Academic Flexibility: Harcum is a special interest college, so it's going to be hard. It is very fast paced; there's no flexibility because each course is a building block for the next course. And, God forbid you receive a non passing grade. You either have to take in the summer (if it's offered which mine wasn't) or find a college that offers it during the summer.

And, because Harcum is a small sized college, you don't have the luxury of picking a different Professor if you don't like the one you have. You are stuck with that bad Professor... and will probably have the same bad Professor for more than one course.

Academic Flexibility: They transferred over all my core classes/ degree requirements and i am even taking a summer class at a community college this summer, to save money, that they will transfer over when i return in the fall.

Academic Flexibility: My advisor is pretty good at working with my needs, its not perfect, but I find this area to be pretty fair.

2 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: as far as transferring my undergraduate classes, the program was very understanding. There is only 1 time slot for our lectures and we are assigned our lab times.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The financial aid department dropped the ball last year by botching everyone's aid packages after the head guy in charge died, I am still waiting for my refund check from fall of last year.
