NIACC offers winter break courses


MASON CITY – For the first time, North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) is offering courses when students are normally on winter break. A limited selection of NIACC courses will be offered December 16-January 10. Some courses are offered face-to-face and others are offered online.

Classes held on campus are estimated to last about three hours per day.

“We are excited to offer this additional opportunity for students to earn credits,” said Terri Ewers, Vice President for Student Services at NIACC. “These courses are open to all interested people — current NIACC students and new students to the College.”

This is also a great opportunity for students who attend other colleges or universities.

“If your son or daughter is coming home from school for the holidays, we encourage you to talk to him or her about enrolling in one of these classes during their winter break. They can pick up some credits while they are home for the holidays and we’ll help them transfer the credits back to their school.” Ewers said. “It’s a great way to get ahead or make up credits.”

Registration is now open. It’s easy and does not require an appointment. All registration takes place on the NIACC web site at

The deadline to register is December 6.
