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.

Degree: Nursing

This program is excellent, however it is very intense and requires a great deal of work. I believe this schools graduate program is as competitive as any other traditional college.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2041

The Pros- Online classes allow me the freedom to go online when I want to and not be chained to the classroom. I am able to get a 360-degree view of what I want to do for my classes. If there is a problem, the facilitators are there to help (via email). The cons- There is still the idea that online schools and degrees are not up to par with brick and mortar institutions. However, more and more schools are turning to online classes, because of the return non-traditional students to school and their schedules that prevent them from attending traditional classes.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

My program will provide me with the skills to achieve my long range goal of giving back to the community while making the environment a safe place. This process will be slow based on my need for additional funds to complete my program

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2012

The best thing about obtaining a graduate degree online, is the convenience of getting the degree. As a full time employed student, I was able to meet my obligation to class, and the curriculum when I had the time to, as opposed to when someone told me to. The con would be tangible experience, I received many real world applications of the policies and procedures throughout the program, but I wanted intern capabilities with outside agencies so that I could be employable in the field.
