5 College Junior

Campus Resources: If you have all of your eggs in one basket (like a responsible adult should have), it is the easiest and smoothest school to get it! It is a state college so it has a variety of AA and AS degrees, yet is limited to medical and educational Bachelor Degrees. Smaller school so not the biggest classes. Teachers are very personable and actually feel like they want to get to know you. Absolutely WONDERFUL school over all. Only piece of advice? The school Academic Dean/president needs to make himself more involved.

Campus Resources: The campus is filled with enthusiastic professors, wonderful clubs, and many many more. Everyone is very engaging, wanting you to join every club, organization, and sport. Student centers here are helpful, while also giving students a space to relax. It's invigorating, the thoughts about stress is released while there. If you're needing to study in a quiet area, not only are there a wide variety of resources to study like the huge library, but also multiple areas of study groups held by tutors, and also professors that are free. It's simply amazing.

4 College Student

Student Body: The study body at my high school is not very thrilled about education and doesn't take their studies as serious as others.

Campus Resources: Help at every campus location.

Academic Experience: A lot of different majors to select.

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's OK now but it took me two years to be accepted as an independent student even though my parents did not support more than 50 percent and couldn't claim me as a dependent on their taxes.

Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I do not know. I haven't researched those aspects of my school yet. I will, however, look into to these things the closer I get to graduating.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: It's good they have several campuses and online classes for people farther away. There's a 24-hour gym on the main campus.The library has reasonable hours. Students can get free tickets to sports and shows. They have some events with free food. The student centers have TV's in them.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Unfortunately, there are some classes that have limited availability. There aren't really any weeked classes unless you're on a military base but no on really wants to go to school on the weekends anyway. They accept AP credits and dual enrollmnet credits from high school which is good. This semester I managed to get all my classes on Monday and Wednesday.

4 College Senior

Career Services: They have a career service center and post jobs on job boards around the school. I got a job from a poster they had at scholl. They have even have had job fairs there. So far it's good.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's great. I was awarded a scholarship for NWFSC when I was still in high school. They even have foundation scholarships that you can apply for on their website when they open up, they are really easy to apply for. Everyone should apply for them when they open up, I was able to get one. It's important to do good in high school so you get bright futures. They also have some work study programs. I even get money back to use for books and get leftover money that I save for tuition when I transfer.

3 College Senior

Student Body: They have some good clubs here. Overall I've had some nice, funny, and entertaining people in my classes. Overall no one has really been that rude to anyone that I've seen. Some people don't really say much to each to each other and in some classes we don't know each other's names. The main campus is mostly white people in classes while the Fort Walton Beach campus is more diverse.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: They have a pretty good variety of classes and registration is pretty easy. It's best to talk with a counselor before there's open registration so you're not waiting that long for an appointment. There are some really good teachers and some not so good ones, but they all know their material. It stinks that intro to financial accounting is broken into accounting 1 and 2 so that's one less elective I can take.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm just getting my A.A so it's pretty good. I don't know abouth the other programs. There are free tutors available and the teachers have office hours. They have a variety of electives you can take such as pottery, piano, dance, photagraphy, and computer programming. Unfortunately some classes are only offered once or twice a semester.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Registration is the same for in-classroom classes. Professor/student relationship was ok. Depends on the teacher. I had a horrible science teacher that WOULD NOT answer his emails for anything -try and find my review on RMP lol- but usually teachers will answer you back by the next business day. No peer to peer interaction other than the usual "introduce yourself and why you're taking the class!" on the discussion board. The d2l website isn't very user friendly in my opinion. It'll remind you of assignments 24 hours before they are due, even if you've already turned in the work. Trying to find a calendar of all the classes work due wasn't easy. It seemed that d2l would distort power points so we would have to download each power point and with a class like art apperciation it took up some memory. All in all it could be better. Classes that offer the pearson textbook and e-class option is a treasure. Take advantage of it!!

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is where NWFSC shines. It's cheap as heck. If you add classes and drop all of them there may be a lingering fee so just have that cleared before you pay for anything unnecessarily. The classes are usually really easy and they are cheap so you can't beat that at all. Idk about financial aid tho. I just paid out of pocket

Campus Resources: No campus aesthetic. None. Idk about the athletic center. That very well be the main event of the campus. Library is nothing special at all. Trying to print from the computer is a HEADACHE. Student center is a joke.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many students at Northwest Florida State College find that they have been immersed in a relaxing atmosphere. The campus is not quite as large as major universities. But for a junior college, it has an ample amount of resources. The main university is in Niceville, but there are five or six satellite campuses located throughout northwest Florida. New student housing is being constructed and is almost completed.

Other students feel like the campus is too small or that most of the teachers are inaccessible outside of the classroom. Most professors have very tight schedules and require strong time-management skills to fulfill their obligations. Some instructors are more helpful than others, but you have to catch them at the right time.
