    Independence University offers Online courses, which has allowed me to continue my education as well as being a full time babysitter for my grandson. The way the university is set up with month long Mods, makes each class easier to stay on top of each assignment, which in turn makes staying in the top percentile with my grades. Currently I am working with a 4.0 GPA and it’s because the instructors have provided me (and my classmates) with exceptional support! Each instructor I’ve had since starting back in April, has been just as invested in my education as I am.

    This is an amazing online institution! Fully accredited, and the advisors work with you to ensure you are not overwhelmed. There are plenty of student resources available at no extra cost. The free tutoring as helped me maintain a 4.0 GPA! The tutoring is also available to my school aged children, including the writing workshop which helps with any type of essay work that needs to be done.
    They keep you up to date on everything at all times! It is the best way to make sure you are always in the know. The advisors are great, the classes are easy and the way the online class structure is setup is so simple it ridiculous. It’s even easier to keep track of your attendance because you take a quiz every day. The quiz answer is always right there. It couldn’t be easier! I highly recommend this college to anyone who wants to further your education. Oh and did I mention the best part? You get a free tablet and laptop! It’s included in your tuition. This is the best school I have ever attended. Bar none.
