5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Great flexibility! If you want it, they are sure to have it!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far the ease of taking courses and using the online tutor system is great!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They have every course I needed to transfer. Very well rounded academic choices.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In my blackboard there is a tab for careers, I have not gone there because I will be transferring.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The online courses fit any schedule. The IT department responds to issues in a very timely manor. I have been doing classes online for a year and had one issue with the course, and that was resolved within 24 hours.

College Sophomore

Student Body: Since my courses are online I only interact with them in the discussion board.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: They pointed me to a place where I could get help with my FAFSA, and get it filled out for free. Then I logged in, clicked accept award, and was done!

College Sophomore

Career Services: I have no had to use any of these, and will not because I am a transfer student.

College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am transferring in the Fall if I can, right now I am getting all the classes I do not need for my major out of the way.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: You can take mini-semester classes, online courses and weekend courses to get your classes done anyway that fits your schedule.

College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I have three small children, so I go to school online only to avoid childcare costs, therefor I do not use the resources on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Some of my classes did not transfer as intended from other universities to here but I will have no issues transferring from Calhoun to my last college. Convenience this year was a hassle but really just because of all the construction and bad weather.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers are great, the classes are easy, but the facilities are awful. I would choose to go here again.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really have had some of the best teachers I've ever had here. They have been very helpful and interested in my academic success. Most are very thoughtful and will work with your schedule. All the academic help I have wanted has been there, you just have to show interest.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would not think a degree from a junior college would mean much so I definitely recommend transferring after getting your core classes done. There are plenty or employers recruiting on campus but they are no one you would want a career with (Jimmy John's and Verizon, mostly). I have never checked out the career services on campus and have never seen any advertised so I'm not sure they exist. There are no internship prospects that I know of.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have never taken an online course through Calhoun so I don't know much about them. I do know friends that have taken them and they seem moderately pleased with them. I don't believe they have truly retained much from them though and would not recommend them.

2 College Sophomore

Student Body: Most students here during the day are straight out of highschool or are still in highschool. Most don't care to be there and put minimal effort into their studies. The only benefit of this is that it's not hard to shine here if you are a half decent student. At night it is mostly adults. Both groups tend to not be interested in socializing on campus (there's nothing to do there anyways so I can't blame them) so interactions are minimal.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition at Calhoun is very affordable. Also, financial aid is offered if you need it. They offer payment plans so you don't have to pay the whole amount up front. At a junior college like this, I would recommend taking advantage of the Pell Grant if you have financial need and if not then using the payment plans and not worrying about financial aid if possible. Save your financial aid for the school that you transfer to as it will be more expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: General studies at Calhoun is as expected - nothing special. My intended major is Psychology but I have yet to talk to an advisor who could give me any specific advice as far as classes go for my major. All of my academic career help has come from my Psychology teacher, Sara Sayle, who has been a tremendous asset. She has advised me in class options and career paths and has taken a personal interest in my success.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The academics offered at Calhoun are basic to any education path and also include a few specialized courses. Registration is easy, though it being a small school there are not many times available for each class. There are a lot of night classes offered, which is not personally helpful to me but I am glad they are there for other students. The workload is very light and seems to be graded soft and I sometimes worry that I am not being prepared for the workload of a larger university.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Calhoun Community College has the worst and mostly non-existent student resources I have seen at a college. The physical library is very small and the online library lacks many academic journals that I am interested in. The bathrooms are terrible; there are no counters or place to set books and bags while using the facilities and they are always dirty, clogged, and out of paper or soap. The student center is too small and lacks enough seating to accommodate student needs. The only positive experience I have had at Calhoun has been the teachers. Almost all of my teachers have been very effective, intelligent, and caring.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Compared to many community colleges located in north Alabama Calhoun is one of the cheapest. You are getting your monies worth.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I am attending a small community college. The college doesn't have much of a selection of places to have lunch. Just various vending machines, and the Subway restaurant across the street. As far as the student center goes, SOME of the advisers to me are not very knowledgeable about different majors, or student activities.There are in my opinion very few student activities available to students unless one is in chorale, band, theater or play a sport.

Online Courses: I am currently taking one online class. Orientation to College. This class to me is mostly a lot of redundant information that I've been told my entire high school career. Honestly, to me it is a waste of time. I have learned only a few different things that I feel will be beneficial to me later on in life.

Academic Experience: With the school I am enrolled in now, you have to actually apply to the program I am trying to get into. (Physical Therapist Assistant AAS). But as far as the "pre" classes I have to take the workload isn't that bad.
