Wichita Area Technical College Reviews
This college is good if you are trying not to spend too much money just to get the class taken. I choose to go here to save money. This is helping me get into the career profession I really want to be in. This is a school for older learners, so there is no party scene or athletics. This is a place to learn. They are open at night to help students go to work during the day and go to school at night. This helped me, to still earn money and learn at the same time
Financial aide process can be strenuous but overall a great college to get a degree! The staff tries to explain as much as you can expect. It can be more than other colleges but for the great teachers it is definitely worth it.
Wichita Area Technical College has proven to be a great investment in my education. Although only a community/technical college, they offer a wide range of areas to major in and even a "shocker pathway" which allows you to transition into majors at the 4yr college Wichita State. Being a small college there in no 'party scene', dorms or athletics but the lower price of tuition makes up for that. Overall I would recommend WATC to anybody looking to get started on a new career path.
