4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Other than the enrollment/financial aid nightmare, I'm very happy with CPCC and I'm glad I chose to stay here.

College Junior

Overall Experience: I have not graduated, nor am I actively looking for a job so answering this question would be inappropriate.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I definitely prefer online classes because it allows me to spend more time working.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process was ridiculous. I was forced to apply even though I already know I don't get financial aid. They told me over the phone that I couldn't go to orientation unless I went through the whole financial aid process.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Enrolling in this school was an absolute nightmare. I never knew who to believe, because I felt like I was just given random information so I would go away. The registration desk would tell me one thing and and the advising desk would say that they've never heard of it. It was just a complete headache. I considered just stopping everything and going to a different college multiple times.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The campus is beautiful. It definitely does not feel like community college. The libraries, student centers, and athletic centers all fit my general needs.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not graduated, nor am I actively looking for a job so review this topic would be inappropriate.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The typical student at CPCC is ambitious and has many short term college and career goals.

2 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Everything is a hassle with regards to new classes, registration, etc. Not much flexibility. Transferring credits from my previous community college was easy.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: The campus is great. I have no problems with what my school offers..

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I haven't experienced this yet, so not sure.

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think it's average. I think education is too expensive compared to the quality I am getting. Online is not beneficial and many professors are discouraging and not inspiring at all. What happened to teaching a love of the subjects not making students hate them?

4 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: Lots of diversity at my school. I like that there is a mix of people. Everyone is pretty open to differences and other's. There are no challenges so far as far as being different.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Im finding that even if the professor is very knowledgable, it is hard for us students to understand his level. The course is a Summer course, so it's short and packed with information. We go through 3 chapters in a class and it's very difficult to absorb so fast.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I haven't dealt with these offices a lot yet. Most people I have spoken with about future plans have been helpful.

2 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Online courses are frustrating because many times there are technical issues with opening assignments, etc.

You can not get a hold of the majority of professors for online classes. It's something you learn to just get through rather than really learning from.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Just as with any field, my major at my school has great points and bad points. You really have to deal with both and stay focused on goal. Although sometimes, there are challenges, for the most part I am finding the faculty and staff fair and helpful here.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I think registering could always be easier, but maybe that's wishful thinking. Having to fight for a seat in classes I have to have is very stressful. There should not be a problem with availability if it's your major. I try to stay on a timeline for graduating and finishing this part of my education, but not getting one class I need can and has messed up my plan before. Curriculums are fine. It's the process of getting the class.

In regards to professors, it can vary widely. Ive had great ones and awful ones. I am studious and cover my material given in classes, however, some exams have nothing to do with the material we are told to study? It seems hopeless at times to pass. Not sure why there is often a disconnect between lectures and exams.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I don't think there are enough student centers at CPCC.

Tuition & Financial Aid: My experience with financial at CPCC as been exceptional. They honored my financial appeal after I had reached the 150% mark with my Pell Grant.

Finally, after reviewing my academic history and performance, I was allotted more time and financial aide to continue working toward my second degree.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: At CPCC the learning experience and the assistance from the staff made me feel it was my school and I was glad to be there. Now that it is time to leave, I have begun comparing my next college to CPCC, and its by far winning the race.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The experience U had with a career counselor was aw some. She was both patient and knowledgeable.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I enjoyed on line class and the instructors have been knowledgeable and approachable throughout the semesters.

3 College Junior

Student Body: I have not dealt with any sexual pr religious intolerance since I have been a student.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: South Piedmont Community College thus far as accepted all of my credits.
