Student Services On Campus
Just because you are taking your classes online, doesn’t mean that you can’t utilize the on-campus services. Check with your campus to see what services are available to you. Please visit our Student Services page for more information.
You will be assigned an advisor to help guide you through picking classes, transferring and graduation requirements. These advisors are here to help you with any questions you have regarding your educational career. You can find out who your advisor is by looking at the top of your degree audit. You can find their contact information on our directory at www.iowalakes.edu/directories/staff-directory.
Transferring Credits to another Institution
Students wishing to transfer the credits they earned at Iowa Lakes Community College will need to complete a transcript request form and return it to the Records office. The transcript request form can be found at www.iowalakes.edu/registrars-office/transcripts. There currently is no charge for transcripts. Students should also request an official copy of their transcripts, after all grades are posted, for their own records.
Tutoring and Paper Proofreading
Each student has 15 hours of tutoring for the academic year (August-July) available through Smarthinking. There are a few different ways to get help with your classes, you can talk with an e-instructor or a tutor, submit a paper for proofing, access academic resources and the voice + whiteboard tutoring. You will receive an answer to your questions within 24 hours. Other tutoring websites include Khan Academy, OER Commons, Academic Earth, or Hippo Campus.
You can access online resources through the Iowa Lakes Library. The Library has many resources that you can access for completing your coursework. You can access the databases by going to www.iowalakes.edu/student-services/library and select what type of media you are looking for on the left.
