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 educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Iowa Western Community College
The advisors are absolute garbage and have no clue what they are doing. All they do is refer you to their website. I've obviously looked at the site and sent you questions about it.... Pretty sure if the site didn't answer my questions it's your job to do so, oh that's right it is your job.Veteran Services has no idea how to do their job. Any question you ask them they refer you to the VA. Your job as Veteran Services is to find and answer the questions Veterans have about their housing allowance and benefits.It's sad because I'm IWCC Alum....Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
This was a great school to attend. I had more fun here than I did at my four year college I transferred to. If this college became a university I would come back.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
The only college out of three that actually helped me succeed. The other 2 colleges I went to didn’t care about students and their needs. This school and the teachers really helped me.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Had a great experience. Affordable, credits transfer to most places and good instruction. Lucky to have it so close to Council Bluffs and Omaha. One of the best Community Colleges in the region.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Wouldn't say it's great but it's not awful either, the majority of the professors really do care and are willing to take time out of their day to help students out and make sure you understand the content as long as they see that you are making an honest effort towards learning the material. On the other hand i'd have to say registration is complete hell as I had to submit my papers for enrollment four times and even then had major issues a few weeks before my first semester started. The communication among the student counselors and you feel more like a number than an actual person due to the lack of time they take to help you resolve your issues... not to mention they NEVER.....NEVER answer the phone.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
