Overall Rating:

Decent front office staff. The financial aid office is horrible and slow. The online class/on campus teachers literally just straight off the book and do not explain anything in depth. There is no communication between the students and teachers, they will just ignore you if you try to contact them.

My journey here is almost to an end and I am compelled to say that I will truly miss this school. The staff cares genuinely about their student body, I have always received such positive reinforcement from my professors. I felt like I belonged here, and never dreaded coming to class. Dr. Barnett is beyond the sweetest professor I've had. She is constantly urging students to stop by her office or call her with any questions regarding the course plan and any material in class you aren't so clear on. She's willing to help in any way, shape, or form to ensure every student gets the help they pay their hard earned money for. I love this place!!

Two hours I waited in the Math Lab to get tutoring for the only class I had trouble with, no one could be bothered to come over even after I had confirmation that someone would be with me shortly. Ended up leaving because I had to go to work and tried to do the class on my own and failed the course DNF my degree because of this, the student run parts of this program are terrible
