Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I love that I can attend classes online from anywhere in the country. I have met classmates from all over the world - some were even overseas. I miss the face time that was gained while attending classes on the ground, but the online classroom works better for me at this point in my life.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The Master's program requires team work between classmates that prepares us for the career we are working towards. Some people complain about team assignments, but they are essential for individuals to learn to work with all types of personalities. We are put on teams with people from other countries since the program is online. This is a great experience.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014

There are many advantages for going into a graduate program such as the program I chose. The program takes you through real light experiences and allow you to learn other points of view of the subject. The graduate program takes you deeply into the subject manner and give you reasons to why things are the way they are. The only disadvantage of the program is that there is much information in the program that you don't get the opportunity to spend much time on the subject. The program is designed to get through the main important point in the program in a set amount of time. I feel that the graduate program is well designed and doesn't leave out anything that is important to the student.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

There are many pros of this program. It forces one to manager time effectively. There are weekly deadlines that one must meet to remain in good standing with the class. As someone that works full-time, while taking my classes, it forces me to stay committed and focused on my courses. In addition, the team activities require one to work with individuals as they might in a business setting. With the online class, the personality of individuals could be skewed. With the use of team coursework, this enables this facet to be worked on as well. Finally, the professionalism and availability of professors and IT department is readily available for anyone. It helps one to feel comfortable with questions or problems pertaining to coursework. The only con I can say is that sometimes the system does not work as smoothly as one would like. At times, it runs slow or is going through system checks, which limits a students ability to remain on tasks. This is to be expected with all materials being on-line. Over time, it is expected the problems will decrease.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program are that I do it online so the work load is fair enough, but I don't have social interaction expect when I have to work on teams for online assignment. It is really difficult to work on team online, my grade is affected by those team, as some of them procrastinate and there is confusion on the interpretation of the assignment. On the other side, I love that it is online because I receive lot of support and I don't have to drive anywhere.

Very feasible program to integrate in with full-time work. The amount of work in the graduate program can be overwhelming at times with all the reading, assignments, and recommended tasks. The coursework assignments force you to read and apply knowledge to be successful.
