IRSC is a great school to attend, whether you are planning to transfer to university or complete a four-year degree on the local campus. The tuition is very reasonable and the course selection is fairly comprehensive. Everyone is very helpful -- from the academic advisors, to the classroom professors and the teachers helping out in the study labs.
