Black River Technical College Reviews
Rating 4.12 out of 5 146 reviews
The affordability was the best part in my opinion. The staff and teachers are all extremely helpful, they helped me find more scholarship opportunities and plenty of other things to help me. The classes were easy to understand while also remaining challenging.
I took all my classes online. My teachers were quick to respond if there was an issue and were understanding as well. There were a few times were the program being used to do our school work was finicky, but overall it was a good experience. Grades and scholarships came through quickly as well.
I only took a few online courses and I had a very average experience. I do better in person which could be the reason but depending on the class it could be really good and interactive while others were not as much. But all teachers on the other side were usually good at getting back to you quickly while also being nice and understanding
BRTC has some of the nicest professors I have ever met and genuinely wants everyone to succeed. It is a tight-knit community because of how small we are but that allows for more personable relationships. They take their time to get to know the students and are very orderly. Everyone is not only a friend but a growing student because of their dedication. The only reason it does not get 5 stars is because of the lack of a cafeteria and class options(specifically arts-related) I go to the Paragould campus which is a smaller version of the Pocahontas campus which does have a cafeteria and more art-related classes offered.
The online classes are easy to get to on the Moodle page and the instructors are helpful. If you have issues the technical team is available for help during the daytime. If a problem comes up with your online class you can always call the campus for help during the daytime.
I have been going to BRTC since I was in 9th grade at my high school. My high school let us do concurrent credit classes starting in 9th grade. I took full advantage of that. I was able to get all of my prerequisites for the new RN program that BRTC offered this Fall of 2020. I not only was able to gain many college hours, I graduated twice from BRTC with two associates degrees before I graduated High School. I have had many issues trying to get my information over to other colleges, but BRTC was simple. I love the fact that it is the 2nd most leading nursing program in the state of Arkansas and that I am apart of it. BRTC's instructors show their students their compassion and care for our grades. BRTC was the only college that I was able to sit down with the Dean of Nursing and figure out a plan that will get my BSN as cheap as possible but again with the best education possible. Many students come home from other schools and restart at BRTC because it is just the best school in NEA.
The online experiences I have had with BRTC are amazing. I am actually taking two online courses with my nursing program right now and online is the only option I had. I can learn on my own time and anytime I email my instructors about classwork or anything, they are always very fast to response. My instructors give their students their phone numbers if we need to call and talk about the work. So many resources are available for my online classes. Internet is available at my college to do our online classes. The classes are so organized and there is very little lead-way to cheat so they are making sure that we are learning the material instead of looking it up. BRTC is overall my number one school for anything!
Black River Technical College is by far one the best colleges I have attended. The faculty staff and instructors do their best to always help you out of you need them to. This my second and a hlf year with them and I will continue to keep going. No instructor wants you to fail and will give you every opportunity not to.
Yes, I have taken a few courses online and the instructors use ample time to explain things to you if you don not understand. I took some hard classes online and managed passing all my online class with an A. You can get in tough with them anytime you need too. And they are always there to answer them. I loved all my instructors, on line and on campus!
It’s a great school & very close to home. It was challenging to work from home & finish my classes online due to the coronavirus, but I did it!
O stars if I could on everything it touches. This college is pure trash and institutions as such are exactly whats wrong with America to being with. Two faced faculty members especially Kellie Hartridge and Vice President Bane totally deteriorate this college's overall performance. Why in the world these two moronic idiot jack handle of a fools haven't been fired is beyond me. Avoid at all costs!
I love BRTC. The faculty there is so nice and helpful. The programs offered are amazing. I highly recommend BRTC even though it is a 2 year college it is one of the best colleges around.
The staff at BRTC are so nice, they make sure that you have all the information that you need. Since it is a community college it is very affordable. You will still be able to get the same education that you would be getting at a four year college.
The college is very personable. They know you by name and are always willing to help. If there was one thing I would want to change it would be the degrees. I wish they offered more, but it is a technical college.
I haven't attended the college yet but I have been there many times. I enjoy the people and staff. They are all very respectful.
My favorite thing about Black River Technical College is that the campus is really safe. They have campus police and other great qualities so that you can feel safe on campus. Something that I would definitely like to see change is being able to get the whole Associate's of Arts Degree online. There are many classes available to take online but as of right now, you cannot complete your whole degree online.
One thing that I really like about Black River Technical College is that they have an array of options for online classes so that I can go to school on my own time. One thing that I wish would change is making the whole Associate of Arts Degree online. There are certain classes that you have to have to graduate that cannot be taken online.
