When attending Coppin, I only took two online courses. My experience had a bit of ups and downs. The first class I took, something was wrong with the online course, so the entire class passed. Then, the next semester I took another online class. I didn't do so well, the class started on the second half of the semester. I wasn't the best student, and forgot about the class because it didn't start with my other classes. It wasn't in my regular routine. With that being said, I would recommend taking courses that start when the regular semester start.

My online experience at Coppin State has been troublesome to say the least. Due to technical difficulties with programs as well as connectivity issues during my academic year, ive had mutiple discrepancies. Simply due to the internet going out and there were no accomidations made for students. I would reccomend face to face classes, the overall enhacement of learning and communication was not present.
I am planning on applying at Coppin state university. I fell in love with the college during orientation. The campus is jaw-dropping, the academics are even better. I am planning on majoring in sports management, and very few colleges offer that as a major. Coppin State University does though, I can not wait to start my 4-year journey and obtain my degree!
