3 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far, this school has been alright for me. I'm just waiting to schedule an appointment with my advisor so I can move forward with the classes I need to take for my major.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, my experience with this college has been mixed. The biggest issue that I have with Northwest Florida State College is that the new system they installed for their networks, "Raidernet 2.0," has halted many interconnected workings of the admissions process. Because of these issues, students have been getting their financial aid delayed, and sometimes even cancelled. So far, I have been unable to use my financial aid to purchase books and supplies that I need for my classes. There are also many problems with the admission process in general. My financial aid was confirmed and approved by the federal government and the college in February of 2015, long before the open enrollment for the fall semester began. Simply because I have a different last name than my mother, I had to provide a birth certificate, proof of residency, a driver's license, tax information, child support information, and proof that my mother is my mother. This became a huge burden, especially with having to travel back and forth 30 miles a day to get all the paperwork sorted out. That was about $50 in gas by the end of the enrollment process. On top of that, I had to pay $15 for the GED Testing Services to send my GED transcripts to the admissions department for NWFSC. So far, to get all of this situated and settled, it cost about $65. Worse yet, there are thousands of students with the same problems that I have been dealing with. The admissions office is working on every case as it comes in, so there are about a few thousand students ahead of me before my financial aid is coming through. This could take several months, and might cause me to fail certain classes if I do not have the books and supplies necessary to complete them. As a disabled student, handicap accommodations leave much to be desired. Ramps are steep and require much strength in a wheelchair, and elevators for multi-story buildings are few and far between. The staff are nice enough to understand all of my concerns, though.

Overall Experience: Since we are in such a small town, everyone knows everyone, that makes it very easy to find out what you need to know if you ever need help. Plus everyone is super friendly and willing to put forth effort.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: As long as you use you'll do well. Campuses are beautiful & very clean. Just be careful at night & watch for Bears. You're success at the school depends on the teachers you choose.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: This 2 year community college took 7 years to be given an AA degree. Decide on a major, changing your mind will turn a 2 year adventure into a 7 year experience of, "Just wanting it to be OVER." Understand that the professors are either going to help a student as much as they possible can where others will bring you down, eventually causing moments of self doubt. Just trust yourself and remember everyday you go to that class, is another day closer to the end!

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: during dual enroment there was quite a bit of frustration and hoops to jump with admission/ registration and other things but as a college student its fine pretty easy and they accepted all the credits I have from other schools

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: im getting my A.A. here where its close to home and cheaper so I can save money for a school with my major

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the classes are fine and all the teachers I have had have been really nice and helpful/

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: again, while we have some degrees like nursing and education most students transfer to another school to finish degree work

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I don't know. I haven't taken an online course at this school because I learn better attending lecture

4 College Freshman

Student Body: this school has a wide range of people: high schoolers to retired adults returning for a new degree and has many ethnicities

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: tuition here is quite low. my parents make just a little too much money for me to get any aid. that is why I am tying to apply for all these long time consuming scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: im not sure about those things

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: most people transfer from this school to finish their degree

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: they have quite a few options so you can usually get the class you want with the teacher you want.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: they have all the things on the list and they are well organized

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: If you need help with something there is a place for it, but it's hard to find. Once you find the room you're supposed to be in there is always a wait

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: while i am in the middle of transfering my credits to enter another university, it seemed pretty easy to send my credits.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If i were to do this all over again, i would actually try to study instead of just not care about school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although all of my professors were great, there was one professor who just could not teach. she could not control the class. she was the worst professor i've ever had.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have went to job fair once, and it seemed like no one was interested in job fair. but they were overall great, did get some information.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: although i like traditional classroom more than online classes, they are useful since I can work on it whenever i want to.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Student body at my school does not do much. I do not see any changes they have made although they may have tried.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I did receive enough financial aid for tuition, but not for my housing and food. And school does not advertise their scholarships to students so most students do not know all the scholarships that are offered at school.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: most of students in this school who are majoring in elementary education got a job after graduation.

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.
