Student Reviews
  • it's not a bad school as long as their professors follow policy and take care of you.. some don't follow the rules. This is more of an independent study with a paper each week, most of the feed back isn't bad, just don't take a math class. Their tutors are at odd times and the teacher doesn't review squat.
  • The class size is perfect, it is literally the student and the professor, which leaves plenty of opportunities to discuss anything that is not fully understood. Each class gives a challenge as new information is learned. Between the professor, the book, and the online library service, there is nothing pertaining to a class that cannot be found. Along with this, being able to talk one-on-one with the professor allows students to learn from their personal experience. There is not a single person I would not recommend this college to.
  • Northcentral University is an online campus. Professor/Student ratio is one-on-one for each course; very personalized course assistance. Excellent library services. There is an active student presence via The Commons. I have been very impressed by the support I've gotten from the non-academic side of the university as well. They really want you to succeed in your chosen program.
