4 College Junior

Facilities: The ASB is very involved the students & keeping the college a happy place.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I was always apprehensive about taking an online course, just because I knew my instructor wouldn't be available in person to help me work through homework, but to my surprise it was rather easy to understand the criteria & my instructors got back to me in a generous amount of time.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Personally I think they should change their questions to determine whether you are independent or not. According to financial aid, because I am not married, homeless, the age of 26, or in foster care, I am not independent. Because of that in order to be eligible for a pell grant, they must go off of my mother's income. I live on my own, pay my own bills, and depend on nobody, but myself. My mother & her new husband made too much money this year so I am not eligible for a grant & their "expected family contribution" is $11,000, which I wont be getting a dime of from my mother. Therefore I feel they should change how they look at dependents & independents and how it affects students and their ability to afford college.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am the only person in Colville that is getting a degree in health & fitness technician, I have to learn the human body in depth like a student would for going into nursing. I had to take anatomy & physiology 1 & 2. I will eventually have to take kinetics.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Unfortunately not all the classes for my degree are available here at the Colville campus, so in order to finish my degree I must transfer to the SFCC in Spokane & move to Spokane.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There is always a librarian to help you with copies, connecting your personal computer & you are allowed to print as many pages as long as it pertains to school

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There is a student support center, that you can go to from homework, to applications to loans, they are very nice & offer as much knowledge as possible.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I love taking Spokane Falls Community College online courses because it is very convenient for me. I am able to get onto their online course website, Canvas, whenever I want to. Most teachers allow the student to see future assignments. Most online courses have due dates for each assignment and they are typically on the same days every week. This creates an easy schedule for me to get use to. I might be spending more time on the workload than I would in an on-campus course, but it's because I have to teach the course to myself instead of having a teacher teach me. There is a lot of peer-to-peer interaction with discussion boards, but not a lot of interaction with the professor and students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had the best experience at school. I am in the middle of my second quarter and I couldn't be happier. All of the teachers I have had so far have been very helpful. I have learned lots of new things and have a GPS of 3.65. I am very excited to be in school and I can not wait to graduate for the sake of my children's future.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The one thing that I believe to be unique would be there beautiful scenery.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I love the major I am in. All of the business teachers are very helpful. I seem to always get the right amount of homework and I always have my homework done.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Registration can sometimes be hard. If you don't register right when registration starts then you lose out on the chance of a class. Other than that, everything at my school is perfect. I love it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The campus resources at my school are all convenient. They have the library that anybody can use. They have a business technology lab that is open to BT students and they also have a math lab.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: All of the resources on campus are about the same. I don't use allot of them but that is because I mainly go to campus to attend class, but when I do need to use a resource it never is a problem. I usually get done very fast.

Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC) is a great school for commuters or for those who just want the basic education and to then be done. Overall, SFCC has its positive and negative elements, just like any school, but it has many problems in the counseling and financial aid departments; these offices are anything but seamless, nor are they easy to get what you need with an initial quick-visit contact. While resolving any issues regarding your academics, be prepared to be inconvenienced. The school provides little support to students in most every way, as the College isn't very helpful as a guiding force in students' career search. Instead, the responsibility is mostly on the student.

There are people who have had a successful experience at this school, and others that have not; it differs based on how well the student is proactive in his or her own education and learning. The College has a reputation for being the first stop for high school graduates or for those seeking a certification in a particular program. Like any school, make sure that you have a very detailed plan of what you want to do with your education so that you can remain focused on your goal while attending SFCC.
