So a bit of backstory, I more or less joined this university right after high school and I come from a household that makes under $20,000 a year. I saw this school as a stepping stone to my bachelor's degree as I'd only get my AAS in graphic design here... Read More to make the other cheaper. I'm one of only two members of my family that I know of that have gone to college at least once. And finally, one of my siblings at the time was in the military and required my help as I was the only one available to help them move (3rd paragraph's predicament). So rating my overall experience with the school I'd say they are a nice 4/5 stars if not 5/5 in terms of the helpfulness of the staff. During the first few months if you have a computer science degree they will send you a tablet and after a laptop (mine was a mac). While not perfect their classes and more or less got the job done and were conducted using the zoom app for the meetings each week and campus app for turning in work, email between students and teachers, etc. They did record the sessions each week for students to watch back later on youtube which was very helpful if you miss the meeting. The only thing is especially for those of you who are considering the online version, is that you have to be active here and not play around. They have community tabs on the campus app that allow the students to talk amongst themselves and network as well as a built-in way to respond to the teachers to ask for help. I'd advise you not to be lazy and make time to go to the meetings each week as the teacher will go over last and that week's assignment and answer questions as well. Now you may be asking why did I give it a 3/5 then instead of the 5 right? Well in my case its that I was put into a predicament by my family, that lead to me not having access to the internet for 2 months (reminder I went to the online college ) and there was no policy or anything I could do to stop them from dragging my GPA through the dirt. While I do understand that it's not the school's fault, it does leave a bitter taste in my mouth not to mention that I'm now paying out of pocket to pay back the school tuition and will have to pay back the government as well for somewhere around over $30k total. Otherwise, besides this the career adviser was afterword was very active and adamant about helping me though I couldn't get much work under my degree where I'm at so it currently isn't doing anything. I would recommend this to those of you who need something akin to technical college and are ready and willing to put in the work. Otherwise, if you're going to play around save your money.
DON'T LISTEN , these people who are saying bad stuff . I been in this school sense 019 , done in april next year this school been good to me. Student advisor calls every other week and. We talk about courses and if I need help in this class, the teacher... Read More do actually care about students. These people are complaining about this , school probably drop outs or . Don't ask for help , because they think the teacher won't help them. If you put in the hard work , then you will be successful in this school. Ps. IF THE school didn't care they wouldn't send laptop to computer science students nor graphic art classes.
