5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love it and got used to it sometimes the assignments can be tough but its part of learning reaching out for the challenges.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The only computer I use is mine to do all my work since my classes are online.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Difference is that I get to do everything from my home because my college is online.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: At times my frustration comes when I have to do hw and othe things in my house and I don't have enough time. But the classes that I get have helped me a lot, I have learned a lot about children and the cause of their reactions and needs.

5 College Junior

Career Services: As far as job I hope that I qualify to be a teacher assistant or become a preschool teacher.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid is great it has helped me, but after all I still have to pay a lot. My father doesn't make much money and my mother doesn't work and its a big pressure to know my debt will keep growing. Overall the financial aid staff helped me on filling out all my paperwork.

4 College Junior

Student Body: I cant see how my classmates are because my classes are online

5 College Junior

Online Courses: To me its a great advantage since I can't drive myself to a campus school and I also can't walk since I had surgeries regarding a problem that I have with my legs. Assignments are well calculated and the work I get is fair enough its not a lot nor a little and even though its online I have learned a lot from it.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I love children and I will get to have fun in my future job and learn about the childrens growth development and what attributes their attitudes.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I do my classes online but, if I have a question my professors give us their email and phone number to contact them I usually just email them and they reply very quickly. My school is mostly associated with business

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The resources on Campus are great they have student center so you can get help with homework. Also they have studies groups and they also have a compture lab so when you need to go online for homework or class work.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I have honestly not taken any online courses with this campus, therefore do not know how to critic or give insight on them.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Medical Assitsing program at SBBC-Santa Barbara campus is a great program. It is very fast paced and the workload is heavy and demanding. The campus' career services does great with helping with the beginning of an externship process, as well as with the during the two months duration of it. The campus is also great with allowing us to volunteer at local health fairs. This gives us the great opportunity or interacting with many health care providers in our community and even having the chance of bonding with them. This allows us to already be putting our names out in the health field even before being able to really work in it.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: We are given our class schedules every term. We do not choose, they are chosen for us. The professors are great, and they do care about our success in their classes as well as with our whole education/future. As I have mentioned several times, everything is very fast paced so the workload is pretty heavy but do able. Our campus, Santa Barbara, offers the AA Medical Assisting program, BA Medical Assisting program, AA Business program, and BA Business program.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school is very pricey $33,000. Financial aid is set for the whole time you will be attending college during the registration process. So you do not actually have to meet with any financial aid advisor throughout your program. There are constantly a lot of problems with technology, we never have all the books arrived at time so it either sets our classes back a day, two, or sometimes even a week. The experience with financial aid was an easy one, it wasn't necessarily stressful or confusing. It was pretty much straightforward, walk in, watch powerpoint, take test, sign paperwork. While the education is great, I find myself not getting the money's worth, and constantly hearing that same complaint from many students around me.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Students are very career oriented. Most if not all have children and their own families to look out for now, so they are very focused on achieving the ultimate goal of learning and graduating. The campus is very diverse, and there foreign exchange students. However the medical assisting program is basically all female. You do however build strong friendships with those in the same program as you and it feels like a second family because you do spend a lot of time together as well as have to really trust your classmates.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: All classes are after 5pm. Most if not all teachers do teach or have other jobs outside of this campus so you have to definitely schedule any desired tutoring or such with them. We are given outlines with the whole terms assignments and they tend to always be in accordance, but there is flexibility depending on the teacher and upcoming events. None of my credits transferred here, and I took a placement test and was told i tested out of several classes however I am taking classes I have already taken in my previous college. The school dean is never on campus at the same time as we are so it is difficult to meet and discuss any issues with her. Career service staff is there for most if not all of the night. The receptionist, who is sometimes the only one allowed to do certain tasks, will be there for, max, an hour into classes.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: We only have two computer labs, however they also serve as classrooms, so they are not always available. We do have a small learning resource center which holds four computers. They computers are very slow though and tend to make things go longer than they should be. Or in the instances of several computers, they just do not allow you to even sign in, lowering the number of available computers. We are given a printing allowance of 1000 papers which we can print with no cost during our duration of the program. Anything past that, we have to pay for. We only have one printer for all computers, and it does get backed up but its mostly reliable.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: We have a corner that is our athletic center. It is just one machine and its never used, when used it is typically used as a seat instead of exercise. We do not have a library and the only campus activities we have are seasonal or our award ceremony, in which students are rewarded depending on a serious of categories. The campus is very small but nice and clean

4 College Senior

Career Services: Our student body is provided with great career services. However the campus in itself does not have an alumni network. Career services really help with setting up interviews and do a lot in order to help you obtain an externship. As mentioned before they do allow for paid externships as well and in many, if not all instances, you are hired right after completely externship if not before.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The tutition for this school is very pricey and unfortunately, in many instances, you do not seem to be receiving what you pay for. However, there are great teachers on this campus and the campus' classes are all after 5pm. This is great because I don't feel the stress of having to give up my current job to do school. My favorite experiences would definetly all take place within the Medical Lab. You really are put into an atmosphere of an actual job in the medical field. Everything is fast paced at my school which I honestly love because it allows me to always be busy and occupied. Unfortunately the program does run for 22 months. To everyone I have spoken with this is a really long time to complete a medical assisting program but we are given the opportunity to sit and take an exam in order to graduate as RMAs. Another perk added onto our education is the externship process, which takes up a total of about two months. In many instances we are hired right after our externship or our campus does allows us to participate in paid externships.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I've never taken any online classes before, this was the easiest process I have ever gone through. I can complete classes on my time through out the week and either submit class assignments early or on time.

Career Services: Some of the teachers really don't provide you with feedback on assignments. As a person who learns by mistake this was disappointing and frustrating. A lot of my teachers have provided me with feedback and it has been helpful.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm taking child development courses and so far everything seems to be going great. I thought it would be hard but so far my classes are pretty easy every course i'm taking has to do with my major in school. All my courses seem to be very interesting to me.
