I really enjoyed the online courses I took the last 2 quarters and would highly recommend them. I would suggest making sure your instructor is familiar with the program first however because one professor was new to the system and she deleted the entire classes final essay and peer reviews one day before they were due. That was frustrating! Otherwise great experience and I would do it again without a thought.

The courses that are available and not available during certain quarters makes competition fierce to get into certain courses. I find that less than appealing and stressful. Thank God for my advisor and some fairly flexible professors.

I'm a nursing major and again with certain courses only offered one quarter a year it makes it very difficult to get into those classes. I have an excellent advisor however and she has really helped with solutions. The professors have also been super personable and really bonded on a personal level.

I wish certain courses were offered more than one quarter a year so that when scheduling courses there wasn't so much pressure to rearrange your schedule in order to stay on course with your degree requirements. It would cut down on staff time in administration also.

I have only taking one online course at Centralia College in which I failed miserably. There wasn't anyone I could turn to for help, the assignments were all over the place, I was never guided through on-line course and I was left confused, alone, and with an over abundance of unanswered questions. Now when I came back and was in a class setting there was also a programs instituted within the class for online assignments. There was a lot of communication and help. I really liked the online assignments because they were accommodating to my busy schedule.

I will be majoring in Nursing. The workload, curriculum, and availability is very stressful and unforgiving. I am not in the Nursing program yet, however, as a student completing my pre-req's I have a lot of pressure to be perfect and to never fall less than perfect.
College Sophomore 2013-08-27T00:13:52Z
I believe there isn't enough emphasis put on the student. Its as though admin and counselors are there to get you started but not see you through, I feel as though the professors are the same way. For the majority of my classes I have sent professors e-mails or voice messages and have not received a response. Once in a while I will come across a phenomenal professor who shines light upon everyone else and my college duties stress. I, however, hardly ever see these professors stick around. I'm not sure if there is a flaw in the system, however, it would be nice to feel valued as a student and to know the staff here at Centralia College would like to see me be successful.

Most of my online classes were easy but I had to figure a lot out on my own how to do things, how to access different resources, and I had one class that gave me way more work than any on campus class I have ever had, and I had to figure it all out by myself.

The campus is great and there are a lot of places to go if you need help. The tutoring center has helpful teachers and the library people helped me with research. It's a beautiful campus with nice places to relax if the weather is good.
College Junior 2013-06-28T18:57:20Z
They have great resources for helping you study and tutoring. The librarians are helpful and the computer techs are helpful. The job center has tried to help me find a job but with little success.

My experiences with online classes were pretty smooth. Classes were easy to register for, and my teacher was usually pretty easy to get a hold of. the workload varies with each class, just talk to students about the professor or go to ratemyprofessor.com. The hardest part of online classes for me was peer-to-peer interaction. it was difficult for me to get a hold of the other students, which during group projects became frustrating.

I really enjoy Centralia College. The environment is nice and so are the people, but the academic flexibility is horrible. If you have a job, make sure it's flexible. Many classes are only offered at one or two times during the semester and only once a year! You can try and talk to your teacher, but most want you to be present during class, which is expected.
College Senior 2013-06-24T19:00:15Z
Usually the academic experience at Centralia college is pleasant as long as you get the right teachers and help. I've learned to get contacts and ask as many questions as possible. The school has a fairly small teaching staff, so some classes are only offered once a year. Human Anatomy and high math subjects are difficulties I've run into. The trick to this school is to get a good concealer that knows the yearly schedules well. Having a flexible job would help too, since many classes are only offered at a certain time.
College Senior 2013-06-24T18:53:13Z
I've always talked to people or went on ratemyprofessor.com to see what teachers to go to for the best experience. Because Centralia is a small school, many teachers teach multiple subjects, but some enjoy different subjects more. With my experience, I've learned that a teacher who enjoys his or her subject makes the class more interesting and long lasting! Don't be shy to ask around, most students and faculty are helpful and nice. I always go to the tutoring center and ask because many of them are students and have good insight.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
To be honest, it's all about who you know, and who you're dealing with. I think I get great education for tuition and financial Aid costs, but the paperwork and process can be frustrating. Because it's a small school, many workers behind the counter are student workers. Some know what they're doing and others do not. Just, in my experience, ask many questions and keep on them! Every mistake I've made was from lack of information and waiting on them to contact me because I was afraid of being annoying. This school will definitely teach you how to stand up for yourself! However, most of the people I've dealt with were respectful and nice, only some where flustering. Another tip is to enter all necessary paperwork ahead of schedule. The lack of knowledgeable staff makes the processing of your papers slow, sometimes to a halt with out letting you know. Just make sure you're in contact with them constantly and you'll get the results you want! :)

I am a art major, My classes when I started college I did not know what to expect, but since I have been a student I pretty much have gotten used to college life. No I do not live on campus, but I go to school anywhere from 2-4 days a week. I have had some business classes, all of my electives are full, I learned to take one maybe two hard classes and one or two lighter classes to balance out my schedule. With having a learning dissability getting my degree has taken me a lot longer to complete than most people. My core classes like math and english is where I struggle the most. I have about one year left of which I am still needing, math, english and a science or two and a couple of history classes.
College Junior 2013-06-12T00:32:50Z
I have taken both courses online and on campus at Centralia College. I like doing both, that way I can interact with other students and teachers, as well as I enjoy taking classes online for it gives me the freedom get online at my leasure. It frees up some time so I can take my family to appointments, plus I can go to my online class in my night clothes if I so choose to. I also like that the online classes you do not have to have paper on hand you can write all your assignments on the computer.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The financial aid process is pretty straight forward and the people in the financial aid office are very helpful and friendly.
College Sophomore 2013-04-29T03:14:52Z
I don't think there is a "typical" Centralia College student. We are all ages, a lot more ethnically diverse than I expected, and as far as I can tell everyone is just accepted for who they are.

This is the end of my second year attending Centralia College and I've had no problems with any of the staff here. Everyone is super helpful and more than willing to help answer any questions you may have. The classes that I've been enrolled in have been very interesting and anytime I needed help with something, my instructors were very helpful.
Recent Alumnus 2013-03-23T19:48:33Z
Ive applied there so many times but they do not help students very much. they are picky. so therefore i work out of the campus.
Recent Alumnus 2013-03-23T19:39:04Z
I wish that the all the classes were offered every quarter. Like A&P or microbiology is only available every winter or spring. It is hard to apply especially if the classes fill out so fast. I also wish the our adviser will talk to her nursing students individually that having them come in a group because it is a hassle and very confusing what classes you have to take next. They arent very helpful. they make you do you own thing.
Recent Alumnus 2013-03-23T19:32:19Z
I am a nursing student, and some of my classes are easy, but mostly hard because we have to learn all about the skills of being a nurse. I have taken Anatomy and Physiology and it is one of the very intense and overwhelming classes i have take my whole life. I am almost dont with all my classes, and our material is hands on so it is very interesting. The workload for nursing is very time consuming and brain frying.
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-26T04:51:03Z
The resouces on campus are farely decent. The only thing I would change is the advisor program. Some people have good experiences with their advisor, me on the other hand do not have a good experience with my advisor.
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-26T04:44:33Z
It is farely easy, I prefer face to face classes though.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
