Class registration is relatively simple, but the payment methods are horribly complicated. The financial department is hard to work with at times, too. The workload all depends on your professors, so you never know what you're getting yourself into. I take 17 credit hours each semester without any problems, but others complain about the workload. The curriculum is very dry and basic, and in most of my classes, I feel like I'm memorizing information and facts to regurgitate on a test instead of actually learning.
While I think there are some positives to this school, there are certainly disadvantages. Firstly, there are no security cameras on campus, and the security department in general is lacking. Secondly, the administration tends to treat students more like numbers, and professors can be inconsiderate at times. Thirdly, the student center is mediocre at best, the parking is horrible, and student activities are extremely limited.

I took credits in high school that were through this college, and they transferred. But I believe that maybe one did not, if I remember correctly. Those credits taken in high school has saved me so much money and time because it put me ahead of where I needed to be. I am able to schedule my classes to where I am still able to work every night too, so that works out well.
