New Student Registration (NSR)

Welcome Reiver!

We are excited that you have selected Iowa Western as your institution to continue your academic journey! Our goal now is to ensure that you have all the necessary tools to be a successful student.

What to expect:

As a new student, you will begin receiving a series of emails from the Admissions Office within a few days of applying. These emails will guide you through the enrollment and registration process. All communication will be sent directly to the personal email address you provided on your application, with a few phone and text reminders.

Reiver Online Campus (ROC) – ROC is your student portal that will house all of the resources you will need to be a successful student!

ROC login information: An email will be sent 48 business hours after you have received your acceptance email. It will contain your login information, along with step-by-step instructions.

Multi-Factor Authenticator: Iowa Western uses multi-factor authentication (also known as MFA or two-factor authentication). This will require all students to verify their account when signing into your IWCC email, ROC, Canvas, and other systems that require using your Iowa Western account to log in. For setup, review our step-by-step MFA instructions.

New Student Registration: Our office will send out an email 7 business days after your acceptance email with step-by-step instructions on how to register for your classes.
