San Jose City College Reviews

San Jose City College is a prime and promising institution in terms of academics and integrating the rise of technology and artificial intelligence into it's overall theme and curriculum. In particular, I'd like to point out the award-winning college newspaper, City College Times, is an innovative, interactive print and digital paper that has a great staff and advisor. However, there are some things SJCC could improve upon, such as their financial aid office. There are always long wait durations, no phone services, and the staff at the front desk is unwelcoming to most inquiries regarding the financial aid process. Also there are no dorms on campus and taking into consideration the vast abundance of international students who study here, this should really be a priority. Other than that, San Jose City College is a promising 2-year college that I believe will advance in the coming years.

The professors took the time to teach. I walked away from several courses feeling motivated to continue my education. I felt equipped and prepared for what I now experience in the university. If there would be one improvement, it would be that each professor would do justice by grading accurately. I have seen and heard that some professors give passing grades so that they don't have to read papers. This is not beneficial to any student.
San Jose City College is a great school. They offer a variety of programs and courses. Although, they don't have some class needed the professors, faculty, and administration do their best to help students and lead them down the right path. The students here are very welcoming and easy going, there no reason to feel shy or scared. Over all the school is great community college.
