The work load of the online classes is challenging because it is your responsibility to manage your own workload, since you are also responsible for completing what would be considered "class work" on your own time. The discussion boards aren't a very good substitute for in-class discussion, but I have always had great professors that are very willing to answer questions through email and who are also very prompt with their responses. The courses are very easy to register for, but they fill up quickly!

I receive my tuition's worth 100% at this college! I received undivided attention and assistance from the Financial Aide Director and my financial aid money arrived without any problems. My tip is to make an appointment with the Financial Aide Director, as well as to not forget any important information (such as current or last year's tax information, or anything else he asks you to kindly bring in. He was the best College Financial Aid Director I have ever encountered! Very passionate about helping the College Students succeed through his help.

I have only started Central Penn this semester, and have not had too much experience dealing with the staff so far. But, they are very prompt with returning emails, and phone calls; also, they are very consciencious of individual students and making sure the student has what they need to succeed!
