Santa Fe College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
Santa Fe College is an amazing local college. I sought to finish my Bachelor's Degree to open up opportunities within my current employer. SFC's online BAS program was perfect for my busy professional and personal schedule. I was able to set the pace and the advisers were fantastic with direction.
It feels to me like they don't really want to help their students. I had to appeal for financial aide and was told I gave too much information and then not enough. This was after they told me I didn't complete something that I did complete. They then made me file a second appeal just to continue my first one. You only get 3 appeals. It feels like they don't want to help. I'm sorry my wife and kids had medical issues. If not for my kids I would have given up. They have some great teachers though.
Santa Fe College is a great option, whether you are a new student or a transferring from another school. Their online class options have been especially helpful to me as I am expecting my first child in January and work full time. The online classes gave me the flexibility to work the amount of hours that I need to in order to support my family, while still being able to further my education. The instructors are great and keep you in constant contact with other students in the class. Everyone at the college from the staff answering the phones to the professors are extremely helpful. I would recommend Santa Fe College to anyone in the area!
Santa Fe College is a small school with small classes. Most classes, depending on the subject, have no more than 30 students. This makes it easier to have conversation with professors for help and problems. Most professors are good, but like always check ratemyprofessor first! With that being said, some classes are lecture style, some are open discussion, depending on the professor. Hope this helps if you are looking to come here!
SFC is a wonderful place to begin your college experience. With small classes, interested instructors, and a variety of online classes make it a wonderful school. The only reason I left SFC was because they did not offer a four-year Psych degree (yet!)
Getting an education is important no doubt, and overall my experience to obtain my two year degree was good. The classes were good and the teachers were almost always able to make me think differently by the end of the semester by how much I learned. The prices of classes is very reasonable as well. The only downfall I encountered numerous times at Santa Fe was in financial aid and administration. All of the workers in financial aid were always very heartless and unwilling to explain or aid me in my journey through college even if I begged and pleaded just for an explanation. They often would cut my grants and never give me a reason for it. From the start I recall clearly my first day as a freshman getting chastised by a lady in the financial aid department who told me I should have had memorized my student number before stepping foot on campus. Other than the unfortunate encounters with financial aid, the overall experience was good and I would recommend the school to others.
