I left, I couldn’t do it anymore. Financial Aid is useless. They do not return calls; the two people at the front desk don’t seem to know anything about financial aid. All they say is wait till you’re awarded. The one and only staff I use to go to for help they let leave in financial aid.

My biggest complaint is the lack of knowledge most staff have. If you have a question they will send you to other offices; before you know it your back where you started with no answer to your question. You can also walk down the hall and hear employees talking bad about students. Just not the place for me, going to Fitchburg State this FALL, hope everyone has a better experience than me.
Review Mount Wachusett Community College
Online courses are easy to access, assignments can be completed any time within fair deadlines. If you procrastinate, completing a course may be a challenge, so don't fall behind!
Professor's are fair. For the most part I completely was on my own learning the college process. Advising put me in courses I did not need, and financial aid would not assist me with any books. They would only give me loans, even though I was told they have a needy fund. The school isn't diverse and if you don't go to Gardner Campus you miss out on all student activities. Public Transportation to Gardner isn't the best.
