I would definitely choose Montana Tech and the Highlands College if I could do it all over. I think that perhaps I would have chosen to come here first instead of the University of Montana. The professors are more in-tune with student needs, are more available to assist, and overall seem to genuinely care about how well their students do.

The resources on campus are readily available for student use and are of generally great quality. Occasionally it can be hard to find a free computer in the library, but other than that, things have been great.

Printing on campus is very easy to do. Most of the computer labs are easy to use and readily accessible, though sometimes the library can be a bit crowded. Wireless is touchy; it is hard to find a reliable connection and strong signal in some places on campus.

The classes are what I expected; nothing more, nothing less. There's a sizable workload but it is easy to get double degrees because so many programs share so many classes.

Job Search Engine Is Useless – There is a Job Service called JobWire that is strongly tied with the school. It's absolutely worthless. It has maybe three listings for the entire state.

Hybrid Classes Can Have Issues – I don't have any classes that are purely online, but I do have hybrid classes which are in person and online. The biggest problem I find with this is some teachers will post assignments online that they don't mention in person. This irks me personally because all my classes are on a computer as it is, so I'd like to spend time off the computer once I know my homework is done. The flip side is sometimes a teacher will forget to post something or the system doesn't work at times, both of which I have experienced. Most annoying though is the use of access cards, which make it harder to buy and sell books.

Flexibility is going down at the school. There are no longer exceptions permitted on homework from some teachers for things like hospital stays or emergencies. Many credits don't transfer, and attendance is now graded making working with work schedules harder since many classes are only offered at one time.

There's a computer lab and the library, but there's not much extra stuff like athletic/gym facilities. There is a food/bookstore, but the food is overpriced for what it is and with a supermarket down the block there's not much point in buying from them. There is not a theatre but there is an auditorium-like room for presentations. There are no dorms, but there's several areas to sit and do homework without leaving campus.

Library Computers Are Slow – Recently the school changed their computers, so I'm not sure how bad it is now, but typically it would take at least 10 min for the computers to boot up. Plus this year the internet was messed up for the first couple weeks of classes.

Price of Education – I chose this school because I believed it would be my cheapest option. However, I still found apparently I'm too poor for them. The Health Insurance is still pretty worthless but you have to have something. Lovely, isn't it? I'm aware that other schools would charge me more in some areas but when a student loan covers tuition and leaves me to pay out pocket for books I dig for on Ebay rather than paying the ridiculous amount at the school, I'm not that impressed. Yet now I can't even do that since they are insistent on using "bundle" books now with access codes to the homework, which feels rather obnoxious since teachers are already being paid to be teachers. Come up with your own homework and stop wasting what little money I have. At least use the questions already in the book.

It's a great place to go to school. The staff is very helpful. I haven't started classes as of yet, but the enrollment process was made effortless by the kind and caring folks in enrollment services.

I have given the Montana Tech- College of Technology an A because it is a great school to attend. They have so many social events that they prepare to get us student more involved in the school and how to be in demand. The instructors are great, they really see the students eye to eye.

The associates of science is what I am now in and it is a great way to get all of the general credits you need, so later I can transfer them over to the Bachelor of Education.
College Senior 2012-11-27T22:43:15Z
Giving the Montana Tech- College of Technology this grade is because the people there are very easy going, including the instructors. The class schedule, for me at least, enables me to still be able to do the things I need to do outside of school. The curriculum has a vast variety of different majors for just about any one to choose what they would like to do.

On Your Own Time – I like that we can do it on our own time. We can see things due at a later date and either chose to be ahead of it or wait until last minute, which I like because I am determining my level of stress.

Uofm '12 – My school has a little of everyone which is nice because I don't feel uncomfortable when I am alone. Everyone is helpful and nice its almost like we all share a little teamwork throughout the campus.

No Problem – I've not ever experienced any problems with the network. It seems a little slow, but that is to be expected.

Older Working – Most are working people with families and are time challenged.

Great Classes – I really enjoy the classes. Equipment is very up to date and really helps learning computer and network technology. The professors are very engaging and though the college restricts them to only a few office hours a week, they are more than happy to schedule an hour or two out of their work week to come in and walk you through a subject.

Post-Grad Services! My college success class meets at the career fair to meet with potential employers. She has us making resumes at the moment. She makes us do group work on projects to interact with students also.

On our campus we have a learning center! Which is the only thing I have really been to so far. It has computers, a library, and tutors in the learning center. And also there is a bookstore on campus, a coffee house for those early mornings and a deli!

My Online Experience! I currently have only one online class, but I love it. There's an easier work load. I can do it when I have the time and I can also be home with my son. My algebra class also does some assignments online too. You can work ahead or stay with the teacher, and you also feel like you have more one on one with your teacher when you e-mail them about a problem. The one thing I really like about my algebra problems being online is that I can go back and keep doing an assignment until i get the grade I want, so that's a huge advantage compared to a classroom.

The student body consists of what the town has. The school is considered the cheaper option for college in town and has no dorms, so the students don't come from very far away. The town itself is not extremely diverse ethnically since Montana has a small population. However, age wise there's many different generation in attendance. I don't discuss politics or religion with strangers, so I wouldn't know about that.

Most Professors Consider Other Obligations – For the most part, many teachers seem to acknowledge that a student does have other classes and work outside their own class. This is reflected not in the workload itself, but in the due dates. However, these teachers then become obsessed with deadlines, sometimes accepting no reason for delay short of being hospitalized. This is fine for the most part, but can be harder on students that work and have more classes. Attendance is also enforced and graded with vigor, though some more lenient teachers will offer ways to make up a lost day.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I have been recieving some financial aid over the past two years. I appreciate the aid very much, but Montana Tech is not very organized in getting everything taken care of. I feel like everytime there is always something that did not get done and they are telling me mid-semester. They need more specific guidlines for the process.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
