Dec 11 2012Other
Iv attended TNCC for one semester now and I wish I wasnt going for another semester. If you have to deal with the financial aid office, I am so sorry. They are HORRIBLE. They are rude, unhelpful and you have to continually go into the office to get everything figured out. They have a screwed up "policy" about how they decide how much financial aid you will actually get to go toward your classes and books and then the rest of the money goes on to where ever they put YOUR money too.They dropped me out of all of my classes and blamed it on me because they didnt finalize my aid. I originally signed up for 3 classes, i dropped one of them because the teacher was very rude and inappropriate. I stuck with my other 2 classes and I had no problems with either of them. There is no campus life at all, its pretty boring around campus. Some of the buildings smell moldy and very unclean. I would not suggest this school to anyone, the process of getting into the school and classes,is not worth the classes them selves.

Sep 01 2011PreMed and Medical
I attended this school for 2 years paying with my military benefits. Every year I had problems with the school and trying to get into classes with my VA benefits. No one seemed to know what to do, I was treated with disrespect by most of the faculty. The only helpful faculty were in the science department, they got me in my classes after having them dropped (which happens every semester, they like to forget to hold my classes when using my benefits even though I ALWAYS remind them). I will not go back here and I do not recommend anyone attend here.

If you want to be a trained chimpanzee, this might be the school for you. You'll be treated as such. The school does not care about you and they don't care about any of your rights. This school is currently facing a lawsuit(with ACLU backing) over freedom of speech violations among other things. This school also has a reputation of making it difficult to do anything. Often you have to go through dozens of loopholes. They are also known to get your checks lost and booting you out of class.

There are a few good teachers... but, the majority of them aren't. The English Department and whatnot seems to have the worst teachers as far as attitudes go. I might note that my first teacher on an IT specific class was highly incompetent.

There are a few teachers in this school that simply need to be blacklisted.I hear their pre-med courses are pretty good, and I had a 1credit class done by one of the pre-med teachers, and it was good... but remember, you need all sorts of other prereqs from other departments where you will face hellish teachers.
