Overall Experience: The diversity on campus is what truly make this community college campus stand out. It is a beautiful campus and the professors are very unique in character.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience at school has been casual. People keep to themselves during class unless its class discussion time. There are opportunities for students, you just have to know where to research. What I found most helpful was the school catalog before registering in my first classes and on-campus tutoring at El Camino College.

4 College Senior

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Through the MESA center, we are given many opportunities for research and internships

Online Courses: In my experience it was bad because, the course was a GE and I was taking a few STEM courses in that same semester, so I was so engulfed with the STEM classes that I would forget about the assignments for that GE class.

4 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: There's a lot of diversity at elco, and everyone seems to be happy with the diverse community there.

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: It seems like they don't want to pay the students their money, they take a long time to disburse the financial aid checks, they always miss the deadline by weeks, and are not forgiving if students miss payment deadlines.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Elco is very good in the STEM field, the math and physics departments are very rigorous but prepare the students very well. They also have a very nice MESA center which allows us to many resources, like tutoring, free printing, and nice study areas.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: The professors a telco are very helpful, they really teach and prepare the students for the next level.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: The buildings are very old and some places feel and look dirty because of the age.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: There are a numerous amount of Directory that assist incoming students that have questions about making the transition from a Community College to the university of their choice. The transfer Center that is inside the student services building located in the middle of the El Camino College campus.The financial aid Lab is also a big help because they assist you with signing up for financial aid, inform you about work-study, and even have copies of documents that need to be submitted to a financial aid counselor such as Student verification and dependency status and also fee waivers.The El Camino campus has different services but they also help with any question you may have.They do not transfer you to a different directory throughout the time you are on the phone or in front of them.Overall they have good Campus resources.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I wish more online classes were available for more difficult classes.

3 College Junior

Student Body: I didn't spend much time around school to make friends and get to know people. The few times I attended clubs of some sort they were okay

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I didn't qualify for full- aide , but was able to get my class fees waived after my first two semesters, which helped tremendously financially.

2 College Junior

Career Services: It's difficult to get in touch with counselors to help guide you in future classes, etc.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: There are many resources available, you just need to know where to look. I didn't find out about many resources until I was ready to transfer.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: It's nearly impossible to get decent classes and work out a good schedule due to a lack of teachers and class size/ population.
