    Independence University wasn't my first choice when I graduated high school, but after I graduated high school I worked for two years because I wasn't sure what to do with my life. I then saw a few commercials about IU and decided to check it out. I found great information on their website about the online degrees they offer and was interested immediately in their Web Design and Development degree. After a conversation with a representative I found out that they are very affordable and they also send you a tablet and laptop to help complete your work if you don't have a computer of some sort. After you graduate you get to keep them. This school is definitely a place for people who want to go to school and work at the same time. The school work is very manageable throughout the week. The staff is also very helpful, friendly and they want to see you succeed. It's a great a school.

    Academic Rigor

    The school is good. Even though the cost estimates for an associate's and bachelor's are absurd, especially for the duration in which they last. Other than that, the courses are easy to master, and the staff offers full support.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for anyone who needs to work around a specific schedule. Ample amount of resources are available.

    What to do for fun

    They occasionally have these little contests for winning gift cards and such.

    Apply was very easy. Getting started is very easy and talking to the admissions director, they were very understanding and they made me feel like they really cared about me and made sure that I was on the same page as they were with my application.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a Mac club which teaches you how to properly use a MacBook.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for parents who have little ones to tend to at home and the busy body who has lots of things going on in their lives.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The modules are only 4 weeks long and you get one of two modules at a time.

    Bang for the buck

    This college has so many live sessions and lectures to help students succeed. There are labs for each class that they offer. They have IT help 24/7, also an online chat room that is also 24/7 for people who are in different time zones. If life happens then teachers are usually willing to give extensions as long as you keep in touch!

    Food and Dining

    I get to cook and eat at home.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm is your own home if you are taking online classes like me.

    Academic Rigor

    There are difficulties of working by yourself online at home. Becoming self motivated, household duties, and due dates for assignments. Sometimes it can slip your mind because you're at home, but it gets easier after a couple of months.

    In three sentences

    Independence University is a really wonderful college and I would highly recommend looking into it as an online school. The the courses are fun, the staff is extremely helpful, and they help you find a job in your career field after graduation! This school works with you financially and helps out in any way that they possibly can to better help their student succeed.

    In three sentences

    I believe that IU is a great at least it seems to be due to the fact that they are trying there absolute hardest to help me start classes by January 11th as fast as they can. The faculty here are extremely nice and friendly i can also tell that they are really caring to incoming students as well as students already enrolled.

    Campus Safety

    The classes are as safe as your home is.

    Great for these types of students

    Able to work independently and thrive on a flexible schedule.

    Bang for the buck

    The classes are full time work, but you can obtain your bachelor's in 30-36 weeks. The staff is super friendly and are more than willing to help you out with whatever you need.

    What to do for fun

    Whatever you wish!

    Food and Dining

    Again, food and dining are up to you since when you go to an online school.

    Dorm Life

    The best, since it's up to you where your dorm is (online classes).

    Academic Rigor

    Mandatory check-ins 4+ times per week. Extra credit for extra check-ins. Missed check-ins or late/missing assignments will give you strikes. Three strikes within on course will equal getting booted out. The workload is very reasonable. A normal week for a class consists of three replies to the discussion question, one assessment and one assignment (essay).

    Tips for prospective students

    I am attending as an online student. Online classes requires you to be very disciplined, in that you don't have someone watching over you every day.

    In three sentences

    Huge support group! Every member of their staff gives you not only their email address, but their direct call line AND text number as well. If you need to get ahold of someone, you need not worry.
