Limited Course Options, Terrible Communication...Welcome to the South. If you want to go to a school for anything but medical training, mechanical training, or beauty school, Somerset Community College is not for you. This school offers almost no programs, is only &quot;regionally accredited&quot; (which means if you want to transfer to a University out of State, your screwed), and the offices there are absolutely no help at all. Whenever I have an issue that needs dealing with, I'll go to one office (say, admissions), and they'll tell me to go to another (say financial aid). When I get to financial aid, they'll tell me I should go to admissions! When I told them I've already been there, I'm basically told &quot;We don't know. You're own your own.&quot; The financial aid, at first, seems very helpful, but if you have anything that needs doing that might be a slight inconvenience for them, you're also screwed. There's very little communication between professors and various departments. I had to register for the same class THREE TIMES before classes started because my Professor was under the impression that I did not meet the requirements, even though it said quite clearly that I did.

One good thing I can say for this place is that, if you manage to get a hold of one (I spoke to four different people while trying to get my schdedule in line), most of the advisors are great people who really are helpful. All but one of the four I spoke to really wanted to help me get things figured out.

I feel like I'm being kind by giving this school a D+. If you can, avoid it like the plague. If you can't avoid it, have a very good plan B worked out just in case. You'll probably need it.

Set Apart – SCC campus alone is different than other campuses. They have 3 different buildings for our convenience. The campus has a huge pond with a sitting area with ducks and beautiful birds to help us relax if were having a stressful day. Small classrooms so we can have more one on one interaction with our professors. Awesome academic advisors to help with any questions, enrolling and disenrolling into classes is a breeze! Every person i've met students as well as professors are very friendly, outgoing, and just awesome to be around. I always walk into class with a smile on my face

The individual assistance from the school's entire staff was overwhelmingly welcoming. The Veteran's group at the school is very informative and willing to work with Veteran's disabilities. Engaging with the Veteran's, the staff and the students have been most pleasing. The school being small, gives the students an ability to interact with everyone on a personal level, allowing them to learn not only from professors but also each other. I personally enjoy the small town atmosphere and would not change anything. I thank God for all he makes possible and I thank you for this opportunity.
