South College - Knoxville Reviews
I have been to several other colleges to get my associates and bachelors and South is by far subpar to other schools. The classes are academically the same as other colleges (not easier), but the professors seem to not know much about the courses they are teaching. It's always seems that I have to read the course books several times/research everything I can about the courses online to teach the courses to myself. I feel bad for the students who rely on the professors for learning. I feel like I know more about teaching the classes that the South College professors. Need better teachers!!
The college is well maintained. Physical education classes are not offered because South charges the same amount per quarter no matter how many hours you take. Phys.ed wouldn't make South money, so they don't offer it. The cost per quarter varies from 5200-6950/quarter and depends on the major. I am taking the same pre-reqs as business majors and I am paying 2,000 more than they are per quarter but taking the exact same classes. Yes,2,000 more and taking the same classes. I can see once I get into my program field I will pay more, but not for the same classes that everyone takes. South College's tuition is more than UTK. My bestfriend is a professor/department head at South and she states that South is all about making $$Money and I somewhat agree. If it doesn't make the school money, they aren't going to do it for the students. I do enjoy going to South College, but I do wish I would have thought it over before I enrolled.
The School itself is great; teachers and clinical educators are top notch. However, dealing with their financial aid office is hassle and you get surprised by random bills that state "you have a balance due before the end of the quarter and before you can enter next quarter," which can throw you off. Nevertheless, the education you receive is quality.
