I did receive a partial scholarship right at the time I thought I would have to quit school (I was going to ASU at the time) when I was so close to finally finishing. That part was of course great; however, then it was extremely important to keep on top of things as they seem to have their own timetable.

Being an online student, I can only answer to what the other students write about themselves. I would say the most diversity I know of is the age range. The youngest I am aware of in my class is 20, I myself am 44 and I know one other classmate is 53. This is my first and only class so far, but I am really enjoying it!

Ottawa assigned me an advisor right away. The person never changed and the she made the process easy. I needed any prior transcripts, and to fill out the application. It was pretty standard. I was not required to have and SAT or ACT so the process went by fast. I would say the most important criteria is a strong educational background, good GPA, etc.

I have not had an internship, but plan on it. I am confident that Ottawa will be able to provide me with the needed support in my search. They have been wonderful in assisting me in every other area of need.

I have met people from all walks of life and from many places in the country.

Though meeting my classmates in a virtual setting, my fellow classmates seem to be very well-rounded in many aspects.

I feel the students attending Ottawa are diverse from old to young and from various back grounds. Everyone seem to be pleasant to study with and down to earth.

Ottawa was the only online university to offer a bachelors in Mathematic/Education. I'm very please to be able to pursue a degree in this field, especially online.
College Freshman 2013-08-09T19:39:56Z
Ottawa online is very diverse. Students range in age from 18 years fresh out of high school to 50yrs old looks for secondary degree for career change or first time graduates. So Ottawa is pleasantly diverse.

Teachers at Ottawa are very help and knowledgeable of the field of study they teach. The work load is heavy and challenging. You will walk way informed and prepared for the next challenge.

Easy process except they do not offer scholarships.

50-75 thousand college students in town of a half million. great opportunities for night life, food and close to some major city activities. The campus is in a neighborhood setting with some crime but local and campus police are definitely in control. Students are all over the place at all hours with very fer problems.

My financial advisor made the entire process extremely easy and helped me with the financial aid transition from a different school.

Since Ottawa University offers many degree programs completely online, like the one I am taking for Mathematics, off-campus housing doesn't apply nor appeal to me.

None Found – So far, I have not found the Greek Life at Ottawa. Therefore, I do not see its importance or its effect on campus life by any means.

Fair Punishment and Judgement – The main policy that affects all students is in regards to plaigirism. When a student is caught copying other's work and claiming it as their own, the student will be severely punished, but in good reason. The student will likely be expelled from the school and possibly fined. I believe this is fair.

The financial aid system here is great in that there is a lot of communication between offices and yourself. What is bad is that they are not included in some military systems, so the student has to do some extra paperwork manually that schools like UMUC do automatically.

I believe that a car is needed while at Ottawa University. You have to drive a little bit to get to popular shopping spots. On campus, there are barely enough parking spots for everyone, which is why they get a lower than excellent grade.

Atmosphere of Ottawa University in Kansas – The local atmosphere is great around the university. Kansas City is close by which offers the big city feel without the crowds of New York City. There are also numerous parks close by which offer an escape from the hectic college life.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
