"When considering the accelerated online communications program at King University, there are many advantages and disadvantages for the adult learner seeking to achieve a Bachelor’s degree. Advantageous components include the convenience of completing the course work as your schedule allows, the flexibility of earning your bachelor’s degree from an accredited University in accelerated fashion, and being part of a faith-based institution which welcomes spiritual dialogue on behalf of both students and instructors. That being said, I found several disadvantages to the program that did not meet my expectations. Unfortunately for the working adult learner, the fast paced format and course load make it almost impossible to retain a majority of the information being taught. Perhaps a new college student who is not fully engaged in their career may have a different experience, since they could fully dedicate their entire attention to their program of study. I am certain that if I were a full-time student without work responsibilities and commitments, this program would have been more beneficial to me in the retention of communication content. Despite that I was unable to retain a majority of the information being taught, my ability to keep up with the busywork in each module allowed me to remain on the Dean’s list each semester. Like many of us who are working full time while attending class, many adjunct professors likewise worked secondary full-time jobs, which I feel limited their interaction and communication with the students. Feedback and grading was not always timely, which included questions pertaining to specific course assignments and content. In some instances, I received feedback on assignments too late into the course to incorporate the recommendations into my work for future assignments. That aside, all the professors were extraordinarily professional, knowledgeable, and helpful in assisting students in reaching their goals. Overall, I was able to successfully able to complete the Communication Program at King University and would recommend the program to others, especially those not engaged in full-time work commitments."

"I am currently enrolled in the online Bachelor of Science Interdisciplinary Studies program at King University in Bristol, TN. My two disciplines are Psychology and Communication. I decided to enroll online at King University because of the affordable tuition, knowledgeable staff, and flexible learning opportunity. For example, I am an adult learner and work a full time job. I am able to take one five week course online at a time until I complete my degree. Whenever I have issues with assignments, the professors in the Communication program are extremely helpful. For instance, if I email my professors about an issue with an assignment, the professors email me back with more information and explanation to help me complete the assignment. King University has great financial aid packages to help make tuition affordable. For example, I am able to receive financial aid assistance to help pay for my tuition. So, if you are searching for an university to enroll in an online Communication program, King University is the right place for you.  "

"Choosing a college is an intimidating decision. Trust me, I know the feeling. There are a thousand questions swarming around in your head and you need an honest resource for answers. That is why you are here today on this website, and I will give you honest and helpful feedback about King University’s online Communication program. I have been in the program for two semesters now and have two semesters left. I am so happy with my decision to attend King University, and especially happy about my decision to enter the Communication program. One of the first things that stood out to me about King University was the exceptional level of staff assistance and friendliness. I cannot say enough about the genuine kindness of the admissions office and their staff. A student worker introduced me to the Communication program during my first visit to campus. I had previously studied Psychology but I wanted to study something different, and after leaving the office that day I knew I wanted to be a Communication major. The admissions staff was quick to answer all my questions and help me get prepared. They were also of great assistance during the financial aid process. I had defaulted on previous federal student loans and had to seek a third party to consolidate, which required a lot of paperwork. The staff at King University was prompt and efficient in helping me gather paperwork. The financial aid was average, but easy to understand. The staff helps you understand your package and makes accepting your awards simple. I emailed someone two different times to change the amount of awards I wanted and she was quick to respond and change my package so I could edit it. I was in shock of how efficient they were. I have been to four different colleges across the United States (due to moving), and none can compare to the staff at King University. The online Communication program is adult oriented and fast paced. There is a new class every five weeks, which allows you to finish quicker. The professors know that you have a life outside of the classroom, so they make the workload realistic. Do not mistake the word realistic for “easy” because you cannot slack on the assignments or you will fail, it’s really that simple. The professor makes it easy for you to balance the load by providing a list of what is due and when. Typically half of the assignments are due on Wednesdays and the other half is due on Sunday. This schedule is great for me because it allows me to put homework off until the weekend if need be. However, you can also work ahead and have your weekend free. So, would I recommend King University’s online Communication program? Absolutely, I have finally found the place that is right for me. I wish you luck in your search and hope that you will do the same."

"I am a junior at King University studying Communication through their online program. Being an adult learner and the mother of two young boys, I benefit from the flexibility the online classes offer. I like that the online program does one class at a time for a period of five weeks before moving to the next class. Having one class at a time allows you to focus on one subject and only worry about homework and deadlines for that subject. The Communication program is a great program to enroll in. I am in my second semester in the Communication program and have learned so much more than I thought I would this early on. The faculty and Professors in the Communication program at King are amazing to work with. They are there any time you need help or have questions. The Professors are clear about each assignment and really care about the education of their students. I would recommend King University’s Communication program to anyone. Whether doing traditional learning or online learning you are sure to get an excellent education through King."

"King University has given me the opportunity to earn my bachelor’s degree in communication. I work a full time job and needed the flexibility of accredited online courses to pursue my communication degree. I was 41 when I started my bachelor’s degree in communications. . You wonder why I went back to college at a late age. I needed something that was missing from my life. I was speaking with a colleague at work and she was talking about graduating with her bachelor’s degree in May of 2014. I was intrigued and asked her what college she had chosen and why. She spoke of King University and what wonderful programs they have. I started the research on many different online communications programs. First, I enrolled at Tennessee Tech. I wasn’t happy with the program itself so I transferred to King University. King University has been exceptional from the start. My advisors, teachers, and administrative staff have been more than helpful. The most helpful thing I have learned, if you email teachers with questions, they get back with you. They make suggestions and guide you through any problems you may have. The tuition is a little higher than some of the other online programs; however it is well worth it. My experience though out the process has been great. The classes are challenging and I have learned so much in the last two years working towards my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything else in the world. I graduate December 12th."

"If you're looking for one of the best experiences in earning a Bachelor's Degree in Communication, King University has it all. The faculty is top notch, with the department head having many years of experience in the field of communication and a bounty of knowledge gleaned from textbook learning and real world experience. Speakers who have graduated from King University and maintained professional employment for years after their schooling ended have made it abundantly clear that this program is both respected and extremely useful in the real world. Furthermore, being in my second semester myself, I can see without their input that the knowledge I am being presented with is clearly thought out, well researched, and easy to understand if you have a mind for understanding how people communicate and what meaning we create from this. This degree is extremely open to interpretation by employers, and therefore one has many opportunities for job applications once graduated. King University has an extremely high job placement record for their graduates, 92% when I researched it 6 months ago. This college is a Presbyterian based university with options to continue into a Master's program if one were so inclined, and its facilities are well maintained and professional, complete with a library and computers to work on. The price point is very fair, costing far less than other state run universities and allowing for grants and loans through federal aid (FAFSA) if one needs help. Lastly, the classes are on the smaller side, my class having 10 people, and in my opinion this is wonderful as it allows for group discussions and teamwork while creating a sense of being heard and listened to in the classroom. This also allows for more assistance from the professors and more attention to detail when questions arise about assignments or readings. All in all, this university has been and will continue to be a great learning and growing experience for myself and others."
