Online Courses: My experience with online classes was great. I was able to do my work at home during the times I needed. The teacher always answered my questions in a descent time through email. You can still interact with other students in the same class with discussions on topics, which was wonderful. Also the workload was just as much as you would get as if you were in a classroom setting. All in all it was a great experience and helped out a lot.

Online Courses: Online courses have helped me alot with being able to take more classes I need for my curriculum. With working a full time job and going to school it allows me to take a few classes and be able to get things done as I can

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of the curriculum is great a student who has a full time job can still take classes and be able to achieve their dreams because of the Part time programs that the college offers. It might take longer to get than a traditional student who takes full time classes. But with the part time programs a student who works full time can be able to make the same grades as a student who is going to school full time
