3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My instructors have been knowledgeable and I have enjoyed my classes so far.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I start my first online course this spring semester 2016. I believe it will give me more knowledge on how to use computers easier than before.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: They work with you and help you to graduate.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoyed most of my classes but of course there are some challenges. I tried my hardest and passed all my classes.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There's not many people that do career prospects but I don't talk to many people to know if there are.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I was able to transfer my english 101 credit from another community college & I was able to get 15 college credits from 5 AP exams that I got a 3 or higher on, some of which covered degree requirements. So i started out at Allegany with 18 credit hours.

Class times are flexible. I choose to have a tuesday thursday schedule. Some of my classes are online and I usually have at least one night class. They also have a summer semester with an A term and B term.

I have had no frustrations.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: The online classes I have taken are all through Pearson. I enjoy it, except some of the features like the study plan are stupid and can be a waste of time if your professor makes you do them. The workload and registration is not a problem and the professors will help you if things go wrong. Pearson's online courses, that I have taken, don't really allow interaction with a class. It's more individualistic, which is great for people who need flexibility.

5 College Senior

Career Services: The staff is super friendly.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: For what I'm paying, I can't complain. The proffessors are qualified and the selection of courses is very flexible.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It depends on your major. Internship opportunites are probably much better if you are in the medical, science, and tech fields.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: It's what you expect from a community college. The staff for the most part is really qualified. In fact, some also teach at Frostburg Univeristy, which is only 15 minutes away. I'm studying political science, and while the school doesn't provide a whole lot of polisci courses, it does offer a few economics courses that are great to tie into your major. The workload isn't too heavy, of course it all depends on how you manage your time. Also, you have opportunities to take many classes online if you prefer that.

The campus isn't fancy with lots of new buildings, however, the campus is maintained, renovated, and pleasing to be on. More importantly though, it is surrounded by a lot of natural beauty of Appalachia.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is amazing on the budget, and even has dorms for those who want dorm-life at a community college. The admissions process is very simple- the school even gives college credit for AP exams, which got me a semester ahead in college! Now Allegany is a community college, so a lot of people are not super-social and only stay on the campus for classes, however, there are some clubs and organizations that you can join- and probably should if you want to meet people! Allegany is unique because it has some of the pros of a 4 year institute (Dorms, mutliple campuses, etc.), but it has the price of a community college. Not to mention, it is beautifully nestled in the mountains and is nearby all social activities in Cumberland, MD. Also, if you're really craving a good party, Frostburg University is only 15 minutes away.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Allegany county is the best I think. They have a great campus and on this campus are so many opportunities just waiting for people to take them. There are 30 plus countries represented and do everyone fits in, all ages go here and all fit in. The staff in all departments that I have came across have all been open and knowledgable about their topic and they are more than ready to help you.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have 7 kids all together and 5 are still at home. I clean houses to try and help pay for my gas for school. The school has been able to work around my schedule. And hey have made sure if I needed help they got me the help I wanted.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: Online classes are different because you do everything yourself. But the staff is there to help along the way. The programs that are used makes the work easy to submit you can ask questions, have a discussion board so you can even chat with the other students online.

5 College Senior

Career Services: I feel that since they have made sure I have everything I need so far, they have been more than ready to get my internship and then help me with job placement.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Courses and professors at Allegany are awesome. I have learned so much. Not just about book stuff but life stuff and about myself. The professors want you to do well. They will answer questions, answer emails and meet with students who are struggling. They have tutoring, clubs, programs all in place to help students succeed.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Allegany offers internships, they are affiliated with many different places of business right in Cumberland area so there is lots of opportunities for internships and jobs.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am going for my certificate and a degree at one time. I have 5 kids at home so the school has been wonderful. The program that I am in has staff that knows their topics and will help you through the class with confidence. The classrooms have all the equipment that you could practice with and learn just how things are done. He facility is clean and ready for whatever we need to accomplish daily. Our workload keeps us striving to learn and grow. They offer internships and job placement assistants as you start to complete your program.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love Allegany College. I am a nontraditional student and they have helped me achieve so much more than I ever thought possible. But they do that with each student. The staff at the school seems to really care if the students do well. Which makes the students want to work hard and get through things without giving up.
