Depending on your major, OCU can offer either a satisfactory or challenging path to complete your degree. I entered OCU to earn a degree in English. Unfortunately, the degree is so new that the elective selection is poor while senior standard classes need further development and better organization. For example, in the last three weeks of my Senior Capatone class the instructor disappeared and the weekly handouts were incomplete. With that said, it’s imperative that potential students ensure that their majors have been established at OCU before enrolling. On the bright side, in classes where the instructors and materials are prepared the classes run smoothly.

I have had a wonderful powerful and spiritual learning experience! I've learned so much already about Christianity and the bible. I have learned excellent life skills such as financial freedom, Christian time management and so much more that I was never taught in my 22 years of living. The only negative aspect of OCU is the financial aid. The couple semesters I've been here it has been a hassle getting my financial aid situated. That is the only very thing I would love to change or improve in their system.
It was a dream of mine to attend OCU. Now that I am a student, they have not let me down. The staff and professors have been incredibly friendly and extremely helpful. I am maintaining a 4.0 GPA and I know it has a lot to do with the quality of education I am receiving.

I am very grateful for the opportunity to pursue my dreams, I know that a top-notch education is imperative and I believe I am receiving one. I have had a few annoyances including some slow responses from one or two of my professors and a few other minor communication issues that I've experienced while attending OCU.
