Detailed Ratings

As far as getting new students who know nothing about college immersed into the college world, this is a great school. There are quite a few online classes and their database of online classes grows more every semester. For the most part, the staff is friendly and very willing to help out. It's a great place to start out - not the best - but they have enough resources and knowledge to get you moving in the right direction no matter how busy you are.
