Helpful Advisors and Compassionate Faculty

Returning to school can take some adjustment. That’s why we offer all of our students the guidance and support they need when choosing a program, developing a plan of study, and taking classes.

When I decided to go back to school to finish my degree, I thought it would be a long and difficult process. I met with the Academic Advisor .. and the process couldn’t have gone more smoothly. I am happy to say I was able to achieve my goal of finishing my degree quicker than I expected.
