    Its a great price but sometimes the books are a bit outrageous so be sure to check Craigslist for better deals for books.

    For me, it is free due to financial aid and some scholarships but compared to other places, I can't see why everyone doesn't choose JCC.

    Overall a decent school. The price is not bad, be aware if you do go here to follow your financial aid. I had mine canceled randomly into the semester due to a paper work error (TWICE). Finance was able to eventually sort it out. This is a SUNY institution so as long as you complete the general ed requirements you can be places as a Jounior upon graduation at another SUNY institution. Be aware that I had to fight for almost all my transfer credit and they didn't evaluate my transcripts until after the semester had started. The class sizes are small which is excellent and very conductive to learning. It is easy to ask questions and have a true class discussion. The age is highly varied of students on campus. This is nice as I don't always feel like the oldest person on campus. They do offer a few four year degrees with partner schools you can get on campus.
