People of all academic standing would be very comfortable. All below average currently will be motivated,encouraged and groomed to get better while also keeping the exceptional students challenged and engaged

They'll start you off fairly slow so you know what you're doing and to ensure you have a good grasp on the material. It's rigorous, yes, but they don't give you more than you can handle. They space out the due dates of assignments to give you enough time to not only do the assignments, but to ask questions. Remember to ask for help if you need it. Chances are you are not the only one having trouble as you advance through the classes (and years). I originally wrote this review as a freshman, but I am now entering my final year. Some professors will set aside special times aside from office hours for supplemental help with their classes. Particularly difficult classes, such as biochemistry and analytical chemistry, have this feature. Even if you think you have a good grasp on these subjects, it can't hurt to attend.

The professors don't screw around, but they are always willing to help a student in need.

there isn't a ton of pressure to be a crazy-stressed/successful student here. the emphasis is placed more on the quality of learning rather than getting a 4.0 and needing to move on to grad. school.

I am in both the Communication Disorders and the Psychology programs at Minot State. I had most of my prerequisites done before I came to school, so I am not sure about the rigor in those classes. I know that the Communication Disorders program is incredibly competitive (it is the largest program on campus, and many of the students in the program are hoping to get into the graduate school at Minot, which has a limited number of slots) so the classes keep everyone on their toes to make sure we are all ready for graduate school and for the profession.
