Crafton Hills College employs a wide range of professors from different backgrounds. With a mix of trained educators and working professionals that are specialists in specific fields, the College generally has good professors. There is always a time when a particular student and professor will not work well together; however, the overall impression the student body holds of the professors is a good one. A related core piece of the overall experience at Crafton is academic freedom. Even if a student is going for a specific degree or program, he or she generally has the ability to pick from many classes given by many professors. This allows a person to avoid professors with which he or she does not connect well. It also makes meeting the requirement list for a degree or an articulation agreement easier.
Articulation, or a prearranged transfer with guaranteed credit transfer, is a very common academic goal at Crafton. Even USC, a famous state school, has an articulation agreement with Crafton. To uphold these agreements, Crafton is required to maintain a certain level of instruction quality. This helps ensure that the professors are of good quality and knowledgeable in their fields, that grading is reasonable, and that students will be able to continue at a different college or university. What is not guaranteed is a person's experience with other students. However, Crafton has a very diverse population. There is a very good chance that anyone will find like-minded people to be with, and it is assured that everyone will meet a range of people they would not encounter elsewhere. This makes for a very fulfilling classroom experience that adds to the overall educational experience.
