    In the year that I have attended Shelton State Community College it has been filled with great teachers a lot of laughter and multiple study sessions. Shelton is a great environment to get the college feeling and also great help from Professors. The staff is amazing and also willing to help students with whatever they need.

    For the tuition you pay, the teachers are amazing. I can't say enough about the majority of the teachers employed here.

    Shelton is a really good school to attend if you are low on money. If you qualify for the full pell grant amount, you pretty much will be getting paid to attend as the pell grant amount is over the cost of tuition and even after paying for books, you will probably have a decent refund amount. However I have heard the nursing program is a different story when it comes to price but for those debating between Shelton and UA, they prefer Shelton for the price, if you can get accepted into the program.
