Anyone can get in, they are desperate for studentsJan 09 2016Art & Design Department
Anyone can get in, they are desperate for students and will lie about everything to get you in. That is why they have a 70% drop out rate. Don't waste your time and money!! You will regret it later when you could have gone somewhere better!!

Not muchSep 30 2015Undecided
Not much. Get your paperwork in, check on it often and keep track of who you speak with and when. Send anything via certified mail. If you have prior college credit, scrutinize what transfers and REALLY take a look at that Excess Hours Bogeyman. Make sure some of yours really apply-there are quite a few exclusions. Even if you think you'll graduate on time and this won't be a problem; get that fight out of the way early.
And if you don't know what major you want: don't get pushsed into declaring early or declaring for something you're not sure of. It's a lie that you must declare your Freshman/Soph years. Find the regs on everything and use them. You'll be the only one there keeping it real but just know you won't be popular for knowing the rules when they've been doing what's easiest/fastest/most convenient for years.

They will lose your stuff so have like 3Jun 25 2015Social Work
They will lose your stuff so have like 3 to 4 copies of everything. They are slow in response and don't ultimately care for one individual student so even though th e school is small it's not a family atmosphere

So far I am not impressedAug 18 2014Nursing
So far I am not impressed. I have not been able to make it past the admissions process yet. I am a veteran. I have made multiple phone calls to my admissions advisor & the military veterans resource center requesting a call back with no response. Getting a hold of anyone is like pulling teeth. So I call the admissions office who transfers me to someone, who in turn transfers me to someone else, only to be transferred back to the initial person. When I finally reach someone in the military veterans resource center, they are not very helpful, friendly, or enthused in assisting me. I feel like I am having to jump through hoops to get into the university & I am having to jump through hoops to finish the next steps for registering for classes. I am trying to find someone who can assist me with the next steps after the acceptance process, but so far no luck. I was told around 8:30 am that my call would be returned by the military veterans resource center & it's going on 11am & still no word. This is not a good way I feel I'm starting off. There seems to be no guidance or assistance so far after you are accepted. I will keep seeing how this goes, but I am already getting the impression that I may have to take my time & money elsewhere. Will come back with update to see if anything changes, but this is my review & rating for right now.

I attended StDec 09 2013Archaeology
I attended St. Petersburg Community College, in Tarpon Springs, Florida (near Tampa). I earned my AA degree there and then applied to transfer to University of West Florida. I was accepted.

It was very simply to get in once I had my AA degree. I tried before I had my AA but was turned down. I am glade that I was originally turned down because the educational quality is similar to the community college.
