College Freshman

Online Courses: I haven't taken any online courses.

College Freshman

Career Services: I haven't dealt with Career Services.

College Freshman

Campus Resources: I don't even think we have an athletics program...I haven't been to any clubs and I don't know of anyone who's involved with any.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The computer lab is a decent size compared to the number of students using it. Sometimes the room is very full, but there is usually a handful of computers open. My only complaint is there is no where on campus to print in color.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: You have the "I'm just here until the financial aid checks go out" students, (yep. attendance drops quite a bit after those financial aid checks are sent), the really dorky/socially awkward kids who are only here because they wouldn't survive at a 4yr school, the preppy girls in the dental assistant program, the girls who don't have any idea of what they want to do with there life (always in the nursing program. Always.), the hard-working adults, the druggies, the kids who are just here because mom wanted them to go to college, and then I'd say about 30% of the school is hard-working, smart students looking to for a cheap education and wanting to transfer to a 4yr school. Everyone is very friendly and easy to get along with.

College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am not in a specific major at this school.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The teachers are amazing. They are so helpful and they really know their stuff. Most of them have taught at 4yr schools for a long time and started teaching here because of the smaller class size and laid-back atmosphere. The workload can be however you want - I choose to have a heavy work load (17 credit hours) and it is challenging, (and can be overwhelming) but that is only because I've made it that way. The teachers are very accommodating if you need to miss class/or an exam. My only complaint is that there is not enough options as far as class schedules are concerned.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Social life is...non existent for me I suppose. I meet/hang out with people I've met in class and haven't really met anyone outside of my classes. It's a community college, what do you expect? The academics so far have been wonderful - all my teachers have been very personable and they will stop and help you if you need anything at all. It's been a good place for me to start my education, save a LOT of money, and still be able to live at home and continue to work at my part time job.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The teachers are WONDERFUL. All my instructors so far are very flexible about rescheduling missed exams if you're sick/in a car accident (no on-campus housing), etc. I have found it very frustrating that there are not many options for certain classes - particularly science classes. I was hoping to take two science classes next semester, but it was impossible because there was only one daytime option for each class and the class times clashed. Big bummer. There's also a lot of other classes that only have one or two class options and they are extremely hard to get into. I am hoping to transfer to a 4yr school next year, and so far all the universities I've spoken to have told me that my classes will transfer without any issues. As long as you stick to the university transfer program/classes you should be fine.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I submitted my FASFA, and I needed a few different papers to complete the financial aid process at this school. I sent in the missing papers, and then waited several months without hearing anything until I finally called the office about it. It took me a while to get a hold of someone, but it turned out they forgot to move my file over or someone didn't put all the info into the system or something? Anyway, after I called and they realized they had made a mistake, the office was EXTREMELY helpful, I had my financial aid numbers in two days, and it's covering my entire first year - books and everything. My only "complaint" would be that they need more people working in the office - those ladies are so hard to pin down and are always running around like crazy!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Even though I do not know why certain classes (Economics) is required I feel the required classes for the Bus. Admin asso. degree have been helpful in being able to look at the "business world" from different stand points. If I had too, I would choose ACC again because the instructors are passionate about their jobs.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel tuition is too high. After you add book(s) and other required materials(printing assignments, papers, travel expenses) it does become very costly. Financial aid is very helpful but for full time students that do not have time to work, it does not help outside of school with living expenses. Besides financial aid not helping with living expenses or travel to and from class I have no complaints.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Fantastic support services available almost any time.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Most classes are offered day, night and online. There are about 4 classes that I will need for my major (accounting) that are only offered in a seated classroom. Due to the size of the school, not every class is offered every semester. Some are spring only, others exclusively fall. So if you have trouble getting in/through a course, it can be a real setback if it is a prerequisite for another course.

College Junior

Student Body: I am an older student in a classroom with a mostly younger crowd. So I don't really fit in. But everyone is kind and polite.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Every person there as been genuinely helpful and interested in helping me get started on a career path that met my needs. Help was given before I enrolled and enrollment was not a factor in getting assistance.

4 College Junior

Career Services: My impression of ACC is that the entire staff and faculty are there to serve the community. There are an abundant number of opportunities to get assistance with resume writing, interviewing skills, job posting boards, financial aid application assistance, flexible faculty, career counselling, day and night classes, and guidance counselling.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have not taken online courses at ACC.

College Sophomore

Student Body: I am online, so I have not met anyone yet. I am taking classes on campus next semester, so I hope I get to meet new people.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have taken online classes before, but I did not do very well when I took the in high school. These online classes are a little easier to work with.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I was very impressed with the service I got while signing up at Alamance Community College. I was having a horrible day, I was not signed up for any classes. They helped me get into a couple very quickly. I wish they did have financial aid loans.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I have been impressed with the variety of services available to students. They are creative and provide real services like the writing lab, the ride share program, weekly financial aid workshops, guest speakers, computer skills, guidance for adults in the midst of career transitions, resume writing and job postings, etc. They don't even require that you enroll to take advantage of these services.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I find that the professors are sincerely interested in their students. The administration plans course schedules to the advantage of the students, grouping classes that are related so they can be taken one after the other without big gaps in between. Faculty was more than willing to go out of there way to accommodate me when I enrolled late. Books are always expensive. But I will be able to use my texts for multiple classes, making them much more cost effective. They provide lots of help filling out the FAFSA.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I was thrilled to find out that a 2 yr accounting degree, combined with the BSBA I have from ASU, will qualify me to sit for the CPA when I am done. Nice to know that your education carries some weight.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I really like ACC. Not much in to athletics. I do wish they had more sidewalks around the perimeter. There are many days I would have taken a walk around campus for a little exercise between classes if there were sidewalks to facilitate that. Not a fan of walking in the gutters.
