Charter Oak State College (COSC) was incredibly convenient for me. First, they took my 100+ transfer credits and tried to apply them as best as possible to meet the concentration that I chose. Second, any general education courses that I was missing, I knew that I could easily use American Council on Education (ACE) certified courses or exams to either learn the material, or prove that I already knew it. This second point is huge for me. A lot of institutions limit the amount of transfer credit, first of all, but they also do not take ACE credit very readily, as is my experience with the California State University System. The third reason I liked COSC, is because all of my instructors worked in the field that they taught, and on top of that, EVERY member of the COSC faculty that I talked to was incredibly professional, courteous, and willing to answer any questions. Last of all, throughout my Public Safety Administration studies, I learned incredibly valuable information that I can and have already applied to my job with great results - this education is applicable and effective. I highly recommend COSC to anyone looking to maximize what they already know, and who want a good education in their field(s) of study.

This school has been the perfect choice for me, someone who holds down 2 jobs and lives far from any 4 year college campus. They have allowed me to compile credits from other colleges, standard tests like the CLEP, portfolio experience, independent study, and online courses. They have been great about keeping contact with me and encouraging me to keep going. The advisors are always available and helpful, their response time is great. The faculty are very professional and knowledgeable. This school has been a great experience for me. I would definitely recommend them to someone who is in a similar situation as I am. They are also well-priced.

I registered and paid to attend this school. As soon as I started digging a little deeper, I found out a lot of things that didn't sit well with me, so I withdrew immediately from the school. One thing I didn't like is that this school touts that they are so affordable, in reality they charge a lot of fees. If you don't go to school for a semester, you get charged for the semester you didn't attend, on top of the current semester you do attend. When I paid to attend, they never sent me a college email, I had to write a person there and let them know I never got one. Even though the school has a lot of online programs, and I am sure they have a lot of out-of-state students, there seem to be more scholarships for in- state students than any for out-of-state students attending( I found a school that offers online student scholarships). The school sure was quick to offer me loans to help put me in debt though.
