Rating it 4 stars because it is excellent value for your money. It costs around $700 per semester for 12 units - you can't beat that. The gym is only open to students taking athletics classes, which was disappointing, and the only food onsite is food trucks and a small coffee shop. I had a couple of average professors and a couple of great ones. Overall worth studying here!
Review Your College
I realized that my father was right when he told me that everyone needs and education because without it, you will be nothing. He was right. After High School I raised a family and couldn't get to where I wanted to be in life. City College showed me a caring, educational, learning experience. It showed me that what I thought about High School and college and advancing in life could not be achieved without it. It has a staff of honest, caring, hard working people who don't judge and who have been in my shoes. I will continue to recommend this College to everyone. The staff are friendly and they take their time with you and make sure that you understand things. Without my college, I would be nothing.
It is always great to have the option to be able to take online courses when you want to manage your time a little more strictly due to other priorities you currently have on the table. The courses I have taken in the past that were online have been great! I learned just as much as I believe I would have in a traditional classroom course. The books chosen to be based off the teachings also have been great and understandable. Discussions with peers and the professors have been helpful also. Grades are always posted online so you can keep track of your grades.
