I like the school because it makes getting a degree a very attainable goal, especially for those of us stuck in a small town. Like any school it could use some changes; there are certain aspects already being worked on, but one thing I have yet to notice an awknowledgable change in is the online system they have set up. Yes, they've been "working on it", but it's been a few years now and it's still down every other day, or the links don't work, or some other technical issue (blame the IT guy in charge of it). As fast as technology has been moving in the past decade you would hope that our education system would take advantage of it all and help us to continue to move forward. Like, at least let me register for classes online without having to physically go to school and seek help from a counselor who is always busy.
Review Southwest Texas Junior College
Very good first college experience! It was nice to dip my toes into college in my close knit community. I had a very good college education due to SWTJC. I do not regret getting my A.A here. It was quite the enjoyable experience with very good professors!
My school has been fairly convenient with my requests. For example, I've always asked to take classes in morning and as close as possible because that is more convenient with my schedule and they have always planned my routine according to those guidelines I set. Transferring credits have been a hassle however. There was an instance I was missing some credits the college forgot to take. As well as problems with me being put in a class I already took and a textbook fee taken from my funds despite me having returned that exact book. It can be sometimes of a hassle but when the college gets things right it's pretty great.
