Vernon College Reviews
I would definitely recommend going to this school in person, especially if you are wanting to get in some core classes before going into a big university. However, if you're looking for a good school to attend online, this is not the school to come to. Since Vernon is fairly small, the courses are easier to pass, considering that you could attain help more easily. It's very easy to ask the professors questions either face to face. However, there are a few professors who seem magnificent in person that are lacking that same charm online. I had to take one course fully online due to COVID-19 and the class was very challenging for me. I would email the professor with simple questions I had such as "Where should I turn in this assignment," but they seemed to not understand what exactly I was asking. The email I would get in response would say "Just turn it in," so you could see how it can be frustrating not being able to be face-to-face.
Even though the material in the classes I took were fairly simple, I had a hard time retaining information because it was harder for me to get the help I needed. For example, in one of my classes, I couldn't find the materials that I needed to complete an assignment, so I emailed the professor. In the email they sent as a response, all they said was "Watch the video." After watching the whole video, there was still no mention as to how I could find the materials I need. The only piece of advice I got from it was "If you have any questions, email me." It seemed like a giant loophole. Luckily, I figured out how to find the materials on my own, but there are obvious flaws in some of the fully online courses. However, not all of the online courses are the same as the one I just described. Some of the other classes I took had very simple ways to find the assignments and where to turn them in. All of the courses need to be reviewed to make sure they're all simple and easy to use.
I took online classes through Vernon college so I did not get to meet my professors in person, but every professor that I had for any course went above and beyond to help me when I did not understand something. Vernon college is a great school to attend!
