Affordable -what every incoming student wants to hear. With multiple campuses (IAC now Padron is the best, this is 100% bias) you can choose which one suits your needs. Scholarships are offered for incoming students along with Financial Aid! Advisors may not always be on the same page but knowing which campus to go to will better results. The professors are amazing, some may be harder however they know what to teach and are easy to contact. Homework isn't heavy unless you are taking more than the credit requirement, even so, many professors don't assign homework. Online classes are great, especially the hybrid courses offered (most of the times they are more lenient) Like every college/university, DO YOUR RESEARCH before selecting a class and professor. Overall, it isn't a bad start from your transition of high school to independence, it's like testing the waters before committing to a 4year university (and you save a whole lot of money) Good luck in your future endeavors!

I loved loved loved my time at Miami Dade College. Although Broward was closer to me at the time, I chose to go to Miami Dade because they had better ratings. I really appreciate the number of classes they have available online. That really helped me out big time when it came to time management and travel expenses. The only frustrating experience was near the end when it came to graduation requirements. Between them switching to a new system and switching through several "counselors" I did some extra classes that weren't even required in the end. However, despite that, all in all, a great experience! The graduation ceremonies are nice too!
Ever since I started at Miami Dade College back in Fall Term 2014, I have grown and flourished in more ways than I ever thought imaginable. I have had so many professors that motivated me, provided guidance, and furthered my passion for learning. They always make sure to instill a sense of pride and give you school spirit through various events, clubs, and organizations. I will always be grateful to everyone at Miami Dade College for the opportunity to get my associates degree at such an affordable price and for making me feel at home. I took classes in almost all of the campuses and each one was beautiful, well kept, and full of amazing professors and staff. In the years I've been there, I haven't encountered any issues because everything from choosing your classes and advisement to financial aid or the dean is easily accessible to any student. My graduation for the A.A degree was one of the most beautiful experiences I've had because of an excellent commencement ceremony too!
