3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Generally, you have to go to school every weekday for at least one class if you want to do full time which is a little dissapointing. Another frustrating thing is that a lot of classes are offered during the same time block. This means you are forced to choose one instead of taking two or three additional ones that seem fun or that you need for your degree.

Overall Experience: I've had a great time here, and I would come here again if I had to do it all over again.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The fact that the class sizes are so small made my experience here a great one. You never feel like just another student, and teachers for the most part are pretty accessible.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: When I first came to Chemeketa, it was very comforting to find out that there weren't too many hoops to jump though to simply attend college. I feel like universities wouldn't have such a simple entry process.

College Senior

Online Courses: I have yet to take an online course because I feel like I wouldn't do that well in them. I've always preferred face to face because I tend to ask a lot of questions.

4 College Senior

Student Body: The diversity here is pretty amazing. The best part though is that no matter how you are doing in your classes, you can always ask someone to help or get together and study and make friends pretty quickly.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Pretty much the same as any other community college tuition. I wish I would have gotten rewarded just a little bit for doing so well throughout high school with some scholarships/grants/etc.

College Senior

Career Services: I personally have not looked into any of these things at Chemeketa. They would probably be very helpful, I just haven't visited them for some reason.

College Senior

Academic Experience: I've just been attending Chemeketa for my AAOT and hadn't decided on a major until about a month ago. A great place to figure out what you want to do for pretty cheap.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: There are a LOT of options for classes here. It's almost overwhelming, but in a good way. Some notable programs here are things like the nursing, fire science, and the electronics program.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: For a new student in college, it can be very intimidating for the first couple weeks; not here. I instantly felt welcomed due to the extremely nice faculty there.

Overall Experience: The college community is diverse with a large contingent of international students.

The college makes changes such as ending programs, cancelling classes, and changing what term classes are offered without considering their impact on students and without communicating about them beforehand.

The quality of instruction is highly variable. Some instructors merely read the text and powerpoints to students. Other instructors really care and want students to learn.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The orientation is a large group orientation and an online video about the school. Some advisors are very helpful but others seem to be only marking time.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: The college is offering more classes online over time. They use Blackboard for the online platform. Blackboard is a poorly designed interface from both the student and instructor perspective.

The school charges an additional 50 dollars for online courses. This is really annoying when a required class is only offered online.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: The career center is available to all graduates for free. The counseling on transferring is helpful but not very individualized.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid staff is more helpful than the staff at other community colleges I have attended. They are always polite and courteous.

The foundation runs a scholarship program with which they attempt to supplement what is available through financial aid programs.

Unfortunately, due to decreased support from the state of Oregon which causes rising fees and tuition the school has become increasingly unaffordable. This year there was a tuition freeze but unless the state of Oregon increases its funding the administration anticipates raising the tuition next year.

Two ways to attend Chemeketa Community College for free if you graduate from a local high school with a GPA above 3.5 or if you are over 65 years old.

Academic Flexibility: Very hard to hold a job while attending college full time! Each terms schedule is different and employers are not willing to adjust work schedule around school each term.

Online Courses: It was great when trying to work and go to school, however It cost more to take courses online. Professors were great, however a little slow to respond to questions at times.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Though it does pay for tuition and books it does not leave much left over, this makes it difficult as a full time student with a family. going to school full time does not leave much time in the week to have a job, and if you do get one it is hard to get them to work with your school schedule. it would be nice if the financial aid and scholarships were enough to help in this area.

Tuition & Financial Aid: For a community college the fees are good but wish there was a better payment plan.
