3 College Senior

Online Courses: There is much variation. Some of the classes are very well laid out and easy to follow. The Calendar is clear and simple, everything is due on the same day, once per week, the gradebook is very straightforward, and instructors are quick to reply to emails.
Other classes show little organization and are very difficult to follow. Instructors rarely get back in time and have little participation besides giving quizzes and prescribing readings. There is little communication between students and gradebooks are rarely updated. Calendars have separate items due several times per week and they are difficult to find.

It really depends on the instructor and the work they put into maintaining the class.

Academic Experience: Most of my classes have been very enjoyable. Although difficult, they are not impossible. The instructors are open to questions and always willing to help or to point you to the tutoring services. I have not experienced many, but I have worked next door to the English Department tutoring service and can attest to their excellence. Registration is very packed and it is easy to miss your classes if you do not stay on top, but the advisors are VERY helpful and like to be on a first-name-basis with their students. There are many clubs and organizations on campus. One for almost every major, nearly every religious organization, honors societies, and even a new club called Finishers, which was specifically created for students to gather and show support and encouragement for one another.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Even the "out-of-state" tuition is less expensive than most other schools I have researched. An average, on-campus, four-class semester for in-state and in-district is usually under $1500 including books and tuition. Financial aid is usually quite helpful and willing to answer questions. They are also very good about staying on top of students who need to turn in more paperwork or they aid is being hindered somehow. One semester my tax returns were not matching up and it would have prevented me from receiving my Pell Grant. My financial advisor emailed and called me until she reached me and had me come to her office straight away to fix the problem.

Academic Experience: I am an English major and I absolutely love my degree plan and my department. I worked in the English Department for several semesters and got to watch all of the instructors in action. They are (for the most part) all kind, caring, and encouraging. They enjoy teaching and love being asked for help. I was often in and out of instructors' offices and rarely saw one whose door wasn't open and who didn't have a student with them. The classes are quite varied and very interesting. The instructors attempt to make the book load as inexpensive as possible by finding the literature online or requiring less expensive versions. Overall, being an English major at Amarillo College is very satisfying. If they offered anything higher than an Associates, I wouldn't be transferring at all.

Academic Flexibility: The offer classes at everytime of day. They also have night classes for working people.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm a general studies major so I just did all of my basic classes that I would be expecting like English and History and things like that so it wasn't anything too fancy or unexpected. It seemed just right for general studies.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: For a community college AC has a lot of various computers/printers/learning resources for the students. It offers free wifi which is a major plus and it's not a bad connection either like most free wifi's. There are various tutoring centers all around the campus with great tutors that really help with challenging classes.

5 College Senior

Student Body: There are so many different ethnicity's at AC that it's really quite amazing. There are so many people from different backgrounds and various age groups throughout the college. It's extremely diverse.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Even though it's a community college its been good to me. Registering is easy, financial aid process is near painless and it's extremely cheap to boot!

Tuition & Financial Aid: The process was very easy and the financial aid office had all the information that I needed on the website. Very rarely did I have to visit the office to find more information on financial aid and they would always contact me if I needed to do anything.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I Am Still Unsure – You know it is very difficult to pay for school because we have my sister and her two kids living with us plus my 13 year old uncle. Since my mom does not have custody of anyone, she had to pay for my school. There was no financial aid available because supposively she and my dad made too much money. It is sad when someone is not able to receive financial aid because we can't take account of variables.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Love Computers – I love computers and really do well in this area. I probably should have taken a clep test

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Easiness to Get from One Class to Another – All my classes are relative close. I am so glad that there are police in the area.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Good School – I like it because it is in Amarillo. It is about a 5 minute commute from home to school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: The commercials on t.v. over online courses make them look easy to take. I was under-estimating the actual time and dedication that you put into online courses. I can say that online courses are not for everyone. I had to manage my time and really focus on the time that I had to login for discussion or make sure I studied for a test and the test dates.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Love It Very Interesting – I am a business major and enjoy having these classes the teachers are very good and are understanding of help if need and work with us if need to.I like being able to take these classes because I am already a manager at my job and i like learing new ideas and open to any help I can get

Campus Resources: Have a Lot of Activtives – This campus has so much to offer to all ages and everyone is invited. They have music on the square and volleyball games, along with softball, I enjoy seeing all the people using the gym and just hanging out on beaches studying and eating lunch. Everyone gets along and its different types of people

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I Love Having So Many Places to Go to Get Any Printing Done or Just Hop on a Computer and Do My Work I Have Not Seen Any Problems in This Area Since I Have Been Enrolled at This School – I enjoy being able to go to get papers printed when ever I need to and to be able to get class work done in class if its lab. The lab is opened all hours and if it is not open I am able to go into library and get paper typed and get it printed. There is always someone able to help me if I have any questions. It is great to have one on one if we need help

Career Services: I REALLY CANT ANSWER THIS QUESTION AS I AM A CURRENT STUDENT TRYING TO PURSUE HER DEGREE. I HAVE NOT BEEN TO THE CAREER CENTER.

4 College Junior

Student Body: EVERYONE HERE IS OF A DIFFERENT BACKGROUND. MANY HAVE A FAMILY OR CHILDREN TO SUPPORT. WHILE THEY ARE HAPPY TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS & SOCIALIZE WITH OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE DOING THE SAME THING, SOCIALIZING ISNT A MAJOR PRIORITY TO THEM. THEY ARE MOSTLY FOCUSED ON THEIR WORK.

4 College Junior
