Am learning a lot
There are a plethora of talented teachers at Atlantic Cape Community College, so do not let the negative connotation associated with a community college prevent you from attending. I am currently in my third semester and plan to graduate in the spring. During my three semesters so far, I have had quite a few professors that I would genuinely rate as excellent. There are some professors that are a lot easier than others and do not hold their students to as high of standards as they should; however, I have yet to have a professor who does this. If a student chooses to take challenging courses while at Atlantic Cape Community College, they will most certainly be prepared when they transfer to a four-year college.
Am enjoying being here
I love learning and I have enjoyed all the professors that I have had thus far; however, some students do not take the learning process seriously and can detract from the overall progress of the class. Atlantic Cape Community College has excellent professors and a lot to offer to its students, but there are usually a handful of lethargic, nonchalant students who hold the rest of the class back from reaching its full potential.
Bang for the buck
I believe that Atlantic Cape Community College provides its students with a lot of bang for the buck. Students get acclimated to the college experience at their own pace, which makes it a great starter school. I chose to take my general courses at Atlantic Cape Community College to get my associates degree and then transfer to a four year college, which has saved my parents a great deal of money. Students will be taking the same courses at here as they would be taking at a four year school, but for only a fraction of the cost. Attending Atlantic Cape Community College to receive an associates degree is a very economical decision.
Tips for prospective students
Prospective students should be certain that they know the correct courses to take while at Atlantic Cape Community College and not rely solely on the help of the counselors there. A lot of times the counselors suggest classes that the student does not really need to take or the counselor tries to persuade the student into switching their major, which both result in the student taking superfluous classes.
Great for these types of students
Atlantic Cape Community College is great for students of all ages. The college offers a wide array of courses and at all hours of the day, which makes completing courses convenient for all the students' different schedules.

A lot of students are still undecided about their major when they reach college. Atlantic Cape Community College offers a lot of excellent general courses at a lower cost than that of a four year college; hence, it makes financial sense to attend Atlantic Cape Community College until the student can determine what he or she would like his or her major to be.

I highly recommend attending Atlantic Cape Community College to anyone and once again remind prospective students not to let the negative connotation associated with a community college deter you away from attending.

Did learn a lot
Despite the negative image alot of students have regarding community college, I learned a lot of new things from my time attending Atlantic Cape.
Did enjoy being here
While ACCC was a good school, I truly wanted to attend a four year university. Despite my plans to transfer, I enjoyed my classes and time on campus.
Bang for the buck
Tuition prices vary depending on the amount of classes a student takes, but is still very inexpensive. The campus classes are very reasonably priced, but the bookstore is not. I found the class materials to be very overpriced, especially since rental textbooks are generally so cheap.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure that any transcript requests are send a very long time beforehand. I have had problems recieving paperwork on time, and have heard similar stories from other students.
Great for these types of students
ACCC is great for students that aren't quite sure what they want to study, as well as for those looking to save some money on their education.
