Overall Rating

My overall opinion of Northwest Arkansas Comminuty College is very good. The staff are well prepared to help anyone with problems and questions. What I liked the most about the school was that everyone was friendly. The advisors helped me get through and wanted me to progress even more than what I was already. The classes are small enough to where if you need one on one time or have questions, the teacher had enough time to go around and get to you. I enjoy going to that school and I will be attending it once more. Some tips for prospective student is don't miss any days of school for silly reasons. The teachers are kind enough to let you get homework and redo tests, but don't miss too many days.
