The student success rate is 84 percent. Some successful students have this to say about their experiences:
- “Taking this condensed course helped me get back into the mindset and proper habits of being back in school especially with Microbiology in the Spring. I like how your lessons are applicable to skill sets needed in the real world and will prove helpful in the future.”
- “The overall workload was not extreme, even with the holidays, I felt I had plenty of time to complete the course without exhausting myself…As an online course, I felt it was easy to navigate, organized, detailed and the grading was fair.”
- “(Enrolling in a wintermester) showed me that I am a lot stronger than I ever gave myself credit for, and I am grateful. I have never taken an online course, and this course was set up for success with a lot of information, so I enjoyed taking this class.”
