Great experience with JSCC 2016/2017. Excellent staff & students in the Veterinary Technology program!
Instructors communicate well with students and are very thorough in teaching. Veterinary Technology instructors are extremely knowledgeable & strive for students to succeed.
The campus is somewhat spread out but easily accessible with the help of a map. Seems like a quiet, safe place to study with minimal distractions. However food, shopping and other businesses are not too far away.
Pleasant experience with financial aid & admissions departments and all JSCC staff.
Online courses are easily accessible & the JSCC website is very informative & easy to maneuver.
Overall pleasant experience with JSCC. Highly recommend this college and the Veterinary Technology Program.

Jeff State is the perfect place to grow or as they say "Find your place". Choosing to come here insted of starting out at a university I think, was a great decision. Instead of spending a lot of money at a traditional University still not knowing fully what I wanted to major in, at Jeff State, I was able to figure out what I was interested in for half the cost. And most of the instructors were from universities in the aera, some from The University of Alabama, UAB and Auburn University. The amount if finanical aid through transfer and home scholarships has been awesome too.

Over all, I love Jeff State, sure the social scene isn't like a univeristy but it does it's purpose. The awesome faculty and staff are willing to not just help you wile youre there but eager to help you succeed at your transfer institution. They help you get a leg up when you're starting from the bottom.
The staff at Jefferson State Community College truly cares about their students and they are very helpful! If an issue arises we, the students know there is a someone on hand ready to assist. The Professors take their roles serious and it's very clear that their students success equtes to that of their own. I've found myself at Jefferson State and as I continue on my journey, I know that the staff is on board and ready to assist in any way possible. Their efforts are greatly appreciated.
