Coastal Alabama Community College Reviews

Coastal Alabama Community College is very average and in my opinion, very minimal in every aspect. I go to the Fairhope Campus and much the building are clearly old, yet well-kept to a certain standard. The main campus, Bay Minette, is also pretty mediocre, but better than Fairhope for sure. The instructors are half and half; some are really good at teaching and genuinely want everyone to learn while others just put notes up on the slides and assign due dates and test dates. I would recommend this school to someone who wants just wants a quick degree, but if you want a real education, you’ll have to teach yourself.

I love Faulkner (It's called Coastal Alabama Community College now) because of how they provide easier ways of acceptance to be honest. I'm a Dual Enrollment student with the local high school. Meaning I get college credit for free while I'm in high school, so I'm already accepted into the college through dual enrollment. Plus they have the lowest tuition in the state, so that's a plus. The one thing I would see changed is the diversity, it's mostly white people and there is many people who come across as judgemental. I have a friend (Who is a person of color) who was doing a interview for a scholarship and he said that they didn't seem to take him seriously and would snicker/giggle when he would answer their questions.
I recently graduated earlier this month and I loved the school!
The professors provided an excellent and professional learning environment.
I would highly recommend the college for anyone who wishes to complete community college before going to a 4 year!
