Charter College - Alaska Reviews

I really love Charter College! I like the fact that the class sizes are small enough that we get one on one attention from the instructors. The support we have at this college is amazing. If I have a question or need support, there is always someone there to help me out. I have learned so much in the short time I have been at Charter. I have met so many good people. I hope that someone reading this who isn't sure about attending Charter, makes the decision to give it a go. Charter has changed my life.
Review Charter College - Alaska
I really like the practical, real life courses offered. Most of the professors I have had are professional and have worked in their respective fields, so they do have true experience and know what they're talking about. All my classes have been online, but we have classroom forums and blogs that require input from all students, and where the professors provide feedback on any input. A variety of modes are used for teaching including textbook, videos, PowerPoint, and external observations or experiments. We receive timely feedback on all weekly assignments, homework, and quizzes. Grades are viewable throughout each module so we can see how we're doing as students at any given time.
This is the one area I did have issue with. I was disappointed because my prior credits could not be transferred because of how old they were. I graduated with a secretarial diploma from a junior college back in 1988, but none of those credits transferred because they were over 4 years old.

I secured a designation of "Certified Administrative Professional specializing in Organizational Management" (CAP-OM) after a 2-day testing for certification in 2010. Some of my trainings as well as the completion of that certification should've provided for some transfer credits, but I was told again that anything over 4 years old will not transfer over. I thought for at least my certification, some credit should've been issued as that happened only 5 years prior.
