Wake Technical College is a great segway into college from high school and it helps you save money while doing it. Also it has allowed me to begin gaining college credit as a junior in high school. There is no prolonged application process like other colleges, your acceptance is pretty much guaranteed. They provide the option to take online or seated classes like other colleges as well. During this pandemic, they have still done a great job with communicating with me about questions I have in a swift manner. Also they have made registering for classes very convenient by using an online service. As a new CCP student, I also have access to pretty much all facilities that that any other Wake Tech student has access to. In addition, I will receive an official Wake Tech ID, and if I choose to, I can even get a free parking pass, which is an added bonus. Overall my experience with Wake Tech has been very good!
great cheap alternative for college, flexible with the right teachers. Great atmosphere! Great student life is offered on campus as well to add a friendly environment to the campus. Advisors do a great job with helping students find which route to take in career paths. The college offers great career help to get people in a job quickly after finishing the two years. Since they offer such a flexible schedule students will be able to make things work around their own schedules to eliminate a lot of stress. If you want to play sports they also offer sports such as baseball basketball golf and more. This also allows athletes a cheaper route to go before stepping up to a larger school. Certain majors have very cool clubs you can join like, robotics and stem clubs so you can pair with other people who fit your style and personality.
Overall the school is great if your commute is short, if it is long it can make it tough with traffic, but getting a solid, cheap, fun education is important.
