5 College Sophomore

Career Services: West Kentucky Community and Technical college is the best school they have helped me in everything I need and continue to help me without me asking for help

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: A lot of students including myself do not qualify for financial aide. If you don't qualify there are not many options for the ones that need a little extra funds for school.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our school has a very interesting arts section but everything else is kind of just average.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: many times you don't hear back from your instructor in a reasonable manner because you never go to their class.

5 College Student

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility at this school is good and my schedule has always worked well around my personal life.

Academic Experience: WKCTC doesn't hold psychology as a major, which is what I am. I'm able to take psychology classes and classes related to my major, but that's it.

Academic Experience: The academics at this school are great. The professors are very helpful and the curriculum is manageable. The class registration process is easy and the advisors are good at making schedules.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: The schools tuition is affordable when you compare it to other universities. I wasn't able to receive financial aid, so I can't testify to its usage. However, I do wish there were more opportunities to receive scholarships or grants from the campus. Maybe they could hold essay contests or something related to that. I don't get financial aid, but I do need it. Also, the costs of books is through the roof and some classes make you buy extra things. For example, for my art class I had to go out and by art supplies. It's hard to afford things like that when you have to pay 200 dollars for the book.

Overall Experience: My experience here was the absolute best and I would definitely do it all over again. The tuition has been very affordable and the staff have always been willing to help me whenever I need it. College can be scary and starting at WKCTC was the best decision I could have made. It eased me into college life and taught me a lot of lessons I'll need when I transfer to a 4 year college.

Campus Resources: When it comes to resources, this campus is average. The Matheson library is wonderful and the workers are very helpful. Campus activities include Happening Hour where all the students are invited to the student center for whatever activity is happening that day. There is only one athletic center and there's not a lot of equipment inside. It contains a gym and a small room with workout equipment, but I wish there was more. This is one reason why I give it an okay rating it this area.

Campus Resources: There are lots of computer labs at WKCTC and they're very accessible. If you're looking for one, you're sure to find it. When it comes to printing, you're allowed 400 free sheets of paper and after that, you have to pay. The connection for this campus isn't the greatest and that's what I gave it a great rating. It's not always the most reliable and it goes in and out, especially with Blackboard.

3 College Student

Facilities: WKCTC is a great, affordable school and it has a good environment. However, it's not like huge universities. There's a lot of grass, but there's no architecture outside. There's plenty of study spots, though and the student center is amazing. I love the cafe's on campus as well. When talking about academic programs, they have their fair share. For example, they have a program called Trio which is a free tutoring program. Not only that, they help with advising. Over all, this school is full of opportunities and it's a great place to start your college education.

4 College Student

Online Courses: My online classes are and have been very informative. They're easy to use and the professors have always been willing to help me if I have trouble. There's a greater sense of responsibility with online classes because it's up to you to get your work done on time. However, this has never been a problem for me and I prefer it that way. Over all, I loved all my online classes.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed getting cheaper schooling but I need to still get a higher degree at a different college. Hopefully going to this college will better me in the long run.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Some of the classes I am taking will not transfer. It has been difficult finding a college that will accept my classes that I have taken already.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The basketball gym is very old. The library does not have a wide selection of books. There are multiple computer labs which make it easier to do online assignments. The student center is alright.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Blackboard is usually up and running but you may have some days where the system is just completely down over the weekend to be repaired and you're just out of luck with Blackboard assignments. Some teachers have been frustrated with Blackboard as well.

2 College Senior

Student Body: There is a select handful of people that are at my college for a purpose. Some people choose to just get their financial aid checks and show up in order to receive them to pay for other things besides school. It really frustrates me to see so many people get free money to pay for college who don't even really care about earning a degree and yet I am the one struggling to pay for my college fees and I want to get a degree so badly.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I have had to take three classes over because I was unable to pass two and the third one I was unable to finish. It has been difficult but this last semester I am ready to push through to the end.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The programs offered at my school are a wide range. There are many possible opportunities to help you reach your goals.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My parents make a high income and getting help with financial aid didn't work. I got offered unsubsidized loans and now I have acquired a student loan debt. I need help in finding scholarships to help me pay for my tuition and books.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: Online courses have been very helpful in helping me reach my associates degree. The teachers have been understanding if I miss a quiz or turn in late homework.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: My schedule has worked around my work schedule. My teachers have been very prompt with emailing me back and helping me receive information that I may need.

3 College Senior

Facilities: My school is a community college that provides many options for career choices. The faculty and staff at my college are very nice and have been helpful. The library is very small and there is not much of a selection of books. We have to order books from other campuses in order to do research.
