Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition paid at FSCC is a reasonable rate and I feel as if every penny has been worth it. The financial aid office is always extremely helpful and answer any possible question you may have.

Academic Flexibility: I started my new job about the same time I started attending the school. My work required me to be there at three but that is when my classes got out. The staff at FSCC worked with me and my work.

Student Body: The typical student at my college is hard to describe. At the Fort Scott Miami campus we have kids just out of high school or parents going back to school. We have all kinds of different ethnic groups. The other students seem just as willing as the teachers to look past any differences and give everyone an equal chance.

Academic Experience: AWESOME. This is the best part about my experience at this college! I was freaking out, because I didn't know if I had what it takes to finish the calculus series and become an engineer, but this place really helped put me through! If you are willing to work hard and take advantage of the opportunities you have at this place, you'll learn more stuff than you thought you could. My Calculus instructor in particular was the best possible combination of knowledgeable, professional, helpful, and generous that I've ever, and probably will ever, run across in a teacher. In calc. the notes from lecture were posted on the internet, so you could concentrate on the concepts you were trying to learn at the time, and not on note-taking. And then, the comprehensive notes are still there for you to use on homework on the internet, complete with examples and everything. There is no better worry-free, maximized learning opportunity for any student, and I mean it! My physics and Chemistry instructor were also very professional, yet helpful, although not quite as much as the calc. prof.. I felt like a dud in high school, but if you want to get your rear in gear and make something for yourself at school like I did, this is a good place to do it! The amount of homework assigned per hour in lecture was not at all overburdening, but just enough to incur a certain level of student responsibility and keep learning moving along. Class sizes were small, which made it fun, and easy to make friends.

Campus Resources: The network is pretty reliable. All of the student used computers can save to this universal file that all computers run on, so if a student is using the last computer you were on, you can go to a different one, or even a different lab and continue your saved work. Software for all of the classes online or not are installed, so if you had to, you don't need your own computer to take any classes. wireless is free, fast and easy to access, and every lab has a laser printer networked in. students get the first 10 pages free per day, and every one after that is 10 cents. They also have copy machines student can use. same as above on paper usage. Very, very handy and cheap for students.

Campus Resources: They are small, so they are limited and probably have a limited budget as well, but the faculty and personnel there are absolutely top notch, from my own experience. The free tutoring is nice, the student services department is very helpful and kind, and some of the best professors I will ever have are working there, and small class sizes boost that aspect. I'm not much of a socialite, since my studies have been pretty demanding of me from the start, but there is a student union and a nice fine arts center(they also have xbox360's there in the union, and if you want you can bring your own games and chill there if you've got time). The atmosphere of the place is pretty laid-back and casual, unintimidating, and very nurturing to a student who really wants to learn something and get good grades, and applying for scholarships was easy there (just ask student services for the universal scholarship forum, it's only like 4 pages). My favorite thing, geographically, is that the campus is less than a mile from the town's very nice and sizable park, where sometimes I throw disk golf between classes and chat with friends.

Online Courses: I've not personally started an online course just yet, but my sister just had a few last semester, one of them being college algebra. (There's some bad and some good, so if you're reading this in depth, bear with me to the last part.) Her instructor seemed pretty downright clueless and unhelpful about the content of the course, and it was pretty much and independent study instead of an actual class. When I say the instructor was clueless, I mean like one of the tests wasn't even opened in the online blackboard account until it was almost due, and the instructor didn't even know about it until my sis somehow managed to contact her office. The instructor was also pretty bad at answering emails and student questions. This was the only very rare exception though, as the other five or so online courses went very well and were almost as student friendly as the traditional in-house courses were. Even then, she managed to wrangle an A out of that, er, interesting course, so to properly credit the majority of the good instructors, they still get a B.

Campus Resources: The campus is overall pretty small, but the the quality of the services, faculty, and atmosphere in general I found to be very good. All of the instructors I have had (and I have 55 hrs completed at this point) have been very kind and generous with their time and help. Class sizes are pretty small, like a typical community college. The main academic building has a computer lab right below the library called the MILL (Maximized Learning Lab or something like that) where they offer free tutoring services for lots of classes. They've also got a nice brand-new fine arts center where they teach most of the humanities, and right behind that, there's a park-like walking/running track that's nice to use to relax between exams and finals. Nice campus given the small size constraints. The bookstore, business and student services offices were also very personable and helpful.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The academics offered at Fort Scott are manly general classes you have to have to graduate from college. There are some specialized classes like criminal justice and orchestra.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Fort Scott is a very convenient school. The classes are flexible and the teachers are willing to work with you one on one if you need help.

4 College Senior

Student Body: My school consists of students ranging from the age of 16 to 65. There is a diverse range of students from the rodeo team to the drama club members. Everyone gets along pretty well. The teachers are really good about helping each student succeed in the classes they are in.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: There computer labs are up to date. There printers work most of the time alont with the internet. There computers are vary fast. There has been once that a perfessor lengthened the time on because the internet and email was down.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I like the facilities on campus. Theres a gym they have a new art building. They have a student union, a desent liberary, the teachers have seperate office rooms seperate from there classrooms. There dorms are desent and they have an arena.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: General Education – So far, I've had to take all my Gen Ed classes and theyre all pretty easy. Its exactly what I expected them to be and some are on the course of what I plan to go on and study.
