Student Reviews and Ratings for South College-Asheville

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

This school is very expensive & with that being said should have the greatest teachers out there and the most help. We shouldn’t have to deal with anything as students because it’s an arm and a leg just to go here. I think if this school tried helping students more instead of making sure we all didn’t quit a program because our new teacher is ridiculous, that would be helpful. Care less about money and more about the teachers you hire along with the education and compassion of the students!

This is a great school to attend, a bit pricey but overall very good. I been attending since 2017 and have never had any issues. I like the small classes because that allows you to have more attention from the professors. All the staff is super friendly and help you reach your goals.

This school is a scam! They will tell you what ever they think you want to hear but only care about taking your money! I would strongly suggest looking else where for your education.

Attending this school has made going back for a 2nd degree easy, and comfortable. The staff is focused, and everyone who supports you there wants to see you be successful. In addition, they provide a ton of resources to help you be successful. If you are looking for smaller class sizes, approachable professors, and an overall good learning institution, this is a great place.

I've been at South College for about a year now, still have another year to go. So far I love it. It's a private college, so it is small with small classes. The teachers are awesome; they really value your education. It is very expensive, but worth it. The credentialing you receive is higher than other schools in the area. I went to AB Tech to register for classes, after three consecutive days of financial aid giving me the run-around, I was told I didn't qualify and would have to pay out-of-pocket. I made an appointment with a South College admin rep on a Saturday, spent half a day getting financial aid and registration squared away, and started classes the second Monday after. I can't speak for the legal or business fields, but I highly recommend this school to anyone looking to go into the health field.
