Very helpful and welcoming with my transfer, while there is a limited amount of online classes I look forward to being able to attend the classroom setting soon. I feel it is a very nice college for the community.

This school is amazing, helpful, cheap and recognized!
I have experienced nothing but good things with web classes. It gives me the opportunity to stay home and do assignments instead of driving to another town for a class. Peer-to-peer interaction is very important to. It is good to have a face-to-face class if possible because having a teacher right there if you have any questions is convenient.
