I'm part of the partnership between College of the Canyons (COC) and Brandman University. Unfortunately, there aren't any on-campus classes for my program (Information Technology) at COC's University Center so most of my experience has been online. Despite that, my online experience with Brandman so far has been great! All the professors seem really passionate with what they teach especially through weekly announcements and participating in their own discussion boards. Some professors also leave behind comments on assignments to let you know how well you did, any good points you made, or any improvements you can make.

Online learning through Brandman is great!

Continuity is key with them, Blackboard is used across the school and is always available. I never have any technical issues with Brandman and they are always very forward when we will be experiencing any technical difficulties and are accommodating when issues arise.

Great communication and great resolve.
I’ve been wanting and preparing myself for a year to get into the Brandman Nursing program and I finally got accepted!! I couldn’t be more happier and the Brandman staff have been so helpful along the process even when I wasn’t accepted yet, they gave me sound advice. Now that I’m in, they have made the process go smoothly and helped me out with my financial aid which can be the scariest thing to tackle. The Director of the Nursing program is always easy to get a hold of and offers us sound advice. I couldn’t be prouder to say I got my BSN at Brandman University.
