Academic Experience: The nursing program is top of its class especially for a community college. The SIM Center is state of the art and provides a real world learning environment for great hands on training.

Overall Experience: Kirkwood has been amazing so far. The professors care about their students and want them to succeed. The class sizes are great and provide students with a more personalized experience with the professors. Classes are so much cheaper than a 4 year program. And credits are transferable to Universities.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am a Business Administration A.A.S. major with a set transfer to The University of Iowa Tippie School of Business to study accounting after obtaining my first degree. This program is newer than the 2+2 program they have used in the past, although I believe that is still an available option as well. Sometimes it seemed like my classes could have been scheduled in a better way to compliment each other or go in order, or that I could have even bypassed some classes, etc had I been more informed, but overall I would say it is a great program as long as you stay on top of everything or ask for help when you need it.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: For being a 2 year community college Kirkwood is amazing! I attend the Iowa City campus, and have loved every moment of it. There can be some bumps in the road, but the faculty are all very friendly and personable. You have plenty of people you can ask for help! There are free tutoring services and we now have transfer agreements with not only The University of Iowa, but a newly established agreement with Mt. Mercy, and optimally many more to come in the future! I believe it is around 1/3 of the price of a class at the University and to be completely honest it will be a much better setting for those coming right from high school or have never left home before. The classes are smaller, and you have more of an opportunity to get to know your professors or ask them for help if you need to. We also have professors at Kirkwood that also teach at the University of Iowa, so they are definitely not lacking in employees with adequate credentials. I would definitely recommend this school.
