Chemeketa Community College Reviews
I’m going to college for the first time as an adult. I was really worried about attending a community college. But it’s very diverse in age, everyone has been incredibly friendly and helpful. I haven’t done much with the other activities on campus as I work full time and I’m a parent, but academically, I’m very impressed!
Chemeketa college is a friendly , clean and accessible campus. The people that attend the college are very friendly overall. I feel that the locations of the campus’s, specially the main campus is very convenient and close to the roads from all geographical directions. I feel that the acceptance rate is very reasonable along with the cost of the college. Along with many scholarships that are offered , one can also get grants and work studies to help with the cost of admission. There are many apartments or houses around town that are affordable if one does not want to commute. The class sizes overall bare a good size with instructors and professors very professional and knowledgeable. If one stays on top of their studies, keeps a good line of communication with their instructors and seeks advice from academic advisors then they can complete their studies at Chemeketa at a very fast rate. Many four year college accept the courses from Chemeketa and so it makes sense to go to Chemeketa
Chemeketa is very user friendly and has great staff that really cares about the students. There are academic advisers to help you decide on a major and plan out your classes. There are a lot of opportunities for scholarships and financial aid, too. If you get a job on campus, you have the opportunity to get a tuition waver! Chemeketa is also working on affordable textbooks and giving students the best rates on books.
