4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I experienced zero frustrations. People were already available, ready to anticipate concerns to address them before they became an issue. It's been very convenient.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: There many courses offered at times of the day and evening

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I feel like a few of the science classes can be a little more flexible, but overall everything works out.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I am only taking a couple classes here to finish up some classes needed for my major that were not available at the University I attended, so I am not a full time student.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have been visiting colleges, and as long as you stick to a state school, some of your credits will transfer. If you go to a private top notch school, most credits will not transfer except perhaps for electives. The reasoning behind it is not cut and dry. It seems to be on the whim of the transfer admissions personnel.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

For each class, generally there are many different times to take a course. This makes working or having another commitment while going to school very easy—or at least easier. Most classes don't require too much homework on a daily basis, and all deadlines for projects and papers are reasonable. If something major comes up, the professors and administration are very helpful in finding a solution that fits you.

Taking online or hybrid classes allows for more flexibility, making them very helpful for students who also work or have a family.

Tips for Earning Credits
Do all of the work; skipping assignments will make it harder for you later!
Academic/Testing Requirements
CCC requires a high school diploma or GED (General Equivalency Diploma). Students can work toward a GED while taking CCC classes, but the College does not offer a GED program. Applications of students who do not have a high school diploma or a GED will be reviewed by the director of Recruitment and Marketing Services. Placement testing is used in computer skills, English, and math. All of these are required, unless the student has taken ACE (Accelerated College Education) courses or similar cases. The required computer skills test can be taken online at any computer, but it must be taken-no exceptions. If you get below a certain grade, you will be placed in lower-level basic computer knowledge classes.
Transferring Credits In & Out
The credits transfer in and out easily. There may be a few minor issues, but overall there is little to no trouble.
Work & Life Experience Credits
Corning does offer work and life experience credits. You don't hear about them much, so they cannot be very common, but they do exist! Your best bet would be to ask Admissions about it.
Typical Session Length
Some classes last five weeks (typically .5 credit classes), some last 10 weeks, but most last 14 weeks (the whole semester).
Class Style & Structure
The class style varies a bit from class to class. Some are lecture, some are lecture and online (hybrid), and some are only online.
Course Registration Process
To register, you can add classes yourself online, or you can see your academic adviser for help.
Did You Know?
Art and music classes will not transfer to other schools, but they are very popular and can really help you meet new people!
