"My experience in King University’s online Communication program has been nothing but positive. When I chose to finish my degree online, I was afraid I would be sacrificing the quality of my education for the flexibility of an online degree. However, through King I was able to get my degree while working full time and never felt like I was missing out on a quality education. Classes are in 5-week terms, which seemed stressful at first, but I came to really enjoy. It allows you to focus completely on one subject at a time and get the most out of each class. The COMM professors are genuinely helpful and seem to care about the success of every student. Every professor I had gave helpful and thorough feedback on assignments that helped me better my work. The courses and topics covered are all practical and relevant to anyone in the workforce. Overall, I recommend King’s Online Communication program to anyone looking for a flexible way to get a great education."

"The online communications program here at King has been a great experience since the start. I was worried at first that online courses may be tricky when it came to communicating back and forth with the professors when I had questions, concerns, etc., but that has not been the case at all. Every professor I have had has been extremely quick to reply and they all seem to genuinely care about how you do in their classes. I would absolutely recommend this degree path to anyone wanting to learn legitimate skills that apply to the real world."

"I transferred into King University as a Junior from a large Knoxville University. I am Communications major and have taken many courses in the communications program. My experience has been great with flexible scheduling, and exceptional professors, such as Dr. Sloan, Professor Rebecca Huckaby, and Professor Cora Young. Our classes were only 5 weeks long. The 5-week courses allowed me, as a working adult, to obtain a degree with great flexibility. Each class has a low student to professor ratio, which allowed for more one-on-one time with each student. These professors are accessible and actually care about you obtaining the required elements of each class. The Communication Program offers a knowledgeable and experienced staff of professors who care for their students, that some are not from teaching backgrounds. Each professor shared opportunities in the workforce that suited the field of study for that course. I would recommend the Communication Program at King University to anyone that is seeking a bachelor's degree in East Tennessee."

"Almost ten years ago today, I began my college entry essay with this statement: “Hello, my name is Cameron Taylor and I am a senior at Richmond Christian School. This fall, I plan to major in mass communications at Liberty University. This degree will help me become a positive influence in my community.” This introduction was as vague as my life plans. Like most high school graduates, I knew very little about college. My parents, teachers, and friends conditioned me to see it as a stepping stone to adulthood. Little did I know, college would be the highest step, and the heaviest stone that would remain unturned in my life. Fast forward almost ten years and multiple failed college attempts, I found King University. This program although not exclusive, feels tailor made for my needs and learning style. During my time here I have made the Deans list as well as the Presidents list. I give all the credit to my wonderful professors who never help any punches and always pushed me to be the best version of myself. My only regret in my educational experience is that I didn’t find King University sooner."

"King Univesity is a small school located in beautiful Bristol, TN. The campus is surrounded by mountains and various rivers that you can hike, fish, hunt, or simply enjoy the scenery. As for the communications program, it is completely online with most of the professors located at King's satellite campus in Knoxville, TN. This was the third school I've taken online classes at and the various professors we're all accessible when trying to contact them. I lived several hours away from every professor and it was no issue to ask a question or get clarification on an assignment, it was as easy as if we were in class. The assignments you are given will be focused around the class, challenging but not the prototypical assignments that you find time-consuming with little to do with your career goals. Be prepared to use the required text in all of your classes. All in all, with COVID lingering and much of education being pushed online, this program should be considered strongly by any potential communication major."

"I first started at King University in July of 2017. The enrollment counselors talked me through each step of the enrollment process. The financial aid office helped my complete my FASFA and counseling for student loans. The bookstore staff helped me receive all of my books in a timely manner. Each professor I have had has been nothing short of amazing! They truly look for students to strive and obtain the class credits. They have always responded in a timely manner and even offered video conferencing if a student has needed help. Throughout the graduation process, the school makes sure that each student is available to receive their caps and gowns in both the Knoxville location and the Bristol location. Now that I am going back for my Master's Degree. The enrollment counselors call once a week to make sure that nothing is needed of them and we are just waiting for classes to start. Along with all new tutorials if they were needed. King University has been a blessing and a school that I will soon be part of the alumni!"

"I have been enrolled here at King for almost three years, and I truly believe that this University is one of the best online programs in the state of Tennessee. From the application process, all the way down to the instructors, each and every person I have had contact with, has been very helpful and genuinely makes me feel like they want me to succeed. Each class I have been in, has been very flexible and work friendly. I love how it feels like a self-paced program that does not just pile on classwork on you in a sink or swim kind of way. Without King and their COMM program online, I would not be able to obtain a bachelor’s degree in a major I like due to work and family. It is a Christian-based university and you are treated with such respect while you are at King, you honestly feel like family here. I am thankful I chose King!"

"I have been enrolled in COMM Studies at King University for about 3 months now. My first semester is coming to an end and my experience thus far has been very smooth and successful. I look forward to completing my degree here, and for those who decide to do the same, it is truly the best way to complete school in a timely manner. I am working a full-time job in the insurance industry working 40+ hours a week and I have not once struggled with balancing work and school. Having a balance of the two does require me to plan ahead and set time aside to complete my work, but it has never put me in a bind. I would recommend this program to anyone who is trying to work full time and complete their degree. The teachers have also been very understanding of my scenario. I have had to submit a few assignments late and sometimes life happens, but for the most part teachers are forgiving and allow you a chance to make up for a late assignment. King University allows me to fulfill my degree, have a work life and still have plenty of time with family and loved ones."

"I chose King University’s communication program, and it is the best decision I have made. I had gone to a community college but decided to take a year off to decide what I wanted to do. I ended up looking around for Tennessee colleges with communication programs. I wanted to be able to stay close to home, but also get a degree at an accredited college. It was important that if I went to school for communication that the school was an accredited college. I wanted to make sure I was going to leave the school with a successful job and a great salary. I found King University, researched their communication programs, and realized they had an online program. After taking a year off from college, I had a job that I worked full time and was going to struggle finding time for school. I was sold when I found out King University had an online program. I immediately put in my application, because flexible hours made it possible for me to work and go to school. I was so happy I could work on my school work on my own schedule. It was the right choice for me. I am pleased with my decision. The teachers are wonderful, communicate quickly and efficiently. The program has really helped me learn and develop for my degree. I have recommended King University to many people and continue to do so. The college is a perfect fit for busy bees like me."

"I started the Communication program at King University in January 2019. After researching my options of schools would provide me the best education, I found KING. Their online program makes it convenient for working adults to complete a bachelor’s degree in a fast-track degree program in 16-18 months. The application process was one of the easiest I have dealt with and the faculty and staff is helpful and always available to answer questions. I am very please with how smoothly this process has been for me. I would recommend King COMM program to anyone who is thinking about going back to college."
