“Not a Great School”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

You're shoved down the line with a million other students. If you're going into a competitive degree program, be prepared to stay longer than 2 years! You're competing with students not only from the local area, but Mexico as well. It's so competitive that even Radiology degree seeking students were required to repeat classes they received B in just to be able to apply. Taking that into consideration, if you are one of the FEW that ACTUALLY PAY for their own education, this gets expensive. If you're military or military dependent, STEER CLEAR! You won't be stationed here long enough to complete a degree from this school!

“EPCC--the BEST place to start!”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

Part of my paid employment is provide students with information about their future possibilities/careers, and one specific starting point is El Paso Community College. Why? Because the first two years, which can lead to an Associates Degree and quite transferable to a 4-year institution, cost so much less than immediate 4-year enrollment. If a high school Senior, after graduation and receiving their diploma, can still live at home, that two years translates to a savings of 12-15,000 dollars or more! That will buy a LOT of schooling. Besides promoting EPCC as an excellent education, I have attended EPCC myself, though I had to 'drop out' due to my own job requirements. Incidentally, I began at a community college many years ago on the East Coast, during my military duty, when my first ship was undergoing topside repair in Perth AmboyNJ. Education was inspiring then, and now it is necessity! There are five campuses located all around El Paso, with online options as well. EPCC is the BEST place to start!
