What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
I was on top of my game most of the time when it came to academics, and it doesn't take back breaking effort to do well. Just do your work and check Rate My Professor religiously because it also depends on the professors and how they teach. Most professors at Sam actually want you to be successful and they are there for you to ask for help, don't be afraid to! (you are going to hear this a thousand times)
Rachael from Highland Village, TX
all of the classes are accredited and the professors are very helpful. there are tutoring centers in every department! it's awesome!
Felicia from Cedar Park, TX
Personally, my classes have been pretty manageable so far, but I've only taken some basic courses. I heard that the classes are okay if you study, and it really just depends on the professor.

The academics at Sam is not the hardest...but its not the easiest either. It really depends on what you are majoring in and studying. The professor s are very personable though and you can always go to their office hours for extra help or just to chat!
