What Students Are Saying

2.89 Average Rating
Don't be afraid to ask questions and be yourself. This school is very encouraging, I have not met anyone that has shot someone down for a 'stupid question' so don't be afraid to explore and have questions and be open, you will be accepted and you will go a long way, further than if you just try getting around by guessing.
ME
The faculty/staff are very eager to help and want all returning adults to thrive/succeed.
Charles from Plainfield, IL
Get your application in early, and check their websites for scholarships. I qualified for only about 6 out of 43. It offers a lot for specific majors and minorities. Join a club! I didn't join because with my schedule I might have 3 online courses and be there one day a week, and that one hour twice daily gets to be a lot on the gas tank.
Jessica from Oak Lawn, IL
