Indian Hills Community College program for veterans

Daily Iowegian

OTTUMWA — Veterans who would like to attend Indian Hills Community College, but who do not qualify for other VA educational benefits programs and are not enrolled in a federal job training program could qualify for a new program.

The Veterans Retraining Assistance Program  offers 12 months of retraining assistance to veterans who qualify.  To be eligible, a veteran must be enrolled in a college program that leads to an associate degree, non-college degree or certification and train for a high-demand occupation.

The new program will be available July 1.
