4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: It is what you make out of it. It is a community college so a lot of times people go in just for class and leave right after class is done. This leads to very boring and tasking. But IF you come and stay there are a lot of clubs and we have a great fitness center and big events that are pretty fun that make the dull moments of class feel lighter and fun. It depends on how much you want to get out it.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have taken a general English class three times now because it did not transfer but that is my only complaint.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I enrolled in the nursing program already having an advanced degree. This caused a little problem with fulfilling my prerequisites because the school does not offer all of the science classes I have taken. The dean had to write emails to other deans to get permission to accept my credits as equivalents for the credits required. Was a pain but did eventually get done in time.

Academic Flexibility: Although there are not as many classes available as other schools I know of, they have enough to allow me to do what I came here for. I came to see what I am interested in and what kind of path I'd like to go down. I have taken a variety of different classes, some I found interesting and others I did not. However, of my two semesters at Corning Community College, I have only found one teacher that I haven't quite gotten along with. And I think it was all just a misunderstanding. As for all of my other teachers, they have been so great and helpful with any questions I had. My calculus teacher stayed until 1130 many nights to help other students in my class! Its location might not be the best up in the hills, but it is a very good school that someone should be proud to attend.

Academic Flexibility: Most professors have many times in which they are available to talk one on one with their students

For each class, generally there are many different times to take a course. This makes working or having another commitment while going to school very easy—or at least easier. Most classes don't require too much homework on a daily basis, and all deadlines for projects and papers are reasonable. If something major comes up, the professors and administration are very helpful in finding a solution that fits you.

Taking online or hybrid classes allows for more flexibility, making them very helpful for students who also work or have a family.

Tips for Earning Credits
Do all of the work; skipping assignments will make it harder for you later!
Academic/Testing Requirements
CCC requires a high school diploma or GED (General Equivalency Diploma). Students can work toward a GED while taking CCC classes, but the College does not offer a GED program. Applications of students who do not have a high school diploma or a GED will be reviewed by the director of Recruitment and Marketing Services. Placement testing is used in computer skills, English, and math. All of these are required, unless the student has taken ACE (Accelerated College Education) courses or similar cases. The required computer skills test can be taken online at any computer, but it must be taken-no exceptions. If you get below a certain grade, you will be placed in lower-level basic computer knowledge classes.
Transferring Credits In & Out
The credits transfer in and out easily. There may be a few minor issues, but overall there is little to no trouble.
Work & Life Experience Credits
Corning does offer work and life experience credits. You don't hear about them much, so they cannot be very common, but they do exist! Your best bet would be to ask Admissions about it.
Typical Session Length
Some classes last five weeks (typically .5 credit classes), some last 10 weeks, but most last 14 weeks (the whole semester).
Class Style & Structure
The class style varies a bit from class to class. Some are lecture, some are lecture and online (hybrid), and some are only online.
Course Registration Process
To register, you can add classes yourself online, or you can see your academic adviser for help.
Did You Know?
Art and music classes will not transfer to other schools, but they are very popular and can really help you meet new people!
