I think the workload is a lot, but not bad for a 2 year program. The professors are always there to help and to do tutoring sessions when needed. The teachers are pretty involved with the students. The registration process was a long process, including testing and interviews, but well worth it.

The professors are generally accessible during and even after business hours. The curriculum may be review for some students (algebra, basic communication, basic computer literacy, anatomy & physiology). The teachers are not experts in any field except radiography so the math, A&P, communications lectures come directly from the textbooks with little additional explanations. The registration process is automatic. The class size is good at 30 students. The workload consists of 8 classes the first semester and 6 classes the second semester. Externship goes from semesters 3 to 6 for four days a week and two classes one day a week on campus. Externship is working a full-time day job without pay. It is difficult to work more than part-time a couple of days a week on top of extern.

Since the pre-requisites are built into the program, some or most of the information may be review for some students with previous college experience. Transfer credits are accepted but dropping below full-time status may affect financial aid. The class schedule is predictable for the most part. No one teacher is an expert or has a degree in the subjects being taught (biology, math, communications, anatomy & physiology). Since I have college experience and a strong math background, the lack of knowledge by the teachers was frustrating many times. Assignments are accepted after the due dates and are given full credit many times, which is unfair to students who work hard to turn everything in on time. The academics are not overly difficult. The difficult part is the workload, time requirements, and multiple tests each week on top of working a job.

Classes Are Difficult – The first two semesters of the program are very difficult. Students put in about 32 hours a week for studying apart from class. There was a lot of information that we needed to learn. It was a huge workload and took a lot to motivte yourself to get through it, but it has been worth it so far.

Interesting but Could Be Better – I really like my major of veterinary assisting but the classes go really fast and we have a lot to learn, so sometimes I think we aren't learning everything we need to know or getting the practice we need to do things well. The good thing is that all of the classes are focused on vet assisting and there are no pointless elective classes.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
