Review Columbia Southern University
Starting college with Columbia Southern University was scary, The crew at Columbia Southern University have relentlessly helped me get to my senior year through all of my fears. Every time I call for help, they have been there, walked me through anything, and helped me succeed with every aspect of the way. Taking online courses have been very accessible. Columbia Southern University has a tech assistance, a FB page, and reply immediately when after hours. Best school ever! Never thought I would make it this far after being out of school for 25+ years, they made the transition possible and pleasant.
Columbia Southern University is completely online and has allowed me to take control of not only my educational studies, but my overall health. I was diagnosed last year with full blown pneumonia, and have had to put my career on hold while I recover from some long term effects. Having the ability to to obtain my degree without risking my health in a classroom setting has empowered my motivation!
Returning to school after a long lapse, Columbia Southern University (CSU) offered the online format that did not interfere with my daily schedule, as I completed assignments and tests at my own convenience by the due dates. My original advisor initially called me to confirm and review my educational goals. Other staff members were always available to assist me with any questions, or would take no longer than 24 hours to return emails. CSU's degree programs are aligned with the online requirements of even the top universities. This is a nationally accredited school, which follows U.S. DOE guidelines. I was able to complete my bachelor's degree within 2 years and am currently working towards my master's degree at CSU. The programs are rigorous and challenging, depending on a chosen major. Most professors at CSU genuinely care about their students and successes. While there is no brick-and-mortar school campus, the school has an administrative building in Orange Beach, AL.
