    College Senior: There are several courses you take such as Business English (all students) and Record Keeping (Office Assistants, Administrative Assistants and Medical Admin Assistants) for the Accounting students they have a different book (not sure what it's called but it's similar to Record Keeping but much more complex.) As for myself, I am going for Administrative Assistant. I am currently on my second (and last semester! Yes, only TWO SEMESTERS and you're done!) It's the start of the year so right now I am working on Microsoft Access, later in the semester I will start on Advanced Word and Excel, where we look deeper into the software than we did when we were going for Office Assistants. I will also be taking my last exam for the IC3 (Internet and Computer Core Certification) and towards the end of the semester I will take my exams for Microsoft Office Specialist. The instructors are very knowledgeable and they know what they are doing. They even stay after classes if you need any help. However, because the courses are fast-paced there are some students that fall behind and may go on Academic Probation and if you don't attempt to catch up on your work, you may get kicked out of the program. However, there is a library on-site across from the dorms that are open for about 6 hours a day, open 7 days a week as long as there is a student worker available. The class sizes vary do to the amount of students who apply and get accepted. (There is a $25 non-refundable fee) When I first started we were about 10 students, my second semester there are 12+ new students.
