Complete disaster. Nothing but a degreemill anymore, despite their accreditation. They just shove students through without caring if you actually learning anything. There is zero support for current students (you won't even have an advisor), no alumni association, and no real career department. Save your time and money and go somewhere else.

This is a great school for those who have never felt the appeal of a traditional college experience. The campus is small, as are the class sizes, which is great for getting to know people and not feeling ignored by the teacher as might be the case for classes in 200 person auditoriums. I started during COVID so all of my classes were through zoom, but I still felt the sense of community from the school and am looking forward to attending classes on campus!
