African Americans students are mistreated here. I will never attend this school ever again in my life. Racism is very much alive.

School scammed my wife out of $1000 and didn’t give option of payments and added about $100 of additional fees such as a ‘convenience’ fee for paying online? Like seriously how can you call yourself a decent “college” when you have 8 instructors for one class and 5 for another, save yourself the money and go to a better college in the state and you’ll be way better off. This school is just a money grab. They never answer their phones when you have questions either, we wanted info on why we had to pay back a grant and a scholarship when she withdrew prior to the deadline with all the grade requirements but could not get in contact with anyone. The only time they contacted us is when they told us we had til Jan 1st 2018 to pay it all back in full. Only gave us less than a month to pay it back do they don’t care about your education, only your pocketbook. Good luck dealing with this “college”.

I graduated from high school in 2012. The statics were stacked against me; African American girl, from a single parent home, childless, no criminal record and first to attend college in my immediate family.I'm a "mama's girl", so I wasn't ready to leave home. First, I enrolled at another local college. The institutions polices & procedures were extensive. This caused me to withdraw from the school in question.Central Carolina Technical College was the next school on my list. My transition into Tech was easy. The staff and faculty were welcoming, patience and encouraging. The course work assignment were realistic and allowed multiple chances to answer the questions correctly.Central Carolina likes to hire in house. I've been blessed to work 3 positions while enrolled in classes. After graduation I worked 2 more jobs as a customer service representative and a tutor at the college.My visit to Central gave me freedom to grow as a person. Life is what you make it. Get involved. Step by step.
