Established in 1966, NCC was the pilot project for Iowa’s Community College System. At first the College offered three vocational programs to students representing 20 high schools in Lyon, O’Brien, Osceola and Sioux counties. On February 10, 1971, Merged Area IV was expanded when two community districts in Cherokee County requested that they be included with the area.

The North Central Association of Colleges and Schools granted candidacy for accreditation status in 1976 and accreditation status in 1980, which was expanded in 1988 to include the Associate of Arts and Science programs implemented in the fall of 1988. The College received 10 years of accreditation in 1994 and again in 2004.

History & Heritage
Northwestern is a Christian college in the Reformed tradition. That tradition goes back to the 16th-century Protestant Reformation and to the work of John Calvin. Calvinist churches spread throughout continental Europe and the rest of the English-speaking world, including North America, where their best-known representatives have been the Puritans and the Presbyterians.
