The worse school I’ve even been to. NO ONE wants to help. I’ve been emailing my advisor for two weeks with no answer and I can’t even get someone to pick up the phone. I work 2 jobs and I don’t have time to drive 45 minutes for the off chance that someone MIGHT be there to help me. I just need to know if one class got transferred but no one will help me. Idk what to even do at this point.

I had Wendy Dees for PreCal online. The WORST experience I’ve ever had with a teacher and course. She did not respond to emails, the whole online course was terribly dis-organized, we never knew what was going to be on the exams and it just felt like one big joke. The exams were harder than anything I’ve ever taken. (coming from a full time PreMed student at Auburn University on the Dean’s List continually)I thought I was the only one struggling so I reached out to my classmates online and literally EVERYONE was failing her exams, and majority of these people had completed their homework, gone to tutoring and emailed her just like I did. We all were struggling so bad and Wendy Dees did NOT care one bit. I still have PTSD from this experience. Seriously, my online class started with around 23 people and there were only 9 people left when I dropped the course. TERRIBLE!!!! Why would anyone want to take a course or classes through this Teacher/community college when they truly do not care if you pass or fail the course? I met with her and the Dean to try to find a resolution to this, and there was none. Ms. Dees covered every reason I presented with a sorry excuse. The Dean, who is supposed to act as a NEUTRAL person to resolve the issue, completely and utterly 100% took Wendy Dees side. The WHOLE time. Incredibly unprofessional. I emailed Wendy Dees to let her know that I was most likely going to drop the class to see if she had any last pieces of advice and never heard back from her. The whole experience was completely awful, I can’t stress it enough. DO NO TAKE WENDY DEES AND DO NOT TAKE ANY CLASSES AT COASTAL ALABAMA IN MONROEVILLE! You will thank me later. They are a complete joke! They make things WAY more complicated and unfair than it needs to be. It’s a community college. Not Harvard. I’ve spoken to several Professors, students and my Advisor and they all agreed that this was a terrible experience and sounded like a joke.

Worst Community College ever, They take all your money for tuition's and books then they give you $50 parking ticket, because my decal is expired, not even a warning is given. What a joke. Also, picking out classes and knowing the next step is a miracle. Bold Head guy black guy that works at the admin is useless. He gave me wrong classes and he gets irritated quickly.

If you ever need paperwork filled out you better send it in 6 months in advance because I sent in paperwork to be completed on 12/1/2018 and I received a call on 12/19/2018 that there was something missing on paper. WTH it takes 19 days to notify somebody that something needs to be corrected, now I probably will not be able to use scholarship for next semester- very very aggravated to say the least!!

I work at this College, and I can say that students are first here. While we are always working to better our processes, we always have students first in mind. As an alumni, I have so much pride for this College. I did two years here, transferred to Troy, then completed my Master's at South Alabama. Wow, what would I have done without getting my feet wet here first! The picture attached is the spot where I met my friends every day before class when I was a student. I knew a ton of faces, and it made adjusting to college so easy. It's so exciting that we (the College) serve as the local community college for so many!
