The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

ICCC is awesome. There are personable teachers, a large campus feel, excellent music and drama departments, and the college is generous with scholarships. I’ve had some of the best experiences of my life here.

If you are of color do NOT go here! I sent my girls, whom are bi-racial, here this school year. They got scholarships to be on the dance team and we were excited to be a part of the ICCC community. We are from MN and were naive to the racism we would find just 4 short hours away. We have dealt with constant racism from the ICCC community. From my girls openly being told by other students that they do not like black people, to my girls being assumed by staff to be the issue when Caucasian students that were racist would falsly blamed them for things to cause hardships for them, they have constantly been marginalized and punished for things they did not do. I wish I could leave a better review as we paid a lot of money for the girls to attend college here, but instead I am hoping that my review will keep others from going through the same negarive experience my girls had to endure. :-(

Professor Heidi Clarck is horrible and the whole school system is a scam. I joined the advanced nursing program and the professor waited until the end of the first exam to tell me to go to the nursing office for the ATI package. The test was on ATI which every thing in the package I received afterwords would have greatly helped me on the exam. She disorganized and acts nice. She gets mad when she's asked a question she does not know. She will always say to things in the slide that has to the with chemistry we don't have to know this. One student stressed for her to still explain the chemistry part, and she clearly stated ; she didn't know. How can you have it in your slides and not have any idea. After all of this ;the nursing department tried to get me to stay. I was uncomfortable in the school. The town is unwelcoming. They now made up a funny bill for me to pay after I withdrew. I will alert any student on any site possible to stay away from Iowa Central Community College and specifically the nursing program. I would give negative stars if it was I choice.
