Hello to others seeking more informationOct 06 2011Other
Hello to others seeking more information... I urge you to continue reading? YOU GET THE GOOD AND THE BAD OF ONLINE SCHOOLS. Getting into this University and others it's all depends on your GPA from previous schools and if your degree or credits are accepted. To regards to others please review all accreditations i.e. if it is national, regionally to other schools if you choose to continue. As reading reviews from previous students (this is something that I wish I would have done prior to attending!) I would recommend researching the top 3 ONLINE SCHOOLS and 3 GROUND CAMPUS SCHOOLS and compare; lets' be serious it?s your money and your time. It will be frustrating and long work but plan accordingly; trust it'll pay off in the long run...

ONLINE SCHOOL PROBLEMS: the things they don't tell you... technical support is available but cannot work miracles on your computer (so when it happens and of course it will computer problems) this will count against your grade as late work. INTERNET CONNECTIONS...never say never times are hard for everyone and please note be very considerable; of course you can go to the library although trying to maximize your time will be extremely limited IT IS SLOW and they are not open 24 HOURS A DAY. HOMEWORK it is way more than a ground campus YOU ARE LITERALY TEACHING YOURSELF. You are given a Discussion Question; the instructor is available only on certain times (you would think for an online class there would be someone there 24 hours due to a variety of time zones). HOW CHALLENGING it is not which is very, very, very sad. You would consider the approach of an online class being flexible, friendly, and available to work around your schedule NOT NOT NOT true. Let?s consider the facts... we all are trying to make life and balance the everyday struggles easier; you are going to be faced with all distractions and more going to an online class. Of course it seems very persuasive to give anyone a layout of what sells to your education... but please do not just accept the first answer your academic counselor gives you because truthfully that?s less work they have to do. I say ask those questions and even consider asking the ones when what happens if you eventually do not want to attend or choose to further your education at that University. PLEASE do not settle for that ?verbally?; LETS SEE IT IN WRITING? We all know that polices continue to update so do be extremely proactive and yes that annoying person because once your signature is sealed regardless of the pros and cons YOU are then one to have be STUCK with the LOAN.

you get more interaction with you instructors, faculty, and one on one attention if necessary; study groups which are meet in person (not on a blank computer).. your better to retain and further your degree with success. The probability of you likely achieving, succeeding, making your education/degree plan is a greater chance... The experience with hands on in a class environment (that is priceless) would you settle for anything less. You would be better going into a classroom because you will learn. Rather than putting a question online and that?s a class.

Went to GCUOct 02 2011Education
went to GCU.EDU and filled out the get more information and my enrollment counslor called the next day. If finicial aid is a big concern for you let the school know up front for any school you apply for, Make sure your aid is taking care of before you start. It makes for a better experience. Mine was taking care of beforehand and Ive had a GREAT experience. DONT READ ONLINE REVIEWS go to BBB and look up the schools your interested in. if you know somebody who has gone to the school ask them about there experience people you know dont lie you dont know people online, they could be mad at the university for something that was there own fault.

It was very simple to get into this school,Sep 14 2011Accounting
It was very simple to get into this school, sometimes I think too easy. I previously earned my Associates before applying, and also had taken some classes at a state university before making the transfer.
