Hello, I graduated with an Associates degree for Early childhood education in 2018. It was one of the most challenging and amazing experiences of my life! The enrollment process was a bit difficult. I would make sure you ask questions to the advisors. They may seem rushed but they mean well. My teachers were excellent and very helpful. The ECC instructors prepare you for your degree. I did many writing assignments and presentations. I had an amazing instructor who told me about the field not having enough bilingual educators who can help children with disabilities. That was a life-changing experience for me! I understand that online college may seem hard but you need to motivate yourself and set a goal. My colleagues were friendly and overall my experience was great. I want to go back to get my bachelors soon once this pandemic is over!

I love that my school gives me flexibility and the time to make my own schedule. There is no set time to check in or a teacher to make sure you have attended class, but is instead run by the idea that you need to turn in one assignment every 7 days to account for attendance. This allows me to make my own schedule and work at the pace thats best for me. This schedule allows me to learn at my own pace and work slowly on assignments over time instead of doing them all on one day. The one thing I would change about this school is the online courses. The main pain with this is that teachers since they don't conduct lectures, are forced to answer questions via email and its almost impossible to hear back from them within the same day. Overall great school and education system!
