When I first registered at WITCC, I wasQuite BrightPsychology
When I first registered at WITCC, I was told that I could do an addiction's counseling degree online. Licensing in Iowa for an addiction's counselor does not allow for more than 50% of your coursework to be online. I opted for a psychology degree instead. I was told by my advisor that I needed to take basic math before I took college algebra. She neglected to mention anything about elementary algebra and intermediate algebra, which has now resulted in taking an entire extra year of classes. The other campuses (Le Mars, specifically), have repeatedly lost assignments and tests that they were supposed to forward to my instructor for ICN classes, resulting in either having to take a 0 or completely redo everything. This college is nothing but a waste of time and money.

WITCC is a great value, particularly if youNot so brightUndecided
WITCC is a great value, particularly if you are from Sioux City. Also, if WITCC doesn't have a program you are looking for, there will be another 2 year college within a relatively close drive that does (Iowa Lakes CC for example). However, the college does not have any sports teams at this writing, but they are in the works of setting up wrestling and possibly cross country teams. Also, the quality of professors is inconsistent. Some instructors are embarrassingly easy, while other instructors are extremely hard. For example, the chemistry instructor is so tough, that one needs to be an excellent math student to be able to pass. Every single exam question is a mathematical one. However, the vocational programs, which WITCC is known for, are almost all top notch. All in all, a good value for the money.
