Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

My program has experienced professors who are knowledgable in their field and classmates eager to learn. I wouldn't say that there was a con really because it is all pretty much on the up and up.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I love having the chance of one on one communication with my instructor with out the distraction of the other students and their plans for the weekend. I have a small class size, of 14-16 students, that allows all of us to have some time to talk and share with one another. I think the only down fall, like any other school, is the time management aspect. Being a single working mother and full time student is not always easy. Trying to keep up with not only my school work, but my child's as well, making sure I am getting good grades to show my child an example, is the most challenging part.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2014

The quality of the instruction is very uneven. We have some professors who are passionate about their teaching, some who are competent, and some who are clearly just collecting a paycheck. The recent "upgrade" to a new online classroom was ill-advised and very poorly executed. They also seem to have a very high turnover among their support personnel. I've been enrolled since September, and I have three academic and four financial counselors.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

I believe the pros are the ability to take courses online and at my convenience. The only cons I have is the material being outdated and the quality of some of the instructors.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I like my online grad program for the covenience and the accessibility to work and information. The class lengths are good for a MBA program and working adults. The only con I have about the program is the learning team concept in a MBA program. I just do not feel it is necessary.
