Tuition and Financial aid at CCAC, specifically the South Campus is probably the worst in the entire country. The scamming type online degree companies are more courteous, kind, helpful, and caring than CCAC and the South Campus.

If you are looking at flight training at CCAC, or CCAC in general, be prepared for multiple tuition rises yearly, or yearly at the minimum (...and they aren't small increases. It is almost as much as a standard 4-year school at this point). This has been a fact of life at CCAC since 2009. Costs continue to go up, and services / education continues to go down.

I really can't even put into words just how disgustingly obnoxious and unprofessional the financial aid staff is at the CCAC South Campus. The attitude problems and atmosphere in the financial aid office at CCAC South is just downright despicable. I really have no words. Please stay away from this place!

Finding a college is hard by itself, you are making a life choice that will effort your future. Finding a college is especially hard when you also have to worry about living by yourself and taking care of yourself. Those are both hard not only to do by themselves, but also those happening at the same time.CCAC South makes it easy because I'm close to home so i don't have to pay to live in a small dorm with a bunch of roommates but it also gives me the college experience by meeting people through my classes but being able to go home to my bed at the end of the day. The professors are very nice and when first applying and getting started all the workers where very nice! very happy with my decision as making this school my starting school until I'm ready to make the next step on moving out!

In the fall I took History of Women online with Dr. Jaqueline Cavalier...she was AWESOME. The questions she asks are so thought provoking and the student can tell she really cares about their education. I had always been curious about her and when we finally met in person, she agreed to allow me to sit in the class physically! I have a lot of respect for her and really enjoyed taking her class, and cannot wait to take her online Western Civilization II online next semester!
