The Upper Iowa Center in Mesa, Arizona, was established in September 2012. The center offers eleven majors on site. Additionally, courses can be blended with the distance learning programs to lead to a degree in several other majors. There are six eight-week terms offered each academic year. All classes at the Mesa campus are offered in the evenings to minimize disruption to working adult learners. Upper Iowa has articulation agreements with the Maricopa Community College District, including Mesa Community College, to assist transfer students. We have also partnered with the City of Mesa, our Armed Forces, and the Fraternal Order of Police, to name a few.
