Career Services: Cisco College gives you many opportunities to transfer to a university. It is an easy way to get your associates degree, and if you wish to pursue a higher degree they will help you get there.

Academic Flexibility: Cisco College is a great place to start. The staff is very friendly, the professors are very helpful, and it will save you a lot of money. The courses are easy to understand and enjoyable.

Facilities: The school is unique in that it offers many degree plans that you can start using from the day that you graduate. It is also a huge stepping stone for those of us planning to bachelor or master degrees.

Campus Resources: Study are extremely noisy. Students walk through the areas to get to and from class. They are used more as social areas than study areas. The library is cramped and out dated. The book store is always out of books, never has enough materials and is always waiting on an order. They should order based on the number of students enrolled for the next semester and prepare for extras. It is unorganized and very crowded.

Campus Resources: The computer lab is one of the only quite places in the school. The speed of the internet is slow though. The recent update to the system only marginally increased the speed. There is only one printer for all of the lab. Adding money to your account for printing is easy.

Academic Experience: Although my major, Physician Assistant, is not offered, I am returning as a science major. The classes are well put together and offer tons of hands on experience. The lectures flow along with the labs and allow a cohesion between the two. The labs are no more than 10 years old and are in really good shape. The workload is manageable and if you stay focused is very much obtainable.

Academic Experience: Many of my professors have their Phds. They are very versed in the subjects that they teach. The registration process is very strained during peak times. There is limited staff so it can take hours if you need to speak to an advisor. After the rush at registration though, it becomes easier to get the time you need.

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is extremely hard to contact financial aid. The main office is in another city and getting someone to actually speak to you is difficult. The tuition fees for the courses are very reasonable so it frees up more money to obtain a bachelor's degree at another university. However, financial aid in general is tricky. The money for those of us who have previously been to college and are now returning is not there. Many "older", returning students are working full-time and may have even maxed out our aid due to a career change or are still paying on previous loans from years before. There needs to be an easier way to get the money needed to go to college and better yourself.

Online Courses: You definitely have to be more study driven, more focused on the class due to the flexibility and you have to make sure that you are time oriented. Assignments are still due on specific dates, tests have to be taken and the work still needs to be accomplished. I would not recommend online classes for upper level classes that may need additional explanation and expertise. However, classes that entry classes such as speech, history, medical terminology and even an English class can be accomplished with ease.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Although Cisco College- Abilene does not suggest a premium for tuition and fees, trying to communicate with a financial aid adviser was hard. Before class, I emailed the financial coordinator and other counselors for questions I had that pertained to my specific situation. When I finally spoke with an individual at the Abilene campus I asked, " what do students typically do when funding is limited?" She replied " I don't know?!" with a careless attitude. I received no guidance for financial questions as a student. I needed help (answers to questions) to point me in the right direction. Fortunately, I stumbled upon fastweb online...

Campus Resources: The weight room and student center on campus is good. There are campus activities weekly. The school is old but they are continually updating and remodeling dorms and athletic centers. The soccer, baseball and softball fields are great.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The computer network is good. There is computer labs and printing on campus available at all times. The network is reliable in the library and most of the time in the dorm. Cell service is terrible unless you are outside.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am currently an athletic trainer. The knowledge I have gained is priceless. The Head Trainers not only make sure we know what we are doing as athletic trainers but support us in our core classes as well. Cisco is a two year college. The Head Trainers also work to insure that we transition to a 4 year college that not only met our needs but is a good fit for each individual trainer.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Cisco is very student friendly. Not only is there a strong school spirit but the town of Cisco is very involved. Two local churches provide meals to students on Sunday and Wednesday. There is always an activity going on. My favorite is Ranch Day.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I enjoy most of my professors. I wish some would be a little more challenging. Cisco offers a wide range of classes from core classes, athletic training to welding and cosmetology.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: This is the only college I have attended so far. I do plan on transferring to another junior college, as soon as I getting all my basics.

1 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is nothing going on with our school. Cisco is really for older adults or people getting there basics. There is no football. no involvement at all. No college life for younger kids.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The counselors are very helpful. The only thing Iam only getting my basics so I can go to another college to get my associate degree in Dental Hygiene. There is no dorms. It is really for older people are people getting there basics.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Mostly my school consists of young adults, some working full-time jobs, and there is a lot of ethnic diversity. Through my eyes I see people who made the right decision to choose the path of knowledge for a better future.

College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I'm making school convenient for me, I work 12 hour shifts 48 hours a week.
But to me it doesn't matter I want to be successful.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I have been happy for the most part; but it depends on the organization of the individual teacher.
