DO NOT ENROLL HERE. It is run by money maggots. They enroll you into a program and then cancell the program when you are just about to graduate, AND KEEP YOUR MONEY !!! DO NOT ENROLL HERE. Find a regionally approved school (such as American Public University). DO NOT ENROLL HERE

Grantham as a whole is OK. Is it MIT? By far no. Is it a wast of time and money? By far no. I have have a degree from St Leo university (both brick and mounter and on line courses) I attended a couple of community collages as well as Radford University in VA. My primary problem was I did not know what I wanted to be when I grew up. On line vis classroom. Classes in a classroom are much easier in my opinion than On line classes partially due to the lower amount of pear interaction. Format makes a huge difference. Forced discussion boards and webanars is the way to go. Because of Grantham 's increased (alittle to much) flexibility to deployed military members their utilization of technology is a little lacking. That being said I do see improvements with their new platform and some of my instructors are beginning to use technologies such as Skype to hold their office house. I would like to see Grantham embrace these technologies more in order to improve overall quality of education. Because of time flexibility On line classes are my best choice. If you are not disciplined do not attend any on line class as you will not do the work and will fail. If you have a problem with an instructor make it known to the administration. If if you have and idea for technologies to better facilitate your education make it know to the administration. In the end it is your education and you will get out of it exactly what you put in. Open book tests: On line classes have open book tests! So do traditional classes. So does life. I know no engineers who do no reference. The key to anything is knowing how to find the material you kneed to solve the problem. That is the entire basis of higher education. It is not wrote memorization but the ability to determine the proper course of action with the given variables that defines success. The key to preventing the over utilization of reference materials on examinations is time limits. Which I am seeing more and more instructors at Grantham utilize. Credits not transferring. Ok now this kink of sucks. A lot of Grantham's credits will not transfer to some traditional schools. This is a true deficit of Grantham's. That being said. No matter where you go you are going to run into transfer credit problems. Unless the course work is near identical most of your upper level classes anywhere have a hard time transferring to something useful for you. Grantham could improve its position by seeking regional accreditation. If you do not plan on finishing your degree at Grantham I would not start for now. All in all I am content with Grantham and wold give it an overall rating of a C+ with MIT being an A+ but I don't have A+ time. If I cold be a full time student I would not attend Grantham but only because I would like to have lab time. Grantham is getting the job done and is working for me.
