This school was horrible for me from day 1. First, they lost my transcripts & tried to tell me I never turned them in. After pressing the issue, they found them underneath a stack of other students paperwork. After that issued was resolved, I was in a class & they pulled me out of that class because I was "over-qualified" & put me in another class. I completed that. Then, when I tried to apply to their ADN program, they denied me because they wanted the class they pulled me out of. Made NO sense & needless to say, I was pissed. So, I went to Coastal & took the 2nd portion of a class & they still wouldn't accept me. Keep in mind, I have every pre-req complete & have a 4.0 gpa. So, I am applying to other surrounding counties schools. I met with another college & after reviewing Carteret's transcript, it is apparent that Carteret has left out a completed class from my transcript which is a deal-breaker for other ADN programs. So, now I get to argue with them more tomorrow. Save your money & go somewhere else! It has been a run-around nightmare with them!

My experience with Carteret Community College has been a great one. They have offered classes that I need, both seated and online. Many of my previous credits transferred toward my current program without difficulty. There were a few that did not initially transfer, but after talking with the counselor, they were allowed and now count toward my required credits. I have found the instructors to be knowledgeable and flexible when emergencies or problems arise.

I have said time and time again, that for a community college to have this much dedication to their online courses is amazing! They offer more online classes than most universities! They are very attentive and you really work for your grade, just as if you were going in to a class. I very much enjoy the teachers. They are very open and available to provide you with any information you need. I very much enjoy online courses at Carteret.
