Overall Rating:

a bunch of crooks. Charging people nearly $700 for classes that were never signed up for or attended. Disputed the charges several times and they denied each dispute. holding transcripts hostage and not allowing you to continue classes until the fraudulent charges were paid.

What TERRIBLE customer service. I have to take a summer course here and I am paying a grand to take a chemistry course, and no one can answer the line or get back to your calls or emails, even after being persistent numerous times. I am not one to want to leave a poor review, but this is absolutely unacceptable as I am highly dissatisfied with my experience with these offices on campus, in particular the Bursar's office with a woman named Leticia who cannot give me the time of day and is incredibly rude and impatient on the phone to explain anything to me. I ask a question, "look it up", or I get an impatient and very annoyed sounding response! I know this is a state school and these are state employees who could care less and I am a number to them, but I go to another state school full-time and the staff always go out of their way, and are genuine and helpful in their conversations with students. The people I dealt with were ill-mannered and their higher-ups must address. I will not be taking another summer course here after this experience.Will update my review to include my experience in the class, after I have taken it.

Pretty good. Just wish that they'd lower to tuition cost. Also, a lot of the professors don't seem to care.

Overall Rating:

Miserable place. Professors don’t care. They have people who don’t speak English teaching the math department. Those in the financial building are miserable, uninformative and rude. Nobody communicates!! Financial Tells you one thing and the counselors say something different. Totally unorganized and made my college experience a miserable one. They prioritize minorities and even questioned me on why I’m not on financial aid. Teachers WILL fail you if you don’t agree with their POLITICAL views. Community college is supposed to be affordable, but they manage to shake you down for every little penny. Save your time and money and go somewhere where they actually CARE about student success.
