My experience in this college has been very adventurous as each and every one of the professors has their own personalities that tend to make each class wild and fun. Never once did I have a problem with my teachers nor did I have an issue with the administrators that helped me sign up for my classes. Each semester in this school is an adventure that's worth taking and all of the time the activities that they provide the entire college are so much fun and beneficial to those of us who are transferring to a different college. It by any chance this is the college you wish to take them, by all means, change it and come here! This college is so fun and available for everyone, there isn't anything bad that would, should, and could, deter you from this school.

CTC is a great place to begin online learning in my opinion. It took me quite a while to finally get my degree completed; not because of them, but becuase I hadn't quite aquired the self-motivation to complete the task in a timely manner. I took a couple of courses then quit. No matter, CTC was there during my extended leave of absense from them and I jumped right back in like I never left. Never had any problems with any of the teachers, books, lectures or any of it. The only thing that took some time was actually getting my degree mailed. However, one phone call and e-mail later, my degree showed up (once they verified I completed all the courses) in a matter of days. Actually though, if you are looking towards higher learning, I would recommend beginning with your Bachelor's versus an Associates, which I'm working on now with another institution. It would save you headache of wondering whether your next level will accept all your transfer credits.
Taking roughly 50 hours online with CTC, I've come to know the ins and outs of its online programs and they have been very easy to use on a daily and frequent basis. The professors are mostly very low-stress and help you when you need it, the assignments are a good size so you aren't bogged down but not too small that you don't learn anything, and the classes themselves are well organized and run. I very much recommend anyone who's looking to take classes online to save money or fit their schedule to do so with CTC.
