Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Academics Rating

The university offers on-line classes, highly qualified teaching staff, small classes with lots of one-on-one attention, cost is fair and the curriculum is challenging. I have been very pleased with all aspects of this university.

Former Student - Last Attended 2010

Academics Rating

Academically dishonest... had a class that only met 3 times, if you showed up all 3 you got an A, no work or learning. If you receive any scholarship at all (most people get tiny token amounts so they can hook you, then they load you up with loans) they force you to live on campus, yet, more than half your classes will still be online! They barely have any face to face classes or even a full faculty.
