Does anyone have any experience with this school? It looks like they are one of the few places that is 100% online and offers accelerated courses.

Some of the reviews I have read online are bad, but they seem to be mostly directed towards their nursing program.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you sir. I'll pass. I'm currently trying to find an accelerated online program for Finance or Accounting. Also looking at Southern New Hampshire Univeristy and Western Governors University.

Found Slickdeals because of the Touchpad. Ended up getting 2.
Will be staying here for life. WTF did I do before Slickdeals??

Can we ask what your end game is? Is this because you have a current job that requires a degree, any degree, to keep or advance your position? Or are you trying to change fields altogether?

I currently work for an insurance company as a sup in the call center for 10+ years.

They are paying most of my schooling, and my goal is to advance in my current company, but not in the call center. A degree is needed for most advancement opportunities.

PS i will have my associates in Business at the end of this semester.

Whatever the school, ask its real customers, that is the people who hire the graduates -- banks, full service brokers, discount brokers, insurance companies, mutual fund companies (both no-load and load), and a company like Edward Jones.

Rasmussen College seems to be like Grand Canyon University -- a legitimate college taken over by an online education company, and by doing that, the online college can get accreditation several years sooner.
