Overall Rating

I really enjoy the low ratio of students to faculty. The accessibility of faculty members makes the educational experience very personal, and in my opinion very high quality. My questions and concerns are always immediately and thoroughly addressed and I feel that the staff members make an effort to get to know each student and work with them.


Overall Rating

Lost my previous college transcripts after being told they had them. They'll have you full out a gaga, sign loan papers allowing them to take your money only to find out later they do not accept federal loans of any type. Will not guide you in anyway on, child care assistance, other scholarships, or any other type of assistance only their payment plan. I would suggest seeking out other colleges. Maybe one that is willing to financially guide their students better.
