Completely up to You. I'm taking a medical terminology course online, and there is no schedule! No due dates at all, but of course you need to finish everything by the end of the quarter. It sounds like a good thing, however, it is easy to get off track, so I suggest creating your own schedule and sticking to it! It does give you the flexibility of taking time off, and tailoring it to your life which is pretty great!

Be Prepared to Pay for Books, Tuition, and Fees at Your Own Expense – The curriculum is great. I love the &quot;hands on&quot; training which is much appreciated in this economy. Sometimes i feel that the environment is too relaxed causing students to procrastinate on test and homework assignments. Also many issues with financial aid checks being dispersed in a sufficient time frame, some students have to wait weeks or months to be funded, and are unable to get the books and materials they need. Other than that, pretty decent college.

Machinist Program – They transferred my credits that fit the curriculum. Awesome teachers, one daytime and one nightime, both very competent, accessible, knowledgable, interactive, teach well, quickly grasp concepts and how to run machines. I can't believe how much knowledge and experience I've gained in one quarter. I knew a few things the temp teacher didn't think of. I am feeling more and more confident to be able to become a full time machinist. I would not be anywhere else.
