From an over-priced, for-profit company to the run down library portable with 19th century computers running on the worst broadband, thing have never been so misrepresented. This school lacks all of the integrity of a fine university; hence why it's not called SJVU! It lost its PA program last year, it's Nursing program is not passing state requirements, and paying tens of thousands of dollars to make a few bucks over minimum wage in jobs is not worth the debt accumulation. This school is not reputable, and worries more about its image than it's students. Look up their academic success rates per California board of Education, not their website. This school signs students up for programs that are at a pass/no pass if you fail a single class; you must then reapply to the whole program and pay for the units again. The units are non-transferable, and you have to meet certain "unorthodox" standards constantly. There is definitely a money market here-beware!

To be in the Registered Nursing major means constantly having to fend for yourself. They have high academic standards intended to drop students. 30 applicants will get in the program, but atleast 10 will be dropped before the end of the first year. Their statistics say 98% success rate-that is a lie. Their computers are extremely outdated; some as old as you are! Seek help immediately or face a large group of RN advisors out to boot you. Never displease the staff, "the nursing community is a small one, after all." The program costs nearly $60000, which is probably not what you will make a year with their A.S. degree. The school may not be meeting state NCLEX passing standards, so be wary of your program being dropped in the near future; Their PA program sure hit the road!

You are behind on your online program most-likely, and that is because your teacher and director forgot to press the order now button for the entire class months ago, so all of your work will be pushed back and crammed for finals. Good luck!
