I love that WKCTCS has online classes so I don't have to always drive there, which is 50 miles from me.

The facilities aren't bad. It's always clean and fresh looking.

As long as you pay attention to when class scheduling for the next semester begins, you should almost always be able to get in classes you did without them getting filled up completely and closed out. If you wait until the last minute to register or don't make an appointment with your adviser, you may be out of luck.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
WKCTC is by far a lot cheaper than a university. The credits you earn are well worth that $400 a class and with financial aid being available to those who don't have much of an income, it is greatly appreciated.

I just finished my 6th semester at WKCTC. I had a baby last August and was able to stay in school throughout my pregnancy and also while he was a newborn on up to him being 9 months old now. The class scheduling is very flexible and the instructors that are hired by WKCTC are over all very wonderful and smart individuals. They are very caring and professional in a classroom setting. I love going to college there and will continue my education as far as I can.

I chose West Kentucky because of their online program. I work 40 hrs/week and have a 6 year old. Their flexibility has been very helpful in my being able to get a degree and see my family.

Overall I've taken 2 semesters & 7 classes online. I've enjoyed every class I've taken and the teachers have responded quickly to any emails I've sent.

The printers don't work when I try to use them. They say we have wireless internet but I have yet to be able to use it.

It's pretty good for a community college. Definitely saving me money in the long run.
College Senior 2013-03-18T18:44:49Z
The library is outdated, there are not a lot of books to choose from. The online resources that they pay for (well I pay for them with my tuition) are decent, ProQuest is helpful. Since it's a community college there isn't much of a student center or campus activities.
College Senior 2013-03-18T18:42:56Z
The professors (most of the ones I have had) do not care about helping, they seem uneducated and need to be updated. The advisers are not very helpful, I have only had one good one and she is not even my assigned adviser. They are very cheap. The recommended textbooks are not very helpful and have many spelling errors, I'm not sure who wrote them.

If a person takes an online class from WKCTC, they are pretty much guaranteed an A. The classes I have had have not been challenging.

The teachers are good about getting to know you and working with you. The classes are small (too small in my opinion), and pretty easy.
College Freshman 2013-03-13T17:07:14Z
The students are what to be expected at a Community College. Divers in age, but not much else. You can make friends easy, but most students are not very outgoing, smart, or motivated.
College Freshman 2013-03-13T17:06:10Z
Your experience is what you make of it. For my experience, I was not happy here. I was a Middle College student, so my reviews may be completely different from others. I found that the courses weren't very difficult and barely pushed the students. Almost no one gets involved on campus, and you would barely know we have any sort of clubs/organizations. Students just do their class work and go home. The school did get in the top 5 IN THE NATION by the Aspen Institute, but no one cares and acts like it's no big deal. So they have something going on to get that ranking... but I didn't see it. The only think I even like about the school is the Middle College and no classes on Fridays.
College Freshman 2013-03-13T17:03:22Z
Scheduling classes isn't that bad. Teachers work with you when they can. And most classes can be done online. It's made to be convenient to single parents, etc. so you can figure out what works for you.
College Freshman 2013-03-13T16:59:21Z
Most teachers know what they're talking about but usually don't hold the highest degree in their field. (A lot aren't ever professors yet.) There is plenty of tutoring services if you need it and the teachers are more than happy to work with you. The course work is pretty easy for the average student though. Some classes only require 4 exams a semester, and some classes requires a heavy work load. But it is not hard to have a high GPA here. I haven't taken any technical training classes, so I can't comment much on those. We also have University of Kentucky Engineering here, which is where Engineering majors can get a bachelors degree from UK here with half the cost. It's become pretty popular. We also have the Challenger Learning Center for children around the area. I've heard the online classes aren't bad, and registration has it's ups and downs like all colleges.

It's Paducah, Kentucky. So the majority of students are white. There are some African Americans. And not much else. I'm not trying to be negative, but the students are at a community college for a reason--they aren't too bright. There are quite a bit of students who are fresh out of high school and planning to transfer. There are also plenty of people who are coming back to college, who have full time jobs and are parents. So the school is somewhat diverse, but academically, the students are low-tier. If you did very well in high school, I would talk you out of going to a CTC. It's cheap, but your two years here will drive you crazy.

The library is excellent, I can always use it for research and studying time.
College Senior 2013-03-12T18:27:23Z
It has a great student center just in wrong part of campus for me
College Senior 2013-03-12T18:24:42Z
I have spoken to alot of people who have already graduated and they were put in job placement from our program director
College Senior 2013-02-28T13:42:38Z
WKCTC has excellent resources, however the computers are extremely slow at times and it can be very frustrating. Other than that, the library is full of books and documents used for research. I'm very proud of my college!

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I have no complaints about the cost of tuition. I think my education is well worth the money put into it. The majority of my financial aide comes from the FAFSA.
College Junior 2013-02-19T22:18:58Z
I have taken multiple online classes. In my opinion, online classes are easier than the classroom experience. My main problem was remembering when everything is due. I enjoy online classes because you can usually work ahead of the due dates. When I e-mail my instructor about problems with homework they usually e-mail me back immediately.

In nursing the courses are challenging but each lesson is preparing us for practice. All of our professors have been where we are and are very supportive and helpful.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
