ISU/DMACC cross enrollment program begins

by Steve Sullivan

A new cross enrollment pilot program will make it possible for some full-time Des Moines Area Community College students to enroll in courses at Iowa State without paying tuition for them. ISU students will have the same opportunity at DMACC.

"This cross enrollment program will give ISU and DMACC students greater flexibility in meeting their educational goals, while providing an excellent opportunity to fully participate in the student experience on the partner campus," said President Martin Jischke.

A maximum of 50 students from each school may enroll in the program each semester beginning this fall. Enrollment will be on a first-come basis. Students will apply to participate in the program at their home institution. Credits will be transferred back to the students' home institutions and may be applicable toward their degrees.

Students enrolled full time at DMACC or Iowa State are eligible if they have completed a minimum of 12 semester hours of transferable coursework and are in good academic standing at their home institution. Under this cross enrollment program, a student may enroll in one class per academic year at the partner institution.

No tuition will be paid by the student and no finances will be exchanged between the two institutions. Student participants may be required to pay special course fees if applicable.

Not all courses at ISU and DMACC will be eligible for the cross enrollment program. Summer term is excluded from the cross enrollment program.
