Overall Experience: Their Pre-Engineering program is great.

If you live in the Cedar Rapids area and are planning on going to University of Iowa or Iowa State for Engineering, there is no reason not to start at Kirkwood Community College(unless you got a good scholarship at one of those two). As with any school there are instructors that aren't the best teachers. However, every instructor I have had is more than willing to help you outside of class with understanding the concepts being taught.

Almost all instructors are very personable as well.

Also, I was able to basically pay half tuition due to scholarships received. I didn't even show any financial need.

Campus Resources: There are so many resources at Kirkwood, I still haven't used them all. The library and computer lab is my most used resource, you can print homework, study quietly, and research the online databases and bookshelves for an upcoming paper. There is also a writing and tutoring center where you can go to receive help on practically any assignment. Every Tuesday and Thursday for one hour a day while the teachers have meetings Kirkwood set up several intermural activities and group activities to join or maybe you can just grab a bite to eat. Many other resources including: a bank, Student Services, and Eaglenest.

Campus Resources: There is always computer access somewhere on campus. I've never had the network crash on me, poor speed, and I've always had wireless access. The printers are another great resource, you are given about $30 a semester for printing and each page is normally 5 cents so you can print about 600 pages a semester with no charge to you.

Overall Experience: Kirkwood in my opinion is the best! I'm currently enrolled in my second semester at Kirkwood and studying my liberal arts degree. My experience at Kirkwood has been phenomenal; the teachers and advisors are extremely helpful, the classes challenge you and all at a low cost. What I like the most about Kirkwood is the quality help they have given me to make sure as many credits as possible transfer to the four year college of my choice.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I thought that the financial aid process was a little hectic. Book cost and expectation for the OT program is a little outrageous.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office is very nice and willing to help you with getting it done. Books are expensive but that comes with going to any college or university.
