No matter what age or ethnic background you have this school will welcome you with open arms. As I grow as a academic I have learned to ask questions that help me get the results that accommodate success. However this is a personal process that we all go through when confronted with the unknown. As I have learned the answers are there It's up to you how much you want it. There is a amazing amount of support and encouragement (DRC,EOPS,) Help You were you are with what you have. Love This School!
Review Porterville College
All the staff I've encountered in my year and a half, as a student, have been very knowledgeable and helpful. Professors will go out of their way to accommodate to the students in order to optimize their learning. It is also fairly inexpensive. They offer various scholarships and over 15 different majors and several certificates. It's the better choice for a local community college in the area.
Porterville College is a small community college, yet it offers a wide array of courses for students to complete general education and lower division requirements. I fully recommend students in this area consider attending PC prior to enrolling in a four year university due to the low cost of attendance.
