Maybe the worst possible public institution. A staff full of rude and unprofessional workers, who do not listen and treat students like kindergarteners. I came in simply looking to complete one course, be prepared for rude staff members and inadequate information about the courses you are looking to take. Also be prepared for them to sell you the wrong books, and refuse to give refunds or make accommodations! The biggest waste money, an absolute scam! For the price you are paying the education you are receiving is laughable. If you are looking to complete classes as a guest student, or are looking to attend this institution at all DO NOT!!! There are plenty of other community colleges, that treat their students with respect.
The professor clumsily copied and pasted her syllabus verbatim into an online platform that was just a string of words without clear indicators of assignments, due dates, necessary links and/or assignment descriptions. The platform was not user friendly but the professor’s lack of effort at cleaning up her online syllabus made navigating the course wildly inefficient.
Cape cod community college is a wonderful college. The classes are flexible and aplenty. The instructors are very nice and helpful in anyway they can. If you are a student that is willing to put in the work then you have endless opportunities at this school. The advisor department is also helpful but depending on you situation and be an asset to your studies.
I really enjoyed the online learning aspect of this college. The professors are very helpful and respond promptly. It allows flexibility for a working student.
Cape Cod Community College allowed me to take fully online classes smoothly when other colleges required students to be on campus during the COVID-19 pandemic. Attending helped me get some of the basic classes I needed out of the way at a fraction of the cost of other colleges. All of my professors were friendly, and they have all worked so hard to make the remote classes work for us students. Unfortunately, because I was a remote student, I cannot rate some of the variables Niche offers.
Cape Cod Community College is a great college for fresh kids who are starting off their first year of college. They are very welcoming and have helped me in choosing my career for my future.
I have learned so many new topics while trying to find a major to have a career with in the future. The teachers have taught me more than what I realized I thought I knew.
Cape Cod Community College is a pretty average community college. There are small class sizes and the most helpful staff. However, if you take one major and don't get along with the "main" instructor, good luck as many courses are only taught by one staff member. If you are just looking for a cheaper option for college, this is for you. Be aware that you will feel like you are back in high school. There are few "new thoughts and opinions" and all staff members support general Cape Cod views. Just, meh.
I did take one online class and dropped it early on. Cape Cod Community uses the Moodle online system, which is a very easy program to learn. It is fairly easy to use Moodles' checklists to make sure that you've finished all you need to do. However, many instructors make you log on mulpitle times a week for "group engagement" which basically means posting in a forum group. I did find this a lazy form of teaching, as many of my physical classes were once a week with extra homework, while the online classes mostly focused on attendance and posts rather than long form homework. Overall, the online system is average; not the best form of learning but will get the job (or degree) done.
It really depends on the professor how the online classes were. I had a few that were great and easy to navigate, and one that was difficult, as the time between when an assignment would be uploaded to when it was due wasn't enough.
At CCCC as a dual enrollment student, I found a very welcoming environment. Teachers were very accommodating with various schedules such as older and younger students, along with part-time students with full-time jobs trying to further their education.
Great place to start your college journey. All the faculty and staff i have been in contact with are very supportive, they offer you every chance and care about your success!
This is a very good Community College. You won't get the full experience of dorms or partying, but the classes are top-notch and it's a great decision to attend here if you aren't sure what you want to do or if you need to get those Gen Ed classes out of the way. There aren't many extracurriculars compared to bigger schools, but the food in the cafeteria is good and it's right off of exit 6, so it's easily accessible
I’ve had a great experience at Cape Cod Community College. The professors are very helpful and committed to their students learning. They have great resources available on campus to help students. The price is very reasonable for college courses. They have great programs and are always looking for feedback for improvement.
The college is alright, but the campus needs some renovations and there needs to be more for students to do. The staff also needs to show more compassion towards their students.
If you can afford to not go here, then don't. This school will save you money but the administration is awful and the student body attracts a lot of crazy and unstable people. Burger King tastes like a 5 star restaurant compared to the awful food here. The advisers can be unhelpful and rude (along with completely ignoring what you want to do and pressure you to do something else). As I said earlier, the student body is full of awful people and the clubs are full of drama and bs. In conclusion, don't go here if you can afford not to or be able to drive to a different community college.
I loved everything about Cape Cod Community College (4Cs). It is truly home and I am forever proud that I started at 4Cs. You definitely soar with the help of professors, advisors and other students.
