Overall I had a good experience at NSCC. There was some very helpful teachers. The staff in records, financial aid and administration are very helpful and so much faster than other universities in the area. The facility was nice and kept clean. While the parking in front could get full there was always plenty of parking on the back lot.

I'd give it 0 stars if I could. Let's just say this, there was only 1 professor that actually did her job. Everybody else didn't teach anything. They just have you do everything online, which is a really bad platform.It's confusing, professors don't care, and if you go through the disability program, they wont honor it that well. When trying to talk to your student adviser, mine didn't do it unless you make an appointment, even if they're not doing anything at the time. Appointments can be 2-3 weeks out, when you just need to ask a question. They just want your money in the end. If you try to switch colleges, which I did, they messed up my paperwork 4 times, resulting in me missing a term in my other college because it took them over 2 months to fix. I would never recommend this school to anybody at all. Worst experience in a college. They even have study halls for a specific class you are taking. You are required to be there, which is fine. But if you fail the class that the study hall is there for, both classes you get an F. It's a bad system, and it sets you up for failure.
