The Fashion Apparel Design Program is a NEWBIE PROGRAM. HOWEVER, it is NOT PROPERLY PROMOTED. And many of us are suffering through this. The professors especially Prof. Rutter, are awesome. Just that this PROGRAM IS MISMANAGED!

We LEARN SO MUCH in the Fashion Industry and how everything comes together. BUT IT'S JUST THE PROGRAM IS MISMANGED IN SCHEDULING. WE LEARN ALL OF THESE THINGS (sewing, business, textiles, etc.), JUST FOR SOMEONE TO NOT LET US GO ON AND MESS UP THE SCHEDULING NOT LETTING ANYONE ELSE REALLY BE ABLE TO SCHEDULE WITH THIS ALONG WITH GEN ED COURSES.
Review Bergen Community College
I have done animal rescue for 20 years, but I am learning so much in the vet tech program and all I have done so far is prerequisites! It is all very technical information but very well tied into the day to day work of a vet tech. All of the professors have been very helpful and very engaged with myself and my fellow students. I chose this program over an online college because they emphasize hands on learning, which I think is very important in any medical field. Reading will only get you so far, if you can't place a catheter or take blood, you're not learning what's important.
I was really happy about how easily my credits transfered. I submitted my transcripts and upon inquiry found out all I needed to take were VET courses and college chemistry. All my other electives and degree requirements were taken care of. Since I am out of county, I applied for chargebacks and everyone has been very nice and helpful navigating that process also. The only hassle has been the rush hour traffic on my way home!
