"Thanks to recent price drops this is one of the most affordable online schools I could find. I will be able to cover 90% of my tuition using my company's employee tuition reimbursement program. Classes are 2 months long and by default you start a new one every month. You can also choose to take one class at a time like I did. There are no extra fees and digital text books are included with tuition which is also a big savings. The teachers I have had are a mixed bag but most of the actual teaching is done through pre-recorded video. Curriculum is standardized and not designed by the teacher grading your work which I feel leads to confusion and frustration regarding expectations for some assignments. It's not the best school, but it is affordable, flexible, and regionally accredited. Bottom line is, I wouldn't be getting an MBA if I had pay more or go to a physical class after work; this school meets my needs perfectly."

"The program was well laid out and it was easy to follow a path of courses. Other colleges I have had to plead to get the attention of a an adviser to help me figure out how to best complete my degree. It took me two years of studying my tail off, some classes were easy some were not; this is at ANY college as all teachers very. I have since attended other Universities (Troy University & University of Denver). ALL of my credits from WIU transferred one way or another. Troy University was online format and I wonder how that place is still in business with (however, this is not review about them). The financial aid office never gave me any hassles. What I never understood, until later in life, is how come I would never receive a Fin. Aid refund like my friends did. Turns out, the school returns funds in excess to the government on your behalf (in the fine print) although, you can opt out of this if you like... GOOD! I was too young to be dealing with "extra" money and the debt, thanks West! And never having to buy books --- HUGE benefit! The last thing is I did get a good education from this school . By the time I graduated I had learned more than my boss knew about business. Within 6 months of graduating my boss asked to be demoted and I was then next in line to have his job. :-) I have gotten lots of interviews since then and none of them cared where my degree was from, only that I had one from an accredited school. WIU was under sanctions, but as of June 2015 those sanctions have been removed."
