4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: For professors, they want students to come to their office hours if you need help or want to look for opportunities. Also take notes so may have PowerPoints that can be printed out and take the class the next day.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: For next semester, I really wanted to have all my classes on MWF like i had in freshman year; but the class i really need for my major has to be on TR. I wanted to have at least two days off from school work.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Its a small environment but it packs a punch.

College Freshman

Career Services: im really not sure about this one

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everything you need is on campus

4 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: I've only had experience with reduced prices because of parallel enrollment and state grants, so I have mainly gone to school for free.

4 College Senior

Facilities: love the school atmosphere. great student and teacher communication. I just love that I m comfortable at my school.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: The career center and online job help are very good.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, my experience has been awesome and I can't wait to get into my core classes.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am paying out of pocket right now, but the payment options online and through payment plans are very simple and accessible.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I love the campus library database. They have all types of resources for writing a paper and doing research. Plus the librarians are always available to help.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I don't like that printing is not included in our tuition and the printing labs can be a bit confusing to some, but other than that is very quick and reliable (if you can find an available computer).

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I am not able to spend that much time with students outside of classrooms because of work

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Because of my work schedule, I can't comment on social activities at the school. However, they do offer a huge variety of community activities. The facilities are for the most part average, but the library is amazing and very modernized.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Not my cup of tea, but online courses do come in handy when my schedule is too busy for face to face.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Overall I'd say my experience has been really great. I am passing my class because my professor is available and is able to communicate the material in a very understandable way. The variety of classes offered at different times and across 3 or more different campuses and locations make it easier for me to take courses without them conflicting with my work schedule, which can be very hectic. My only woe would be applying through fafsa for aid, but that's fafsa not ccbc. Also, The advisor hours made it so easy to transfer my credits because they are open to 7pm on most days.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The application process is super quick and easy. The advisor hours are very accomadating to a full time working adult and for my intended major (Nursing) they even have weekend and evening coursework. The school's tuition is reasonably priced. I have found other community colleges to be a tad bit cheaper when it comes to credit and lab fees, but the trade off is the hassle and extra (unnecessary) coursework. CCBC streamlines you for your career set up.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are a wide array of professors, non credit, and credit courses available at CCBC. The school offers several certification courses in health, auto, IT, legal services, and the list goes on. Also, CCBC has made itself available to the community as a whole by offering non credit classes to seniors, children, and teens. My only issue is that it can be difficult to get in touch with adjunct faculty, but regular professors are easier to catch up with. The class registration process is very simple and straightforward. Especially now that they have revamped the registration page to make it easier to find. CCBC is dedicated to the sucess of their students as they offer recitation courses for the heavier work load classes and their are study and writing centers.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school's tuition is really expensive, plus the ridiculously overpriced textbooks/manuals, codes..etc. I think I'm not getting my money's worth because printing should be included in the tuition as well as parking. There should be a change in the prices of the overpriced textbooks.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It's community college, so it doesn't have everything compared to a university, but it has it few flaws and few strengths. The flaws are, more study spots, better food options, overpriced books, class selections, and much more. The few strengths would be the writing center, the liability of the library, faculty staff always ready to help you.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is pretty apathetic. I find myself overachieving just because I raise my hand. I do wish I was surrounded by more opinionated, insightful people.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, my CCBC experience has been great. It's the best option if you don't know what you want to do or can't afford a 4 year. The campus isn't always very energetic, but the teachers make up for that. Honors program is also a great option if you need to be a little more challenged. Advising is not good.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: There aren't a lot of activities or clubs on campus. The library is dated and the "cyber cafe" isn't very cyber friendly. If I study on campus, it's usually in my car.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There aren't printing labs in every building but they have one in one building. Wireless is great and reliable! Printing is free.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My department head has been so accommodating with advising me. He also runs an internship program.

Even though it's a two-year school, the Community College of Baltimore County still packs a four-year punch in terms of everything it provides. Student life activities are planned by the season, with athletics, events, and clubs and organizations that are top-notch. Any student can choose to be a Greek member, Black Student Union correspondent, or MVP for the CCBC basketball league.

Aside from the student life aspect, CCBC makes academics its top priority. All professors have a different way of teaching; however, they are all similar in one aspect—they expect a lot from their students. No one said that college-level courses would be easy, and the professors at CCBC make sure that students earn their grades (whether it's an A or a D). To make the Dean's List at the end of each semester, a student must earn a GPA of 3.5 or higher while taking at least 12 credits without earning a D or F during that time. To be a part of the Honors Program, a student must complete 15 honors credits and earn an overall GPA of 3.5 or better. For students who struggle with school, CCBC provides tutoring resources to help students try to achieve Dean's List or honors status. With so many opportunities and support, there's no excuse not to get the most out of this college, but it's really up to the student. The future is in his or her hands.
