Registration is now open for March 2023 courses through the Iowa College and Career Readiness Academy.

The Academy was developed by Iowa College Aid in partnership with the Iowa Department of Education and AEA Learning Online and has been endorsed by the Iowa School Counselor Association (ISCA). These Iowa-specific online courses are designed for school counselors, teachers, administrators and other college access professionals.

The upcoming session begins on March 13 and runs through May 7. Each of the courses available through the Academy is tailored for Iowa college access professionals to improve effectiveness in preparing all students for education and training beyond high school.

To register, individuals will need to log into the AEA Iowa Professional Learning website using their current AEA Learning System user name and password. If a new account is created, courses will not be accessible until the following business day. Individuals can register as participants at no cost, or they can select an option to earn license renewal or graduate credit through Drake University, Grand View University or Morningside College.
