I have pleased overall with my experience at Aiken Tech. The only issue I have has been with grading. I know professors are very busy, but sometimes I believe it takes a little long to receive your grades. Normally it is not a big deal, but at the end of the semester, it would be nice to know where you stand going into the final. The only other issue I have had, is that in one of my classes, the professor has been late several times, and on three occasions students had to wait an hour for the lab practical exam to be set up.

I really had a hard time trying to get ahold of someone when I was recooperating from surgery in the Summer of 2010 and at the time I was unable to drive to the school so therefore when I finally got to feeling better my paperwork was behind. I had to fight tooth and nail to get any answers. It is very frustrating because I sent several emails and I didnt get any replies. Therefore, when school started I had an assignment due that first thursday and wasnt able to get a textbook because I didnt have the money so I started off on the wrong foot. After going in the financial aid office everyday my financial aid finally went through.
The thing I am really upset about is the way Aiken Tech. is recruiting students from outside Aiken Tech. and not taking into consideration that (I feel) they should be catering more to the students they have at ATC. There are several students I know that are transferring out of ATC because we have so many outside ATC that are coming in and somehow have extremely high points to get in the program. I feel ATC should accept only so many from outside ATC a semester like they do with the students that are LPN's bridging over to RN. They only except, I believe, 7 each enroll time and I feel they need to accept majority from ATC in the program than they do outsiders. I hate to say it but it looks like a money issue because out of state students have to pay more. This is one reason why I'm not afraid to transfer to a different school because it almost seems like I might be waiting a long long time to get in the program than I should have to wait.

I have Aiken Tech to be very flexible. There are a variety of different types of classes such as in class, online, or hybrid. They also offer lots of night classes. This has been very accommodating for me, because I can only attend at night. I would have given an A+ except that there are some classes that are only offered in the spring or fall semesters. That can make it challenging to stay on track with your degree plan.
