Student Reviews and Ratings for Passaic County Community College
I don't really have a problem with the teachers or the education, but registration complete sucks. Yesterday, I went to change my schedule for next semester. First, you need to do a line just to let know the front desk what you need to do, even tho you know already. Then you need to go to the third floor, do another line, to add or drop classes. Then, go again to the first floor, do line to confirm that. So in the first floor some adviser couldn't fix my schedule and he thought he knew what was the problem. He clearly told me go again to the third floor fix that and come back direct to me (he mean to don't do line again). I did it, but guess what when I went again to him he didn't honor his word and some "represent" and "security" came to me to tell me to do line again, and wait. I told them I am just doing what he said (adviser) and none listen to me, none help me and they were so rude to me just because I tried to explain my point too. So I waited for him and he said he fixed my schedule, I asked If I can check first, he said do it in another desk, so I checked and It was wrong as I thought, I came back and again the same, he told me to go back to the third floor so it was enough for me I told him several times that I knew what was the problem, but he never allow me to talk, he never try to listen to me, he never fix my problem, so I don't know what kind of adviser he is. We went to the third floor again and some lady fix what I thought since the beginning that was wrong. I don't know what kind of school don't listen to their students!!! They need to fix all the registration mess that they have, and listen to their students.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Terrible organization, security is very surely and on a power trip. Wish I could give it zero starsSource of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I personally am okay with this School. Employees there (in the Financial Department, Academic Advisors) are somewhat mediocre. It's as if they just started working there. Overall, what saved my experience while attending that school, were the professors. I was extremely blessed to have received great ones. Professor Masri, Amanda in particular. It would be better off if they allowed students to reenroll while simultaneously paying off any debt owed. They don't let you do it unless it's all paid off which blows.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I think this is the worst place to go!!! like if you have the chance to go to another community college go, do not waste your time here!! i've been here since 2014 and every year they have a freaking problem with my financial aid... last week I went twice in one day because they dont tell you exactly what you need, so you have to bring one paper, you go bring it to then find out when you come back that you need something else. Im so over this school cant wait to transfer already. after I went las week to bring everything they said I needed to bring now I checked again and supposedly they need something else now!! Im really considering on suing this school because I want to know what they doing with student's financial aid!! Im so tired of the rudeness of the staff too...Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Well... I don’t know how the school is, because I wasn’t able to get in. The people in charge of the admission department are very incompetent and useless. They will make you come back and forth one million times, get one million documents (I spent a lot of money in getting papers mailed to me from Spain). They are also very disrespectful with the schedules: it’s like the students are the last thing in their agenda. Their knowledge about admissions and proccess is very poor, I would say they have none. I hope you guys think twice before getting in this school.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
