The University of West Alabama Reviews

27 reviews
I loved the Small class size, availability, and location. The professors are very helpful and knowledgeable. I attended my undergraduate and graduate years of college. There so many school related functions to attend. The campus has been upgraded, and it is near the interstate. The school itself is about 45 minutes from 5e University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, and it as about 30 minutes from Meridian, MS. The different degree programs offered are phenomenal! There is something for everyone. Most questions can be answered via email or telephone. The website www.uwa.edu is self explanatory as well.

The course work at the University of West Alabama online was very intense for me, but manageable. I enjoyed the courses. I really feel like I learned a lot from each course. The professors were genuinely understanding and helpful. They made themselves readily available if needed. Grades were returned in appropriate time spans. They also gave you comments on your graded assignments, which I really liked. Resources were made available to students to ensure their success in the classes. There were also several options for purchasing books as well. The entry process was very simple. It only took s fee steps to apply. I had a few problems with my financial aid in the beginning, but the university helped me to quickly rectify the situation and get back enrolled in the classes that I had previously registered for after being dropped. They worked with me day in and day out until my verification process was complete. I would reccomend this program to anyone trying to obtain an online degree!!!
