Here's what our Graduates are saying about the program...
What I liked best about the online classes at Iowa Central was how technical and practical the CNT courses were. The labs were challenging and allowed me to get hands-on experience with real-world software. After graduation, I transferred my credits to a university where I graduated in the top 5% of my class with highest honors. After that, I secured a position as a Security Analyst for a great company, and am now a Senior Security Analyst for Oracle. My next step is to finish my CISM and CISSP-ISSAP certifications and step into a role as a Security Architect, on my way to an eventual role as a CISO.

One of the big reasons I chose Iowa Central was because of the home PC that was sent at the beginning of the program for us to assemble. I liked the idea of bringing the lab to the student!
Cody S. - 2018 Graduate
I loved the fact that it was all online. I have a full-time, 8-5, job outside of taking classes so online was the only route I could really take if I wanted to pursue another degree. I would definitely recommend Iowa Central to a friend because the program and faculty are awesome. I researched some of the staff that were my teachers and they are so knowledgeable, that was comforting to know who was teaching you. I also loved the response time. I have never had a situation where I felt like I wasn't being answered and that's crucial, especially when taking an all-online degree where there isn't any face to face."
