"During my time at King University, I decided to pursue a bachelor’s degree in communication at the Knoxville campus because of their adult leaner’s program. I attended class one night a week which allowed me to better balance my full-time job and school. During my time in school, many major events took place in my life such as getting married, having a baby, buying a house, and more. I definitely needed a university that allowed for my busy schedule. I also needed a place that was affordable. King’s adult learner program is a fraction of the costs of typical private university tuition. During my time at King University, I experienced great academics and professors who led me through the communication program. Overall, I had a great experience at King University and would definitely recommend their Knoxville campus to anyone who is seeking a school that offers a flexible schedule, affordable tuition, and high-quality academic programs."

"I decided to return to college for the third attempt since High School in 1986. I started looking at online universities on the computer one day and a co-worker informed me of King University where her husband graduated. She advised me that King University is a wonderful university for adults that are working all the time and it has classes online which makes it easier for the adults working schedule. I informed her I would call and get some information regarding the university and if it can work with my schedule online. After I called, I was pleased with the online admissions person as she informed me what I need to do to get my transcripts from the other three colleges in Texas to see what courses would be able to transfer. After King University received my transcripts and all the paperwork was submitted. Once she sent everything to the board to be reviewed so I can be accepted. Throughout the process she kept me informed on the status of my enrollment and when I got accepted to the university, she then set up my classes for the whole degree program till graduation. She advised me, that I would have one class every five weeks till I graduate with my Associate degree. The online admissions person also informed me that every semester my new classes would automatically be set up and all I would have to do is to start my new class. I believe she was a God-sent because I always wanted to get my college degree and she made it so easy to accomplish. At the time, I was working two jobs and didn’t have the time to figure everything out to start college, working two jobs and having two children to take care of not including cleaning the house. I finally completed my Associate’s degree in May 2021 and as I walked across that stage with my three children in the audience clapping and cheering for their mother’s hard work and accomplishment of finally getting her college degree was rewarding and one of the proudest days of my life. After I received my Associate’s degree, I decided that I was not ready to retire, and I wanted more in my life. I decided to return for a second time to King University to continue with my Bachelor’s degree. I again called King University online admissions to see what my options were for my bachelor’s degree. I also called a few other universities in the area such as the University of Tennessee and ETSU to check their online program. Both universities did not have what I was looking for regarding my bachelor’s degree. I decided to continue at King University and major in Business Administration. I realize it will be a little more expensive as I asked about tuition and grants but in the long run, it is best for me and my schedule. I was ready to accept my classes and pay my fees for the semester when at the last minute I received an email from someone about the Communication program. They provided me with the required classes for my degree to review. After reviewing the classes, I decided to switch from Business Administration to Communication because I believe I am a great communicator and I am a people person as well, so I believe this is perfect for me. I have really enjoyed my classes so far and they have taught me several things about communicating with others and especially how to be a better negotiator. My professors are wonderful. They have continued to teach me things on the computer that I have forgotten throughout the years. At my age, I am not looking to climb the corporate ladder or be a CEO in the corporate world, I just wanted to continue my lifetime goal of obtaining my bachelor’s degree."

"King University has been a great experience. It allowed me to work full time and still be able to get my homework done. I was naturally drawn to King as my husband graduated from the Business program a few years back. King has helped me learn what a memo is, helped me with my writing skills, and helped me gain more confidence within myself. All my teachers have been wonderful but the two most memorable are Dr. Sloan and Cora Young. Both have been great to work with as far as the student/teacher relationship goes. Even If I emailed them during the weekend, they were always so quick to answer. All my teachers provided feedback with compassion and understanding. I am now able to say I can speak in front of an audience, and video a speech without second-guessing myself. The first day of school feels like the last day is forever away but time really does go by so fast. I've used the writing lab twice, the first start of the COMM program and they were quick to respond and gave excellent tips for my papers. If you are thinking of King, don't hesitate to give them a call. My only complaint is, when you are in your last semester, it should be easier for students to have access to all their graded work so we aren't "hounding" the teachers."

"I asked myself a series of questions while I was searching for colleges: was the college affordable, was it going to work with my work schedule, and was it going to lead me to better opportunities. Mostly everyone wants a university experience, but not everyone can afford to have one. King University was the perfect match for me for many reasons. After I spoke with an advisor, I was directed to a degree that was going to provide me with better opportunities within my desired work field. While I pursued my degree, the teachers continuous strove to make personal connections with their students and help them use their new learned skills elsewhere. I wanted a credible education, but I was not able to afford a big University. King University at the Knoxville, TN location has one of the lowest tuitions in the state, which allows me to pay off my student loan in just a few years. The last factor that made King University the best fit for me was their fast-pace, block-scheduled learning. The students take one five-week course at a time for the next 15 months. I am super happy to be graduating early and to get a head start with my career."

"My experience attending King's University has been very enlightening and informative. The faculty members are very nice and helpful, when I am in need of assistance. As a child, growing up, I attended a private school with similar traits as King's University. I have learned from my childhood, I am most comfortable in a smaller classroom setting. Since attending King's University, I have increased my knowledge spiritually as well as academically in the Communications program. The information I received by the instructor's teachings have benefited me through my learned communication skills. I am truly blessed to be able to attend King's with people whom are supportive and encouraging. I have put to use valuable assets for real time experiences, and to help me along my journey in life. I recommend King's University to anyone that is looking for a good spiritual based academic education."

"My experience in the Communication program at King University as an adult learner has been truly amazing for me. I like that It’s an accredited University and has small classes with a close feeling of friendship. The Knoxville program location is helpful and close to busy businesses and shopping stores. All the staff I have encountered have always been nice, respectful, and very professional. At the beginning I was a little lost and then I got an advisor, Anthony Lanagan, and things have been smooth ever since. The teachers have always been very nice and courteous. I reach out and it doesn’t take long at all to get an answer back from them. And because the classes are small it’s easy to make friends and reach out to for help and ask them some questions too. I was at Pellissippi before this and the difference is night and day. The comparison to Pellissippi Community College and King University are so different. King University is much smaller and much more personable and I’m not sure why but size does matter in this case. The most important thing for me was flexible hours and to be able to come to campus so I could interact with my classmates, and be able to speak to my teachers in person. Even though we only meet once a week it feels like that one day is more than plenty because we get so much work done and come to class prepared with some work already done and chapters covered and read. The only complaint that I have is the price to attend is not correct it’s much more than fourteen grand."

"After completing the Bachelor of Science in Communication degree, my eyes are open to the possibilities of being able to examine the world critically. The program has taught me useful skills that I apply to my work and life with every new week. Choosing King University was the best fit for me because the class schedule allowed me to work a full-time job and focus my concentration on one class at a time. King’s block schedule system allowed me to attend one five-week course at a time that meets once a week. With classes meeting during the summer, I have been able to get on the fast-track to graduate within just 12 months. I attended the extended campus on Harden Valley Road. The class sizes consisted about thirty students or less, but I enjoyed having a smaller class because I was able to make connections with my classmates like I never have before. Every professor was exceptional at their job and took the time to encourage student to express their ideas during class. It was never a boring class experience because the teachers were passionate about what was being taught; the communication major is very misunderstood. It is hard to understand how the tuition rate is so affordable to attend this school with how great the professors are. It is comforting to know that I am not going to be in student debt for the remainder of my life, and I still got a credible education. King University’s transferring program made it easy to be accepted. The University accepts almost all transferable credits, so I did not have to worry about re-taking classes. Joining the Communication Program at King University was the best fit for me academically and financially, and I recommend this school to all my friends searching for colleges."

"When I started at King University, I struggled with a lot of mental health issues. I knew what I wanted to do i.e. learn more about Communication, but I physically and emotionally could not bring myself to do the work - and I was already 2 weeks into class. I continued to struggle and struggle until my grades paid the price. I eventually took time away from school to reconnect with my passions in life. In the fall of 2019, I began my studies again with the determination to absorb all the information I could. From the marketing and media communication to the ethical foreground that allows people to communicate effectively, I wanted to learn it all. With the help of the staff at King University, I was able to reapply, start right back where I started, and now I am graduating in 50 days. I will always cherish this experience in my life, because I am able to utilize every teaching in my everyday life. From work to home, I am going to productively use my Communication Degree. Thank you, King University, for believing in me."

"As an older adult student at 52, The Comm. program at Kings University has been a wonderful experience for me. The Professors are top-notch, Dr. Sloan stepped up with me by helping me get the APA style down by meeting one-on-one to show me where I was making my mistakes. Dr. Cassie Ray is tuff but she will always help even at 2 in the morning by answering an e-mail from a student, "yes She actually did." And Professor Joshua Cunningham is a quirky professor with a unique teaching style and if you have the opportunity to take his class you will grasp his teaching style and have a great time learning from him. I would recommend anyone to take the time and explore the communications program at King's University and meet with Dr. Sloan and find out more about the program."

I am currently in COMM4100, or about halfway through to earning my Bachelor’s in Communications, and so far I have loved everything from learning about ethical theories to exploring all the opportunities a Communications major can bestow.

"Within the next few months, I will be a proud graduate with a BS in Communication from King University. Today, I would like to share my experience as a student at King University and some essential facts about the Communication program offered here: 1. This program is well-paced, with 12 major COMM courses, which I assure are some of the most critical and knowledgeable courses in the communication field. Each course consists of five weeks, with four class hours per week. 2. This program touches interpersonal communication, ethics in communication, visual rhetoric, mass media communication, public relations, and public speaking. These are just a few of the exciting 12 courses taught during this program. 3. The instruction material is valuable, and the articulative skills of the instructors are unmatched. Not only do they both give knowledge about the subject matter, but also and perhaps more importantly, provide pathways on how to apply this knowledge. There is much healthy discussion involved within the classroom, and the best part is that the instructor gives everyone a respectful and equal chance to participate. After doing this course, we find ourselves equipped with the working skills required in any professional field. If we want to work in social media, advertising, journalism, public relations, professional speaking, this program gives us the knowledge and the tools. This program has given me so much confidence not only because the content taught is precise but also because the opportunities to apply the content are broad. This course opens a variety of opportunities ahead. Thus, I recommend the students looking for professional career development join this program and make the most of their time and money."

"When I began looking for a school to complete my degree, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I ultimate went to the internet to find my answer. I searched the web for affordable, online schools that provided a good, flexible schedule since I was a full-time worker. I came across King University. Not only was the school accredited, it was in my budget and gave me a great degree I could use for just about any career path: Communications! I was so excited for my journey to start. I was ready to start school and plan for a future with my Bachelor of Communications. I finally started my online bachelor’s degree program at King University in 2017.Unfortunately at the time, I was struggling in my personal life, which ultimately led to me falling behind in my coursework. I would love to say I had an easy time getting myself back to good standing in school, but it was hard. I truly don’t think I would have made it to my final semesters of college without the wonderful teachers and administrators along the way. They encouraged me, raised me up, and helped me succeed again. I know I wouldn’t have had the same experience at any other school, which is why I am adamant about sharing my story. Little did I know that I all I needed to motivate myself was the inspirational, compassionate prayers and wisdom of King University. Now, I am one semester away from my degree and I couldn’t be any happier."

"My time at King University has been difficult, but very manageable. I once heard a friend say that her friends do not like King for various reasons. With that input in mind, I took a chance with King University. As part of my first semester at King, I am currently enrolled in an online B.S. in Communications program. It is great for any student looking into a Communications-based career. It gives me the freedom to work a job five days a week and still manage my classes. I will admit, in one of my classes (the four-month long class), I have neglected somewhat, and I have paid the price. With that said, if you are ready to earn a degree, where you will excel, and have the flexibility to work at your own pace, then this program is for you. My professors have been very kind to move around assignment due dates because of textbook delays due to Covid-19. If you are someone that is okay with typing papers than this program is for you. I love this program because it gives me the sense of taking marketing classes without majoring in business."

"I first chose King because the fully online B.S. in Communications program was one of the few that appeared fully online and affordable. The instructors at King are incredibly professional and are always willing to help students out. I had a lot of major life events happen during my time at King, but I never had to miss a beat on the path to my degree because every instructor was more than patient and understanding.

"King University can offer more than just a degree. Since attending, King has presented me with many opportunities to learn new skills and refine older ones. When beginning the program, I thought that I was going to be spending the next year and a half relearning old material, but I was very mistaken. The first course I took, Public Relations, impressed me greatly. In the first week, the instructor had taught us how to create a professional Press Release; it was very exciting to learn a skill that was actually relevant to a career path that I've considered pursuing, and PR was just the first course! The instructors that I've had through-out my experience in the COMM program have been extremely helpful. If I emailed any instructor with a question, every single one of them would respond almost immediately. I could not have asked to attend a better school. I've greatly enjoyed my time at King and I firmly believe that taking the COMM course has vastly prepared me for my chosen career path."
