I have been attending what I thought was College for two weeks. Turns out when this site asked me what did I study, I entered computer skills for college which did not even come up as an actual College course. I've been trying to log into their ohiolink in order to get articles to cite For an upcoming paper. I cannot login it tells me that my registration has expired or is invalid. My paper is now late due to this. I've been trying to contact my facilitator for three days through email with no reply. I called my student advisor and they gave me another number to call which no surprised nobody answered. They were quick to enroll me without even discussing my financial aid or student loans. I failed my first class due to late papers because they failed to tell me that I needed to have a Windows operating system. I was submitting papers through Chromebook and they were not going through. They still failed me for late papers. After I went out and bought a computer that was compatible with their classes just so I could turn in my papers. They're now emailing me telling me that I have a time limit to send back the papers they require for my financial aid and if I do not hurry and send them back they are going to turn the two classes I've taken over to collection. The school is a scam. Jokes on them I never signed anything so they won't get one penny out of me or my financial aid.
For this to be a Christian University, I find it very disturbing that there was work due on a Christian holiday which is Christmas day. An extension was given until Friday; however, at a traditional university, most students were off from school. There was no understanding for work to be due by the professor once we returned back on January 6th, 2019. We are supposed to have two weeks off, but that was interrupted by work being due three days after Christmas. I spent my entire Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. My uncle pass right after Christmas and we are planning the funeral. I spoke to Robin from the academic department and she did not even offer her condolences to my family and I. Robin gave a very nonchalant attitude and said that you have two weeks, but her mind may have been clouded with air because she forgot that I spent an entire week on my break completing assignments. My assignments did in fact get completed on New Year Eve instead. Who really wants to spend their NYE working on papers after ministering in church on Sunday during their so-called two weeks break. Very disturbing that she could not even say I'm sorry for your loss, but rather said you did have two weeks off. This woman is completely clueless and classless about being compassionate and Christian like for people in pain. Robin should be required to take the pastoral care class because she had no heart at all. To add, I was supposed to receive a phone call back last Monday from my advisor and this is nine days later and I still have not heard from Michelle Sample. Do not attend this university. They have not been able to handle their growth outside the traditional university. Yes, I do have a 3.99 GPA and have always been a student that excels in everything I do for my entire life. www.nvys.org
Highly recommend this school's MBA program for time-conscious driven professionals. With literally no time on the schedule to add one more video conference or meeting, OCU's 100% online MBA permitted at-own-pace completion of course work. Due to the reach of the online platform there was more than adequate interaction with likeminded individuals, both staff & students in different time zones, all pursuing like objectives. The technical support was excellent; the staff, highly qualified & very professional.
I attended this school's online program for Business IT. The classes are not geared to give you the experience you need. My experience is a nightmare, I started with guidance counselor who was very good. She went on vacation and I had no one to handle my questions pertaining to my classes. I spent all summer trying to reach her to no avail. I was assigned another guidance counselor who did not even introduce herself and she was not all interested in helping. I came to know that I had a different counselor because another issue arose with one my courses. In which she said oh by the way i'm your new counselor. There were many issue with my classes I kept being placed in classes that were 2- 3 weeks into the course work. Books were 90% of the time late and when I would ask to be dropped they would still bill me even though the books were late. I often had to speak to students and wait for phone appointments when it came to resolving class issues. I spent 14,000 dollars of my financial aid on 9 credits. I submitted pertinent paperwork when I enrolled this also included my 2015 IRS transcripts, I was asked to resubmit the same paper work a year later because they could find it. I spent 7 months waiting for a reply from this school. In the interim my guidance counselor never once reached out to me to ask how I was doing not once. This school placed me on academic probation while I was waiting for my IRS transcript. I was told by a Christian School that I would receive a letter and that I could appeal. I contacted the head of the counseling dept, she placed all the blame on me, and not the school. This conversation was followed by a letter of dis-enrollment from this so called school. I would not recommend this school at all to anyone not even to anyone seeking a doctrinal degree. The online courses are marginal at best and they don't give you the tools needed, I would not at all recommend this school. STAY AWAY!!!
Save your money and really research colleges before you go to them. The school is run by students with the exception of most of the professors. So getting answers never happens. They waited two days before my last class to email me .....my advisor,to let me know that she had reviewed my transcripts and I actually need two more biblical classes and may not be able to graduate because of it. Now I had Already purchased my cap and gown and official transcripts as She led me to the websites and had me believe I was finished 150 credits later . Wish I would have went somewhere else. Total nightmare
I could not be more pleased with the final results of my degree program. The only thing that a student needs to remember to make anything out of the degree is to have experience. If you do not have experience you will not do well gaining employment after you get your degree. I have applied for the most simple jobs and now I am overqualified without experience. That is not the schools fault. The only thing I think academia lacks is the ability to address that a student may need to do internships while in college. Otherwise, I had great professors (with the exception of one which bullied me until the dean kicked him out). The classes were professional and I obtained a lot of knowledge. I couldn't ask for anything better.
I graduated last spring with my Bachelor's degree and I loved OCU! The professors were first rate and the education was vigorous. The cost was reasonable, the staff was engaged, and prompt when it came to questions about assignments or grades. I am currently enrolled in the Master's program for Ministry with a concentration in Pastoral Counseling. I am carrying a 4.0 currently and graduated with honors in the BA program; it is challenging work but very rewarding at the same time. I highly recommend this school.
This college is eager to enroll students, they are not easy to contact once you are enrolled. Questions do not get answered or addressed. They have a tendency to answer what they think you want to hear, without taking time to understand what you are asking. VERY FRUSTRATING. Makes me feel like I am just repeatedly beating my head against the wall
First, I graduated with an Associates degree in Christian Ministry Summa Cum Laude, I then decided to continue on for my Bachelor degree, big mistake. Many classes had only three people in them, there were so few in fact that they had to cancel one of my semesters, which in turn screwed up my graduation date as well as financing. It was impossible to get them to fix the situation, currently I just dropped my class and am looking to transfer what credits I can (90 out of 104 earned) to another college. My grades have never been an issue as I have carried a 3.99 GPA throughout. A terrible experience and waste of money, do not consider this school.
Far to many basic repetitive classes. Not even touching the main course. The layout and instruction is far to confusing and not written clearly. Seems like a bunch of dimwits put it all together. I did not finish my 1st 10 weeks because there are little communications of clarity when needing help. They have ZERO webinars, and I find those important and very helpful since those are done in real time! Needless to say I ma switching online colleges. Overall HORRIBLE and I do NOT recommend this online college!!! RUN AWAY FROM IT FAST!!!!!
