I love the class format of 4 weeks for non-lab classes and 8 weeks for lab science classes! It's pretty intense, but if you are trying to knock out your goals as quickly as you can, this is the way to go! Having most of my classes online really is nice too because I can log in at my own leisure for the most part, and do my assignments when I'm not working.

My experience with National University has been overall good. It is convenient with my full time work schedule and taking classes online has not been a challenge for me. I appreciate that they offer both, online and in-class experiences. The academic advisors have been a little disorganized but the one that I have now is great. However, I feel that it is way too expensive for the quality of education. If I had the time to go through a tradition university for a fraction of the price, I would!
Most of the professors at National are great and very understanding, they do not let you fall behind and instructions are very clear. Most communicate very well and are organized. I have come across a professor that assumes everything, does not communicate, does not use black board, missed class for 2 weeks and we had to get another professor to take over. That was my only negative impression as a new student with national. However, if you do your research and make some friends from class, your journey should be smooth.
