    I am an online student in Moore, Oklahoma. I was involved in the Moore, Oklahoma tornado in 2013. With that said, it was a devastation in Moore that everything was hit, including all houses within a mile of my house. Altogether, during the time I was cleaning up and transitioning into a new home and rebuilding my city and home- Iowa Western professors and other employees at IWCC were flexible with me and helped me complete my classes in a orderly manor. No, they did not give me special treatment- but they did give me forgiveness. When the tornado happened they were truly understandable and gave me an extent on a the assignments that were due for that week and the next week. They are truly encouraging and did nothing but encourage me to try my best and they easily tested my knowledge.

    Going to community college for your general education requirements is way cheaper than going straight to a university for all four years. IWCC is very reasonably priced considering the great campus, courses, and the awesome teachers.

    I am an out of state student, I believe that it should be less or the same price to take classes here since I choose to leave the schools in my state.

    The price isn't bad, and you can get financial help. For the price it is, it's a great education.
