4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Really flexible, nothing is really difficult they don't make you do something you don't want to. They let you choose.

Academic Flexibility: My experience when and while I was registering and enrolling in my classes has been a great as of now. As well being able to transfer credits for one of the previous colleges I attended.

Academic Flexibility: I am enrolled in MSB - Online classes, as those are the best fit for me. The staff has been very helpful in setting up my financial aid, offering recommendations of classes that I should take first because they are prerequisites for other classes that I am required to take to earn my degree, answering questions and helping me become familiar with their policies and procedures and the various tools that they offer to help me succeed, both while in school and after I graduate. I do not have credits to transfer, so I have no experience in that regard. I also have not started my classes yet, but feel prepared to do so when they start March 31st. They have helped make my experience a lot less scary!

Academic Flexibility: Although the flexibility is better than other private and public colleges, it is not the best. I was a transfer student with two and a half previous years at another college, but non of my credits transferred! when I applied I showed the admitions representative my college transcript, showed them my passing AP scores and highschool-college level classes which were in partnership with the UofM and was told that much of them should transfer as long as MSB had a similar course. Being diligent I looked at the syllabus of my past classes and compared them to MSB elective and required course. I found that a lot of them were similar, computer classes, economic classes, math classes, ect., but all of the transfer credits were denied. I appealed the decision and made my case, pointing out the similarities between the two syllabi, but was told that "although the classes are similar, we can not guarantee that they were taught to our standards." MSB does offer a test out option, but this is only for a very few classes. I did try to test out of whatever class I could, but they structure the tests unreasonably hard. I have taken up to physics and calculus and did well in both classes, but when I took the test out for the required algebra course I found they included a lot of advanced physics and calculus questions.

Academic Flexibility: I am maintaining an A average in all of my classes. I chose Globe University (Minnesota School of Business) due to the flexible schedule, and the career-oriented curriculum. After I met with my admissions advisor and other administrators, I was impressed. I am confident I will complete my first term with an A average, and will be carrying 20 credits next term!
