Campus Resources: Wireless Access – This school has a very user friendly webpage. It's easy to register and pay for classes online. Online and hybrid classes are available.

Academic Experience: Classes Are Not Hard Enough – Classes at ACC are not hard enough for the students. When there is no need to study for the class, the class is too easy. Studying should be necessary.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Terrible Aid to Students! Students that don't even need financial aid get it. I am a victim of bankruptcy and since my parents "make too much money" I can not get any help.

Online Courses: Doesn't Prepare You Enough – In my opinion Alamance Community College is not a hard enough school. It is way too easy to pass most of the classes and does not prepare you enough for actual college. Most students that transfer to a four-year college after ACC says it is extremely tough because ACC does not prepare you enough.

Campus Resources: Labs Always Filled. The computers owned by the school are almost always taken, so unless you bring your own, you are likely to not have any access to computers. But the internet network is very fast and reliable, except that the server purposefully disconnects all wi-fi users about every hour, who must the reconnect manually to continue access.

Academic Flexibility: Everything Is Great. They give you easy access to the information about what classes your program needs, and the registration process is very easy. Almost all of the classes transfer to almost every other college. They offer many times for different kinds of classes, so you can schedule for any time of the day you need to accomodate to your personal schedule.

Tuition & Financial Aid: If You Do It Right, It Works. The financial aid process is very easy. As long as you plan ahead and know what you need to do, everything goes smoothly. If you have questions, the financial aid office is very helpful and knowledgable. I have only had positive experiences with the financial aid program at the school, and any problems I have had with financial aid in general have been my own fault.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very Affordable and Helpful – Tuition is very reasonable! I have been able to pay out of pocket for the most part. When I did need assistance the FInancial Aid office was very helpful and patient with all my questions. No suprises so far.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: Most Work Part-Time to Full-Time – Most students are hard working individuals who juggle work, school, and kids. Everyone has been very friendly and willing to help each other out when they can.

Overall Experience: My School Has Excellent Professors Who Care About the Students. Every class I have taken has been very interesting and taught by someone who is clearly excited by the subject matter and makes an effort to connect with the students. Each professor has a special place in my heart. I have grown and learned so much from them. The online infrastructure is very user friendly. I do not get involved with school activities because of my work schedule, but everyone seems very nice.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Alamance Community College is a great school to go to. They offer all kinds of majors. Alamance Community College offers car pooling, tutoring when is needed. Have great teachers and great advisers, Our school is a beautiful college they put pride in our campus beautiful flowers and landscaping. When you sign up for a major advising you of what classes you need to take to graduate. It is a lot of work and determination. But anyone can do it with the help of Alamance Community College.

Campus Resources: Unique School – Alamance Community College is a great school to go to, people does not judge you on your background. Mostly excellent teacher and great advisers.
I have enjoy going there learning everything in the Animal Care Management is a great experience for my job in the work field I have an excellent job thanks to Alamance Community College and have made some great friends.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Never Thought I Would Make It – When I first started Alamance Community College I was very nervous and was struggling, it had been almost thirty years since I step foot back in a classroom. I have to thank Jerylin Free my advisor for always believing in me and being there for me. She is a great teacher.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Nice Community – This could just be from my experiences, but pretty much everyone I've been in contact with here has been nice. The "bad apples" are far outweighed by the friendly ones.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Mostly Good. Most of the teachers and classes I've had I've felt comfortable with. That doesn't mean they were all easy, but I didn't feel like I was just a "number" being lectured to. I've had teachers who have been very helpful to me as an individual and it felt like they actually wanted me to succeed. They were helpful to everyone regardless of how they were doing in the class. Some teachers seem distant, but they've been the exception, not the rule.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It's Kind of a Hodge-Podge. ACC kind of runs the gamut. There are some really good and helpful teachers, and some that make learning a chore. Some teachers are more than happy to help you out with assignments and others are less than accessible. Workload varies. I've had classes where I didn't need the book, and classes where I had to read from it fairly often (though some "less than A" students didn't and probably still got along fairly well).

Tuition & Financial Aid: Gerenal Prices for a General Education – I was not eligible for financial aid at Alamance Community College, so my education was paid out of pocket. Since I paid for my education, I took it more seriously. The prices of classes and books were average for a community college yet "you get what you pay for." The tution is fair for those getting an associate in art or science. For programs like welding, animal care and management, auto technology, etc. I feel the prices should be lowered because of career opportunities post graduation. The book store was very steep and most of the income was from the financial aid students. Overall, the general education prices for tution was quite reasonable considering its the same course as it is at a university.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Student Assessment Center – At Alamance Community College, part of tution goes to our Student Assessment Center. This is a tutoring program that provides all materials and resources that a student would need in order progress in class or work on an assignment. There are tutors ranging from fellow students, instructors, and community members. There is always someone there to help and the center is open all day till the college closes. To be fair they do not do the assignments for the students, they simply guide the student in the right direction of understanding their project. Its a wonderful program and should be utilized by all students.

Academic Experience: Community College Student With Big Dreams and Big Aspirations – Alamance Community College provided the fundamentals and experiences that is needed for further education after completion of community college. The instructors and professors treated each student like a full time university student, that is with the work load. The atmosphere was comfortable because of the common interest and history of the students at Alamance Community College. It was a diverse school ranging from fresh out of high school transfer students to senior citizens looking to further their knowledge on a basic subject. Being a community college student is more challenging because we deal with the many struggles of life. Some students have families, most of the students work full time and school, and then there are the students who juggle all three.I am a transfer student looking to transfer to University of North Carolina Asheville. The student advisory team had a plan for to make the transfer easy as possible. Unforturnatley the College Transfer/ C-Step program wasnt what is was talked up to be. Yes, you get your general education credits that are needed, but the school pushes the student to take classes that may not be needed and/or do not transfer. This left me in an unfortunate situation of having to alter all aspects of my life because of the criteria between UNCA and ACC. This set me back and forced me to change my plans. Alamance Community College gave a basic education that was worth its price, but I recommend the transfer students to do the transfer plan on their own to find what is really needed.

Online Courses: Online Course Review – Up to this point, I have not had any classes that were completely online. Most of the classes I have had, were 98 percent was actual classtime, while the other 2 percent was getting information online for papers, reports and/or projects.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have been receiving Financial Aid at Alamance Community College since I retured to school and have not had any problems, until now.

I received an Associates Degree in 1983, received Financial Aid, work-study and a scholarship. I went to work right after college and worked in the field I was trained for for more than 21 years. I then decided that I would like a career change as a Medical Assistant. I have also taken classes since then and have paid out of pocket for all of those expenses. Now, I will probably lose my financial aid because of the new lifetime eligibility rules. I will be able to continue to attend school at least through the summer, but I do not know what will happen when the Fall 2012 semester begins. I will be approximately half way through the required classes for my degree when I complete the summer classes, and may not even be able to complete my degree because of finances and courses that I took for fun, such as Income taxes, quilting, sewing, my certificate in Medical Coding and Billing. I know that the Financial Aid Office is not responsible for the changes, but it is very frustrating when you do not even know if you will be able to complete what you started.

Campus Resources: College Life at It's Best – I have had very good experiences at Alamance Community College. The instructors actually care whether or not a student is successful in their education. Not only are the instructors willing to help a student who has hit a roadblock, but there are many other employees there who are more than willing to help a student in need.
I am in the Medical Assisting Club and we usually stay busy trying to raise money for upcoming graduations so that the graduates themselves will not have to pay as much out of pocket for the graduation/pinning ceremony.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Student Diveristy – The students at this school can very in the ages of 16-85. I have seen many different types of student groups that contained mostly ethnic groups and several different religious groups. My school is very tolerant of student diversity. Academically, there are two types of students. These two types consist of the student that makes average grades and the student that makes excellent grades while being in the university transfer program.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: My Review on ACC's Academics – So far in my college experience at ACC, I had very strenuous workload for all my current and past topics. The professors are very much involved and interested in their classes. When I register for classes my academic advisor shows or informs me of what classes that I am required to take. The class registration is first come and first served, and if you don't immediately register for the classes scheduled at a specific time then you won't get that scheduled class.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: This school has excellent instructors that are really knowledgeable about what they are teaching. The instructors are very much involved with a student's problems and questions. Unfortunately, the financial aid department can improve greatly by offer more various scholarships to students that work very hard in their community and academics. This department should also allow the students to choose what scholarships that want to pursue instead of them choosing for the students. In addition to that issue, the financial aid office needs to send or inform the students ahead of time for a scholarship that they have received.
