What Our Students Say

Life doesn’t have to get in the way of you achieving your goals. The Bachelor’s Degree for Professionals program made me realize it’s never too late and it can be done. As a first-generation student, it was important for me to set an example for my son and the rest of my family, because I believe that higher education is important and shows commitment.
