    Pros - Gives you opportunity to be able to complete your degree while working and being a parent.
    No Financial hardship once you graduate.
    Online and at your own pace
    Cons - Everything is digital, no text books, that is just something that I would prefer.
    Acceptance into the University is not Guarenteed
    This school has been great o far. I am expecting nothing but the best education from here, it is academically amazing and financially affordable.

    Scholarships are available for those who qualify, as with any other school and my adviser will be there every step of the way. I cannot wait to start and finish, I am so excited about this.
