Academic Flexibility: Depending on the professor or adjunct you are dealing with, there is room for flexibility. Credits transferred were only electives, had to take not to mention pay for a class I had already passed at another school with a B.

3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: The courses are very flexible, so I can attend school but also attend to my disabled brother at home. Also, when it comes to the flexibility of the staff, it really depends on the person. Everyone is different.

In all honesty, the only problem students are likely to have with any academic department would be inconsistency on their own part. If you do what is asked of you, regardless of what holds you down, you can fight back. Students are given the opportunity to appeal alleged academic violations with the academic committee of the school. Proof of your claims is required to convince members of this committee. Document all of your actions related to academics—you may need it someday.
