I've enjoyed both the online and in person courses I've taken. However, there is a large gap in difficulty between professors sometimes. I had a situation where I got a D in an Astronomy class because due to horrible luck I couldn't make it to the final test and the teacher wouldn't allow for a retake, so I had to retake the course again with a different teacher and found that the workloads between teachers varied significantly. So it is important to look into which professor you choose when registering for courses!

I am very pleased with the the quality of education I am receiving for the cost. I had never attended a community college prior to attending Arapahoe Community College. I have been pleased with what I have received. As a single divorced mom in her 40's I was intimidated about returning to college. The school was more than willing to help advise me on how to proceed with my desire to gain admission to their Nursing program, what it would cost and how to use the financial aid department to help apply for benefits. They were also very helpful in making sure I met the deadline for subsequent years by sending reminders to my email address. I am thrilled with the teachers in my area of study. I feel that everyone at ACC is willing to help you succeed and wants you to succeed. I encourage anyone curious about financial aid to stop by that department and schedule an appointment with one of the advisors. Make a list of questions you might have to make your meeting more productive and most of all don't be scared! They are there to help.

My overall experience at the school is great. It offers many opportunities within all degrees. I also enjoy the student population, as well as, the friendliness of my professors. I would recommend ACC to many people. I also have a lot of friends who attend Arapahoe Community College and love it. ACC the place to be!
