New River Community & Technical College Reviews

New River Technical and Community College has been an excellent choice to expose me to college life. It is a small community school that offers one on one assistance and is not as overwhelming as a larger University. Also, because I am responsible for paying my own college expenses, it is much more affordable than what a larger college would be for the same basic courses.
I feel that my college has an atmosphere which truly meets the Community and Technical College mantra. They offer an exceptional variety of courses and have multiple campuses throughout the state which gives students more availability to attend college, as there are not many options for higher education locally.

Is there room for improvement? Sure! If you're not improving, you're declining. But compared to other schools. the caliber of education is above par and is definitely financially affordable..
FInancial aid department is great. No problems, or issues at all. They are very direct with loan counseling and the true cost versus value is exceptional! I would definately recommend this school to anyone
