I can not say enough positive things about Charter Oak State College. I never would have completed my college degree without their flexible class and credit-earning options. First, the staff is wonderful. Everyone from financial aid counselors to academic advisors respond quickly and efficiently to all questions and inquiries. Typically, my advisor responded to my questions the same day. Second, the vast majority of the faculty is excellent. They are easy to get in touch with via e-mail and/or phone. I had a math professor who offered weekly call-in hours for help. The content and structure of most classes is challenging and rewarding. You WILL get a quality education at Charter Oak. My concentration was psychology. I sat for the psychology GRE and did very well thanks to comprehensive/challenging classes I took through COSC. Third, in addition to taking online classes, you can also obtain credit through portfolio reviews and standardized tests, such as CLEP, DANTES, Excelsior, and the GRE. These options help students save a great deal of time and money (although class tuition is very reasonable). Finishing a degree at Charter Oak is really THE way for adults with work and family responsibilities to complete their education. I have a demanding, rotating work schedule, so I was not able to attend traditional college classes. I am proud to be an alumna of Charter Oak State College.

If it wasn't for Charter Oak, I never would have finished my college degree. As an adult working full-time (and then some) and raising my son, Charter Oak provided the only viable, affordable option for me to finish my degree. The support I received, both academic and administrative, was excellent. My entire educational experience with Charter Oak was top-notch. I highly recommend the school to all non-traditional learners.
