NWSCC is much more accommodating in ALL areas than UNA. Their staff is also very understanding when adults go back to school that they have lives outside their classes unlike the frat/sorority students at UNA.
Also, although NWSCC is basically "put down" many times in this area because they are a community college, I can assure you that the education you will receive there is first rate. I have gone to UNA before and was once on a full scholarship to Birmingham-Southern College and actually feel that I am gaining more practical knowledge at NWSCC that will help me find good employment after I graduate. Of my friends who went to NWSCC and those who went to a 4 year institution such as UNA, the graduates from NWSCC (with only a 2-year degree)have had much better success in finding employment in their field.
