I am a senior and have forgotten or simply unaware of the newer procedures for registration, grants etc.etc. The councelors and staff were very informative and patient and made my transistion as less complicated as possible and I appreciated that.
If you are a prospective student, then please stay away from this college at all costs. Having no degree at all is better than having a degree at this institution. If you are an employer, then be very skeptical about hiring graduates from this shady institution regardless of the job you are offering. I have several instances of where I have had to call the police on students even though I was there for only a semester. Furthermore, I once had to call the police on an entire class since they were literally a riot since they could not comply with a simple request that I had made.
