The main reason I chose this college was because of the degree program offered. Although I passed the college placement exam I previously took the exam at another college, I was hoping it would be comparable and transferable. One class, the college success course, was tied to other courses and was listed as a required course for my entering semester. I tried for many days to get into one of the classes; however, the course had either a pre-requisite or co-requisite attached - preventing me from registering. I sat outside of the Admissions Office for approximately three hours to get into the course. Once seen by an Admissions Counselor, I learned that I could take the course next semester, and I would not be prevented from signing up for other courses...whew! That was a relief.

Helpfulness of the Professors – Some of the professors are great at explaining the lessons and making sure that everyone understands. One of my professors even gives multiple examples and describes things in many different ways so that each individual student understands. However, the biggest problem that I have is that one of my professors speeds through the lessons and doesn't explain things very well. She also hates when students ask questions. Your a teacher! I shouldn't have to teach myself, especially when I am paying for the class. Other than that, the professors are very helpful and are glad to help you!

So far, the professors I've had are wonderful! They have been very helpful and are very willing to help. However, I have heard from other students which professors NOT to take...so just as there are good educators, there are also very poor ones. I suppose most schools are like that though.

As far as the registration process goes, there always seems to be a glitch in the system and I have to call the school to get it fixed.

One thing that does actually annoy me, and I feel it is unfair to the students, is the length of time that it takes for the school to distribute the financial aid awarded. Most of the time, it isn't received until the middle of the semester.
