Overall Rating:

It can be very difficult to get scholarships, a federal work-study job (even if you are eligible), a recommendation and even into certain classes if you are not one of the 'insiders.' On the plus side it is a flexible and relaxed atmosphere.

Overall Rating:

This college needs to be audited. I am currently a student here and have had such a poor experience with the financial aid office and business offices. Students don't receive their financial aid until 3-5 weeks into the semester (Keep in mind that the college takes their part out right away). If someone was relying solely on financial aid to buy books and other necessities for school they would be so far behind before receiving their aid. I also received a tuition waiver that ended up not being honored, and was not informed about it until classes already started. Something weird is going on here and students are being set up to fail from the start. On the other hand, professors have been great and have helped to accommodate me through this nightmare of a system.
