Student Reviews and Ratings for North Iowa Area Community College
Some instructors are good, others are pretty terrible and should not be teaching. If you are going for a 4 year+ degree, you would most likely have a better experience going straight to a university rather than starting at NIACC first.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I loved some of my classes. I hate the graduation rate and lack thereof. Post grad income is sub par. Now my property taxes support illegal aliens. I majored in criminal law. Ironic.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Was not that great in my experience, but only because colleges require way too many general education classes. I had some good teachers, but many of whom that should not be teaching anymore. Really just is not worth the money.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
They have screwed many people over financially.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
