So far the experience has been excellent! The application process was very straight forward and the university has been very kind and supportive throughout the entire process. The online experience is truly one of the best and creates a solid learning foundation, by also presenting flexibility to the course schedules. The online experience extends to the desktop, in addition to mobile applications that you can use to further your experience offline. The accommodations are excellent as the staff will provide alumni resources that assist in the process of applying or inquiring about different classes. The bookstore is easy to use and offered plenty of discounts on books and apparel. Taking classes is easy. You can also partner with classmates in addition to working solo if that is your style. The video is excellent and the ability to utilize their entire research faculty is amazing. This is truly one of the best schools either offline/online that you can currently take.
Referring to my previous comments in regards to Penn State World Campus, this university has made the transition from being fully in person to being fully online practically effortless. They took care of all my transfer credits for me and even began to build a schedule specifically for me based off of my transferred credits. The organization is excellent, I never feel stressed or overwhelmed with school work. The professors are accurate with their responses times and I couldn't be more grateful to have gotten professors who go the extra mile to make sure I'm caught up with assignments. I regret not transferring to the World Campus sooner!
I started at the Penn State University Campus but eventually transferred to the PSU World Campus. PSU World Campus is fully online and I had a great experience with it there. I was there for over 2 year to finish my degree and I did not have any technical issues the whole time I was there. They had recorded videos, lectures, and teaching modules that were easily accessible. All of your grades, schedule, teachers, and more were on one page which made is very user-friendly. Online learning will be more and more important in the future, especially in the time of the novel Coronavirus. Kids and college students will have to stay home and learn more from home. I also became so interested in online learning that I kept taking classes through Udemy and actually landed a part-time job working in a Teacher's Assistant role for one of the highest-acclaimed teachers there. I can easily say that online learning is the next big thing!
