Western Iowa Tech Community College Reviews

My online learning experience has been amazing! I am a non-traditional student and feel that all classes were easy to navigate and understand. I also work full-time and feel the teachers were understanding with time constraints. However, not too lax where you felt they didn't care. Online learning gave me ample opportunity to complete coursework when I had the time. Some nights I completed some assignments during the middle of the night when my insomnia kicks in. I earned my Associate's degree and have continued on as a transfer student to earn my Bachelor's degree as well. Being a non-traditional student, I was worried that I would feel out of place, as most college students are fresh out of high school. I felt like one of the team and my age was a non-issue. Working with an advisor was crucial in earning my degree. I didn't have any idea what direction I needed to head to finish and she was amazing.

The campus is beautiful along with the on-campus dorms! Staff are amazing and very helpful. Having the opportunity to take online courses and still be able to work full-time is fantastic! Most of the classes I have taken have been great and easy to navigate and learn from. However, I have experienced a couple of classes where there is a ton of busy work. This may help some students learn the material, but I am learn and move on student.
I actually ended up taking most of my classes online this year. I really enjoyed my online classes, but also found them slightly confusing. Most of my classes in second semester were actually in person classes, but because of the circumstances were placed online. Professors handled the situation very well and made arrangements for work and due dates. The professors were quick to answer any question I could’ve had. Online classes are very hard and can be confusing at times, but the professors will always help the best they can. The main thing I had to learn throughout my online classes is that everybody is going through the same problems that you are, so if you speak up everyone will be benefited. Teachers also make mistakes so if you find a flaw let the teacher know.
