It's all about you, the student. It’s about providing you with a flexible and affordable college education. It’s about putting you on a straighter line to the exact same quality degree from a top online and accredited college, in the field and ultimately the career of your choice.

I liked that I could progress at my own pace. I had a limited time to finish and I worked when I had the time. I thought the text book was excellent.

I wanted to say, I never utilized the Smart thinking tutors for this course, and that is why I gave a 3 in that aspect.

This by far was the best online course I've taken. The material in the book was so good to know, and learn, and the course quizes and exams really tested my knowledge. I feel like I have learned concepts for life.
