The financial aid process is a nightmare. I read the reviews and hoped it was just a few isolated incidents but no, their process is outdated and never arrives without some type of complication. My instructors have been very good though.

Campus is great, school is fantastic, but they worship their basketball team that they got straight out of Compton.

I attended and graduated from Indian Hills Community College with an Associates of Arts and Science. The financial aid office is a nightmare and did not attempt to make the process user friendly for their students. There was always a wait and the receptionist was always rude. The most I ever ended up waiting was about an hour and a half to speak with an advisor. I missed out on financial opportunities because of lack of follow through and updates in regards to my financial aid. After attending IHCC, I then proceeded to attend/graduated from 2 other colleges. I didn't realize what a disservice IHCC did until I went to these other colleges and was able to compare the experience. I am just so disappointed that they would treat their students so poorly. Unfortunately, my brother also decided to attend IHCC. I warned him in regards to the financial aid office and he also had a horrendous experience as well. Unfortuneately, he found out that the financial aid office was not not the only department that was unorganized and practiced poor service. My brother decided to switch majors mid term and dropped the classes that applied to that particular major. He went to the academic advisors office, dropped the classes, talked to his professors in regards to the classes he was dropping all within the time frame so that it would not affect his grades. Sad to say, the process was not completed correctly and the office never processed his form to drop the courses. He was surprised to see multiple F's on his transcript. This was an extreme blow to someone who had an A/B average. My brother, my parents, and myself set up a meeting and spoke with the person overseeing the Academic Affairs office and she promised to follow up in regards to the issue. The advisor who was supposed to process my brother's request to drop the courses did not have the records that he filed.....they magically disappeared. The person overseeing the Academic Affairs office never contacted my brother again and never persued the issue further despite saying that she would do so. My brother had to get his GPA up follow this incident at another school before he could apply at the school of his choice. Because of this occurence it has resulted in my brother having to pay extra money for courses that he should not of had to take to boost his GPA, scholarship denial d/t GPA, and a delayed entry and start in his particular study. It was a hard pill to swallow for a 20 year old who wants to get on with his life and finish up his education. I would not recommend anyone to attend IHCC unless you have money to burn and you do not care about your grades. This college has resulted in financial misfortunes for myself as well as my brother. I am the oldest of 7 children and my other siblings will definitely not be attending this poorly managed college that mistreats their students/customers.

I have been at Indian Hills now for a little over a year and a half working on my nursing degree. I love nursing and wouldn't change my degree, but I can't say the same about the school. I have had nothing but problems since the day I started. I have never been at school that has misplaced my financial aid information and would tell me that they had everything they needed until I called to find out why my tuition was not paid, only to find out that actually they did need something. Furthermore, the staff has proven to continuously be unhelpful about my education. I am a hard working student with good grades trying to prepare myself for a 4 year university. I was mislead about an AA degree being beneficial for an out-of-state university and ended up taking unnecessary classes and paying for them out of pocket. And all this while being shipped from one office to the next and back again to try and get assistance about my degrees, to find out that the first place I was at could have actually help me. Many times it is really difficult to be able to fit in any extra class within specialized programs like Nursing because the arts and sciences class are not scheduled at functional times for these types of students. Usually one or two classes are set up and the school offers little flexibility. In addition to the inconvenient class schedules they put out, they have not only with just one class, but two classes within a single term have over-lapped them so a portion of the class is in-class lecture to only go home and do the rest of the class online. Out of state students are paying out of state tuition for an online class when online classes are offered for in-state tuition price. The school is by far the most unaccommodating and stressful experience that I and many of my friends have had when it comes to the administrative aspect and the departments designed to assist students in their education. I have received nothing but uninterested attitudes from staff members about doing their jobs and attitudes about seeking assistance from employees who want to do nothing more then hurry up and get out for the day. I have seen the bookstore locking the doors on students 20 minutes before closing time and get still getting an attitude about how the remaining students are lucky they still have a couple minutes before the computers are turned off. I don't expect staff to cater to students, but I would appreciate seeing staff who care about their jobs, I have learned being nice gets me walked all over, and nobody should have to demand that educational assistance is provided by staff.
