My experience was great, with a lot of great professors who give you a lot of one on one time if needed. Also the recourses are amazing! The writing center and math center helped a lot! There are tutors in both and in the library as well which have your books you need for cheap! Campus is small which helps with getting where you need to go!

My experience at YVCC has been pretty great overall. I have been a running start student for over a year and the academics are way more suitable for me than high school.

Running Start: Definitely, do it if you're either advanced because this will give you a chance to actually earn college credits for free while you're still in high school.

College: If you're in the area, I would highly recommend getting a degree here even if you are planning on going to a 4-year because you can save money and time by getting a transfer-DTA degree.
My experience with online courses has been great! Our online system, Canvas, is easy to understand and easy to access. The workload is about the same as a course that is in-class. The registration process for an online course is also identical to the registration process of an in-class course. Professors are great about messaging students and answer any emails very quickly. Peer-to-peer in great because most teachers assign discussions that require students to interact with each other.
