EGCC is a great starter college that offers online classes and a lot of transferrable credits. It also has some great scholarship opportunities to make getting an education affordable.
I utilized the free college union benefit that EGCC partners with. I graduated with a 4.0 after returning to college 20 years after I started. The workload was manageable, even with a demanding full-time job and family responsibilities.
Everyone that I have dealt with was very helpful. I like that they send reminders through email or text letting me know about upcoming events.
One of my favorite things about EGCC is the way they have you schedule your classes! You take 18 credits per semester, but each semester is divided in half so you're only focusing on three classes (nine credits) at a time. It makes it so much easier to focus on the work and get more out of each class!
I did college online and loved the flexibility of it. I learned a lot at EGCC and liked how each class was set up. It also was really nice that I got to go for free because of my stepdads work union. Without the free A. A. from EGCC, I probably would not be applying for colleges to get my B. A. right now.
EGCC is a great supportive college that has provided a platform for me to take steps towards my dream of starting my own tutoring business and enabling me to be accepted into Georgetown College's MAT program so that I can earn my initial teaching certification.

As an online student, EGCC was fantastic. Most courses required a discussion board and a quiz/paper a week which was very easy to do while working a full-time job. The professors are reachable, and want to help you succeed.
Warm, inviting college that’s open to everyone. I was an online student, and it was a great experience. The college contracts with several dozen workers unions to provide free education to the members and their families- check it out!
College campus is just really awesome and inspiration for the students to enjoy there college life as well as to learn new things as there are different activities as per the opportunities which students participate and enjoy tooo
All of the online course work is very organized and easy to follow. The instructors keep contact with students every week and are available through email or zoom meetings.
EGCC has made returning to college a breeze. I don't think I would be as successful if not for the wonderful advisors helping me navigate.
EGCC is a joke. Of the three classes I took this round, one was a psychology class that didn't follow the reading material (I even tried copying and pasting all of the reading material into a word document to better access it mid test if I was in a bind and didn't understand a question. Almost NONE of the buzz words even used in quizzes match the reading material. Some of the questions may as well be written in a foreign language. I emailed the teacher, who feigned ignorance. That was the moment I knew that this college was nothing but a joke and not worth mine or anyone else's time. My other two classes weren't as bad because they were covering technical information. No way to tell me that we should, "Learn from china" on how they treat their workers. Please don't waste your time. To read a little more about my online experience, see below.
I like the way they teaching like the online sources and videos all lecture is PowerPoint. They doing great. But no opportunity for the union member or a community member to learn. No scholarships are available.
I had a great experience! Classes were well organized and professors were very helpful! I couldn't be any happier with my experience.
I took all of my classes online. I was able to get my degree as the result of a perk through my union. I am so glad I took the opportunity when it was presented. I was 60 years old when I began my classes and to say that there was a learning curve with the mechanics of online learning would be an understatement. I set a personal goal of obtaining a 4.0 GPA and through blood, sweat and tears I succeeded. I am so glad I was able to complete my degree and to be able to challenge myself. It is never too late to continue your education.
I loved the challenge of my classes. As an older learner it had been awhile since I was in a classroom but was excited to begin. Other than a few hiccups with technology it was pretty straightforward. The assignments were laid out with a timeline and it was my responsibility to complete them in a timely manner. It did require a dedicated amount of time but the end result was worth it.
Online learning at its worries,I asked an instructor to explain low grade so I can understand what needs to be corrected going foward no response. English course was the worse 8 weeks ever.Due too to lack teaching students are penalized. No tutoring given or suggested for student that are on hold or terminated for a YEAR.nor is talk about aid being reversed while this process takes place. I have encountered some outstanding professors and instructors unfortunately the bad out weigh the good. If you have a choice choose another school. The administration are not bias student success is not main priority.
