When I first enrolled in this college, I was terrified! I thought it was going to be extremely hard. Harder than high school! But to my surprise it is easier than I thought it would be. My instructors are good at what they do. They know how to focus on the main things that need to be learned and fit that into the short amount of time for each class. The students are nice, polite, and respectful. The instructors are always sending e-mails to you to remind you of upcoming assignments due, they post grades in an orderly manor, and they just encourage you to do your best.

I am returning to school after 30 years of work. The Admission, Financial Aid and Administration folks didn't make me feel like I was being "Back to School Rodney", in fact they have been the most helpful, caring and informative professionals I have had the pleasure of dealing with in years! They have made me feel like they are right here, rather than in another state. I feel like I can call on the staff at any time, for any reason.

You guys ROCK!

I am currently a student here at Independence University. I am studying business administration and accounting. I have enjoyed my classes and teachers so far. It is an amazing school to attend online. The teachers are great they make sure you know everything about a subject, their good with responding to messages and emails in a timely manner. They have a lot of resources i can use if i need help with my class work, if i need info for a paper, if i need to know something about my financial aid as well. Independence university is the first college i have attended. I know i will do well. Everyone is very helpful and kind.
