CWI is a very accessible community college with campuses in Ada County, Nampa and Caldwell in Western Idaho. The staff and faculty are very helpful and friendly, and their One Stop Student Services are fantastic. I relied on them a lot as I was going through the application and transferring process. My classes are wonderful. Each instructor really cares about what they are teaching and their students, and are willing to go out of their way to help you!
This is a college that has been expanding due the full range of academic and career-technical courses available to you. They also have Basic Skills Education to help you prepare for a GED, Dual Credit for high school students, and fast-track career training for working professionals that are looking to accelerate their career. Also, if you plan on transferring you can also check the transfer equivalency system that Boise State University provides to find out if your credits transfer, this is the link https://registrar.boisestate.edu/transfers/transfer-equivalency//. I hope you find this valuable, if so, please share to assist others in becoming the best they can be.
