Career Services: It's a small school. Going there doesn't mean much, it's just a cheaper alternative to expensive schools.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Either way, paying money sucks. So even thought there is nothing to really complain about, it's still just okay.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Everything is fairly good for the most part. It is a small college, so it's not as advanced as it could be, but I do feel like they've done the best with what they have.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer network is good. Every room has a desktop with a projector for the instructor, and the library holds a large computer lab. The WiFi is good, most of the time. I have not printed anything on campus, but I do know that is available.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: Most everybody here is friendly, but of course, students generally hang out with their own friends they formed possibly in high school of earlier at Coso. Meeting new friends/faces takes effort.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Being a California Community College, you're going to get a great price for the education. Financial aid is very easy to apply for, and since veterans/veteran-dependents can earn a full tuition-waiver (CalVet), the price is essentially reduced to the cost of books.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: I feel that the students do not really take full advantage of the facilities offered at Coso.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Cerro Coso has a great math and science population, however small it is. The workload of classes is fairly easier, at least when it compares to UC's and the Cal States. Tutor services help immensely.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The professors on campus are great, and their classes are not much of a hassle at all.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Just about every online class has a significantly lower workload than the on-site equivalent. Of course, the student MUST know the material since some courses require proctored exams. Overall, it's great having a great online variety.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most everybody here is looking to either transfer or earn their associates. Be careful though; students get a little too comfortable here at Coso and their plans will most likely get delayed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The gym is only available to athletes and those taking the Lifting classes, which is fairly odd since that's such a small group of students. The library is excellent, campus is okay, and the activities on campus are very limited. A pool table for students and a television with a gaming console to check out.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The library would be the place to be in order to use a computer. I hear that other computer labs are located in the main building, but I never made use of 'em.

College Freshman

Career Services: I personally never made use of Coso's Career Services, but of course the offices are available and their staff seems active.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Credits transfer easily - Must register early for classes!

4 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: the online courses had more options than some of the on-campus classes. the workload was a little more than in the classroom work, but it helps to motivate the student to work harder, and keep a closer eye on their grades.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The tuition is cheaper, the atmosphere is small and friendly. The class sizes are small and intimate, and the teachers are available for questioning. Also if you live far away from the campus there is the option of online classes, as well as online tutoring.

5 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: I barely had to pay for many expenses, except gas and food. My financial aid helped to assist me with all the other expenses. The financial aid was helpful in helping me to get aid to pay for my tuition, books, and fees. A tip for getting financial aid is asking a lot of questions and keeping on top of things.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The class sizes were small. The coffee is excellent in the cafeteria.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: I found this college has prepared me for a university. The atmosphere is small and very intimate, and the classroom size is small enough. The teacher's were available to meet with the students for questions during office hours.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I have never visited the career center, but I am sure they were able to assist graduates in getting jobs.

5 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: There are many different clubs, and a lot of diversity on campus.
