What Students Are Saying

3.33 Average Rating
The AGS program is great for working students because we meet class one night per week. The classes are five to seven weeks in length. The professors are all qualified in the subject they are teaching. The classes incorporate your Christian values and ethics into the class strategies and lessons. Your books and materials are provided for you. There are hybrid classes which combine online and meeting classes and there are online classes to meet your needs.

I have visited many campuses and Southern Wesleyan is the only campus I enjoy being on. The staff is very helpful and fast to respond to any questions you have. Its not a very large school, In fact it is smaller than my high school.
