The first thing I've noticed about Cecil is that it's meant to be a stepping stone school, a transition between high school and a 4 year that isn't (or shouldn't be)as taxing on you're wallet as jumping into a university tends to be. If you're willing to tough out the growing pains of you and your classmates, consider Cecil a solid fit if you live in the area!
Review Cecil College
There are not enough online classes. I wish there were far more as this is more convenient for me. I find that online classes require even more work because the weekly to do is consistently the same versus a standard class where the work flow comes and goes. Many developmental math classes are hybrid requiring some class or lab time and mostly home study time. At times it was very hard to keep up with the workload and I was often spending half as long to twice as long, working in the system as needed, just to keep up. For other online classes, it takes a bit longer to get acclimatized to what exactly needs to be done but so far my professors have been good at providing specifics. Also be aware that online classes often involve extra costs due to software codes that need to be purchased (usually around $150).
So far, Cecil is great. The professors are very nice and forgiving. They only set you up to succeed, and whether or not you do the work determines if you pass or fail. Class sizes are pretty small, so it's a lot easier for your professor to know and recognize you, which is always beneficial. I also like that although it's not classified as a community college anymore, it's still very affordable and offers programs for other schools so that people can finish their four-year degrees close to home. I definitely think that Cecil College should become a four-year school, and who knows, maybe it will in the future.
