New River Community College Reviews

My classes are pretty much all in the same day which is great because I can work both of my jobs in my free time and do homework on my free days as well.
The online courses are easy to understand and the professors make it easy to chat with them if you need help.
Getting degrees at this school can lead to amazing job opportunities.

It is a lot of hard work and takes a lot of time and effort but the end result will be worth it.
I love New River and am glad I started here. It has really helped me to achieve my goals.
there are advisors that come here from different colleges to give information about transferring and what courses they have to offer or if you can further your degree at their college. I haven't had the time to look into transferring to a four year college. I'm still undecided.

There isn't a big variety of classes offered here at NRCC but the classes that are offered have wonderful Instructors that are very experienced in the course, always very helpful and understanding. The work load is never overwhelming and there's so much help offered here at the college.
The value of your degree is how much you put into it. Your Instructor and student advisor is always willing to help any way they can and always point you in the right direction.

I believe the flexibility with my courses have always worked out pretty good. I only had to change my schedule at work one time in the three semesters I been here. The college offers day & evening classes and on-line classes to work with your schedule.
I have never had problems with on-line courses. The Instructors get back to me promptly if I have any questions. The work load is not over whelming and there is a lot of tutoring help at the college and some Instructors post help links in our class syllabus. If you need to meet with your Instructor, you can either e-mail, call, or or Instant message them to set up a date and time.
The career connection center here at NRCC posts various job openings into our student e-mail accounts throughout the week. They also, have Internship options and listings of temporary jobs in the area for students that cannot work full-time. The college also offers volunteer work and work-study. I'm currently enrolled in work-study and do volunteer work for the blood drives here at NRCC.

So far I have completed the Internship. I've earned work-study and have joined the Honor society at our school. You do get recognized you for all your hard work. They post job openings in our area every week and they also have a resume workshop to help you provide a professional resume to potential employers.
I really like New River Community College because the instructors are very helpful and patient. If you need help it's here. There is various ways to get help in your courses at NRCC.
this school is a great, affordable, and easy way to begin a college education. Teachers help students understand material, walk in tutoring is available, tuition is fairly low. also, the transfer programs they offer are excellent. if one completes a transfer degree at new river, they can receive guaranteed admission to any in state university.
Avoid online classes at all cost, they are horrific.
Class sizes seem manageable, Professors differ - some are better than others (communication, teaching methods, individual attention given to you as a student and you never really get to form a relationship with your on-line instructors). For me, this was difficult as I am the type of person who learns best audibly and visually.
I do not think that residence who do not live on campus should have to pay tuition to attend school. FASFA is anyone's first source, which I applied for on my own before approaching New River College about attending/programs, etc. Also, as a disabled single mother of a toddler, I think that more support should be offered by the school/local and state funds. Scholarships are really hard to come by and I have had to take out student loans for transportation, child care, books, a computer and software, and I still am not properly equipped to be the best student I am able to be.

My Student Advisor is very good and he handles the Education program. He is very talented and experienced in many aspects that are of particular interest to me, i.e.; Humanities and the Arts, etc.
