The only thing I have had a problem with is meeting deadlines. I honestly did not know when some of the items were due. Thank goodness the teachers care and let me send it in with a penalty so it wouldn't be a Zero. Everything else is great.

I have not personally experienced this yet but I have heard several others commenting on the companies contacting them for employment. The petroleum technology department that I am in is a new program. They already have companies scouting for employment. I am so excited to be a part of this college and the opportunities it has.

I chose this school because of it is personable with its students. It has small classes and you are an individual not a number. I looked at several colleges and Western Texas was an easy choice for me. My english class is killing me but the other 4 classes have been great. This is a great college choice.

Help you to best suite your needs. Very friendly along with quick response.

Most were good but response time from the teachers are a little slow.
College Senior 2013-08-27T01:11:21Z
Good people, great teachers, and a good atmosphere.

As a dual credit student, I find that WTC is extremely flexible. I was able to complete 26 hours dual credit my junior year of high school and will finish my high school career with just under 40 credit hours. The credits that I am earning will transfer to a four year college. This will allow me to enter the university as a sophomore.

I am a dual credit student taking general studies classes in order to get my basic curriculum completed in an environment that is conducive to first year students.

Western Texas College has provided me with the opportunity to earn college credit prior to graduating high school at a very competitive cost. This is greatly reducing my overall educational expenses.
College Senior 2013-07-06T17:34:02Z
Although I am not a traditional student and only taking dual credit courses, I have found that the registration process is easy to understand and the access to assistance is adequate.
College Senior 2013-07-06T17:31:38Z
Again, I can't provide an adequate response because I am not a traditional student. The facilities that I have been exposed to are decent.
College Senior 2013-07-06T17:27:08Z
I can't provide an accurate rating for this element because I do not use campus resources. I am a dual credit student taking classes off campus.
College Senior 2013-07-03T01:28:38Z
The internet or system that they are on is awful. It is always slow or doesn't connect, and sometimes, it will kick you off. However, the instructors do not allow anyone to use this as a reason for late work. However, the computer lab is well organized and nice. You can only print if it's for that instructor's class though.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The tuition at WTC isn't outrageous. I see it as fairly decent for what you're getting. My education has been worth it thus far as well. They offer decent financial aid, but it is somewhat complicated. It helps to check out the website and ask lots of questions. Also, be aware of due dates!

Being a graphic design major at Western Texas College is fairly easy as long as you know how to manage your time. I work and go to school so it is sometimes hard, but the hours that the lab is open helps. They have three nights a week where the lab is open late for those who need extra time to work. The instructors are helpful and I basically have most of the things I need at my finger tips.
College Senior 2013-07-03T01:19:28Z
The campus resources aren't bad. Everything is very spread out, so unless that building is used for your major or sport, you probably won't visit it much. I am an art major so I know more about out art rooms; which are fairly decent.
College Senior 2013-07-03T01:16:56Z
Western Texas College has equal parts local students and international students. We have students from various countries as well as cities from the U.S. Most of the students are middle class.
College Senior 2013-07-03T01:12:07Z
Western Texas College does not offer any post-grad services. If they do, I am unaware of them.
College Senior 2013-07-03T01:08:20Z
The teachers at Western Texas College are very knowledgeable of the classes they teach. That is why I chose this school. They are also very helpful and don't only act as a teacher but as an equal as well. The school is fairly flexible. I am able to work and go to my classes. The credits, however, are not transferable to some schools.
College Senior 2013-05-27T16:26:00Z
The computer network is great. Fast wireless internet on brand new high end computers

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I get no financial aid, so I do not know about that, but I feel that I am getting a great education for the tuition. The welding program is very expensive to run because of how much gas we go through, but the tuition is the same as for other courses. Its great!
College Senior 2013-05-27T16:18:43Z
Western Texas college has a very unique staff. They are all helpful and keep in contact with students personally. They are also inexpensive tution wise
College Senior 2013-05-27T16:16:07Z
The facilities are great, especially as far as career and technical training goes. Amazing computer lab for graphic art work, all brand new macs. Big fully equipped welding shop. Student game room with pool tables, ping pong tables and big screen TVs. Theres also a gym for students. Overall its great, and not crowded!

Even though it is more strict than high school, the professors are still pretty flexible. There are deadlines but most teachers still give you the flexibility of turning stuff in!
Recent Alumnus 2013-05-15T21:28:02Z
I really like online courses better than being in a classroom setting. Its pretty easy once you get used to it but you have to be self motivated. You have more freedom and leniency in an online course. So you have to make yourself do the work.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
