Chemeketa has been the best school so far! All the advisors are super nice and helpful to start my school year off! I had so many questions and they have great programs and classes for students to join which will help them succeed and also save a lot of money. The diversity could be a little better but i wouldn't expect that considering the place its located at. Ive met some super nice people there so far! Its the best choice for someone trying to save money and not go into debt!
Very organized online college courses. Teachers are friendly and understandable. If you have any questions or need help, there's always someone to help. There's online help with all classes for tutoring and discussions used through Blackboard for each class to get help and help others with the class. When you sign up for classes, it's easy to do and they have the "Degree Works" page which informs you what classes you need to take for your degree. It also informs you what classes you have taken and passed, classes youbare currently enrolled and grades for those you have taken.
Overall it's been a great experience getting my degree through Chemeketa.
