Registering at this school was very easy. The admissions adviser explained everything thoroughly and guided me through everything with patience.
The professors, from my experience, have been outstanding. They are knowledgeable and insightful. They ensure themselves to know your weaknesses, your strengths, and give you plenty of feedback for you to improve. The skills they teach are legitimate and are the skills necessary for your career. Furthermore, their attitudes (as well as the rest of the staff of Mt. Sierra) are optimistic and enthusiastic, making learning all the more exciting, leaving one eager to learn more, and creating a comfortable environment at the school overall.
Also, for students who struggle in their classes, tutoring services are offered for free as well as access to labs. If you cannot access a professor, the head of the department would be willing to assist you at times as well.
In addition, once students graduate, they are granted access to free workshops within their department or repeat a course they feel they need further refinement. If a new version of Photoshop of Microsoft Office, for example, is released, the school will offer graduate students free workshops to familiarize themselves with the latest programs.
Furthermore, the workload at this school is abundant and effective for one to learn and withhold the material. Quizzes, in class activities, required participation, and numerous creative projects are given to students.

Classes and curriculum are great! Transferring out , not so much. It seems they are still considered a trade/vocational school which most universities won't take transfer credits from.

Well My Program consists of business and a lab, I have done that before in Math course at Junior Colleges, I have taken a night class before and done H.W. to be due 1 night a week so the workload was not bad. Curriculums are a Dime a Dozen it is up to the student to follow thru. Facilities are very prestige at this school. internship and job opportunities are what you make of it.
