    I definitely think you get great value for classes. They are much cheaper per credit hour than the nearby university. They are the same courses and will transfer. They also have a cosmetology program which was a better value than the private beauty colleges. The dining package is priced well also.

    Not only is Pearl River College affordable, but the one on one attention you get with teachers is beyond parallel. Pearl River College has made me a better student. I have done better in college than I ever did in high school.

    I havent been to school for 20 years so I was very nervous about returning. The first day of class all of my teachers told us about themselves before asking about us and I thought that was really great. These wonderful teachers are always reminding us that they are here to help us and will do anything they can to make sure we understand what we are learning in class. I love this school and the people at the school.
