4) FX290 E-Reporting & Communications for the Clerk’s Office: This class is held at Research Park South which is a 5-minute drive from the Gateway Hotel and Conference Center.  We encourage students to car pool as parking is very limited. If you wish to bring your own laptop, you may but we ask that it be a Windows platform (not Apple) to make sure that everyone is doing the same thing. If you do not have a laptop, one will be supplied. To view map to Intrans, click here.

5) CL320 Records Management: This class is held at City Hall in Ames at 8:00 am. (A map to the facility is on our website). Carpooling is recommended as free parking is limited.

Scholarships: Scholarships are available towards tuition at the Institute through IMFOA and the sale of sweatshirts at the Institute and Academy. The deadline for these applications (found on our website) is April 1. Awards will be announced by the end of April. Please do not register prior to hearing if your application for a scholarship has been granted. We will make sure that there is sufficient room in each class.

Sweatshirts: We sell sweatshirts as a way to keep everyone warm (the rooms are sometimes chilly) and to offer scholarships. This year the shirts are antique sapphire or kiwi with a white logo (click here to view the colors). This year if you wish to make a $25 donation to the scholarship fund without purchasing a sweatshirt, this option is now available.
