3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I am currently in high school and taking dual enrollment college classes. It is very convenient, my high school is in the same building as the college. I get credit for my Associate's Degree and also my High School Diploma with the same class. My professors are very flexible, I will be bringing a German Exchange student to my classes for the month of April with their approval. I will be transferring to U of M Dearborn in the fall and they will accept all but a few of my 60 credits I have earned at Jackson Community College.

3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: It really depends on what teacher you have. Some don't care about excuses what so ever, and some teachers are really understanding.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Staff hard works to make transferring easy. Credits transfer to most other colleges.

2 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The teaching faculty either genuinely cares about your success as a student or they just show up for the paycheck. There is no in between. The advisers are the same way. Rarely have I gone to the advisers for anything because they have attitudes and treat me as a hassle. I have had multiple classes cancelled two days before the semester started due to "lack of an instructor", which sent me into a panic trying to redo my entire schedule with little to no help from the faculty. I can't wait to transfer to a real college.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: In my few years, I've never come across some kind of crossroads with the admin or the teaching staff in terms of academics. Teachers are always seeming to go the extra mile to help you, should you really need it.
