Tarrant County College District Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


Sometimes I get a professor that is not organized enough to be teaching an online course. Thier classes are difficult to navigate and the professor is hard to get in touch with. This has happened with 2 professors already in my time here.


Comparing Tarrant County College to a real University is like comparing a cheap buffet to a 4-Star restaurant. As much as the try to reassure you that they are just as worthy as a real college at a cheaper price, the truth is that they know nothing about education and the effort put forth by universities. The faculty at this school simply goes through the motions of whatever their job is. I transfered from UTSA (with a 2.8 GPA) because I missed my family. Now I have a 1.6 GPA and I wish I went to UTA.


The most frustrating thing about TCC is that it doesn't possess a college atmosphere. At times, it can feel like students are simply in the thirteenth and fourteenth grades.


Not enough job opportunities.


I do not have any complaints.


The specific campus that I am at right now makes me feel like I am in a hospital because everything is in one building.


The most frustrating thing about my school is waiting to speak to a counselor.

The most frustrating thing about my school is that it is not where had planned to be. I was going tgo attend a college in Houston, Texas but unfortunately ran into finacial problems that left me with no means to pay for schooling there.


The atmosphere is very dated, dark and drab. I think most schools need to be updated to reflect the sort of freshness and innovation that you would hope to see in its students. The environment needs to be more inspiring.


While i dont find any thing really frustrating about school i do find the fact that you cant really take as many classes as you want especially if you not doing well, but would still want to. Class limits on students who do poorly, while its resonable. Some of them would still like to take as much classes as they want to and try hard to pass to make up the grades they did poorly on.


When I have a question pertaining to one the registers office, they will send me to the financial aid , then financial aid office will tell me to check with my advisor and then my advisor has to contact the both offices to inform them that they both could have helped me. I have a proble with them not wanting to take ownership of the situation.


The limited amount of marketing courses is a major frustration for me as a student at Tarrant County College. Overall this campus is extremely student friendly with an abundance of resources.


The most frustrating thing about my school is that the people that schedule classes continue to over lap other classes that we need to graduate. For the past two semesters I have been trying to get the classes I need to graduate and they keep over lapping the same classes. I was told that this semester this would not happen and it did again. I applied for graduation in October for May 2010. The dean of our culinary department is still trying to work this out. They all have been aware of this since October.


The most frustrating thing would be the lack of campus police and other students that do not follow the rules about smoking in close proximity to the entrance/exits.


I wish they had more specific resources for older students returning to school after years being away from a college campus. The last time I was in school, the internet was just a rumor. Now I have found I can get my entire education online. A little frustrating to navigate despite the fact that I am well versed on the internet.
