Cheap school with cheap people. Something was always wrong. Every semester I found myself running around trying to get help registering because of issues with the school system, so much time wasted over such pointless problems. The staff is not helpful. They don't just know nothing about what happens in the school - they don't even know what is happening in their own department! Some professors really try though, and they made it worth it.

Overall - go there if you are poor and desperate, like me.

The online courses are good for people that don't have enough time to attend classes on campus; the registration process is quite easy if you know how to do it. Sometimes the assignments are easy, and you have to submit them via Internet. Also, there are some proctored assessments that you have to do in the indicated campus. The relationship between student and professor is via e-mail; sometimes the professors make a mini class via video to allow students ask a question if they have.

First, my major that I want to study is Accounting. I am taking classes to get an Advanced Certificate in Accounting. I stopped taking these classes because I want to apply for scholarships to help me pay the cost of them. I need 5 more required classes to get my Certificate, and transfer to a four year university. This college offers a variety of different types of certificates, so that's why I chose this college to finish my Advanced Certificate in Accounting.
