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!

Academic Experience: Again, you can make your workload as heavy or light as you deem necessary. That part is pretty wonderful! As far as the class registration process, it is kind of difficult. I felt like I didn't fully understand it for quite some time. It's good to not be afraid to ask questions. The professors are kind of hit and miss. Some of them are genuinely wonderful people and love teaching. Others are really not there to help you. You can't always go by what some people say about a particular professor, because you don't know their work ethic or what the specific circumstances were when they had that class. I do like the many different programs Forsyth Tech offers. It seems that they have a lot of fundamental programs to prepare you for whichever field of study you plan to continue in.

Campus Resources: I personally really love the different places to visit on Main Campus. I like to sit in the coffee shop and work on homework or go to the library and sit in a corner to read. There are several campus activities that go on all the time, but you have to be proactive to find out about them. Overall, the campus is pretty pleasant. People kind of keep to themselves generally, but it's a nice environment on campus.

Overall Experience: The career centers are helpful however when your in class explain to you that clinicals is the time to put on your best face because that's when employers are looking at you and looking at what potential you have. They discuss with you how you want to maintain a professional appearance and a professional attitude. They stressed the importance of doing well and clinical and showing the type of employee that you can be that they would want. They also tell you along the way but you can improve so that when you leave school you have a better chance of finding a job.

Student Body: Everyone is very focused on the course of study. They are also willing to help each other out and provide support both academically and with people's personal lives. They are proactive about getting together study groups and helping each other out.

Tuition & Financial Aid: In comparison to the other school that I was at I definitely feel like I'm getting all of my money's worth. The instruction is very thorough and I like the teachers. They are very organized and are very familiar with the field in which they are teaching. When I'm in class I don't feel like I'm so lost that I could not find help. Also in comparison to other schools I think the tuition is very reasonable.

4 College Junior

Career Services: They provide job fairs and teach you what to do and how to act for job recruiters to look at you. There's always information on the information boards regarding employment.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: You feel like you're getting your money's worth with the program and curriculums. The instructors are very good at what they do and they are willing to give you extra help and assistance if needed. In my program of study there is a lot of paperwork however the education is very thorough. In the last school I felt like my money was very much wasted however at this school I feel like I'm getting a true education and that my time isn't wasted.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Course registration is very easy because you can register in person and online. When registering in person, the office administration is very helpful and very quick with finding answers to your questions. The online description of the courses are very detailed and answers a lot of questions. The online tools to register are very user friendly and easy to navigate through. The workload for the nursing courses is very heavy due to heavy paperwork. It can get strenuous at times because of all the paperwork. However that is also the very thing that helps you retain the information and become very familiar with what you need to know in your course of study. They also offer options extra tutoring help which is extremely beneficial.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Everything easily accessible. Everyone is willing to help and is very supportive. Computers and study centers are readily available.Very clean campus. There's very little that you need that you can't find on this campus.
