I love this school. There is always something to do and activites are always very publicized. They offer so many tools to help students succeed. You can access computers 24-7 and the faculty is very friendly and willing to help. The school wants everyone to succeed and tries to do whatever they can to to make that happen. The atmosphere here is just perfect for any one and every one!


Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

This college is transfer friendly for Tarrant County Junior College students to articulate the most hours for a seamless transition. Since the campus is much larger than a junior college prepare early for Financial Aid and set up your accounts online early. Check on Books before a semester starts.
