Colorado Technical College was perfect for me because their flexibility with on line classes along with the very helpful staff and fellow classmates, there is really no way I could fail. The staff is amazing and with me being a older student at age 40,I was worried that I waited to long to start pursuing my passion and it would be likely that navigating school on line would be very difficult. I was very wrong The transition was easy and the staff was very knowledgeable at showing me ways to navigate my dashboard. This has proven to be the best choice I could've made thus far. I have no doubt that with all the support here at CTU ,at home and also such amazing flexibility with the classes that I can continue moving forward and advance in my career. My dreams will soon become, My Reality! Thank You CTU stuff and peers both for believing I can succeed and Thank You for standing by my side to help guide me through this Amazing Journey, Everyone here at CTU really wants to see me succeed.

I love the Intellipath system that they use. You read for every module and the test on that module. If you don't do well you can retake it until you are satisfied with your grade. The professors offer live video lectures but you can also watch them later when you're able. It's a great school for people who already have a busy schedule because you make your schedule. You can work full time, be a mom, and work on school at your convenience!
My learning experience is based on online although, I start next week taking tests and start classes in November. Im thrilled to be back in school and look forward to some challenges that come my way because I know that my group of helpful advisors and professors will assist me along the way. They even have tutors just in case!
