Overall Experience: I have enjoyed coming to Forsyth Technical Community College and would do it over again if I had the chance to. Classes are small and the college has great teachers.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This is a great college, they offer different classes at different times, to try and work around your schedule. Very adult oriented school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From my basic classes, the teachers knew what they were talking about and the class sizes were pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I love that I can choose what time and where I want to take my class.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a stepping stone, the school is good, especially for people who are changing professions and haven't been in school for a while.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I don't prefer to take online courses, but when I did, they were okay because I was able to do my assignments on my own time as long as they got submitted on time.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Being that this is a community college, interaction isn't as much of a big deal as it is in a university.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: they haven't really guided me on what I should do concerning financial aid or scholarships and I'm honestly going in blind.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: As an upcoming nursing student, I've heard that sudents that are already in the ADN program say that it's pretty intense but they also love it and when they graduate they're excellent nurses.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: there are quite a bit of programs offered at the school

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: not much available to students other than computers and an old library, although free tutors are available.

Academic Flexibility: Transferring credits TO Forsyth Tech is the hardest part. I attended a 2 year Bible Institute prior to Forsyth Tech. They only accept credits from schools that are regionally accredited. My school was not.. So none were transferred at all! I wasn't necessarily looking for them to be transferred class for class, but I thought at least they'd replace some electives.. Nope. Not a one.

Overall Experience: Overall, Forsyth Tech is a good school. I have enjoyed getting to know many very different people that I otherwise would not have come into contact with. There are so many different age groups at FoTech. Many adults going back to school to obtain a degree, and many kids right out of high school that have no idea what they want to do. I think that may be one of the most unique things about the school too! In a classroom, you can have three 18 year olds, a couple 24 year olds, and a 43 year old (and the occasional 69 year old..). Most of the professors are very easy to understand and will try to help ya out the best they can. I like the school overall. It was very convenient for me.

Overall Experience: The class size is typically between 15-30 students, so you can usually make a pretty good connection with your professor. I liked many of my professors at this school. I do attribute much of that though to the fact that I was proactive and asked my professors specific questions to be sure I understood things correctly. I like the informal atmosphere provided in most classes. Once a professor gets used to you, it becomes a lot more relaxed and you learn the things that they most detest and those which they most like. There are a ton of classes offered at Forsyth. You really just have to make sure that the ones you take match up with the program of study you will be transferring to! (because most of the students at Forsyth Tech are transferring somewhere after they finish their degree there..)

Overall Experience: I am glad to have chosen Forsyth Tech to complete my Associates Degree. It may not have been the 5 star highest quality college, but it was definitely affordable. The classes that I took there will transfer virtually anywhere, so that is even better. :)

Online Courses: Many online courses are geared toward people who are on-the-go a lot. I am definitely one of those people. The one hard thing to do is to be consistent, especially if you work a job that is not a consistent schedule. I do think that the workload is a lot more than in a face-to-face class! The professor/student relationship is good. It's not too difficult to get in touch with a professor via email or discussion board on Blackboard. There is little peer-to-peer interaction unless instigated by the professor for an assignment.

Student Body: Forsyth Tech's student body is very disconnected. Because it does not have dormitories and most students commute, the only interaction is in classes or in-between. Everyone has a drastically different schedule, so it is rare to find someone who is in more than one of your classes in a given semester. There are many different ethnicities on campus! Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, you name it, we got it. It's generally accepted to be different. The city we're located in is a very diverse city, so there are many diverse people in it!

Tuition & Financial Aid: I love the affordability of Forsyth Tech. I actually took a full load of classes (5 classes) last semester and paid only $360 in tuition! The books were actually more expensive than tuition itself! For summer classes, I am paying about $680 for three classes though. There is very little financial aid available during summer. Forsyth Tech bases all of their financial aid off of the FASFA. So, if you plan to transfer there, you need to complete your FASFA first. The people in Financial Aid are pretty nice. One thing I don't really like is that if you have financial aid, it will not show up in your account until the END of the semester. Sometimes this poses an issue where your account is on hold and you have to make several phone calls to confirm that you really have paid for the semester--because you have some sort of "invisible financial aid."

Career Services: The Career Center at Forsyth Tech is pretty great! They do a good job of contacting students and reminding them that they are available to help. It seems like there are many connections established through Forsyth Tech to help students after graduation.

Academic Experience: I am in the Associates of Arts College Transfer Program. It is intended to get most of your general education courses out of the way before transferring to a 4 year school. I like it okay I guess. There's nothing super special about it, and you're typically in classes with several other people that have different majors or career choices. You can make it more or less busy as you choose. Your adviser can be very helpful when it comes to pacing yourself and knowing what is your limit. Mine has been pretty helpful!
