I really liked my instructors, the hour flexibility, and the college's commitment to seeing students thrive and succeed.
It was great experience taking online classes. Even though I prefer in person class. I had great time hearing people opinion. Most of the time quieter people don’t express their opinion in class. They get chance to express in online classes.
It’s a excellent start for people who work and study at the same time. Who doesn’t know what they want to study. Who are parent and wants to complete their education.
The online experience offered at CCV was great. I was able to order all of my books, communicate with teachers and other students, and navigate each of my classes very well. Each teacher sets up the class page slightly differently but it's simplicity made the experience enjoyable no matter what. The only downside that I noticed is that there isn't always an easy way to move from one assignment during the week to another without going back to the class's main screen.
I had a wonderful experience over 4 years at this college. I took most of my classes online and a few in the classroom. Their online dashboard is easy to use and teachers did a great job of ensuring that students are able to access all of the information they need as well as communicate with other students and themselves. Everyone I came in contact with was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this college to others looking for a two-year degree.
I did dual enrollment there and it was okay. I didn't love it but the classes were interesting and I liked the professors. I did not spend much time on campus but when I did it was good but very small.
I currently go to the upper valley campus and love it there, I am always supported by staff, professors and other students. Everyone is kind and understanding. I havent had a teacher I didn't like. They have different class options but they only happen with enough people are interested in it so sometimes you wont get to get a class if not enough people apply. It's a small community college without housing opportunities, however there are many campuses throughout vermont so if you move you can still attend one of there other campuses.
I love how the environment seems like a family. The only thing that I would change is for them to get some sort of fridge to keep lunches in.
I think the only thing I would change is better outreach to online degree students like myself. We're out of the loop and it's hard to meet with advisors when they don't keep up on emails etc.
Community College is a fantastic way to save money for the first two years of school. This particular college makes it very easy to transfer; they have a Pathways program that will align your schedule with the schedule of students in various Vermont universities. I personally am transferring to NVU Johnson, and so what I did was my freshmen year, I met with my advisor. She showed me a list of all the classes that correspond with the classes that Johnson students are taking their first year. This way, you're taking the same classes that you would for the first two years of your four year school, and learning the same exact content, but for way, way less money! CCV makes everything very easy, and every teacher there is approachable and helpful. It's really a great place to go, especially if you want to graduate from a four year school but save thousands of dollars for the first two years.
I like that there is Tutors available to make my home work studies more manageable. I like that they gave me an option of taking a summer class to catch me up on my English studies so that I can take my Major in the fall. The Professors are very helpful to me and are always willing to go over things with me if I don't understand. I feel the classes that I am taking are more my level and I feel confident that i can succeed to earn my degree. I like that I don't have to travel that far to get to my classes.
The College is a convenient place to study, and they have online course options which I like. The quality of the courses is hit or miss, but there are some good ones.
I have had such a great experience at Community College of Vermont (CCV). I have been attending since 2015 and will finally be able to graduate before then end of 2019. A career path has never been pushed onto me and everyone has been so amazing. The advisors are so amazing, whatever I need they are there and go above and beyond in making this college like a home. We are all family here and that was something I was scared of when I started at CCV. I was worried that I would be all alone and that's not the case at all. My fellow students and instructors are just as amazing. My instructors all understand that life happens and they will accommodate within reason. I could never have asked for a better college experience. I wouldn't change anything about CCV. They are a very family and community oriented college which is great for students who have families.
As a young parent of two kids and working full time, going back to school is not easy. The classes, professors and counselors at CCV really help make the process easier! The school is convenient with many choices of the classes you need either in class or online! To be more productive against the surrounding schools, I believe the college should expand on the classes that they allow and/or the degrees they give out. I personally am perusing an Allied Health Certificate at CCV in order to transfer to another college to pursue a nursing degree. Having other options than just certificates would be beneficial, like a science based associate degree.. although being a smaller community college what it has is expected. I will continue to attend CCV because it works great for my hectic lifestyle.
The community at CCV is great. The professors truly care about their students and do everything they can to help when reached out to. However, I wish they offered more diverse courses at the rural locations.
I love CCV. First of all, I took a year off to look at myself and what I wanted to do in life, after already completing a class with CCV. When I was ready to get back into college, the team was ready to make my dreams come true. As someone who cannot afford to go to a large and pricey college, CCV was one of the few options I had, and thankfully I have found this school to be the best option for me.
This is a great school with fantastic, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful teachers. I have found a career path at this school, and my confidence has soared.
