It's easy to navigate through the 'moodle rooms' of the online schooling sections. The layout is simple, and with a click or two, you can find your way anywhere. Both times I've enrolled with Charter College, there's been a system called the 'Charter Starter' specially designed as an orientation of sorts for new online students. It takes the time to go through how the classes are laid out on line, how to access them, how to submit work (which can be done in a variety of ways), and how to contact both peers and your teacher alike. Surprisingly, there's a lot of versatility available with online classes, and I've found they're often just as productive as on campus classes, and often more convenient, as it's a twenty minute drive from my home to college, and that's only without much traffic. Charter has gone the extra mile to make sure their online courses are comparable to their on-site classes, and teachers go out of their way to ensure online students get what they need out of the courses!

Tuition is high, but that's the truth anywhere, honestly. And for the newer classes and implemented clinical labs for medical and dental students especially, the tuition is worth it! The Financial Aid department has actually been a much more pleasant experience for me the second time around (though it was fantastic the first time, too). Filling out all the loan paperwork and grant paperwork alone would have been incredibly tedious and difficult if I'd been doing it on my own. The worker helping me did an incredible job and really made the process easier on me by explaining things I wasn't sure about and helping me through the process in a step-by-step fashion. I never had to sign something I didn't understand, or even bat an eyelash in an uncertain way at the paperwork.

No matter what branch of study a person is going into, it isn't hard to find like-minded individuals at Charter. Everyone there has the same kind of ideal in mind. They want a new career, or want to further their current one, and are willing to work to get what they want out of life. Classes are full of on-topic discussion between the teacher and the students, and even between just the students, bouncing ideas and questions off one another to create a better understanding of material. In the halls and break room during breaks, there is a lot of chatter. It's not unusual for groups of students ban together and talk about whatever brought them together - not always their choice in career or study. No two people really look alike or think alike in all things, but there's a general kind of acceptance and willingness to listen and partake in discussion. It's a very adult setting, and it's wonderful!
