Academic Flexibility: My experience with the college has been really good, I have always been able to take classes I need when I was able to.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I usually rely on rate my professor to help me decide on what professors and sometimes what classes to take; if a professor is rated badly, they probably are correct. Class sizes are usually never more than 35, at least in the courses I have taken.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm a single mother, working (over) full time as an LPN- so I am a part time student. Right now I am trying to knock out prerequisites for the LPN to RN program, and the professors are awesome. My peers are helpful and funny. Resources are ample and I'm feeling confident! Except for tuition-- I could use some assistance with the cost (wink wink choose me!)

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The curriculum is challenging enough to make a student work hard to retain information, yet the teachers are well educated and very involved with the students. Tutoring is always available to students that are struggling, and there are plenty if quiet places to study.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I enjoy my classes and there are oppurtunities for my work to be seen in the Juried art shows and for me to learn more.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Since it's a small school, the teachers are more willing to help each student more thoroughly. Additionally, in spite of being a small school, the curriculum is bigger than one would initially expect. It's an especially good school for anyone looking to major in visual or performing arts.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a great small town state college. This place is solid

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

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.
