Review Southwestern Community College - North Carolina
The school has been wonderful and very helpful. They try the best they can to help in whatever way they can. It is very eay to register for classes and if they cant get you in one that works for your schedule and they will try to help find one that is the best for you. The teachers are also very understand about things that happen in your life and most all are very willing to grant extensions if needed.
It's great being able to study on what your interested in it really makes a difference when it has all of your attention and you just keep wanting more!
