Disclaimer: I have not attended the college but I was originally planning to take online classes. My reason for not attending is because of my poor experience during the registration process, which I will go more in-depth about down below.

Simply put, the communication between students and staff is laughable. I filled out the application in April and by July it still had not been "articulated" as they call it. In general, the staff was bad about answering phone calls. I remember attempting to contact one lady numerous times and I left multiple voice messages but I never actually got to talk to her. Even my advisor blew me off! Almost nobody at the school acts like they want your business. The tuition is cheap but, after my experience, it is pretty obvious why. The school just seems so unprofessional and I only recommend it if you do not have the money for a better school; just be prepared for a lot of headaches when applying and registering for classes.

I love Great Basin College! Amazing professors who are willing to help and guide you. I have taken only taken online courses with this college, but the way the professors guide you prevents you from feeling like you are alone or have no assistance. Anytime I have a question or any concerns, the professors are easy to email and respond almost immediately. Another thing people may be afraid of when taking their online courses, is if the work is too hard because you are not face to face. Any professor that I have ever had has provided me with many resources to help me pass their class. I am a full-time student and this is my second year attending Great Basin College and I have never failed a class or had any complaints.
Studying at Great Basin College has been a wonderful experience thus far. GBC has an excellent variety of classes, instruction times, and modes of instructions. GBC has allowed me to be flexible in my school, making it more enjoyable and less of a hassle, making it possible for me to work full-time as well as be a full-time student! This community college has also been easy on my bank account. I'm able to pay for college, the bills, and have a little extra for me. Two thumbs up!
