Of all 36 hospitals in the Seattle, Washington metropolitan area.City University of Seattle does not have campus police or campus residences. It does, however, have persons on duty wherever classes are held, who are prepared to contact the local police immediately if needed. The local police would investigate any suspected criminal activity, and determine whether the report was unfounded, false, or a reported crime. The University has direct electronic monitoring burglar alarm systems.

I am an accounting major taking online courses, and I have found the overall program to be challenging, but not so difficult that I find myself struggling in my courses. The instructors are always available to help, as long as you plan ahead and give them time to respond to emailed questions. This is the primary method of communication with faculty in the online setting, but some instructors do provide phone numbers to reach them in an emergency situation.

There is great balance in the coursework, amply covering all of the topic areas that will be addressed on the CPA exam. The course material is covered in a variety of ways, as well. A typical course requires written assignments, discussion-type assignments, projects, quizzes, and exams.
