I feel that taking courses at South University are directly preparing me for my future career in the Health field. The staff is friendly, helpful and always willing to speak with you. I can not comment on the return on investment as I am only in my second quarter of prerequisites while I am continuing to work full time. The class times are at reasonable times and with a flexible work schedule I am able to make this work. I feel that the professors that I have want their students to succeed and work with you on any questions or concerns you may have. The location isn't too bad despite being located in busy Short Pump. The parking is a little difficult at times, but totally manageable. Overall I feel this institution is doing a good job with its students.

This school is very expensive. However, thanks to my employer and the payment plan provided by the school, I am able to make affordable monthly payments while I work on my degree. I like the fact that the programs at this school are accelerated, so you will finish faster than you would at a traditional college or university. The staff is great. Everyone is always willing to help you or direct you to someone else who can. They also offer both day and night classes, as well as online classes. This it great for those who need at flexible school schedule. My experience at this school has been great so far and I would recommend it to anyone.
There is a lot of peer-to-peer interaction and the workload is even heavier. Compared to classes, you pretty much teach yourself when taking online courses. You the professor it there to answer your question and clarify anything that you don't understand. There are a lot of deadlines to meet to ensure that you are keeping up the course work. Grading is based on originality of posts, quizzes, tests, and how much interaction their is between you and your classes mates
