The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) and Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) are entering into a new partnership that will provide DMACC students with a streamlined pathway to a four-year degree - all while benefiting from the convenience of the Des Moines location.

Known as “UNI at DMACC,” the new 2 + 2 program is designed for students to complete their first two years at DMACC, with the remaining two years completed through UNI on the DMACC Urban Campus. Students graduating from the program will earn a Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree. Designed to make degree completion easier for DMACC students by eliminating the obstacles of relocation, the program will prepare even more students for careers that require a four-year degree.
