Great Basin College Reviews
Rating 3.88 out of 5 197 reviews
I really enjoyed how every professor/Instructor cared for their students and helped me. I would like to see Great Basin College try to expand and become even more successful.
The staff has been very helpful with getting everything organized so it is easy to get enrolled and ready for classes to begin.
I am currently enrolled to Great Basin College. I will start classes by the end of August. So far Great Basin and its people have been very helpful with enrollment and any other questions that I have.
My experience at Great Basin College was a stressful but very good one. I did the electricial program which is a very good program but so much gets thrown at us at once which made the school year challenging, but having the right instructor there which I did made it easier to make it through the program and graduate. I met many new people who I have become close with and am grateful to have experience what I have at this school. There is not much I would change other than the pace of the program I attended, but I understand that in this field of work there is so much to be learned that makes it difficult to slow things down. Overall, I have had a great experience and an enjoyable time learning at Great Basin College.
I recently enrolled into Great Basin College. I hope my experience is 10 out of 10. I understand that college isn’t like high school, meaning it isn’t as easy. So far there isn’t anything I would like to change about Great Basin.
Not bad option for doing only online course. Most assignment's are found on canvas and processors are rather lenient.
Great Basin is a great college that often gets underestimated or overlooked. Classes are offered both online or through several campus locations. The staff is easy to talk to and get in-touch with.
This is my first year at Great Basin College, and so far I've had a very pleasant experience. I love the campus and all the helpful staff. The college is very easy to navigate with maps of the school posted throughout. The college itself is very pleasant to look at and walk around, with constant green on campus with a stream running through the middle of it when it's not dried up.
I love Great Basin College. The campus is beautiful and they offer all of the classes I want and need to take.
Great basin college has great online program for students who are busy with their homelives. Easily accessible and worth it for getting your degree while working.
With the classes and academics I've had no issues with! I actually think they're pretty great! The only issue I have is that the social life is a dud. Most students either keep to themselves, stay in their social groups and aren't really inviting. I lived at the apts the school provided and they charged $500 a month for the apt with 2 to 3 other students living with you. At that rate might as well move out with them and get your own apt with no restrictions and better quality.
I thought Great Basin College would be a great place to start college, though I was wrong. Ever since I have been taking classes there I haven’t learned a thing from my professors, I can’t get any help from tutors. I have reached out to the professors and they have ignored me. When I needed to schedule proctored exams I didn’t have anyone get back to me until the day of the exam. The only thing that I learned from going to Great Basin College, was how much more I could be frustrated and how much anxiety I now have because of this school. I definitely don’t recommend going to Great Basin College unless you can take classes in person, otherwise it’s a joke.
I've taken two classes during my senior year of high school and they were well organized classes. Over all a great school and they have many programs for may different field.
I took the majority of my classes online from GBC. The Canvas platform they use is easy to navigate and the help desk was almost always open for support. The faculty do a great job of making the best of distance learning. Being a rural area, online classes and night classes are very common.
Great Basin College is a great school for affordable learning. The teachers are helpful and the programs keep expanding. There is still a gap in availability for some classes, but it is overall a great school.
The learning experience is very rigorous. It’s hard college work but doable. Don’t procrastinate. Also plan ahead.
Everyone was friendly. Advisors can take awhile to get back with you, but just stay on top of everything and you’ll be fine.
