"I am in the massage program and love it! The only issue I've had at all with the school is that they tend to treat you like you are still in high school. We are told what to wear, have a limit to hours we can miss no matter how good our grade is before we auto fail, and some instructers try to hide the fact that we can actually get our license and begin practicing before we graduate. When I found that out I was a little upset because that is something that can help our career instead of them hiding it they should put it out there for us and let us know how and what we can do. But the actual curriculum was amazing! I learned so much through this college its crazy. A typical massage school gives you 250 hours whereas ssbc gives you 660 so you can imaine the education you recieve. definintly even with its flaws i would reccommend this college!"

"Mainly loved convenience. Meant that I could do it when I had time around other jobs, get help outside when I needed it. Somewhat isolated although the school does their best to alleviate the problem; really it is up to you to try and make friends through your class, get enough outside contact. Remember that although it is through 'net, you may have problems using this diploma if you are from out of state- legal systems vary slightly state-to-state. Also, the school has a blog and myspace site; it means that everyone can continually keep in touch- there are groups for every area, so you can post job ops and so on. Definitely more personal that way. Prepared me very well- got me a decent background in the area, found work as a paralegal- since I already have a university degree I only did the diploma program not the associate one. The experience in a legal environment is what I am hoping will bump me into the competitive range for getting into law school. I was really worried about finding a job when I'm finished- nothing to do with me personally, only that I have not really interviewed for a full-time job that I really had to compete for. I wanted to find a great job in a really competitive environment (working for the city- postings do not come up often). I got a LOT of help with writing resumes from them. Also interviewing, job search; they make it clear that the point is to support you, so it relieved some of the stress. Great choice because it works well as far as time is concerned and is budget friendly. Also counsellors are willing to help you find financial aid- always good!"

"I needed to find a program that would allow me to take classes on my schedule, having a full time job and family. SBBC online allowed me to partake in a rich curriculum, with the availability to confer with faculty and classmates via internet chats, emails and even phone calls using voice of IP. My degree has allowed me to instantly move up two grades in pay and provides a much brighter future."
