I originally and enrolled for CNA. First semester I had two classes that weren't too bad second semester I had four classes, and a total of 30 homework assignments all due at the end of each week. Five months into the course I was told they no longer have this program and I were need to switch my whole entire plan and career. When explaining my concerns to the person present they chose one for me. The course is supposed to be 8 months or so I was told, when I first enrolled I picked my classes and was ensured that these were all the classes I would need. The teachersaying response to an email can take up to a week when in need of assistance, by then your assignment is due. My finals due date was changed two days earlier than scheduled. Now thr story changes and I have to take another semester and they also teach the course for what I originally signed up for. I was not properly informed of who my Dean was, adviser, counselor, when graduation was, or if I was even walking. I had to take time off work just to drive 45 minutes away to speak to someone because they would not pick up the phone or return my calls. I have never experienced a school as unorganized as SCTC, nor have I ever experienced the amount of stress they've caused me. When you go to this school, your money is taken and your thrown to the wolves to fend for yourself. The only good thing about this school is the psychology teacher, Mr. Duke. He actually teaches unlike the other teachers I had and he cares about his students.

Southern Crescent offers a quality education without the hefty price tag. If you want a career it's a good place to start and if you want to go beyond the associate degree almost all core classes transfer so you can save money and use the bulk of your Financial aid to go for your bachelors or Masters and not missuse it on just core classes at a four year school. Most professors are very personable and do care about their students. Only a few instructors have I regretted having but that is not uncommon on any campus. the staff is sweet and helpful and financial aid is usually pretty good about helping quickly.

Teachers are difficult to get to and seem to resent questions. If a student asks a question via email, it should ne answered for all students, since most of us have the same questions but are reluctant to ask it.

Online teacher often don't provide enough templates or examples of the differences between poor, okay, and excellent. Often, we don't receive our graded papers or tests for quite a while, so cannot learn from our mistakes. Often, we don't know our graded papers/tests have come back because we aren't told.

Our teachers seem lazy and disorganized. They may know their subject, but seem reluctant to or unable to teach us.
