Florida Institute of Technology is a good school to attend online. The classes can be difficult but also manageable. The instructors are always available for you when needed. They offering tutoring and assistance with difficult course that you have trouble with during each term. The college really cares about each student that attends the school. If they notice or detect that an assignment wasn't done in a timely fashion or you are falling behind on your assignment they immediately send an email telling you to contact your professor concerning an assignment that wasn't completed. I really love Florida Institute of Technology because it is a well known college and it is accredited. I can transfer my classes to another college if I plan to attend another college in the future for my Bachelor Degree. Florida Institute of Technology allows adult like me with a busy schedule to attend college when it's convenient for me. FIT isn't as expensive as many online colleges.

It is a great school to learn more than what is taught in classes. You can get involved in research and participate in a lot of clubs since the school is small. Professors care about you and if you work with them for a certain amount of time you are sure to get a TA position if you are willing to stay for grad school. It pays off and you learn. A lot of employers around that hire US citizens mostly. You get to meet people from all over the world, some are weird, others are really fun.
