Charter Oak State College was by far the best thing that happened to me while I was acquiring my Bachelor's degree. I am a working adult in the automotive retail industry who needed a 4 year degree to move over to the corporate side of the industry. Before transferring to Charter Oak, I was enrolled at a community college and working 12 hours per day. At that rate it would have taken me about 8 years to complete a 4 year program and I couldn't bear to think about it. Then I discovered Charter Oak, transferred my existing credits and was able to finish my 4 year degree within 3 total years. My academic counselor was amazing and understood how important it was for me to finish school in a timely manner since my career advancement depended on it. The institution is accredited and adult friendly. I would recommend this school to anyone, and if you choose to continue into graduate school like I did, all your credits will transfer without a problem. Thank you Charter Oak!
Review Charter Oak State College
This school has been the perfect choice for me, someone who holds down 2 jobs and lives far from any 4 year college campus. They have allowed me to compile credits from other colleges, standard tests like the CLEP, portfolio experience, independent study, and online courses. They have been great about keeping contact with me and encouraging me to keep going. The advisors are always available and helpful, their response time is great. The faculty are very professional and knowledgeable. This school has been a great experience for me. I would definitely recommend them to someone who is in a similar situation as I am. They are also well-priced.
Charter Oak State College (COSC) was incredibly convenient for me. First, they took my 100+ transfer credits and tried to apply them as best as possible to meet the concentration that I chose. Second, any general education courses that I was missing, I knew that I could easily use American Council on Education (ACE) certified courses or exams to either learn the material, or prove that I already knew it. This second point is huge for me. A lot of institutions limit the amount of transfer credit, first of all, but they also do not take ACE credit very readily, as is my experience with the California State University System. The third reason I liked COSC, is because all of my instructors worked in the field that they taught, and on top of that, EVERY member of the COSC faculty that I talked to was incredibly professional, courteous, and willing to answer any questions. Last of all, throughout my Public Safety Administration studies, I learned incredibly valuable information that I can and have already applied to my job with great results - this education is applicable and effective. I highly recommend COSC to anyone looking to maximize what they already know, and who want a good education in their field(s) of study.
