Students can apply successfully completed course credit to the completion of an academic program of study at Northeast Iowa Community College or transfer coursework to a four-year university.

All three courses must be successfully completed by the end of 2019 to earn the Entrepreneur Certificate. After successful completion of the certificate, students will receive reimbursement for one course including tuition, fees and textbook costs. (Approximately $775)

Students must be enrolled in the Entrepreneur Certificate to be reimbursed, provided through grant funding, for course tuition, fees and textbooks upon successful completion with a grade of C- or above. Funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis until grant is expended.
