I really like the practical, real life courses offered. Most of the professors I have had are professional and have worked in their respective fields, so they do have true experience and know what they're talking about. All my classes have been online, but we have classroom forums and blogs that require input from all students, and where the professors provide feedback on any input. A variety of modes are used for teaching including textbook, videos, PowerPoint, and external observations or experiments. We receive timely feedback on all weekly assignments, homework, and quizzes. Grades are viewable throughout each module so we can see how we're doing as students at any given time.

This is the one area I did have issue with. I was disappointed because my prior credits could not be transferred because of how old they were. I graduated with a secretarial diploma from a junior college back in 1988, but none of those credits transferred because they were over 4 years old.

I secured a designation of "Certified Administrative Professional specializing in Organizational Management" (CAP-OM) after a 2-day testing for certification in 2010. Some of my trainings as well as the completion of that certification should've provided for some transfer credits, but I was told again that anything over 4 years old will not transfer over. I thought for at least my certification, some credit should've been issued as that happened only 5 years prior.

We have good interaction in classes online via forums and blogs that are required for input and feedback. Our involvement in this gives evidence of our class attendance and provides interaction between our fellow students and our professor.

Registration was easy and convenient. I was able to do it all on campus, and if there was any follow-up paperwork needed, I was able to complete it online through email and DocuSign.

The curriculum is set up in a "rolling" structure to maximize time so we can graduate at various times of the year. Except for a vacation week in December during the holidays, classes are available throughout the year. This makes it possible to fast-track toward graduation as opposed to other traditional institutions.
