Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
-
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The school offers a totally online MBA program which is perfect as I work full time. Small class sizes allow for greater interaction and the teachers seem genuinely glad to help.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of this college is that it is cheaper than other colleges near by. The online option makes it more accessible for me as I am working full time and a parent. The faculty and staff at the school have always been very helpful and friendly. Plus, the courses I am taking have taught me so much that actually apply to my certification area. As far as cons, I've not really got any complaints. I would definitely choose this college over others. My overall grade above is not that accurate because I couldn't rate the college in several areas due to me being an online student.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is much easier than I anticipated. It is a great deal of "busy" work but I have learned little. It repeats what I learned in my undergrad. However, the ability to stay home with my children outweighs the negatives of the program.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of an online graduate program are being able to attend class from home, being able to listen to lectures and access class materials and information at any time, and shorter class sessions. The cons on an online graduate program is the lack of relationships with professors and classmates.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The Phd in Clinical Psychology program has been very informative and has given me a greater understanding of the role of a psychologist. It is also one of the few programs which fulfills licensure requirements. The only drawback is that class instruction is not available in Lexington and I will have to drive to Florence for courses.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

All the individuals in the graduate program for teacher certification work as a cohesive whole toward one goal, my goal: to produce an effective, well trained teacher. From my initial contact with the admissions officers to my adviser, every person has been helpful and courteous, directing me to the appropriate resource. The online classes are designed with my schedule, family, and goals in mind.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

I enjoy the flexibility of the program. I believe it is an immediately applicable curriculum, and its structure is effective for preparation for the dissertation/research part of the EdD. Further, I enjoy the informal relationship with professors and their helpful nature. It is affordable, too.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros of the MAT program at UC is that you can complete all but your student teaching online. Which is perfect for working adults, such as myself. The professors have been excellent in assisting me whenever I have questions or concerns. The con would be that if you are having Internet trouble you may miss a class.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros - The online setup allows me flexbility as to when I do my course work. Professors realize that working adults are in this program, which helps tremendously. The cost of the program is affordable compared to other similar programs too. Cons - Access to support systems can be more difficult because of the long distance nature.
