Degree Programs

In addition to the UNI@IACC programs, students in the Des Moines metro area have the opportunity to complete their Bachelor of Arts in Accounting degree. Beginning in Fall 2023, our new hybrid model for this degree will allow students to take accounting courses at the DMACC-Urban campus while completing all other business and elective courses entirely online.

As a UNI @ DMACC student, you may qualify for DMACC-specific scholarships in addition to the Future Ready Scholarships, other UNI scholarships, and financial aid. Through these initiatives, students may receive a scholarship covering the difference between community college and UNI tuition. To be eligible, students must complete the FAFSA and meet income and academic eligibility criteria. Completing the FAFSA will allow UNI to potentially reduce or eliminate a student's remaining balance through other forms of financial aid, based on availability.
