If you’re planning to take all of your classes online, you'll still need to register for orientation. We have an orientation program specifically tailored to online students.

Aside from earning a general Liberal Arts degree, students can also earn other degrees and certificates 100% online — or just take individual online classes — in a variety of academic interest areas.

Kirkwood is the smarter, more affordable way to start your 4-year degree. We have more than $3 million in scholarships available for students each year, and financial advisors who can help you utilize various additional forms of financial aid.

Kirkwood credits successfully transfer to almost any 4-year institution across Iowa and the entire country — including guaranteed credit transfers to the University of Iowa, Iowa State, and UNI.
