Clueless advisors, reps and faculty members that don't know how to respond to emails or answer phones. Their 2 year degrees take more than two years because they advise you poorly on scheduling classes. This school tried dropping surprise tuition charges on my account and they tried negating my financial aid because their financial aid rules on the website are vague or they contradict their own rules and the CSCU rules for the whole state. If you send an appeal expect to be waiting weeks on end while playing phone tag or getting no answer, only for your appeal to be denied anyway. Now they've outsourced their admissions phone line to a call center, so I imagine it's only gotten worse. Also, they offer no meal plans and the food is overpriced. Save your money and effort and study somewhere else if you can.

I thought It was a great start to college and experiencing it. Loved the professors, they were extremely helpful and nice, wanted you to push hard. Even though I just finished with my certification there I might head back there in the future. Only God knows!

NVCC is the ideal school for students looking to save money and buy themselves some time to see what their passions are. I was expecting better social aspects as well as a friendly atmosphere. However, most people are there to get in and out, and would rather stick to themselves. Of course there are opportunities to make friends, but it is completely up to you to do so. I have had my car vandalized for having a political sticker and the teachers are mostly left-sided. The education is the same as any other school, but the math programs are watered down, so be ready for a transition to a four-year school. I want to get out of here as soon as possible, but I am using the time I have here to explore what I might want to do. There are clubs, but they are small or not a focus. There are vending machines and cafeteria food, but it is expensive. Go here if you want to save money, if you are working, or if you don't know what you want to do yet.

There’s definitely work to be done but overall for a community college, the school has a lot of opportunities for students not normally found in a two year school. I would recommend this school for anyone who may be unsure of what direction they want to go in or what major they’d like to pursue, solely for the low cost classes and extra curricular activities offered.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I attended two weeks of my high school senior year before I was admitted into a detox for substance abuse. After detox, I went to a wilderness program twice, had a two week stay in a hospital again, and went to two different residential treatment programs. I entered into the second program in late winter. While in the program I attended an adult school for my diploma and took classes at the local community college. I completed a year of high school within a few months and graduated on schedule. My intellect and acadmic ability allowed for me to complete my education at that time, but I struggled emotionally with an anxiety disorder and bi-polar. This eventually became disabling. A few years ago I was single and pregnant and with that pregnancy a lot changed. The bi-polar was gone, the anxiety became manageable and I went back to school last Spring. I currently have a 4.0. In March I turn thirty and if given the chance to go back, I would tell myself anything is possible, to just hold on during the roughest times, and its never too late to turn your life around. "Never Give Up."
