Broward College is one of the worst, ifSuper BrilliantComputer Science
Broward College is one of the worst, if not the absolute worst, choices offered for degree-seeking students in the entire State of Florida. Their Associate Degree programs are designed to set students up for debt and failure, not success. The credits do not transfer to State accredited universities. Their Bachelor's degree programs also do not accept credits transferred in from State accredited universities. Their entire business model is based on selling debt and streamlining students with debt into fake entry level positions at local businesses which seek only to retain long-term employees at the lowest wages possible. This school also sells unnecessary certifications on top of degree credit which holds no value at all. Many of the professors have blood shot eyes and seem to be abusing controlled substances in order to enhance their influence on the decisions of younger minds. They also condition the students into believing they are making progress, but in reality, the exams require almost no effort and course content does not apply and real world skills. Many of the professors also attempt to establish defensive barriers to shield themselves from criticism such as writing a syllabus which states "the book is requires" and verbally telling the people who attend classes "the book is not required" but never clarifying any ambiguity or illogical examples until questioned. Essentially, Broward College teaches their students how to make excuses and emulate professionals. It is apparent they have no intention of improving the services they offer. Their primary focus is targeting lower income and lower social classes to psychologically condition those people into believing they have made progress but leaving them with debt and no chance of long-term success.

Question
The College is affordable, and well respected.BrightComputer Science
The College is affordable, and well respected. I believe that I have received quality education. Of the 20 something Professor/ Instructors I have had I can honestly say there were only 2 that were below average and one that was absolutely terrible, as far as his interpersonal skills were concerned. I do have a problem with the cost of books and learning materials. I don't like the fact that you have to pay over a hundred dollars for online materials that are only available for 6 months to a year, not to mention often contain outdated learning material, which in the Computer Technology field can be crucial. . However, there is plenty of help in the form of tutors and access to the lab and learning center. The main problems I encountered with Broward College came in the way of their administrative functions, they can be somewhat inept and negligent when dealing with issues concerning Financial aid, and admission matters. The wait times are very long and it is very difficult to establish or maintain lines of communication, needed to resolve issues. All and all this School is a decent school, especially given the fact that it is just transitioning over to a four year institution. But as with all things it could stand for some improvements, which I'm sure they are aware of, and are in the process of doing.

If you can afford it, go to a university, preferably a private one.
