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.

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.
I love how you have someone there with you every step of the way! Your Student Services Adviser is with until you graduate! You can contact them with any issue and if they don't know the answer they will direct you to who does.

I also love how they have several resources students can use online. You having tutors available, several resources for papers and other projects, and the list goes on.

This is the first online course I have attended that did not make me feel like I was alone!
