WHAT I LIKED

I have enjoyed the accessibility of the classes online as well as the professors teaching them. Overall, the price is fair and it meets the requirements set by the CSWE. Some teachers are super nice and everyone wants you to succeed and help people

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are a few teachers that are difficult to work with and learn from. They can be unresponsive or snappy. The university itself is difficult to get straight answers on some things. The Veterans office was difficult

Be prepared to put forth your best to accomplish success.
