Tuition & Financial Aid: At the end of my first semester I was fined a major amount of money. I was constantly told by the financial aid office that I had enough money to cover the cost, however, the bursar's office told me that I didn't have any financial aid. My account had to be overridden and my information had to be reentered. The entire experience was exhausting and completely unneeded. However, the cost of receiving a quality education was well worth the experience.

Academic Experience: The professors that I dealt with were helpful and treated me like an individual. The curriculum was interesting and kept my attention throughout the semester. In my opinion the homework was not to challenging. The registration process was easy and I usually did not experience any problems.

Campus Resources: I write poetry in my spare time and there was several activities that catered to that; one of those activities was an open mic and the other one was a poetry contest. The library provided me with computer to use when mine was broken. The staff was incredibly helpful at the student center. There were bulletin boards all over campus that provided everyone with helpful information.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are appropriate and the styles vary slightly among professors.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: When you walk around campus you see a variety of people. At the same time it is a community college so hardly anyone id denied to come to the college

1 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office workers are rude and they do not work with yo to get your financial aid. They say you can fax them papers and forms but do not because they will say they never got them.

Academic Flexibility: It is easy to schedule classes on particular days early on, but as you get into upper level classes there is very little options and choices.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: CCBC has helped me figure out my major and prepared me to transfer to a four year. The classes has given me valuable information that I will need as I go through college and life.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone pushes you to get the associates degree, but I am really trying to solidify my major choice and get credits that I can transfer to my next university.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am a very dedicated student so I never worry about the workload being too much. I do dislike that every professors acts as if their class is the only class I am taking.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Professors are very hit or miss. Some professors turn out to be amazing and teach the curriculum well and then other don't even bother giving rubrics for assignments.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The tutoring center could be stronger. When I was taking Calc 1, the tutor that was suppose to be for Calc just stared at the problems in confusion

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think all college is currently over priced. The price for college is the highest it has ever been. The finance department tries to help the best they can though.

2 College Freshman

Career Services: Being that it is a Community College, they don't really have a post grad department.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The curriculum is good but not all the professors are decent at teaching. The chemistry professors at my campus are especially known for being poor teachers. Knowledgeable but poor at teaching.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Very well organized for the amount of variables needed to consider.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Tutors are mostly students and are only helpful sometimes. Library has a good amount of books and resources but charges 10 cent a copy. They need to upgrade to digital scanners that send the images directly to email accounts. Athletic center is large but the fitness gym is small. There are always activities going on around, but not as much as a four year college has.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: the resources on the campus are great.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: It was very easy for me to plan classes around my schedule.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would chose the school over again because it is convenient for me to go to.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The class sizes are great. They are not too large so the teachers are able to focus on students more.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I love online classes. They let me work at my own pace and am able to get my work done more efficiently because I do not learn well sitting in class for a while.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Even though it's a two-year school, the Community College of Baltimore County still packs a four-year punch in terms of everything it provides. Student life activities are planned by the season, with athletics, events, and clubs and organizations that are top-notch. Any student can choose to be a Greek member, Black Student Union correspondent, or MVP for the CCBC basketball league.

Aside from the student life aspect, CCBC makes academics its top priority. All professors have a different way of teaching; however, they are all similar in one aspect—they expect a lot from their students. No one said that college-level courses would be easy, and the professors at CCBC make sure that students earn their grades (whether it's an A or a D). To make the Dean's List at the end of each semester, a student must earn a GPA of 3.5 or higher while taking at least 12 credits without earning a D or F during that time. To be a part of the Honors Program, a student must complete 15 honors credits and earn an overall GPA of 3.5 or better. For students who struggle with school, CCBC provides tutoring resources to help students try to achieve Dean's List or honors status. With so many opportunities and support, there's no excuse not to get the most out of this college, but it's really up to the student. The future is in his or her hands.
