South University - Online Reviews

I would recommend South University to most everyone, although my unfortunate withdrawl was a result of active hours of those working for the school and myself. Those willing to cram thru 5 weeks of classroom coarse work in the first week, thus only needing to submit future assignments befor the due date of that weeks coarse work and post comments on classmates postings for participation points should prove easy. I enrolled to learn not to simple complete the courses. So I completed each weeks assignments as if I was in an actual classroom and seldom browsed ahead to what the future weeks agenda would require. More issues presented themselves with my approach and therefore I had ultimately been withdrawn by the school for a miscommunication of the schools policy in handbook and the automatic program that handled attendance as for if I actually should have received a W for only posting one relevant posting in the discussion area.
Review South University - Online
I am a bs in healthcare administration and management major, with a minor in social work/human services. I love South University and have already recommended them to several people I know looking to continue their education. I am a transfer student so I am taking more advanced courses at this point. I was worried about not being able to keep up without the physical classroom setting, but so far I am extremely pleased. The only disadvantage is the cost but I think the convenience outweighs the negatives.
I will change nothing about South University it is a great college to attend
I will recommend my friends to go there. I like the academic the best it's been a interesting adventure to participate in the online program. I like the grants they offer to the students and loan options. I have a staff that will work with me if you need help. The college is very flexible with courses to students you choose to work at your own pace. I see that their campus is very clean and organized. I had the opportunity to get to know the professors online it was a unique experience and I learned a lot in classroom discussions. Everyone there seems to be helpful during discussions. It has been a wonderful experience at South University.
