I request my tstc transcript send to another college last week, and then yesterday I contact the college and they said they haven't received my transcript from tstc. I don't know if I put in right or just got lost in the mail.

Poor experience. Though the school claims to provide instructors with "real world experience" in the field they are teaching, it is simply not so. My C# instructor (by their own admission later) did not know the language or even how to use the primary tool (Visual Studio). My Microsoft SQL instructor had to be shown by the students not only how to install the software, but how to install the test data and create users and databases. To be fair, my C++ instructor was amazing. The lessons started with what was in the book but after that brief lecture, the rest of the lesson was what we will see out in the field.

Went here for the Diesel Equipment program and had a job two days after graduating for 21$ hr 40 hrs a week at Ryder. Some people think this school is a joke but it's what you make out of it. If you are interested and willing to learn, the instructors will help you but if you are lazy and want things handed to you, they're not going to waste their time. Small town college and I liked the atmosphere. I definitely recommend for people who like hands on learning.

This place is definitely what you make of it. Not your traditional college, its about 75% hands on labs to about 25% of actual course work. You have to put in effort to fail a class. Everything you need is given to you and all the teachers have worked in that specific field that they are teaching. They have free tutoring given by the school. The Job Fairs at this school were actually bigger than the ones given by Baylor. Companies come here to hire because they know that this school puts out students that are ready to work. I took the robotics program and I had a job before I graduated from the school. Lots of opportunity here and your trade will allow you to live wherever you please. Great school all the way around and a hell of alot cheaper than any 4 year college or university. I came out the gate making great money and all of my classmates have done the same. 2 thumbs up!!

If you're interested in Web Design and Development, SAVE YOUR MONEY. You will not be gaining any marketable skills that will make you an asset to any company, let alone the ability to produce modern web applications or designs. Their staff and administration are too comfortable with mediocrity. The teachers know very little in terms of actual coding and will probably pass you just for being in class and doing the work, whether or not you actually learn anything.Also their job placement is a joke unless you're coming out of their industrial training programs, the people working in there think having a resume and using Indeed is all you need.PS: I was an honor student with very high marks and skills. I consider myself very competent and realistic in terms of higher learning. My opinions do not come from a lack of trying or personal grudges towards the staff. I am simply trying to keep people from wasting their time and money.
