Instructors and TA's were always available to help or answer questions. My online classmates were intelligent and reliable. Attending and graduating from BU was the best decision I have ever made.

I continued to speak to the representative and explore options. Turns out, everything went well. When I attended, the courses were 7-weeks, you took 2 courses per semester,... Read More
