    I love the programs and courses Union Institute and University offers. The huge plus for me is that I can complete my degree 100% online! As a parent and small business owner, the convenience of completing coursework from home is great! The advisors and counselors have been extremely helpful and easy to contact. The registration process is simple and user friendly. The classes are fast paced which will allow me to complete my degree faster than other Universities.

    The hybrid-system of learning adopted by the school provides an opportunity for students to meet face to face with each other and also, with faculty on a semester basis (beginning of the semester).
    The faculty are ever ready to assist students to succeed in their studies. The cohort system affords students the opportunity to work individually as well as with other people to achieve a common goal... This helps to ease the stress that students go through, knowing that you are not alone
    The diversity is excellent, both within the faculty and student body.
    The courses are carefully designed or structured to meet and address real-world situations.
    The course structure and studies are so flexible that it allows students to work at their own pace... Taking away a lot of the stress that students in the traditional colleges may face
