College Catalog

Iowa Valley Community College District (IVCCD) operates Ellsworth Community College and Marshalltown Community College, as well as Iowa Valley Community College Grinnell. All three share a common college catalog, which is now online.

NOTE: Copies of older college catalogs are available from the MCC Registrar’s Office.


Iowa Valley Community College District (which operates Marshalltown Community College and Iowa Valley Grinnell) is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (; ph. 312-263-0456), the Iowa Department of Education, and the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships; some individual degree programs are also accredited by agencies specific to those areas of study. IVCCD is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. IVCCD has articulation agreements with Iowa’s Regent universities and many other colleges in Iowa and the Midwest.

Grievance Procedure

Iowa Valley and MCC desire to resolve student grievances, complaints and concerns in an expeditious, fair and amicable manner. Students residing outside of the state of Iowa while attending MCC who desire to resolve a grievance should follow the College’s grievance procedure, outlined on page 13 in the MCC Student Handbook. However, if an issue cannot be resolved internally, you may file a complaint with either the HLC or the Iowa Department of Education (515-281-0319).
