Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The campus is small and the class sizes are the same as in high school. It is easy to contact professors without any issues. There is easy access to online databases as well as able to borrow electronics. The school provides students with many support services.

This graduate program has really helped me advance my career and given me the skills that I need to obtain a valuable career in the biotechnology field or go on to a doctorate program.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel a pro to my program is that it is cost effective (not to expensive to attend). I think a con to my program is that students don't have much of a say on where their student teaching placement will be.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm in a pre requisites teaching credential certification program. Though this is considered a non degree program ,it’s a graduate program because students must have their bachelors completed in order to qualify for teaching credential program. I have my bachelors and going to this university on campus as a second school. It’s part of my graduate studies as I plan to get my teaching credentials in social sciences by end of fall 2015 semester. I'm currently enrolled in a full time Masters Graduate program at University of Phoenix Online. Relating this information back to the pros and con of this program at Ch. Islands. The reason being that I cannot qualify for financial compensation of any sort for this institution. Due to reasoning of me being a student for two universities. I have had to fork out up to almost 3000 dollars for my classes at this University and paid in full. The transportation I have chosen is taking 3 buses to get to this campus as I cannot afford a car to drive or commute the distance from where I live to the campus. However this school offers a great education system for upcoming students wanting to become teachers. The program is rigorous but offers stability with a good faculty. The pros, I'm getting a good education to achieve my state California license in the future for teaching. The con's the financial stability to pay my tuition and to get to the school is becoming harder to pay for. Considering this is considered a second academic institution I have chosen to attend that I have to pay out of pocket for any form of financial debts.
