My experience here at Carl Albert State College has been very smooth. I attended the Sallisaw campus as a concurrent student and then decided to go to the main campus to advance my education once I graduated from high school. This is currently my second semester here and I am loving it! It is a very relaxing and otherwise calm environment. There aren't a lot of noise complaints or safety issues with the campus. It's a nice first step for anyone wanting to continue their education out of high school.

Attending CASC has been the best decision for myself and my family. Not only is the tuition affordable in the event of no financial aid, but the instructors genuinely care about the progress their students are making. The workloads are tough, but manageable. The instructors are extremely understanding when emergencies arise, and as long as you communicate with them, they typically can accommodate.
I am loving my experience at CASC! the instructors are motivating and challenging. I like the homey atmosphere this seemingly small town college provides. I personally went from a girl terrified of school to earning a high GPA and working on my second degree! Couldn't have done it without the positive influence of the staff working here at Carl Albert State College.
