I am eternally thankful for my last-minute decision to attend King University's Knoxville campus and to staff who helped me get enrolled quickly.
Personal instruction is important to my learning style. Online classes can be difficult due to inability to ask questions in real-time. King’s Knoxville campus has flexibly scheduled evening classes one can attend after work. I was able to combine electives and complete two programs, psychology and communication, and it only took one extra semester.
Although certain financial aid, admission, and a few academic program questions required talking with the main campus in Bristol, TN, King's Knoxville satellite campus has helpful staff present long enough into the afternoon and accessible to night students. Overall, I’m very happy with my experience at King University, Knox campus and recommend them to any adult student pursuing a degree.
The communication program at king University in Knoxville Tennessee is one of the best if not the best communication programs to be ever found in continental America. King University founded in 1867 is an accredited university with over 150 years of experience in providing higher education to people from all walks of life and continents.
The communication program at King is also very family and adult friendly. As a busy real estate business man before enrolling in the communication program at king University, I felt like my dream of acquiring higher education was impossible due to my schedule and family demands but with King it has been possible with flexible hours and very helpful and experienced instructors.
If you are ever look for a quality education at an affordable and accredited university, look no further, King university is the place to be!
