College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have not attended an online course in this institution. I very much prefer the experience of a classroom and a teacher teaching me. I love to be involved in activities with others and gain insight each professor's experience. I learn better with in-class teaching.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I work alongside attending school. The classes offered at Mt. Sierra have been flexible around my school schedule. The frustrations I have encountered have been the purchase of application software and a laptop. I was able to save for an application software, but the laptop is another item I need to save money as well, but my school schedule allows for more work hours and more pay to save on the side. Before registering for classes, my academic advisor always asks what days I'm available beforehand.
Transferring credits was time consuming for the school staff, because I had taken numerous classes at Mt. Sac and Art Center's night program. However, the process was not long for them to squeeze me in on time and register for classes. I was rather late in applying for the school as it was not in my plan to come across this school at the time. They did all they could (going back and forth between each other hysterically) to ensure I was admitted to the school.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Diversity is the definition of this school. Students of different ethnic backgrounds, social classes, etc. attend this institution. Majority of the student body who attend are either in the Game Arts or Graphic Arts and those are the students with high energy. Everyone is accepting and respectful toward each other's opinion from what I have seen. Students subconsciously help one another out regarding expenses. They share information of affordable locations and empathize when a student requires help. Within the classroom, students cooperate with one another satisfyingly.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process is thorough. They hand you an outline of your expenses per academic year per quarter of each area such as materials, tuition, etc. They reveal the types of financial aid used to pay for the previous items. They also explain how the financial aid office works and are always open to explain misunderstandings.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience is satisfactory. I do feel that I'm receiving the proper education for a successful career. My school is unique in its staff who are social, optimistic, and dedicated to its students. They are willing to sit with you and chit chat over coffee and constantly ask of your well being within your classes. They help those to be open socially and welcome new, productive ideas.
My favorite experience was when my the head of the arts department pulled me out of class to help me with my issue regarding the lack of a laptop and prompted my academic and financial advisor to help me find financial opportunities (hence this sight) and revise my schedule to fit my situation. I was given new classes where laptops were not required, and time was granted for me to save up for the next quarter to afford my laptop.
I would definitely choose this school if given the chance to start over.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Their courses are different than Mt. Sac's. I had previously taken a Digital Imaging class at Mt. Sac, but it was not sufficient in teaching me enough of Photoshop. Taking that class here at Mt. Sierra taught me a great deal, and it was only a level I class. The professors in arts department are an enthusiastic and creative bunch. They are entertaining and professional with their work. They are also insightful and strive to improve students by critique and optimism.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Registering at this school was very easy. The admissions adviser explained everything thoroughly and guided me through everything with patience.
The professors, from my experience, have been outstanding. They are knowledgeable and insightful. They ensure themselves to know your weaknesses, your strengths, and give you plenty of feedback for you to improve. The skills they teach are legitimate and are the skills necessary for your career. Furthermore, their attitudes (as well as the rest of the staff of Mt. Sierra) are optimistic and enthusiastic, making learning all the more exciting, leaving one eager to learn more, and creating a comfortable environment at the school overall.
Also, for students who struggle in their classes, tutoring services are offered for free as well as access to labs. If you cannot access a professor, the head of the department would be willing to assist you at times as well.
In addition, once students graduate, they are granted access to free workshops within their department or repeat a course they feel they need further refinement. If a new version of Photoshop of Microsoft Office, for example, is released, the school will offer graduate students free workshops to familiarize themselves with the latest programs.
Furthermore, the workload at this school is abundant and effective for one to learn and withhold the material. Quizzes, in class activities, required participation, and numerous creative projects are given to students.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: The career center is always accessible and they constantly email newsletters on job postings among various companies. They also help students to create their portfolios and prepare them for job interviews.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The library and its services is great and always accessible to students. When you need help, someone is always there to assist you with whatever you need. This fact also applies to the student center, career services, and administration.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I don't own a laptop, but several students have issues regarding internet access. It's average in speed, but students are able to do what is required of them. The overall school network is average. 4 times out of 10 professors have issues accessing their files on the school's server or accessing a certain website for their lecture.
