Central Maine Community College Reviews

230 reviews

Central Maine Community College (CMCC) is the first and only college I've attended.

The first thing you hear about CMCC is that safety is their first priority. They live up to this! Local police drive through at random times during the day and night - which adds to the feeling of security.

Some instructors are very knowledgeable in their courses, yet lack the skills to teach a course. Others arguably know little of their course, and teach it well regardless. These are outliers - my experience differs from that of my colleagues. My colleagues proclaimed excellence in their instructors through their time at CMCC.

Their second priority, in my opinion, is successful transfers. There is a "transfer fair" every month or so, where other Maine colleges reserve a table inside the main entrance of CMCC, and offer applications for transfer. The college maintains that *all* earned credits will transfer.

If a safe college with knowledgeable staff is what you seek, CMCC is worth the price.

Good variety of academic programs. Excellent tutorial help. Tuition is low so it's a low cost start to your bachelors. Classroom computer labs need updates but money was spent on new sports complex. Teachers are hit and miss. Some are great but some aren't knowledgeable about the subjects they teach. I had two classes with a teacher who had just taught himself the software he was teaching the summer prior and couldn't answer many of my questions. Dorms are subpar. Drug use is often overlooked. There is no real kitchen in the larger dorm and students are forced to pay for meals even if they don't want cafeteria food, where there is only one vegan option - salad.
I love all of the classes that I've taken so far, the faculty is extremely nice and caring! Small class sizes and great environment for learning.
