5 College Junior

Academic Experience: To be a student studying emergency services is such a honor. This course load is very challenging at times but with the support of my teachers, it makes learning the information easier. The faculty in emergency services will stay up at all hours of the night to answer the students questions, even after we leave the classroom. They make their availability to us a priority and that it was matters most.

Overall Experience: Tidewater community college is an extremely goal orientated environment. Every faculty member I come in contact with has been very helpful with my questions, concerns and need of direction. I highly recommend TCC to any individual looking at colleges.

Online Courses: Make sure you check rate my professor for good professors. And check to see if you need the book because I didn't need one for an econ class and it saved me money.

Academic Flexibility: When I first started going to TCC they gave a hard time about transferring some of my credits. While the English and math were fine, they didn't want to give me credit for any of my humanities courses. These were pretty basic classes too, like World Religions, until I talked to a counselor that cared and fought to have them transfer. They only transferred credits that pertained to my degree program plan and left the others on the wayside.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: The online classes are basically all the same. You're expected to do some kind of discussion board and reply to your classmates. A lot of times there isn't any more interaction beyond there. Some teachers have done more and actually had assignments in addition to the discussion boards and tests, those are the ones I prefer!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of my courses have been great and some not so much. Several of my teachers have been very passionate and others haven't. I do like that the class options have been pretty flexible between classes on campus and online.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm not sure about all careers, but for the one I'm going for the opportunities after school are great. You have several clinicals during the program to give you real world experience and the success rate for passing the licensing exam is extremely high!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is great for a community college. I've taken a mix of in school and online classes, they have been basically the same as the other community college I previously attended. Some of the teachers have been passionate about teaching and their students, while some you could tell this was a second job and that's how they treated it. The teachers that have been in a particular degree program are usually more dedicated than in the gen ed classes.

Academic Flexibility: Sometimes the classes you need aren't that available. Certian majors are not as popular as others so there are limited times that required classes are offered. Schedules will have to be rearranged to fit what you need.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Online courses can be difficult because their is a lot of information that you have to learn yourself. However, even online teachers love to help us to do our best.

5 College Senior

Career Services: TCC has job and transfer fairs available to their students so everyone can explore all their options for after school.
