"First: Administration responded to all my queries within twenty-four business hours. Second: School staff and administration enthusiastically supported my program progress. Lastly, and though nationally accredited, the course work is exceptional. My undergrad and masters were at regionally, brick-and-mortar institutions. Structured learning at CCU was on par with my experience at those institutions. Six years of continuous classwork and a dissertation (defense before a board required) have ended, but what I learned at CCU will stay with me. If you are disciplined and desire a real degree, take a look at CCU. My government employer recognized CCU. I am confident that once you begin your higher learning at CCU you will understand why this institution of learning has such great reviews and successful graduates."

"I have two Master's degree from major universities in our area. While both prepared me for my career in public education, I can say that neither prepared me for the rigor of academc writing required in the doctoral program at CCU. Challenging isn't a strong enought word....which in the sense of doctoral programs should be music to your ears. One should expect a doctoral program to be challenging and result in superior academic and personal growth.My instructors were clear from the beginning (with my first failed graduate paper), that the entire doctorate program was designed to ensure that I could write a successful disseration comparable to any other doctoral disseration and second to none. I appreciated their candid feedback and committment to my success. I am in to the 5th course of my doctoral program and feel as thought I have made significant improvement, not only in my writing of critical issues, but also being able to reflectively analyze, evaluate and communicate an argument.Afterall, such academic performance is what we are all seeking at this level. The doctoral program does not allow challenge exams or credit by examination. One must have a 3.0 to graduate, Each course is divided into 4 units. Each unit is a total of 4 written essays with 750-1000 words eah question. The final exam is a 100 question multiple choice exam to be proctored . By the time you have finished just one unit of one class..a student has written approxamately 20 pages demonstrating their knowledge of the material. Each paper must be accurately cited with fidelity or your grade reflects neglegence in this area. By the time doctoral student completes the coursework, he or she will have written 800-1000 pages of quality academic writing.I'm looking forward to completing my degree at CCU. I highly recommend CCU to anyone needing a selfpaced yet rigorous curruiculum."
