What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally think that Jeff State is a great option for people who don't know what they want to major in or want some time at home before they move away to a 4 year college. The class size is perfect for students who need one on one help and they have plenty of tutoring opportunities around campus.

Pretty good school. Hard to get in contact with Financial Aid over the phone. Teachers are very dependable and caring. They usually respond to emails promptly. I wish they had a basketball team or some type of sports team. Overall good school and they are very accommodating to your needs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Jefferson State is the place that feels like home, but a get away to a big city. I came from the country and grew up on a farm, so with the smaller environment it feels homey, but with where it is located, you feel so far away. It is definitely a great place to go if you want to get away, but don’t think you are so sure about it once you do. I enjoy the campus and not having a far walk from class to class. Along with my fellow student body and my awesome, understanding professors. Jefferson State is a great place to be. Too bad it is only a two year college. I would love to be here for four!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Jefferson State Community College can best be described as obtuse. You are ultimately getting what you pay for: no frills education. Its all crunch, with no fluff. This is not necessarily a criticism, however. While Jeff State does have some issues, I have personally find my experience to be adequate for what I want to do in starting a career in Nursing. If you are willing to do the legwork, and dig through the crap, you can find a lot of good in this community college. To start with the bad: this is not a school that coddles its students, or lends a helping hand. If you want something from Jeff State, you need to take the initiative yourself. The paperwork is considerable, the instructions generally contradictory, and you will get two different answers to the same question depending on what department you ask. If you need something, from financial assistance, to guidance, you have to find it for yourself. This isn't to say that finding help is impossible, but you have to put in the work. You have to find the answers you need by digging through the student portal, by doing searches on the website, and perhaps most importantly, by just talking to the right people. Most of my answers came from a combination of extensive browsing of the student portal, with a follow up phone call (or two) to verify what I had seen. It's a pain, and takes up time, but you're not here for convenience; you're paying for the education. Now for the good; I have found that the classes at Jeff State are a good buy. Much like the rest of the college, they're not fancy affairs. These classes are there to impart knowledge on you, and that's it. But the professors have been good so far; I've only encountered one class that I thought had a professor that wasn't doing their job. Most of the teachers I have actively liked, and have done a good job at teaching whatever class I was in. I only had one instructor that I truly didn't care for, but he was also very knowledgeable; as much as I might have disliked him personally, I found his class extremely informative and useful I suppose the thing to take away from this review is that Jefferson State Community College is a business that sells a product, and that product is solid. It may not have the ease of access or customer service of other institutions of higher learning, but the education you will receive is well worth the price tag.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is the cheapest route to go especially when you need education and money. The first year is definitely worth it just grind for what you do. Do not mess around because this is the perfect opportunity for people who are from different countries, on a budget, and on strive for success.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a great and cost effective school for those looking to get an education and not spend the money they would at a University. This school works well with those who have a 9-5 business schedule and they help accommodate where they can. Overall It is a great school. I do however wish there was more opportunity for financial support, whether that be through extra sports or internal affairs, but they still do a good job of keeping it affordable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attend the campus located in Pell City, AL. Housing isn't an option with it being a community college. Overall the faculty is amazing and go out of their way to help you (at least in the nursing department). The library staff have always been extremely helpful in finding anything I need! I love the Pell City campus and plan to finish out my degree there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly enjoy going to school at Jefferson State. I was a little wary about going to a community college, but I am just so happy that I decided to attend this school. The professors are there because they want to be, all of the professors I have had truly love the subject they teach. This is so important because it excites and encourages the students to be attentive in class. Class sizes are normally around 20-30 people, which was advantageous because we received the one-on-one attention from the professor when we needed it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Jefferson State is great academically, but falls short when it comes to providing the "college experience." Not many extracurricular activities are offered, the only source of food available comes from two vending machines, and the Chilton-Clanton specifically does not offer as many classes as the other campuses. The campus police are very helpful and there is always at least one officer at the school.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There is a lack of selection of courses to take at my campus. Most are offered at another campus that is 40 minutes away.
