Outstanding value! Almost all the teachers I had were engaged, cared about the students and put a lot of effort into their preparations. I was on the baseball team and can only say GREAT things about the fairness of the opportunity to prove yourself and Coach Sprowl is fiercely loyal and honest with his players.

I am in The School of Culinary Arts and I enjoy it a lot, this is my second career I started school because my husband pasted away with cancer and I really needed something to do and Shelton State and it’s staff has been great at helping me cope and get back into society. They have flexible hours, the staff will assist you in all your career goals, they have updated technology, great resources and open communication. They also help me to receive a scholarship to help with books and tuition. I would recommend Shelton State to anyone who is interested and seeking a degree but not attending a huge university a college that has a hometown feel to it, and beside TUSCALOOSA is the home of Nick Satan and The Alabama Crimson Tide, RTR.
My experience at Shelton Community College is great. I'm starting my second semester at this awesome campus and, everyone is very friendly. One thing I would like to see change is more information on the financial aid process. I feel like as a Freshmen it would be nice to make that a topic for upcoming students. I also like the fact their seminars are very informative and very outspoken. This campus very good professor's. I would recommend this campus to any upcoming freshmen.
