Central Maine Community College 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.
Review Central Maine Community College
Central Maine is really a great place! With the size of campus being smaller, it honestly helps with making a lot of friends on campus as well as getting to know the staff of the school too. There is probably 20-50 students in a class and that makes it a lot easier to learn as an individual. When I went to visit the school it was honestly a beautiful campus at a beautiful location. The size of the campus was perfect for my first year of college! Being really nervous coming in to my freshman year, I ended up loving it! I wasn't overwhelmed with classes, so I felt like I had a better experience. I really enjoyed recognizing a lot of familiar faces all over campus. I played basketball, and the student life really got involved for a smaller campus compared to a D1 or a D2 school. You all feel like a family there, and I loved the overall experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!
Central Maine Community College is a local, inexpensive school which offers a great education. The professors at this school are extremely knowledgeable in their subject and are very flexible with getting help. I graduated from the Building Construction Technology program at Central Maine and I'm sure glad I did because when I went into the work force I was prepared for everything that was thrown at me and put on a successful road because of my extensive knowledge background I acquired from CMCC. I have recently been accepted into another 4-year college so I can further my education but I'm glad I took 2 years at CMCC because they really made the transition from high school to college a lot easier.
