Our school has an ACE center for extra help for the students and it is readily available for anyone that needs it for any reason. If you have any problem with something in class and need a little tutoring there are teachers in there to aid students.

There are plenty of student labs, and computers available on site for the students. Each student has their own amount of printing allowed and it is usually a great amount for everything you need to print out for your classes. I have never had any problems finding an available computer, and never a problem with a printer or any ink problems. The computer network is always ready and available. I would have nothing bad to say about this issue at all.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Total headache! Even when receiving veteran tuition waivers or FAFSA. The school is a pain in the neck and it seems nobody in any office wants to help you. They just send you to another office that you find out that you don't need to be in. They try to get you in and out as fast as they can with no regards to your best interests.

Ive never had a problem with any of the professors or signing up for classes, but the financial aid process and student services feels like a game of ring around the rosie. You are sent to multiple different offices only to be told that you need to get paperwork from somewhere else or you need to go to another office and not this one. Other than that, every thing else runs smoothly.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The low tuition makes this college very affordable. One thing is that students are eligible for a full semester bus pass so we don't have to pay for transportation. In order to receive financial aid, it's best if the whole process is done early since it's first come first serve. It's understandable that the financial aid process changes every year, making the application process a bit confusing at first. Since I'm under financial aid, I know the money I'm getting is being well spent with the education that I'm receiving. We do have a lot of good teachers who really want us to succeed and who as always willing to help us in any possible way, and I know that in the future, all the effort put into classwork will definitely be worth it.

When I first started college, Computer Science was my major. Classes were flexible and easy, but after some time in college, something told me that this major wasn't really my thing, that it wasn't really what I wanted to do. Since then, I decided to change my major to something where I could help other people, where I could always make a change in somebody else's life. That's then I decided to go for Nursing. To get in the Nursing program, I have to take a variety of classes (especially science classes). The Nursing program is very competitive; that's why it's best to try hard and get a 4.0 GPA. For what I've heard, in the Nursing program there's a lot of work to do and little to no time, but it doesn't mean that's impossible. With a lot of effort and motivation, becoming a Registered Nurse is possible.

What I love about this community college is the fact that is located in the same town where I live, and since I don't have personal transportation, with the city bus I have the opportunity to go to college (a dream that many people cannot achieve due to financial issues or distance). Their classes are super flexible, and I don't have to stick with a bad teacher because it's the only time that this class is taught; for most classes, they're offered seven days a week, and even twice a day. If there's a desire to go to college (either right after high school or going back to school after a certain time), Naugatuck Valley Community College is the right choice.

The computer network mostly works.There are some days when its slower because so many people on it at once.There are always computers available in the computer lab or library.They give you 200 free pages with your account,and you will never run out,unless you have to print there all the time.
College Junior 2013-07-13T22:34:05Z
I think online classes are good,but I prefer being in the classroom, or hybrid class.
College Junior 2013-07-13T22:23:07Z
The school has very good resource on topic that you want to know.
College Junior 2013-06-10T11:12:42Z
The main reason I chose this school is because of how flexible the class schedules are and the fact that it is close to home. Also, the cost of tuition Is one of the cheapest I can find.

There is a wide range of students at NVCC. From the old to the young, from black to pale, there is every kind of student. The most difficult of it all is the language barriers. I've had a class where it's very hard to understand what the other student was saying.
College Sophomore 2013-06-07T07:21:00Z
I haven't gotten to the chance to test out the career services in NVCC. I will not be able to grade this part.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
My teachers are all wonderful, I have nothing to complain about. Many really support the students and always helped us. I've had wonderful teachers.The grade is lowered mostly because of the financial aide process.The financial aide office always send me back with more papers, it's a constant issue. This year I did everything and I still manage to have some issues. The people are generally kind, but getting my financial aide is no walk in the park. My parents are absolutely tired and angry about it. I'm just hoping I get the money I need, it's hard paying for school out of my pocket. This year I have a checklist, and I'm slowly going down it. Hopefully this helps my financial aide!

If you want to transfer to another school in the future, this might be the school for you. NVCC has transfer fairs all the time. However, NVCC is known for their nursing program so all the science courses fly out the window. Another headache is most students register for courses at mid-night online. Yes, courses run out of space THAT fast.

The technology at this school can be unreliable at times. The network on my laptop would disconnect at least once a day. There were times I would consider buying myself a mobile hotspot because of this problem. However, if you choose to use the computer labs, the computer network performance will be much better. There is a problem with the computer labs, that is they are always hot and uncomfortable. Printing is is average, you get 200 pages per semester.

The school does fall short on athletics, but there are many other clubs one can join. There is the literary art magazine "Fresh Ink". There are also Honor societies one can join. There are plenty of clubs one can join. The campus overall is a comfortable depending on the location. One can stay there to study or just do homework. The school does have a decent library, and the staff is very helpful.
Recent Alumnus 2013-05-31T19:42:55Z
The school does give plenty of sources. In fact, the student fees cover tutoring should you ever need it. Most of professors are actually very knowledgeable. The school has a transfer fair every semester, and they also have a career center to give their students some direction on their academic choices.
Recent Alumnus 2013-05-31T19:38:59Z
I know, It's a tough grade. The reason for the grade, is because there are a lot of students who register for course and never bother to show up. This is a big issue at this school, and has gone to the point that all professors have to take attendance the first two weeks of every semester to see who shows up for their courses. The school is an average school. Student show up for an education for the most part. Other students come to warm up seat.

I entered the digital arts program to further my career in video production which I am already well on my way to doing working in danbury and surrounding areas. I decided it would be a good idea to go back to school so I could learn more about my field. When I got to class I realized that although I had a awful video production class at my highschool I was not paying for it and naugatuck offers nothing more then a highschool class taught by a highschool teacher who was clearly just trying to double dip his curriculum and take on a college night class once a week. Software was outdated and nothing was learned that could not be self taught unless you honestly know nothing about computers. My suggestion would be to rent the new 6.0 adobe premier software and learn yourself. The industry is changing extremely fast believe me. Almost everything I was taught was outdated and I got tired of telling my teacher how it is done "now adays" Ill send anyone the assignments for the class so you can do them yourself emails Hobbskw@yahoo.com. My thoughts are due to low class sizes I was more or less tricked into thinking the class would benefit me. Further more I searched for the teacher of the advanced classes and his professional videos are good although I would not consider them to be anything I would model after.
Hope this helps I know its a total diss and I have a different view going into school then most but the class was a nightmare for me the idea of taking time to make a childish skit or moc news report and having to pay for it while im turning down actual jobs in the field valued at 100s of dollars a hour is insane. I hope this has helped anyone seriously pressing a career in the video production field.

Well i have not been at this school long, but I think the school is ok when it comes to the human services field. The program is fairly new to the school and from what I am told it is still improving. I really don't expect a lot from a community college with the lack of funding, but it is not a bad place to start your college career.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
