Course to College

Iowa College Aid provides five uniquely different opportunities for Iowa high schools to promote postsecondary education and build a college-going culture in the Course to College program, previously known as the 3-Step Process.

The importance of some type of education beyond high school has become widely evident in recent years, whether at a university, community college or trade school. Studies show that as educational attainment increases, income increases and the percent of population living in poverty decreases. Not to mention that those with some type of postsecondary degree are more likely to have health insurance coverage, vote and volunteer in their communities.

Build a College-Going Culture

Students who attend high schools with a strong college climate are more likely to take the steps toward college enrollment. Iowa College Aid's Course to College program is available for Iowa high schools to help build a college-going culture that will encourage students to plan for and become excited about their futures.
