Overall this school was very flexible and very compliant with what I needed at the time. They offer amazing financial aid, a currently evolving campus, and great teachers. I love that they offer online and hybrid (half online, half in class) classes. The teachers are really passionate about their work and are very willing to help their students thrive. They are willing to compromise as long you as you discuss your situation.

What I like most about the school is the available resources they have to students. From the financial aid office to the child care center. They have resources designed for students to succeed. If you remain focus and stay determined then you wouldn't have any problems doing well in school.
