    So far my experience at Independence University has been GREAT! I even got my friend to enroll. You can start any time, have flexible hours so you can work on your classwork when you can, and getting enrolled is SO EASY! They take all the headache out of getting enrolled and help you every step of the way. They even offer k-12 tutoring for any dependents in your home! Not to mention providing a tablet AND laptop with free IT on call should anything go arry. I would Recommend Independence University to literally anyone and everyone!

    I love how easy it is to get in touch with your admissions adviser, student adviser, or teachers. They walk you through the first week and help you with your financial aid decisions. My admissions adviser was Elaine and she was wonderful. I would advise anyone who applies to ask for her! They have live sessions you have to attend where they discuss the work for the week and the first class you take is a basic computer class so you can understand how to do anything you need to do. And the school has actually walk across the stage graduation 3 times a year so even if it's a online college you still get to walk across the stage! I recommend this school for anyone who can't or don't want to attend a brick and mortar college. You can work on your school work day and night and they have night live sessions for if you work during the day. And you have weekly discussions so you can share ideas and debate with your classmates.
    Independence University is a great college for anyone! I like that they allow me to take all my classes online because it is flexible with my work schedule. They work one on one with you to help find you the best financial advisers and administration advisers. They sign you up for courses relevant to your field of study and the professors will check up on you to make sure you are doing alright and that you are understanding the material. There have been a couple of hiccups along the way which is why I have rated it a four and not a five. I think communication could improve between faculty and students. They call and send emails, but if your like me, then you don't check your email everyday and do not answer random phone numbers. However, I check my texts every five minutes and whether I know the phone number or not I read the message to see who it might be. Thank you for your time.
