Gulf Coast State College Reviews

Gulf Coast State College is a very diverse campus. The age demographic is very wide. It's not only common to see fresh out of high school students but also thirty or forty-year-old students wanting a career change.

Also, each school year the college is expanding its programs to offer quality careers in new workforces. For example, unmanned vehicles and 3D printing (not only plastic, their culinary program has a 3D chocolate printer).

With a student ratio of 18:1, they have smaller classes that allow more time to be available for questions and in-depth conversations in class topics.

I'm very proud to be a Commodore!

Gulf Coast State College is an overall wonderful school. The professors are friendly and always exchange "hi's" on their way to their next class. Most professors here are always willing to help you succeed academically. The campus is also located in a beautiful area too. Sitting right by the bay, it is nice to take a break and go by the water. Overall, if you want a smaller school with beautiful views Gulf Coast State College is the place for you!
I enrolled at Gulf Coast State College in 2016 since then I have grown to appreciate their services and staff members. When it comes to academics, the help students receive is incredible and very reliable. They offer free tutoring as well as one and one meetings with professors. They also provide non-credit classes that students of all ages can take for fun. Despite all the great resources they offer at Gulf Coast State College, they need funding organizations like students loans or scholarships for international students like my self. It is hard to suffer in your own country trying to get an education only to suffer even more in another man's country.
