My experience with an online class was not as bad as I initially thought it would be. It is something different not haveing a teacher to help you directly but it's not impossible to get help either. The teachers always responded to the emails promptly or the number was available for us to call if we had any other questions. The work for the week would be put up on the site and I was given an ample amount of time to finish the assignments. It was also convenient as far as time and gas goes.The biggest issue was taking the responsibility of getting online and completing the assignments without your teacher reminding you that you have work to turn in. An online class is not as hard as it seems but it does take the initiative of the student to take the course serioulsy and complete it as if one was actually stepping into a classroom!

The program is very competitive and with one failed class you are dismissed from the class. The workload is heavy, at times ridiculously heavy. Too much time spent on busy work and not enough time spent on constructive items to excel/study. The facilities should be improved, it would be convenient if all of the classes were held at one location instead of two different campuses. Sometimes this contributes to multiple trips and excessive/unnecessary driving.

At my school we have tutoring labs for different subjects that available at different times. Most of the professors are very helpful when it comes to your education. There are various curriculums for various majors, all i feel are very manageable. The class registration environment is simple though you have to stay on top of it or it will slip right pass you and you will have pay late fees. A famous program at SUSLA is the nursing program. A lot of students are enrolled in the nursing program. The dental hygiene program however, is very competitive.
