3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Very nice campus out here in the mountains , beautiful mountains behind the college.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Never had any problem with having access to a computer. Print anything you need to on campus. Not very much need for personal computer or printer. The only reason I have a personal computer is because I have three kids and do my online classes at home.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: All the people I have worked with such as financial aid, my advisor, professors have all been very helpful. I truly believe that everyone there wants to see students succeed. I would definitely choose this school again.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Whole new aspect for me never being around the medical field. I have learned more than I could have ever imagined. The nursing program has been a great experience for me . I worked in the coal industry for 13 years before being laid off. The curriculum has been challenging for me, but I have worked hard and plan on being finished in December 2014.

5 College Sophomore

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

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process in pretty much straight forward you just fill out the FAFSA form online and submit it and the college have a place on their website to go and view your financial aid. The people who work in the finanical aid office are willing to set down and assist you in anything envolving your financial aid needs

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: At my college I can go either part time or full time in any of the programs. They allow this to ensure the success of all students. All of the programs have people a student can go to for extra help if needed. They professors are really intuned with the students and all have experience with the subject they teach.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: With the class registration process a student can either go on the college website to enroll in the classes they need or they can have their advisors to help them with enrolling in classes.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education I am getting is well worth the price I am paying. I love the fact that I do not have to spend a fortune for a good education. The people in the financial aid office are somewhat helpful, make sure you stay on top of them and always ask questions.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The school really has an abundance of classes and programs to be offered ranging from nursing, to criminal justice, to end just a general studies certification. The campus is four large buildings all is close range with one another so parking at any of the parking lots around campus isn't a hassle to walk even to the furthest building. Meaning small size, the professors really get to have a one on one relationship with the student. I'm my experience at mountain empire my classes have never been above a 50 student count which is really nice. The only down fall is the class registration is online, in my 3rd semester now, I have the system pretty much figured out but for all new students I've known with myself included, have struggled majorly to get classes added and signed up for.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Mountain empire offers a system called blackboard and through this you can summit work, communicate with the teacher, back and forth with students and also view your grades in all on convenient location. It was nice not having an instructor to deal with hands on, but also nice to still get the materials covered as they would have in a classroom setting. The workload was very much like a weekly class and very easy to follow along with expected assignments.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Mountain empire has gone above my expectation of a well accredited nursing program. I haven't had to take any crazy electives not associated with my major. It really makes me feel like I'm not wasting my time and really on a fast track for my degree.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: While the library offers a decent amount of computers, there is not a wide variety of books to choose from. There are the basic books but if you need detailed book for a topic, you will have to get online for that. The "athletic center" offers a short supply of workout equipment.

Campus Resources: There is a grill here, so there is always good food. This grill also offers a place to hangout and study when there is a break. There is also a game room that offers restitution when you have had a long day of studying and tests.
