4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There aren't any weekend classes, but they have plenty of classes at all times during the week.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Because of the community college setting, classes rarely exceed 35 people. This makes it very easy to get one on one time with any professor.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The instructors on campus know what they're talking about. I would say they're just as knowledgeable in their field as professors at 4-year universities. If there are times where students feel like they're not understanding the course material laid out by the professor, they have ample time to schedule an appointment with their teacher to understand what they were missing.

While there may be a lack of variety in classes when compared to 4-year universities, I believe the low costs make it a very good trade off.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: While I currently only go to one of the small campuses, the education offered is very good; which makes the school even better because of its low costs. The only detriment I feel worth mentioning would be the lack of classes, which isn't even that severe when compared to other community colleges, as Sierra College is a top notch community college. Yet I believe a smaller variety of classes compared to a 4-year university is to be expected when going to a community college, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to new students.

Online Courses: Online courses provide a close relationship between instructors and students, as well as amongst the students. It is a requirement of online courses that students actively participate in discussions. Workloads for these classes or moderate and consistent. The online courses are well structured and organized.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The physics and engineering departments offer courses that are second to none. Mathematics and computer science have some professors that are not as passionate or as motivated to teach, but there are absolutely quality professors in these departments as well. The sizes of the classes are small which facilitate learning and allow for a better academic environment.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Professors provide knowledge of internship opportunities and host resume workshops. The professors have real-world experience in industry and serve as mentors to students not only in school studies, but also in career prospecting and advice. Professors work closely with businesses and companies to ensure students have internship opportunities.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: The engineering major is an incredibly demanding program that requires dedicated hard work. Students are exposed to a diverse scope of courses including drafting, descriptive geometry, statics, materials science, and circuit theory, not to mention all other requisites from other areas of focus such as mathematics and physics, and general education requirements. The classrooms and equipment are dated, but the professors make good and creative use of all tools that are available. Additionally, professors are helpful in providing knowledge of internship opportunities.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Sierra college physics and engineering departments offer an incredible education that not only provides knowledge in the associated fields of study, but also prepares students to transfer to four-year colleges as well as prepares students to be successful in future life endeavors.

Overall Experience: I have yet to experience a bad professor at Sierra, all of my professors just want students to learn and are happy to help students who need help.
