    With how low the prices are at NIACC, you are definitely getting more than you are paying for. They could be charging a lot more than they are for all that they offer so it is definitely worth it.

    There is alot of old material that is being taught. Personally I would like to learn about the now, not the foundations. I understand that the foundations are necessary but if we waste a whole semester on the foundation what are we really learning?

    Considering scholarships and work-study paid for all of my tuition, I definitely got a lot of bang for my buck. NIACC is pretty inexpensive when it comes to education, and is a great place to receive an education. If you're considering going to NIACC, apply for as many scholarships as you can, and work! You can be debt free after two years at NIACC.
