the same great faculty and learning opportunities that students received prior to COVID-19, except there will be a few less students in each class. Face-to-face class sizes will be limited to accommodate for proper social distancing and safety measures.
  • Live Virtual Learning (Search LVL in WebAdvisor) gives students all of the benefits of face-to-face courses with the flexibility to “attend” from anywhere. Students who take LVL courses may attend on campus (as space allows) or login at the same time each day for a live lecture, group work or virtual learning activities using Zoom. 
  • Online learning (Search WWW in WebAdvisor) provides students with even more flexibility by allowing them to complete coursework on their own time and online students are not required to attend live lectures or class sessions. Students who take online courses may watch pre-recorded lectures or participate in discussion boards as part of their coursework.

If you’re not sure which option is right for you, don’t worry!  Our admissions and advising representatives are here to make sure you get enrolled in the section that best suits your needs and academic goals!  To schedule a face-to-face or zoom session, please contact the OneStop at or at 641.683.5262. 

Among Iowa community colleges, Indian Hills stands out as a top choice for traditional and non-traditional students. You’ll find more than 70 majors, many online college coursework options, a welcoming and diverse campus and so much more.
