Student Reviews and Ratings for Jefferson State Community College
I just called it kept ringing. It sounded like someone picked up but hung up the phone. If I could rate zero stars I would.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
As with anything in life some will be bitter and some will be sweet. as you mature you learn to accept both learn and keep moving on, if it doesn,t go your way that day try another day another way.Jeff state may not be the school for you, but it was for me!!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I wouldn’t even really give them one star, their financial aid employees look at you like you are stupid as soon as you walk in, and I’m a parent! And have a bad attitude if they have to help you or answer questions for you! My daughter has been told one way of doing something, then another tells her that’s wrong, do it another way....in the meantime paperwork is not being done right because of their advice. They don’t help at all and this is every semester, same drama or new. So sad to have to deal w office workers like them.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Just finished my first semester back in school and I'm extremely happy with my teachers and how much it cost. I've never done this well in school and I have to give some credit to the staff for that. That being said what is seen in some reviews here about the financial aid office and advising office there are some hiccups in the process. I did have a slight issue with transcripts being registered in but it was also a bit last minute and depending on the time of day you call it can be hard to get ahold of people. I still believe always going in person goes a long way and with me doing that I had no real issues getting set up in my classes.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
This is 1 of my main reasons I am trying to leave Jeff State & go to another college. I have never had these many issues with paperwork & advising at other colleges. I've been to 4 different colleges & I Just don't understand how they operate here. Trying to get financial aid on the phone is ridiculous.. Out of almost 4 years a person has actually answered me only twice when I have called financial aid. What sense does that make? I'm not being rude but this is my education here & they should treat their students better than that.. It is way too unorganized here at Jeff state when it comes to helping students as well as student records.. Don't even waste your time with this school because al they care about is money & not their students.. Also I had a death in my immediate family & I cannot believe some of these teachers actually acted like I just didn't want to be there after I have them an excuse form the funeral home. I am usually the 1st 1 in & never missed 1 day of class & I have small children so how dare them treat me that way.. I had to file an appeal because of the death in the family & now that I really need to file 1 due to health problems I can't do it. If I get accepted to another school I am done with Jeff state regardless of how far I am in my program. I just can't deal with the nonsense anymore.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
