Something that I liked about CCC was that they went all out for me to get help for me when I need it. They have a lot of resources that help you to succeed.
For me, this is a great community college because it is affordable, and the difficulty of the classes are on pare with my mind.
Professors often would not assign due dates, so it was easy to get late papers since they wouldn't email a due date either. Then they don't let you make up the assignments for something that is not your fault. Horrible communication, teachers often don't answer emails or any attempt you make to reach out.
Teachers report students often for stuff that they do not need to be reported for. Teachers won't assign due dates, won't tell you when it's due through emails, and then won't let you make up the assignments. Many teachers will not email you back if you have a question, even if you email them a few days before the assignment is due, they won't email you back until after the due date. Overall, horrible experience with the professors. Would not recommend this college at all, they professors make it way more stressful than college already is, not worth it.
I give it two stars because at the time I went to this school, between 2006 and 2008, it was very affordable and I was able to cover the cost with the scholarship money and some savings I had at the time. There was also a really kind instructor at the time that helped me feel at ease at this school. Otherwise it was really negative. At the time I was a young, first generation college student it was really hard for me to navigate their system, registering for classes, turning in assignments, and the financial aid. The staff were often unfriendly, making it awkward to seek any help. Their transfer system at the time was a joke as I had to spend extra courses and semesters catching up to earn a four year degree after transferring. I never once felt valued at this school and some of my experiences there were legitimately traumatizing. After transferring schools, I was able to find a university that was caring and showed they valued their students. I look back at CCC as a disappointment.
I am an Academic Transfer student at the CCC Kearney Learning Center. The program was offered to me after attending a campus tour. It is a good decision a newly graduated high school student could make. Tuition at the local university is +$8000 per semester compared to the $1000 semester at CCC. The entry test places you in classes that fit your needs and courses go at a good pace to begin your college journey. College classes also offer dual credit with local high schools. Scholarships are open each semester for students who need extra financial support. The classes are taught by highly motivated instructors and their classes cater to traditional and non-traditional students. Tutors are available at no cost to help us with science, math, medical, and writing classes. Academic advisors are available on campus to help answer questions over programs, schedules, and the transfer process. The CCC offers campus visits and college representatives to offer information.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, remote learning had to implemented fast. All teachers were prepared to go online. Before spring break, all teachers informed their classes on how they were going to teach and how the classes were going to be affected. We utilize Moodle and we will be transitioning to Canvas in the fall. All classes are organized at the beginning of the semester on a set timeline. We are sent emails by the instructors before the semester begins to introduce us to the class. Assignments, projects, and tests have due dates so we know ahead of time when they are due. IP classes have set times to meet on WebEx. Instructors teach classes as they would in the classroom. Online classes do require more focus and responsibility. I would suggest taking a certain number each semester. However, there will be classes that are only offered online. Overall the classes online are quite easy. Always ask questions, check due dates, and read the material to prepare for tests.
If I had any questions they were able to answer them and if they were not they found someone who could. The staff has been extremely nice to me. Classes are not hard and the instructors care about you getting a quality education.
I have not had any online classes so far, but my classmates with the same major that do. All have said its not bad
Small enough that you get a lot of attention if you need help. Big enough to get advanced training in you degree.
Central Community College is a great because it helped me get used to being outside of high school and it was so helpful and understanding. All the instructors answered the questions I had and they were so nice.
As a community college Central is hands down the best. They work with you on anything from a certificate or diploma to an associates or to just get your general studies done then assist with your transfer to a 4 year college. They make the transferring easy and make sure you take classes that will transfer with as well.
If you have to sue them, you have two years after the incident due to a deal they have with the government. Don’t make the same mistake I did and allow criminals to it away with stuff just because the police don’t care and the lawyers can’t look into it.
The teachers are wonderful and always willing to help. They truly want to see all students succeed. They have a great student success center and the software they provide while you are a student is incredible and helps with the financial part of having to purchase programs like Microsoft office. They also have the Read and Write program available for all students. They also provide online, in person tutoring.
I think that the Central Community College campus in Hastings, NE is average overall. I learned about as much as I expected from being there. The food can sometimes be either bad or good depending on what is being served. The dorm I lived in was pretty disappointing since it was one room that I had to share with another person. The campus itself is pretty far away from the rest of the town, only being able to travel there by car. I felt neutral about my professors at Central Community College. They do what needs to be done, but I also have not felt any special connection with them.
Central Community College is a small college. The teachers are decent but check in to make sure their expectations and how the want the assignments. Academics-there are a good assortment of that students can gain careers and become experts in their field of study. Food could improve but it isn't terrible. Normally students might have to go more into town to find activities to do, but if there is a dorm, the campus staff can put on some good activities for the students.
The Grand Island Central Community College is an excellent college with many activities to do. There are many ways to get involved within the college. Also, anyone is willing to help a student. They are super friendly.
