4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education I'm getting is well worth the money I'm paying. I got a big financial aid, because I have a local scholarship that helps pay for my tuition and fees. I'm fine with the expense because I know my degree will make a difference in my career. I learned the hard way that it's very important to get all the right financial aid forms in on time.The only thing I wish the school would do differently is make its fees better known.

Campus Resources: The facilities on campus aren't bad. There's a gym. Even though it's not a campus students live on, it's definitely a comfortable campus to hang out at between classes, whether you're getting coffee from a canteen store or catching up on some reading at the library.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: My school has A-Step programs for students who wants to become teachers. There is also a program for adults who wants to become teachers and for teachers who wants to get higher degrees. My school also has a CAPP program for ELI students who wants to finish their ELI courses early, so that they can take the required courses for their majors to graduate and that they don't have wait many years to finish the required courses that are needed to graduate.

College Junior

Online Courses: American Samoa Community College does not offer online courses at the moment. However, I have enrolled on campus and the learning environment is excellent for associating with students and faculty members because it is an open environment. There is always a positive atmosphere and help just around the corner when it is needed. Everyone is friendly and open to assist with a concern or questions. I have never hesitated to ask anyone for help, because I know that I will be referred or assisted immediately. I really like the interaction with others because there's always a push and positive support to keep going until you accomplish your goals.

Online Courses: One thing I love about online courses is the registration process and the free time I have at home. Also I can work on my projects at my convenience anywhere whether at home or simply at the park.

4 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: My school consists of people with full-time jobs or families. But still I see that they make it a priority to attend school every day so they can have a better future.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm an education major, and it is a relief because our island cares more about education than anything else and they provide continuously through education.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Academics offer are a bit on the edge in American Samoa Community College. There are less to be truthful including scholarship opportunites. I can only wish that there were more, so I can be able to apply to them other than other places outside of the territory.

3 College Junior

Student Body: We rarely see our student body act out in creating new actiivites that can benefit the school and the students. When they do, they tend to qualify some students and not others. Most of their activities were fundraising for themselves adn not for others. A few charitable donations from them and that it about all.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Academic Processes – It is sometimes difficult to find time to discuss plans about my desire to transfer off-island. Also, I have had to take more classes because my program had classes that were non-transferable.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Cultural Influence – Because the majority of the population on campus is Samoan, the influence that our culture has on our policies is very high and easily noticed. Even though we dress in the western fashion, we do so conservatively in respect for our peers, our teachers and ourselves.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Facilities Are Not Terrible – Again, our campus is abundantly blessed with resources, but the time constraints are not always convenient.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Limited Time on Computers – Although we face no problems network-wise, the allotted time that we were given to use computer labs were sometimes inconvenient and made it hard to get things done.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Registration is a pain every year. Waiting in line for a very long time and not knowing whether or not your class has been closed or not. Its horrible, but sometimes when you get there really early you might be lucky.
As for the curriculum, its great. I believe the workload is at minimal, however, it is still very manageable and flexible enough for a student like myself to have a job.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Liberal Arts & Marine Science – The workload is average for the liberal arts major as for the marine science major I am going to be overloading the amount of classes I will be taking next semester. So it will be an awesome experiment when I get into this new Fall Semester.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Community College Is a Great Kickoff – American Samoa Community College was a kickoff for my college education and so far my experience with the college here is quite good. I love the one on one a student has with his or her teachers. The advisers are helpful as well especially when a student would like to transfer to a university or when a student needs help to make strategic plans especially for myself who is a double major.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: We Need an Upgrade! There are only 4 computer labs on campus with 10-15 computers in them. However, most days not all those computers are working properly. They're outdated computers that the school have to find computer geeks to fix computers ever other day. Also, students do not have access to the internet on campus except through these computers!

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: Our Facilities Are Terrible! We have a gym, library, cafe and benches that are out of date. The only equipments we have at the gym are 2 basketballs, 2 volleyballs, and a volleyball net. The cafe is really small and many students eat off-campus. the library only carry books that are 7 years old or older. ANd the benches are not really benches. Guests who visit the school must be willing to stay in the instructors' lounge when they want to sit or rest.

3 College Senior

Career Services: What Career Center? American Samoa Community College is a small college, and most might think by the second semester you would know every single department and services the school has to offer. But the no one seem to visit the Career Center. It's always empty! The best way of finding a job is to talk to your advisors, instructors, or program coordinators.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Be Early – Be early to sign up for FAFSA. The late you sign those papers, the late your money is. Also, the moment those papers are out for your instructors to sign, get it right away and have it signed so you can get the earliest batch to get your financial aid. It's free money, so take advantage. Also, ask questions about your deductions when they hand you a receipt because most of the time they just hand you the FAFSA detail without explaining it to you. Know how much you are supposed to get, and know how much they are supposed to deduct from your financial aid.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I give ASCC a B because the online website has not been updated. There is no online login and so students have to come extremely early or sleep at the campus before the day of registration to stand on the line and post their classes. There aren't enough programs for the school, or students and their major. It is pretty laid back because the students are really friendly and open.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Sometimes people get more than they deserve because they are in account with the financial aid office. Others just have a hard time in filling out there paper works only to get a response that they did not received any process work. It may be a good benefit for the first time but when you look at the charges that they cut, most of those charges are quite bizarre. The students of ASCC are still questioning these charges and it would a long time to get them straight out (I think).

College Sophomore

Career Services: I just started and I did not have any problems with the career services at American Samoa Community College. However, I can guarantee that the jobs that people would get faster and easier is the education and the military jobs. American Samoa has great influences and encouragement to these two aspects of career.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like my school. I do not have anything against it. It is only the fact that I do not have that much of an experience due to the lack of materials. I have not attended any school functions ever since I started but I was hoping to but I am not the kind of pride hugger to a school. As long as I can attend a school that would get me a degree with experience, it is all I could ask for.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Takes four hours to register and get your classes posted.
