Sometimes, you get what you pay for.

This is my final semester (I hope) at FHSU as a Virtual College student. It has been an up and down experience. On the positive side, there is the lower tuition. On the negative side, there are the mediocre classes. In short, most of the classes are self-taught through reading books and supplements handed out by the instructors. Some classes may have pre-recorded lectures for you to view. Those are usually at the least two years old--some quite much older. As for testing, please check your results after the tests are completed. I have found numerous errors in the grading where my answers were marked wrong when they were actually correct. The excuses I received were that the exams or quizzes are new and not edited. I suppose the students were used as guinea pigs for those. Those who complained were consoled with revised grades. Some instructors seem to talk you out of taking their classes. I inquired about a class that had one opening left. The instructor replied back that the textbooks were out of stock, so I couldn't enroll. After asking the bookstore about this, I was told they had plenty of books. I decided not to pursue it any further because, after getting a reply from the instructor like that, I lost my interest in the class. If you do decide to attend FHSU, please question everything. If you don't ask for help, you will flounder. No one will care to help you, even if they know your academics are poor.

GOOD PROGRAM, bad faculty

I really want to let people know about FHSU. Fort Hays offers this virtual degree program. Most of the teachers are very comprehensive, BUT, there are few so far very complicated. COMPLICATED teachers will not care if blackboard went down, or if you have a late assigment. I had an experience with a tutor of lab that mailed the experiment materials to the students like 2 weeks late. When I received my kit, some deadlines where gone. He did not allowed me to send my work, eventhough was his fault. I e-mailed the tutor, the counselor, the Director of the Departmend and I got no help. I had to widraw from this class. The same happened with another course last semester. I would not recomend people taking classes in this Institution. It is not worth to pass only in 75 percent of the classes each semester because some of the faculty is really careless.
