College is a big investment, but Indian Hills Community College has one of the lowest tuition rates in the state of Iowa, and you don’t have to pay for it by yourself. We offer various scholarships to help you pay for a great education using fewer of your own dollars.

Indian Hills Community College operates on a quarter system, offering four terms in a 12-month period (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer). International students (F–1 and M-1 Visas) applying for admission to Indian Hills Community College will have the following estimated costs for an academic year (3 terms or 9 months).

Please note: Additional housing charges will be added to your student account if you stay in the residence hall during college breaks (winter break, spring break, early summer break, and late summer break), as classes are not in session. Please contact Housing for specific information and details.
