The teachers here are really experienced. The academics are informative but challenging. You definitely do not have time to be bored here at the school. Administration is very supportive, they do all they can to help you succeed, you just need to do your part. If you're lazy and you think you can skate by then this program is not for you. One more thing. The school expects you to dress business casual every day. I think it's a great start to a career! I would recommend this program to anyone I know that is interested in funeral service .

Since this is my first semester I love the topics so far except for microbiology and business as a funeral director. Even though I want to be a funeral director the curriculum is monotone and rather boring. I would never think that history of funeral science would interest me but it does and my professsor makes it fun. My registration process was a nightmare. I was actually suppose to start my classes during the fall but apparently I was never notified that the onlince classes were filled. I had to constantly keep harassing the scool administration to explain to me what happened. What made it worse was the fact that apparently they did notify me because they had the wrong email address on file. It did not make any sense to me because one of the faculty members read my email address to me correctly but they were still sending my information to the wrong email address. My advisor was the one that cleared the discrepancy when I was able to finally register for the summer semester.
Everything was pretty much easy from my expierence you have to do a little foot work yourself, but once you get all appropriate documentation in, everything else falls into place. You don't have to travel. Again, all is done by the stroke of a key and internet. The online course is they way to go if you have tough business hours, children or can't make it into the city. Credits were easily transferred and you take as many classes as you can afford or concentrate on.
