Financial Aid can be the determining factor in

Jun 23 2014Criminal
Financial Aid can be the determining factor in whether a young person gets the opportunity to succeed or is faced with a life of struggling. Even when financial aid is already awarded, the HCC personnel are inept at properly applying the money to pay for tuition & books. They are QUICK to drop students from classes but SLOW or NON RECEPTIVE to correcting their mistakes, add to this that teachers are not sensitive to allowing students back in, and the child is left with a huge balance, no transcripts, and possibly no future. Horrendous way of running a college.

Horrible excuse for a college

Horrible excuse for a college. You stand in line for two hours or more and they tell you to look on the website. Most teachers don't seen to care, and half don't speak English. Some teachers don't even teach, so if you can't teach yourself you're screwed. If you have the chance go to any other school other than this pathetic excuse of one.

I am a 33 year old student who should be graduating over the summer semester at HCC in 2015. I would have to say that I have had an overall pleasant experience. There are a few speedbumps in the school. Communication between Financial Aid, admissions and student advising could be improved. Sometimes I would get three different answers but Student Advising usually had their duck in a row.

After reading many of the reviews I felt like they may be a bit unfair. Everything is spelled out in black and white. If you truly read your syllabus and follow it you will get along in your classes fine. During my orientation at the school the staff member said, " This is college. No one here is going to hold your hand. It is your responsibility to make your time here a success." I took that to heart and I am maintaining a 4.0 and looking forward to possibly transferring to USF. I really like the school and would recommend it to anyone.
