Overall Rating

I am 50 years old and have returned back to school. I originally attended a four year university without completing all four years. You receive great academic support through the learning lab and free tutors to help you succeed in school. I feel as if they want to see me achieve my goal as much as I want to achieve it. My first semester back, I took an online accounting class two weeks after classes had begun. I had more trouble than I could count on ten fingers and ten toes. My instructor referred me to the learning center and believe it or not the tutorers were very friendly and helpful. I passed the class and I give credit to the tutorers for all of their help and understanding.
