I am currently enrolled in the Masters program for Information Systems and will graduate this Spring. I have found my entire experience with Florida Institute of Technology and the University Alliance to be very positive. You are expected to put forth effort, but I believe that anyone in any Graduate degree program should expect to put forth effort. I am surprised by the reviewers who are upset by requirements of submitting their work into a plagiarism tool. If you did not plagairize you need not be concerned. I recommend FIT to anyone who is truly wanting an education and is willing to work for it!
I am currently enrolled in a masters programs at FIT and I couldn't be happier with my choice. The course load can be challenging, but the instructors, that I have had, have been quite helpful and accommodating.
Thankfully, I have not dealt with the issues that my fellow reviewers have experienced. I hope they seek and obtain a resolution to their problems. The admissions and enrollment counselors have gone above and beyond my expectations as well. They may want to start there.
Tammy probably get paid by University Alliance. The instructor I'm having here, is incompetent. He has a Ph.D. but on a different subject(discipline), that is not related with the class he's teaching (e.g. PhD in geography, teaching IT security). Instructor knows no better than the online students, based on very poor(lack) of communication. When students ask further questions about the subject, normally it's ignored, until another week passed by, and forgotten. Not much activity in this class. Out of 8 classes I took, only 2 instructors match the videos. If you don't like this education, you have the option to be kicked out, right in the middle of degree. The classes are not transferrable to other universities as no one would take it. I'm victimized.
In the Florida Tech Online / University Alliance scam demo, there's a video of a professor lecturing. But that's not what you get. The ones on the video called "original professors", but the ones you get are not the one you see on the video. And yes, they're not experienced (novice) type of professors. Feel cheated!!!
You have to use turnitin to stop plagerism period. Any online school will use a program like this if they are worth going to. Yes the class load is hard sometimes but I would say no more so than going to a campus. If you want easy go to a degree mill, if you want to learn from a good ranking school this is it. My major is CIS and I feel my professors are doing a great job and know what they are doing. I get email as well as message board feedback right away. If I have a question I can contact them for chat. After books and classes my charges are aprox 1300 per term. I believe its around 460 per credit hour. Be prepared to work and learn, that is if you want it bad enough!
In accounting classes we have to write an essay every week to post on the message board and it was graded. They give excessive homework in accounting every week. All their instructors are contracted out from other schools. If you have 25-40 hours a week to study for just one class, it is a good school, otherwise find another on-line school. I will say this good thing about this school:They are ranked one of the best university in the country according to US News and World Report.
