for you!

The evening option at the Peosta campus enables students with daytime commitments to earn a welding diploma and qualify for advancement or a new career locally. Interested? Contact the NICC Admissions Office at 563.556.5110,

You can complete every one of your classes at the center, located at 700 Main St. in the heart of downtown Dubuque. Associate degree credits transfer to other colleges and universities to complete a
four-year degree.
