The campus itself is beautiful, and the professors are great and the people at the One Stop building are very helpful. But Financial Aid is a pain to deal with and when you're enrolled in just one class at a time, and you don't pass, they take away your FASFA and they don't tell you until you apply for a couple classes, then all of a sudden they tell you that you can't. The whole system they have there is outdated and ridiculous. The only thing I enjoyed about the campus was at the St. John Auditorium where there were performances put on by guests coming in, the choir and jazz band performances, and ESPECIALLY the theatre performances. This is a good college to go to if you want cheap education, and if you have a lot of patience.

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 I read the reviews and hoped it was just a few isolated incidents but no, their process is outdated and never arrives without some type of complication.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.

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.

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

I have had such a bipolar relationship with Indian Hills that I don't know where to even start. Good/Positive: Campus greenery is beautiful, Friendly and normally Understanding Teachers, "The Pit" as a social gathering place, Spent most of my time there,The Arts and Drama Department, Easy to Apply, Good Medical/Counseling. Bad/Negative: Living expenses are outrageous, especially for a small college that has not much for variety and choices. Food never changes and I barely ate there, so it was a waste of money for me. My dorm in Trustee was fine, nothing special but I was happy with the space. However I went through 3 different roommates prior to starting and after the first month my other was offered a better living space. The OneStop has often been portrayed as rude. Not only with my own experiences, but with other students as well. I am a friendly, nice, but cautious student. I am going to have QUESTIONS. I do not appreciate being talked down to. I am a first generation traditional student in my family, so a lot of the information isn't common knowledge for me. I understand a bad and busy day, but this happened on several occasions for several different type of questions/concerns. Now, Dropped Classes. I was a very ambitious student, so I got my AA done in one year. However, a class that was needed was apparently dropped. I was not notified about it until I asked the OneStop. They said I should have received an email, which I didn't. This class was suppose to be a simple science class since I am nothing close to a scientist, but I needed the credit. With one day prior to beginning of term, I had to shuffle through what was remaining since I was never notified in time. I was left with a horribly difficult class, ONLINE. Passed with a C, but hated every moment of it. There were other class situations I had with them, but this was the biggest deal to me.Luckily for me, I was involved with the arts department and had some very good teachers. I am not knocking the academics, just the people who are suppose to help and guide you to them. I have been disappointed several times and for following friends thinking about going to hills I warn them of all of this. I often say, "Stay at home or off campus if possible, save yourself the money. Worry about your classes and good luck asking for help. The teachers will be there for you, but I don't know about the rest of the institution."This college is probably excellent for students in the technology center and nursing, however for a future transfer student or gen eds, there is no guarantee that this college is for you.

Not the biggest or best funded community college, but from my experiences through there computer software development program for the last year and a half I have enjoyed it. They have great instructors. And through there internship program I got a I.T job just 6 months into it.
