Iowa Central Community College Reviews
Iowa Central is a great college to attend online and they do make one work for their grade. My passing grades came from hard work and dedication to the program. A person has to want to make it work, not expect a free degree without working for it. The instructors were extremely friendly and helpful most of the time. Iowa Central's financial aid office gave direct answers and was helpful when their was a question regarding student loans. I am proud that I finished with Iowa Central and glad to be a Triton alumunus.
Iowa Central is a great school and as everyone is stating they don't just hand out passing grades , you have to work for your score. The instructors are very helpful and encouraging, they care about your education unlike other schools. My classes are somewhat challenging but I strive everyday because i know in the end its gonna pay off. I'm thanking ICCC now and when I graduate for helping me make my future brighter.
I would like to start off by saying this has been an amazing experience for me. I wish I would have known about this school before I enrolled in University of Phoenix. I would have saved myself from wasting money & my valuable time. Needless to say, I would highly recommend this school to anyone that is looking for a good school & where you won't get looked down on when you apply for jobs and other schools. This school is not passing out A's to anyone, you have to put in hard work to get a good grade. In my last set of classes they changed all text books to e-books which I think is great. I am now in the process of looking for another school, but I am proud to let other schools know that I graduated from a community college and my school ranked in the top 10 schools list. When talking to my adviser or financial aid worker they were always professional and got back to me in a timely manner. I would have someone call me every week to see how class is going etc.. Bottom line is that I had a great experience a lot of my classes are transferable to top Universities. It's hard to find a (no-profit)community college that has a full degree online.
I loved it, I certainly loved it! I wake up each morning feeling proud of what I have accomplished. I studied to receive a degree in human services and then became undecided in what I wanted to do. I had an option to receive a degree in general studies instead. Now about the college courses. If you experience difficulties in class, the instructors work with you until the material has been learned. If you have issues with financial aide, the workers in that department are there to assist you and they help you tally every nickle. I was blown away by the campus bookstore employee who took my name and number, did research on a hard to find textbook and called me back with the information. That does not occur often. Now, about the courses. The courses are not easy, for goodness sakes, it's college! There is no skating on thin ice at ICCC. The instructors do not cut corners or simply pass you just because. You have to produce satisfactory work to make the grade. If you do not understand the material being taught, there are tutors to guide you as well as the instructors. Studying for my degree at ICCC was similar to a great adventure. They have different forms of media to aide the students in learning the objectives that are being taught. In addition to that, the instructors are professionals, many of whom received their degree(s) at ICCC continued their learning at a partnering university and came back to ICCC as professionals. If it seems as though I am bragging, I probably am, however; I would not change a word. Although I am now studying at the University of the Cumberlands in Kentucky, I rate the instructors, the course work, supporting staff and the student population to that of Iowa Central Community College. Guess who comes up as the exceptional winner? If you said ICCC, you are correct!!
I had a great experience at Iowa Central Online! I chose Iowa Central because it is LESS expensive than many other schools at $305/credit hour, the school is respected because it is a Community College, not a corporation, and because the courses don't require group projects. I have a busy schedule and felt coordinating with 3 other classmates to complete group projects would be too much of a hassle. The admissions, FA, and Student Services staff were all wonderful! I am now moving on to complete my Bachelors degree. I would highly recommend Iowa Central!
