5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Classes are offered at all times of the day, which makes it easy for me to fit work and free time into my schedule. I don't feel overwhelmed and everything is balanced.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There are a abundant amount of classes offered at Harper. There should be no problem with finding classes that fit your schedule but I believe the professor selection could be better.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: It is really easy to add and drop classes if you need to. There are night classes and early morning classes that make it easy to get the credits and classes you need. I had not trouble with transferring credits because of the agreement Harper has with the school I chose. One difficult part is getting in to see a counselor, there are almost never any appointment times available, and the people that answer the phones there are not very nice.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Overall, I expect Harper's flexibility of the teachers to be average. While some professors are very open to students setting up appointments to speak to them or contact them through email, others only have a short period time that they're available through the week which can be stressful.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I never had a problem with transferring credits to Harper, but I do know that they accept almost all, if not all classes. The flexibility with classes is nice overall. You do want to make sure if you have a busy schedule because of work or other duties, that you register for classes within the week that registration begins. It will save you from the hassle which I think a lot of people have and then blame the school for.
