Academic Flexibility


{{ error }}
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.

Academic Flexibility: applying and transferring my credits was pretty easy. it because i was already attending another community college in Maryland so it was easier

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.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Because of the relatively small size of the school, it is very easy to work closely with instructors to make the experience the most successful possible. The entire staff at the school are very aware that many students come from non-traditional backgrounds and may have children or be working around an illness, so they are willing to work with the student to plan for success by being flexible or suggesting the student wait another semester or so to have the most effective experience.
