4 College Senior

Academics: The curriculum is rich and rigorous. Sometimes the workload is overwhelming especially in the first and last weeks. However, if you communicate with your professor, things can be worked out. As an online student, I cannot speak to the facilities and/or internships etc.

4 College Senior

Academics: Some professors are very picky making the course a chore. The courses are rigorous and one can expect to work hard, however the professors are very helpful. I never understood the online registration process but academic advising was always ready to step in and fix my application. I have successfully had academic waivers and/or class substitutions due to work experiences but for the most part, the curriculum is set.

5 College Senior

Academics: Im currently under the Helms school of Government studying Criminal Justice. All the professors I have encountered online and residentially have been extremely knowledgeable in their field of study. No matter how big or small your class is the professors make an effort to know each and every student on more of a personal level.
