Great private college, for people in the area. The University helps the community, and does well in community projects.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I looked into their postgraduate. school counseling online licensure program. Classes were $1,500 a pop and they wanted 12 hours for their program which the state of NM only calls for nine hours, which I personally only needed six of. I decided to look around in the ABQ area. I found another state university branch in the area that allowed me to enroll, w merely/proof of my grad degree & no other questions asked for about $900 & six class credits less than USW. Don't get me wrong, I was impressed with their staff, & they were very prompt in answering questions/calls, but at the end of the day it's a private schoo,l and ultimately didn't meet my needs.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
