Charter Oak State College Reviews
As far as online schools for working adults wanting to finish their degree, COSC is the best. They have the most liberal transfer policy out there. They also only require on course to be taken there for an associate's and two for a bachelor's. Everything else can be transferred in from other sources such as Saylor Academy. What it is not good for is young people looking to enter into their first career. They have no career services and recruiters don't typically recruit there. Also, most students just seek out a general studies degree there. For me, I work for the Postal Service so it made sense for to go there. All I needed was extra credentials to help me move up. Also, it is good for those who were irresponsible when they were younger to go back to school and get a fresh start. They go further to help people finish their degrees than any other college.
They use Blackboard for every class. The cheapest online schools tend to use this format. The downside is their are no video lectures. It is also horrible for certain subjects like math. It is better to take math classes elsewhere such as a local college or statistics.com. Other than that, the courses are easy to navigate and the instructors are usually helpful. I've only had one instructor I didn't like.
This was a perfect school to attend making use of all earned credits. I was able to dual purpose credits and obtain an entirely different degree while completing undergrad at another university, and fielding an internship. The flexibility of COSC was the only way this was made possible. Very knowledgable instructors, worth the educational value.
