Bergen Community College Reviews
Classes online are very simple! The professors have their course set up for the semester, it is up to them if they let you see all the work at the beginning or just go week by week. I prefer week by week because it forces me to stay on top of my work, instead of waiting until the end. They are easy to get in contact with since you won't be able to see them in person. I recommend it if you're not able to constantly travel to campus!
The student to teacher ratio is manageable and several two-year degrees that lead to high-paying jobs as such as nursing and network administration are available. Students planning to move to a four year college have a high chance of transferring all or nearly all of their credits. The campus is a bit plain, but it is tidy.

The professors, on the other hand, seem to be universally wonderful educators. Bergen Community is a cost-effective way to start a career.

Meanwhile , everything has Pro and Con effect . Personally, I do not like so much online classes. I like more reaction at class, asking direct my professors for any concerned I had after the class; to stay at library ...
