There is also a business communication center that offers speaking and writing assistance, and a career center to help students prepare for and find career opportunities.
I have read many of the reviews and it seems like the people that are complaining are having issues with cancellations. I have completed almost my first semester & so far I can say that its not been bad. I can work on my own schedule. Complete classes as fast or slow as I want. They are nice enough to return assignments that need a little more work so you can get the best grade possible. Although the coursework is tough its thorough. I have learned quite a bit in these first 6 classes and I think for the money and the ease of enrolling, its a good accredited online school. I already have a job lined up and being a student of an accredited school helped. Cons: None so far.
