Overall Rating

Overall, Maria College has changed my outlook on college. I was getting discouraged by schools not taking my LPN credits and making me "do over" the classes that I have already taken. Maria College is a fantastic school for those that want a smaller sized classroom number, with dedicated, personalized teachers.
