In February I started at CCU online. I am 34 years old so it’s been awhile since school. My admission s counselor was wonderful. He kept in touch with me even when At first I didn’t call him back right away. If it wasn’t for him I probably would have changed my mind due to fear. I am so glad I stuck with it. I am getting a bachelors degree in Healthcare Administration. My credits from when I was in college for Nursing ten years ago, transferred over so I am already half way done with my degree. The professors are kind an understanding and if you don’t understand something just ask, they will help you! I also work full time plus over time a lot of weeks but I still manage to get all my work done for my classes because of the flexibility CCU has. I recommend going to this college especially the online classes!
Could use improvement in the organization department, otherwise solid Christian based education! I found plenty of surprises after being accepted into my program. It was difficult to navigate the technological side of things, such as the platform they use for online schooling called BlackBoard. Somewhat unprofessional communication between instructors and adult students. Delayed and incomplete information also proved to be an issue. Overall, acceptable, though I may have chosen a different school if I had known about the issues ahead of time.
