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!
Review National University
Going to an online college gives me the flexibility to continue my education while going to work full time. If I had to go to a traditional college, I would spend too much time juggling multiple classes and work. This way I get to streamline my focus to a single class instead of being in a three ring circus. I love it!
They need to inform students applying for the online B.A. General Studies program that not all of the Concentrations listed are available online for this online program. One has to choose two Concentrations from the list for this program, there needs to be an asterisk next to the ones that are not available online for this online program, with an asterisk at the bottom saying: "these Concentrations are not available online for this online program." The two I chose that are not available online are: Natural Science and Environmental Studies. I therefore completed six classes at this university and transferred to another regionally accredited, non-profit, distance learning college. Lastly at least one of the Academic Advisors at this university is very neglectful. (This university might could score a "B" but for me it was a "C".)
