3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm very disappointed that their religious studies do not cover more than Christianity. This isn't helpful to me.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I wish there were more of a variety in course options. I also wish there were more quiet areas indoors or shady areas outdoors for studying.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is my first semester here. During my application process I was unimpressed. However, since attending my classes I have been pleasantly surprised. The majority of the staff do seem to care about their students, and they seem to view us more as equals which makes them more approachable when you need help with something. I am attending this school purely because my husband is stationed at the Naval Hospital, so I can't say that I would choose this school over another, given the choice. However, it isn't the worst place to be.

3 College Student

Student Body: There's not some insane amount of school spirit here, you don't see people walking around with school sweatshirts. It is a rather diverse student body just because of the kind of people that live in this area. There are two major Marine bases that are rather close to the campus so many people stationed here attend the school and they are a wide mix from all walks of life.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: Everything about the school is overall easy and convenient. For me it is more of a stepping stone to another school. Nothing is really difficult and the faculty is very helpful.

College Student

Career Services: I haven't used any post-grad services. I am still working on my bachelors and will be leaving the school. I haven't found the need to use their career center.

3 College Student

Facilities: There's really nothing special about the school. It's not some famous state school or anything. To me it seems most people who are attending this school are doing so while they are stationed on one of the local bases or they are family members of those who are stationed here. It seems to be just a school that many attend because it's there and they're using it to get to another school in the future. It's not very big and the general aesthetic appeal of the school is nothing special.

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of classes are really based on the person. I work different hours every day and sometimes weekends so I stuck with online classes. For each class I took you just had to do the assignment once a week, which was usually due no later than Sunday before midnight. Even when I did miss an assignment or test, I was usually able to work it out with the teacher if I gave her a notice in advance that I would most likely not be able to complete a test or assignment on time. Even when something came up last minute that wasn't just me forgetting about school, I was able to explain myself and they were extremely helpful.

4 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: The price per semester hour seems very reasonable to me. The financial aid office seemed to handle all of my financial aid rather quickly which was surprising just because it seems as if there are a lot of students attending this college both on campus and online so they must be rather busy right before the semester starts. You shouldn't wait until the last minute, but if there is a hiccup they will work with you to sort out your financial aid in time to start classes.

3 College Student

Online Courses: The first online class I took through CCCC was okay. It was practically out of the book and I didn't learn too much. It didn't seem as if the teacher personalized the course and was therefore somewhat bland. The second class I took was much better because there was a lot of peer-to-peer interaction so it almost had the feeling of being inside a classroom with the convenience of doing it on your own time online

4 College Student

Facilities: Even though Coastal is a community college, the academic staff are great. They strive to have each and every student succeed.

4 College Student

Campus Resources: Because of the diverse environment of the marine corps, this college offers many learning resources to students who have different learning styles.

4 College Student

Campus Resources: I am able to have access to internet almost in every building of the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: not applicable at this time

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Think financial aid should be available for a wider range of people and situations.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Im not sure since this upcoming semester will be my first.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If I could do it all over again, I would have applied from the get-go and stayed at Coastal the entire time. I am an adult learner who got caught up in the university scene, spending way too much money on tuition and accruing debt until I had to withdraw. All the while, I could have attended Coastal for the same education at 1/4 of the tuition.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: In all the years that i've attended, I have never been able to charge my books to the bookstore like other students. I have never understood this. You do have to wait 2 weeks after school starts for your PELL, but they are always accurate. Out of stater's: tuition can be ridiculous.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Convenience is awesome. The workload can be overbearing at times; however, the professors give ample notice to projects and assignments.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Would suggest another computer lab. However, the library houses all of the printing, copying, etc… that a student could need. Because students live off campus, the need for computers is not great (but would be a bonus), as they can access computers and other technologies at home.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The library has wonderful resources, and a small computer lab. All that you need for a community college. Could branch out and get another computer lab.

5 College Freshman

Student Body: Jacksonville is considered to be a melting pot of the different races, religions, sexual orientations, and economic standings. Coastal reflects this, and no one makes a big deal out of it!

5 College Freshman

Career Services: Not only do Coastal students enjoy free resume building, interview prep, and job searching/placement, but so does this surrounding community as well. Just another way Coastal pours back into the community. If you don't know what you want to do career-wise, head to the Business Center for a free assessment and they will help you along the way!

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Small community, small college, but great quality education! There are a few extracurricular activities found around campus. Cost for in-state tuition is wonderful! :)

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: There has only been one time since attending that I couldn't get all of the classes that I needed to take. Registration needs to be done online, instead of in person. It takes entirely way too long. Plan to spend a good couple of hours waiting.
