3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The only bad experience that I have had is that I had a course cancelled less than a week before it was supposed to start and was unable to get into another class to fill the slot.

College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have not started school yet.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Yet again with this not being the main campus it does make the class choices much harder, this being because we don't have a lot of class rooms compared to the amount of class that are held. It would be nice with they were able to have at least two different time periods for some classes. For an example my Physics II class next semester there is only one slot and its a hard time for me to get there.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have had a wonderful experience with the staff here. I feel that they really go out of their way to make sure my needs are met and that I understand what is going on. I have had people go above-and-beyond for me here and I appreciate it. SMCC transferred credits I needed to apply toward my Associate's degree and they have a form where you can see exactly which classes transferred to meet which degree requirements. Because of this, I am graduating much sooner than I expected. When registering for classes, I always see a night option (or many) available and I think this school must be great for working students.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I was able to take classes around my work so I'm able to keep an income while earning my degree. I've heard it's easy to transfer credits within the state of Maine. I plan on going to the University of Maine in Orono for Pre-Vet. I hope all my credits transfer (I'm pretty much counting on it).
