Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Online need to have a lot of self discipline and be a self starter. Online classes can start at a variety of times. Multiple ways to communicate with staff and students. Get questions answered quickly. Accommodates busy life. Cons: Less face-to-face interaction with professors. Less networking and mentoring.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

This graduate program doesn't have any cons as of right now but the pros of this program are amazing. I am always able to get in contact with any of my teachers whether it be through the website or personally email them and get an answer as soon as possible. As for the coursework, it is very flexible and I am always given enough time to complete any assignments throughout the whole week. This program is one that I am very fond of and am glad that I chose to use the online version to complete my masters degree.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of the graduate program I am currently in is that it is flexible and I am able to work on coursework at anytime during the day whether its the morning or at night. Also, the teachers are always available and very helpful when I am in need of anything. As for the cons, I don't really see any cons for this program as everything is put in order for me to be able to ask questions without worrying to wait for any responses. I am very fond of how this graduate program is going as of right now.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently undertaking a graduate program for Public Administration after receiving a degree in Criminal Justice. I retired from the United States Navy and currently work for a city government. I feel the pros of this graduate program will allow me to continue a career within government agencies. Another pro concern the networking and global reach connection with other graduate students to learn and understand a vast array of public administration goals. One major con concerning my graduate course is that I can only do this course online. I rather complete this program in a traditional setting, as I have that physical interaction with people.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I love the online program availability. The amount of course work is a little overwhelming if you are working full time, but it can be done. The support is always available, even if your particular person is not there. The flexibility of the courses offered is a big bonus. Overall, the program is great and I recommend it to everyone I know that is pursuing a degree.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros are better job opportunities to increase income and provide better support to your family or loved one. You also learn valuable skill to better yourself as an individual while serving and a role model to other. The Cons are the amount of time needed to keep up with the classes and getting into financial issues due to student loan.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

I attend online classes and for me the pros are being able to complete assignments on my own time. I enjoy not having time restraints as one have with attending classes on campus. I have the ability to work full time, be there for my family and keep up with a full class load all from home. The cons would be not having that much interaction with classmates. Also, as an online student you don't get the opportunity to have direct one on one talks with your instructor.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I don't believe that there are any cons to the graduate program. It is about the individual and where their commitment lies. I admit it was difficult in the early part of my program and it is only human nature to blame others for your faults but ultimately it is the individual that must work for what they signed up for. The classes, professors, and the faculties are there to guide you to fulfill your goals. I have gained so much knowledge from the courses and my classmates.
