Ohio Christian University Reviews
They have professors all over the country that are working not just for OCU but many other colleges, to the point they get confused as to what systems OCU uses. There is little interaction on anything, I find the course work far more difficult than the last college I attended.
The STUDENT LOANS rules they have in place is where they truly plummet to the worst of the worst. Many of us attending college get student loans to not only pay for school, but also room & board, so that we can take on a full load and still pay for rent/utilities/food etc. This school receives YOUR MONEY, and then SITS ON IT for 2.5 months. They WILL NOT release YOUR MONEY until you get through 2 months worth of courses. Which completely defeats the purpose of the loans to begin with and makes it untenable for ANY student relying on these loans for room & board. A cruel, really poorly thought out system, which frankly I find despicable especially coming from a Christian university.
