Gets you a piece of paper but a lot of the software and techniques are outdated. It seems the staff is unclear of many things sometimes. But overall has a lot of opportunities.
Online is a 'teach yourself' approach, with little support from professors. It's a do it yourself approach....the feeling of college life is lost
The faculty and staff at Alvin Community College go above and beyond to ensure student success. Whether you’re taking 3 hours a semester or 15, their fire to support you through the years never diminishes.
It is an excellent learning environment here on the campus of Alvin Community College with great instructors and staff who have a heart to teach and help our students and our community. As well as a great campus life for anyone who plans to attend or plans to return as a student with amazing diversity of student culture and with great organizations around the campus for anyone willing to get involved or wanting to learn their leadership within the campus clubs. Which can become a benefit for anyone wanting to learn their leadership skills and anyone willing to move up in their leadership. Plus a student center for student interaction and bonding with other students, and an on campus café, and yearly student activities which are held throughout the year for students who want to learn more about life on a great and amazing campus. Many times sports will be held on occasions such as baseball and softball. Alvin Community College can be a great choice for anyone wanting a great major.
Alvin Community College is a great place to learn and grow in a great diverse campus with amazing staff and instructors willing to teach and support our students within our community and a great student life on campus for interactions and opportunities to bond and a great majority of majors and degree programs in a great wide range of paths for success.
Very affordable college with a wide range of educational options. Great for moms returning to the workforce and students who want to reduce the cost of a traditional 4 yr by taking courses at ACC before transferring credits.
Most of the professors are good, some are terrible. Solid Nursing program which is my major. Its a community college so no dorms or real campus life. The Cafe is nice and has hot food sometimes or sandwiches. Lots of snacks. Its also a bookstore and has a supplies needed albeit at a higher price. Its big enough to get lost on your first day but small enough to get around fine afterward. Science building is very nice and new compared to other buildings.
I took a couple of online classes. They should not have classes with labs online (science classes) but other types of classes are fine in my opinion.
There is no real-time support from the instructor, the systems used are saturated and send error messages, the Blackboard is obsolete
People do not have great enthusiasm when attending community college; however, Alvin Community College was able to provide a great experience for me. I am an alumni who graduated Fall 2019. Attending smaller classes gave the professors an opportunity to help students if needed, as well as building a relationship with students and even just knowing the names. There were also fun activities in the fall to get the student body together as well as numerous clubs to find interest in. Academic advisors helped me throughout the enrollment process for classes as well as making sure I am on the right path for success in my career.
This is a tiny school. Yeah, it's cheap but not cheap enough. The professors are okay at their job but if you need something from the admin... you'd be better off going to a new college. They try to look like they are good at what they are doing (eg: neat-ish website, semi-updated furniture, etc.) but it is all an act. They also suck when it comes to maintenance. The columns holding up the school are broken, the bathrooms are gross, and the sidewalks are cracked. You're better off going somewhere else.
Professors just use Pearson so their job is already done for them. Everything's automatically graded, assigned, and taught.
I wish ACC offered a night nursing program so those of us who can't afford to leave there jobs to attend school could still go. It has taken me this long to complete pre-recs because of the ridiculous financial aid system we have to go through I struggle to pay for classes and my bills because I can't qualify for financial aid due to the fact I must provide parental information even though I live on my own and no one helps me witch school in any way. I can't even qualify for scholarships with ACC because I don't qualify for FASFA and that is crazy just because the government has a screwed up system doesn't mean you have to have one too. And add more visitor parking spots I had to risk getting a ticket to take my TSI because there weren't any open spots and I wasn't a student so I didn't have a pass.
I liked all my professors, they were in between of how a professor and a high school teacher are which was great because I am a dual credit student. And people on campus were always helpful.
This college does work hard to make sure you understand the material. Very personable staff. Campus is regular size, not too big where you could get lost.
The professors are wonderful, and they have an amazing dual credit plan with the Alvin area. I am a Dual Credit student, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a part time high school and part time college student.
Alvin community college is a great college. Easy access, lots of programs, great teachers. There is a strong sense of community in the programs, they look out for each other and there's a "no man left behind" mentality. The facility truly want you to succeed, so as long as you're willing to study and do the best you can do, you will graduate, you will find a job.
