My school has done an excellent job of partnering with local businesses and health care facilities in providing employment oppurtunities while taking classes and post-degree long term employment. Through the work study program the oppurtunity to have a personal advacate for students to connect with linked carreers is very accesible.

For a 35 year old home schooled single father the thought of going to school was daunting to me. I knew if I wanted to reach my career goal I had to attend. From my first day of the process I was made to feel as if they wanted me to attend this school and succeed at my goals. All my misgivings and nervousness dissapeared almost immidiatly after the first day of class. I found that not only was I not alone in my type situation but that my fellow students were open and friendly, and my professor's were most helpfull in explaining their expectations and how to obtain success in there given classes. My time here at ACTC has been well spent and they have left me with no doubt that I can and will be able to achieve my goals.

Although my school does not offer majors in my selected field, psychology, they have given me the right tools to put me on the path to transfer. the gen-ed classes are valuable in that they are preparing me for future university level classes. I am in the ready-to-work program and the job availabilty has been flexible enogh to work with my schedule, along with understanding supervisors, they have given me the time to study without being looked at as not doing my job as with public employment.

The advising office here at my school does a top rate job of helping shape your schedule and class requirements to fit my single working father schedule.

I have had a good experience to date with my classes, instructers, and availability of advising at my current school. They make it obvious in many ways that they want you to succeed, and for one like me; being out of school for almost 20 years this was unexpected and exciting to know that there is plenty of help and encouragment along the way.

I had never been to a public school setting in my life so starting back to school at age 35 was a new and seemingly daunting experience. I opted out of online class options, of which my school does offer many, to get the in-class experience that I never had the oppurtunity to have in grade school. In the future I will be looking closely at this option.

I chose this college because of its flexibility to attend the class schedule I needed.
College Sophomore 2013-06-06T02:13:00Z
I fee the online class is great. It helps me juggle my classes with my everyday responsibilities.
College Sophomore 2013-06-06T02:11:13Z
I rate this college a A-.most of the student body is like myself. Mid-age working class people who is seeking education to secure a new career challenge.

The majority of the people in my school are working parents with families to worry about. many of us have a lot on our plates at any single time. Yet we all are there trying to better ourselves in order to provide a better future for those families. Most of the students are friendly and willing to help you out if they are able.
College Senior 2012-11-01T01:24:46Z
The professors at the school are more than willing to work with the student body. ecspecially since most of them are not straight out of high school and have families and other tthings to deal with on a daily basis. They are more than willing to take some time out for you to help in any way that they may.

I have been taking all the core classes required to enter into the engineering program. The workload isnt unbairable but you definately have to dedicate yoursself to school and not much of anything else. The curriculum is intense with all the maths and sciences which you have to have but when you want something good then you have to work hard to get it.

All of the professors i have had were very student involved and understood and was generally here to help. The only thing is some professors take their time getting back to you when you email them.

Typical Community College – I didn't find anything extremely unique about this school. It was comfortable due to it's almost rural setting and small class sizes, but the lack of parking is inconvenient, the teachers that truly try to teach you are undervalued, and you are forced to deal with advisors who are annoyed that they are REQUIRED to advise you. I'd consider going to ACTC again, but not for the same program. It'd be for a casual learning experience, if anything.

Never Bothered – I didn't even try to go through the career center for help. My career is a bit hard to come by in this area, because there are two schools churning out Surgical Tech grads each year, and there's a limited number of hospitals apply with.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
No Problem If You Don't Procrastinate – I had no trouble at all with my financial aid, but I went looking for answers to my questions instead of waiting for someone to just throw the answers in my lap, as well. All my paperwork was done early, and I always called or visited when I had a question. Everyone was very quick and cordial with me. The students that I hear gripe about financial aid wait til the last minute to get their aid, and by then everyone's going all at once to get things straightened out, so there's a long wait to speak with someone. Don't wait.

Typical Post-High School Students – Many young kids just trying to get a quick degree and do what they can to get through the classes with as little effort as possible. It's a different story with the people that are in actual programs, like nursing.

Bethlehem House of Bread – This program helps people obtain a Diploma in Christian Studies, and even go on to Ashland University. To obtain a degree and to on to preach, counsel.

It's All Good – I haven't had the displeasure of the transfer experience yet, so I don't know how that will work out. It seems that most people transfer ok, but I have heard some horror stories as well. The flexibility with classes is pretty good. They allow students to withdraw from classes up til midterm, or up to the final if the professor consents. Sometimes the slots available for some classes are not ideal, but with a small school sometimes they only have the money (and the students available needing to take a course) for 1 slot in the semester. So far there really has been no difficulties as far as scheduling and my advisor really knows what she is doing.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Close, No Cigar – I am not sure exactly how to grade the financial aid system since I really don't have anything to compare it to just yet. The process is rather straight forward and I have never found myself not getting funds or anything of that nature. I figure most of financial aid is decided upon by the governments more than the school itself. They really don't offer much in the way of financial aid outside of pell grants, subsidized and unsubsidized loans. I have so far been able to stay away from the unsubsidized loans, but it is really hard to live (even minimally) with the limited amount of resources available. Good students also have no extra benefits in financial aid. I'm a 4.0 student and I get the exact same help as someone who doesn't really try and is pulling in Cs all the time.

Good Community College – There are some things I would rate A+++. The Student Support Services program for poor students, first time students, and/or students with not history of family going to college is exceptional. I have also had some professors that I believe would be amazing no matter what college or university they may be teaching at. As a matter of fact, I believe that without meeting a few of the professors that I have, that I would not be the person I am today. ACTC has boosted my confidence considerably and I find my self easily excelling and I cannot wait to move on and start the Optometry program I am working so hard towards. They have truly been helping me lay a very solid foundation and I am very grateful for that. The really bad points (and I should emphasize really bad) would be the horribly unhealthy food options in the cafeteria as well as no sort of exercising facility what so ever. The local YMCA does give discounts to students, but it really is just an added expense that sometimes I hope I can afford.

My Surg Tech Major – I am not really sure, how the program will be. I am just applying, the program will start january 2012.

My overall experience at ACTC has been quite nice. It is a small campus, so there isn't much confusion as to where classes are, I would choose ACTC again, if I could do it all over again, because it is a high quality education, without the high price tag.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
