Student Reviews and Ratings for Bluegrass Community and Technical College
Worst experience ever !!! All they do is send you emails after your phone calls and send you straight to surveys ! Comeplete run around and they are very unhelpful ! I applied and had to ask to be sent my acceptance letter again as well as not receiving any of my student information . I made numerous attempts to take classes and no one helped ! Very rude everytime I called .Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Cooper campus is the worst. Every time I have to go to meet with someone they are rude and act like it is an inconvenience to them. Horrible customer service!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
BCTC has its problems, but the classes are excellent as are the vast majority of teachers. I've read the various bad reviews here, and they mostly boil down to: nobody held my hand the whole time.If you are interested in your own education, take responsibility for knowing what classes to take to get your degree, and stay out of financial aid trouble, you'll be fine. But if you want to wait until the last minute, blow off class, then let someone else tell you what to do because you have no clue, then you may not get your degree on time (or at all). But then, college really isn't for such people.If you want a good affordable education, and you are willing to take responsibility for yourself, BCTC is a great place to learn and an excellent jumping-off point for a 4-year degree in Kentucky.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Lets start with the teachers and work our way down. I take cources online, this semester I had two teachers that were absolutely amazing, quick to answer questions and make instructions very clear, they would allow students to work around their busy scedule, two other teachers were very entitled, somewhat rude in conversation and claimed no blame when an error was pointed out to them, literally their job consist of setting up a web page, and grading test, most of which are pre-made, so the fact that I put myself in debt to pay these people to be rude to me is mind boggling. Tuition, the prices arent to bad but not to great, $2500 a semester is a bit much for a community college though. Now the worst part, figuring out what classes you need for your chosen major, speaking with anyone that you think can help you and all the lost time you will spend writing emails and on hold for phone calls. First advising, I believe advising is a myth, it took me 6 months to get enrolled, 3 of which were me trying to figure out what classes I needed, I have currently been waiting on a return phone call or email from my so-called advisor for a week now, meanwhile classes are filling up, prolonging the wait list for me to graduate, so they get another $2500 out of me because my required classes are full, calling almost any number to will generally send you to a student specialist, who are payed to jerk you around and give you a number to call which is the number you called originally, and good luck making an appointment. Finacial aid office seems to be the only people that have their s**t together, quick easy info when you call them. Realizing that my advisor is useless I tried to enroll myself in classes I thought I needed, went thru and found them, to end up on a screen, telling me I cannot enroll myself. All and all, school work is easy, most class formats are easy to navigate, but god help you if you need any sort of help figuring out your future in this school.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I think like any other school, BCTC has many benefits and drawbacks. When I went there, I found the professors to be fantastic (both online and in person). Many were understanding and helpful, which was great as I worked full-time while in college and often times needed to either move ahead in the work or turn something in later than expected. Either way, they were more than fair and accommodating.The tuition is not cheap. Sure, it's cheaper than your average University, but what they end up charging you when they try to keep some students behind another semester here and there to fulfill additional requirements is outright wrong. Many of my fellow students complained most about the lack of guidance they received, or inaccurate information they were given about their degree class requirements. We would be told one thing - this is what you need to take in order to get this degree. When the time came to collect on said degree, they would change the terms and insist you needed to take something else in order to fulfill the requirements. Then some other red-tape would come into play later on. I knew many students who fell into that trap and ended up attending a year longer than necessary.I'd say for meeting your gen-eds or focusing on vocational-training specific programs (dental hygiene, nursing aide, etc.), than BCTC is more than suitable. I would be remiss if I didn't caution students on the guidance and financial aid. Know what you need coursework wise before you start - AND know what it is going to cost you. I can't speak to their current operation. I can only hope the aforementioned departments have improved in the student experience.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
