3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Unfortunately many of my previously acquired credits did not transfer, however that was partially self fault. When I was 18 and did not care as much the university I was attending liked to say "C's get degrees", however they do not usually transfer. Aside from that slight let down in the application process though everything was quite easy and people quite helpful.

Online Courses: As a "non-traditional" student, I knew I was much more interested in the idea of online learning rather than trying to work the rest of my life around my education. Working two to three jobs at any given time as well as being 22 and trying to enjoy to youth and social life I needed to find a way to work my education into my already busy schedule rather than try and change everything else around. Online classes allow just that. While there are some time constraints and the occasional assignment requiring you to be logged on at a certain time, for the most part it allows the individual to have that extra flexibility with their busy lives and education.

Overall Experience: Being a community college class sizes are smaller, class styles seem to be more hands on, and professors seem to have a more individualized interest in their students; all these things are a major plus for me. Coming from a small town finding a community that emulates a lot of those similar traits is very comforting and helpful, personally, in my education.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Currently, I am undecided after taking my first college class after an almost three year break. This is my first stepping stone, and only option. I hope to finish my associates degree with no more debt accumulated in order to move onto the next step in my education.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: At first, online education seemed intimidating. However, the experience so far has been great! The faculty are easily reachable by email and helpful in quick responses.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Jeremy Dill in the Advising Department is top notch. He assisted me when I was not having any luck registering for my courses for the first semester. After sitting in a mandatory orientation meeting earlier in May of 2015, I had to ask to see a "seasoned advisor" as the others that were present at the Orientation Meeting did not seem to be very interested or as knowledgeable as he was.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Two of my courses that I took through SMCC were online. I enjoyed not having to sit in a class room during specific times and I liked the flexibility of managing my own schedule in order to get the assignments completed and uploaded.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sociology instructor was very passionate about his profession as he is also a counselor. He has a deep sense of concern for those less fortunate than others as well as for those who suffer with drug addiction.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't heard about how successful or unsuccessful that this department may be as far as job/internship prospects or even been to the career center. It seems like you don't actually get to study the "meat of your degree" until you are in the second year of the program. Because of the delay in learning the courses that actually have to do with the degree program, there doesn't seem to be any need to go to the career center at this point.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The admissions department is not very forthcoming with letting you know if you can test out of some classes that they feel are required in the first year. I have an Associate's Degree from 1986 and because it was from Andover College (now Kaplan) they only gave me credit for one class. I have also just completed an online EKG Technician course that consisted of 50 hours and upon taking the test for the State of Maine, will allow me to obtain employment doing EKG's. I am in the Pre-Radiography program and am hoping to be able to do sonograms, ultrasounds, etc. I also got my CPR Certification in August. With the EKG Technician course that I have just completed, I feel that I should get credit for this class. I want to be a well-rounded Radiology Technician and work in the Quick Care Clinics that are now providing Radiology Services in their locations.

Overall Experience: My psychology instructor was great! She is one of the adjunct teachers and is also a psychologist. She understands how the real world works, not just book smarts. My online English teacher is also great! She is one of the adjunct teachers and is also a writer.

Career Services: The offices try really hard to help all students.

Overall Experience: Career and Transfer services are great with students.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Professors want to help you achieve your goals.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The ocean scene is wonderful. Food there is not as good.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The view is unbeatable. The smell of the ocean and the salty breeze cannot be topped. This, however, does not compensate for the academic standards upheld at the school. Most of the teachers are good and easy to talk to. The school seems to attract a different crowd than what I grew up with. There is a lot of smoking and a lot of older class mates. There is no doubt it is worth the price.

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my time at SMCC. The faculty has been very helpful and gone above and beyond what I would have expected them to do. I have attended a state university and I don't remember my professor's names and I am sure they didn't have any idea who I was when I was there. Here at SMCC you get to know those students around you, you get to know your professors and they work with you and do what they can to help and accommodate the student's needs. I got a phone call from my adviser in the summer asking if I had registered for Fall classes. She told me who I should talk to regarding my questions, she gave me his contact information and also emailed him to let him know I would be getting in contact with him. The beach is beautiful and makes a nice relaxing place to study. I would recommend SMCC to anyone who is looking for a personable, friendly, helpful, beautiful campus and get the hands on learning that is needed to start your career in your field. You get the experience needed, along with the degree.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my time attending SMCC. The campus is beautiful, I love the beach right on campus. The faculty has been very helpful and personable. I had attended 1 semester at a state university and my professors didn't know my name, let alone anyone else. The classes at SMCC are small, friendly and it makes learning much more enjoyable. The faculty helps out so much, that I feel they have gone above and beyond what I would have expected especially considering their class loads. They are flexible, they are willing to help, or point you in the direction of some one who can. I actually got a call from my adviser in the middle of the summer asking if I had registered for classes, who to talk to since I had questions and that she would email that person to let them know I would be seeking their help. I enjoy the scenery, the ability to walk around campus and not be overwhelmed, and how organized the campus is, depending on major or what your course is. If you are looking for a personable touch to your learning, making friends, being with same people for most of your time here, getting to know those around you and your teachers and having a beautiful place to study or just relax I would absolutely recommend SMCC.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was originally planning on going to UNE but it was far too expensive, and in my mind, not totally worth the cost. SMCC was a much cheaper option with just as nice a campus. The dorm options are scarce and you're only guaranteed housing if you apply super early. Though I applied mid-July and was still given a dorm. Class registration is easy and flexible and the people are fairly nice.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't started classes yet, but the campus is nice. The co ed dorms are better than expected.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Considering SMCC is a community college, it has some wonderful attributes. There is a beach right on campus, the faculty is knowledgeable and helpful, and the price is very affordable. I would recommended SMCC to any prospective student.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I rate this as okay because I do not have a great deal of experience with the topic.

Class registration was ideal: simple. As SMCC is a community college, they have a lot of transfer arrangements with local state and area colleges to facilitate an easy transfer for further education. There are so many programs of study to major in at SMCC, a helpful thing for those who are unsure as what to major.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I do not have much experience with the quality of the athletic center & campus activities, so this review does not include those.

The campus itself is really nice, but as it's an old fort, some buildings are old and rather outdated. Being right on the beach is what makes this a special school. There are many places to do school work or relax, inside and outdoors. The library is reasonably sized with many computers for work and tutoring services advertised. Resources are readily available and easy to locate.
