3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Nice flexibility. Could be better though. Can't complain.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I took AP classes in high school and once the information from CollegeBoard transferred I had the credits for the classes I needed them in.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It has been difficult finding ways to pay for school, but every person I've communicated with regarding financial aid or simply advising in general has been extremely helpful.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: There's classes at all times of the day making it easy to have a flexible schedule.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Since I always scheduled my classes as soon as it became available, I was able to set up my schedule with ease. There are however a couple of classes that are only offered at two or three different times, which makes it a bit more difficult to schedule around.
