4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Sometimes my work gets in the way of my studying. I work late night shifts and I really hate being late for school or completely sleepy in most of my class because of work. But the during the times I'm fully awake I really enjoy my school and what it has to offer.

Tuition & Financial Aid: First things first, I'm thankful my classes are paid for. But I don't receive any aid to help me pay for my textbook fees. I thought being a full time student would allow me to receive financial aid to pay for books. But i never received any money to pay for books. Therefore I have not rating to give.

2 College Freshman

Student Body: I feel like they don't do anything.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: Im taking political science online and I think taking this class online made my current schedule much more flexible.

College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I won't be able to transfer this year due to the fact that I can't get the classes I need.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Being an engineering major sort of sucks here at pcc. The facilities are not that great, especially the labs.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm an engineering major and it kind of sucks having that major at pcc because the physics department sucks, I have a late registration dates due to the fact that I'm out of district, and the CS department sucks as well because they have mediocre instructors. The math department is great. I'v had the some of the best teachers, which in the end sort of makes up for the other flaws. All in all had I not been given such a late registration date I definitely would have transferred earlier.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I've been lucky to have scored the best math teachers. However I cannot say that about the rest of the teachers I've had.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think it is fine for the most part. Although the financial aid staff can be rude at times.

College Freshman

Online Courses: I will not be taking any online courses.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The science professors, the math professors, and English professors are the reasons why this PCC will always take your education level higher and higher;)

3 College Senior

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Very calm and nice environment. Many clubs with nice and involving activities.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: You can work at your own pace and have more time to finish work. It is necessary to have at least basic computer knowledge, if you do it manageable to do work. Easy to communicate with professor, and other students.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: The career center can offer information from any school. Many students transfer and become alumni network that we might be able to contact for information if available.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are many classes to chose from, stadium is available for anyone, there are many clubs, library opens early and closes late. there are campus events that sometimes offer free stuff, there are movie nights with free food, relaxation things or pets during finals. There are different places to buy food with places to sit.

3 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: There are many classes to chose from you can chose what works for you however classes get full fast.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Depending on your situation you may qualify for financial aid or waivers that can help pay for classes but might not cover other expenses such as books and transportation. There are some scholarships available.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The pre-requisites available at this school are great in numbers but it was difficult to obtain at first as a freshman. The workload was manageable and curriculum was useful in the actual nursing program. The nursing program at PCC is constantly evolving to meet demands of the BRN and this can lead to some disorganization and require great flexibility on the schedules of the students. The program was moved to an off-campus site which is good considering the amount of traffic and number of students on the main campus. However, the insufficient numbers of computers available for the students in the program for test taking requires us to travel back and forth between the main campus and the off-campus sites for use of the computer labs on the main campus. Other than that, it is a great learning experience with the faculty and there are more opportunities being made available for the students who hope to transfer and continue their educations.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The class registration process has improved substantially within the past 2 years. it only takes some getting used to of the new registration website, Lancer Point.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I am currently in the nursing program in PCC and we are adjusting to computerizing some of our assignments and tests to meet the demands out on the working field. This is not a bad thing at all; this will help us develop the skills needed to take the NCLEX-RN once we graduate as well as learn how to use Cerner for hospital medical charting. I think that this will give the students an advantage skills wise when looking for work after we have graduated.
