Excellent marks so far

I have completed one class and I'm halfway through my second class at CSU. I was able to transfer most of my credits earned previously from Indiana University. I'm currently working towards my Bachelor's in Business Admin with a concentration in Project Management. Anyone that has said CSU is a degree mill or doesn't offer a valid education obviously has no experience with CSU. I can attest that the classes are top-rate and use current textbooks. The coursework is not easy and requires quite a bit of work. I have received a huge amount of support since starting. Honestly, my one complaint so far might be that I'm receiving emails from so many people I'm a bit confused on who to go to if I do have a problem. The CSU staff has done everything possible to offer me support and help since the day I inquired about their services. The two professors I've had so far have been very knowledgeable and helpful. They grade work within a few days and offer comments and help on everything. As far as accreditation, you need to do your homework and understand the difference between national and regional accreditation and the pros and cons that go with them. CSU is nationally accredited with the DETC and any employer that looks the school up with the Department of Education will find CSU listed as a fully accredited school. People that went to Regionally accredited schools are snotty about it and will tell you that a national accredited school isn't a "real" college. This is simply not true. If you don't have the money to afford a regionally accredited school, then a nationally accredited one might be a perfect choice.

CSU is OK

I am in the process of finishing up my MBA in Project Management. I have completed 28 of 37 credits required. CSU is an OK school. All schools have their issues and CSU is no different. I have had an overall good experience with CSU. The courses are relatively inexpensive compared to the alternatives but the ability to complete courses and assignments anytime is a plus I like. Like all schools there are some minor issues with the customer service misplacing documents or receiving slow service but overall the staff is very pleasant to deal with. Some of the professors leave something to be desired. Some are distant and do not interact with students unless the student begins the communication process. Overall I would say the experience thus far has been OK.
