SUNY Schenectady County Community College Reviews

I chose SUNY Schenectady Community College because they have a well-known Criminal Justice program. So far, I am enjoying my core classes.

Before the Covid pandemic, I was planning to take my classes at the campus, and I like that it is very close to many communities in the Capital District region.

The school is very affordable, and the counseling, administrative and teaching staff have been very welcoming and helpful. Every time I have a question, I feel there are many people available that are willing to help.

I like the classes they provide, and they are part of the state (SUNY) system so a student can go on to any of the four-year schools after they earn their associates’ degree.

There is also another community college in the area that is larger and more well-known, and I don’t think that SUNY Schenectady gets the recognition and credit it deserves.

I was supposed to start my classes in person, but due to the Covid pandemic, all of my classes were converted to the online environment. I didn’t think I was going to like this at first, but after the first couple days of classes, I realized I was able to learn the same material as if I were there in person.

The online environment also worked well with my work schedule as it provided the flexibility to keep my job while going to school.

With a student being new to online learning, the professors were helpful for students who were struggling with an online format.

Overall, the college has been doing a great job of keeping students safe without hindering their education.
