Excelsior College Reviews

This college is an online school. This type of schooling is very convenient but it is also difficult to stay focused and determined without the classroom setting. I wish the college would add some inexpensive and interactive prep courses to help, assist with on-line students. This type of education is very expensive and at times I find myself having to wait on enrolling to the next class or test due to the costs.
I currently love my schooling experience through Excelsior College. The online classroom has been the best choice I have made in my college career. I am able to continue to working and attend class on my schedule and when I have the time to. It is nice that assignments still have deadlines because if they didn't I would never get my schooling accomplished, but the online environment allows me to be flexible and balance my home life and school life easily.
There is great diversity at Excelsior College. Because it is an online school, only what the students describe on their introductions is available information to the rest of the class. At times, it is difficult to know the diversity in the students or the challenges that they personally face in regards to economic background, political beliefs, ethnicity/race/ religion, and/or sexual orientation.
