Online Course Was Great – I only took one. It was Sociology. The instructor was great and really challenged students to think outside the box. I really enjoyed this course more than I thought I would. We had weekly writing assignments which were manageable with our other class loads. I highly recommend this to other students.

Accelerated Classes Are Great for Me – I'm going for my BSN. It's a very expensive school and the only one that fit within my time frame for my career. I was able to sign up and get started immediately. However, their BSN program is so new that some of the classes are "guinea pigs" which I don't think is right. The teachers are great and really care about the students. We did have an issues with unprofessionalism on the part of the associate dean, which really turned me off. I just think for being a guinea pig, these classes are way too expensive. Plus I'm a 4.0 student and so far I haven't received much by way of scholarships, etc. It's really frustrating.

Inside Scoop – The school is not very big so your classes are small and that is a big plus. Your teachers take an interest in you, even the general ed ones. They have even seen me studying around campus for a test that i have in their class later and they stop, sit down and ask if I have any questions!!! It is also nice that the school is so small because you get to know your class mates and everyone is working towards the same goal (RN).

General Campus – It is a state of the art campus, with the smartboards and computer labs to prove it. There are plenty of computers to access and free wifi if you have your own. The only downfall is that there aren't any student activities such as athletics, clubs, government, or greek affiliats; but if you're going to this school, that is not what you are here for.

Great Staff – This school has a great admissions staff which accurately describes the program and the effort necessary to succeed.

Although I may not always be happy with this schools performance. I do believe that from all the difficult endeavors they put out way, it may pay off in the long run when we graduate.

WCU Flexibility – It was somewhat difficult transferring courses, I had to really look for my old syllabus and books for some. My frustrations have been my schedule.

WCU Diversity – Our campus is very diverse. We have a wide variety of ages, but the majority is the younger crowd in their early 20s. There are some just a year out of highschool.

We only have one computer lab and it can be very impacted. Printing is okay, unless it's very busy and you get your printing papers taken by others. I try to go on hours that are more low key. It would be nice to have a bigger library to study. Also, another place to make copies.

The school is a fast-paced accelerated program. Before you know it for taking the final/exit exam already on the 8th week which determines if you passed the class. I think the HESI should be a mandatory class assignment, it should be 20% instead of 30% of the overall grade. Most students work hard throughout the term. After each term, the score that must be achieved gets harder and harder. That can be difficult if you never had medical experience, and it was in the first HESI for the nursing students.

Very Specialized – What makes WCU unique is the fact that it focuses on students who want to become nurses or dental hygienist. Since the population of student there are smaller compared to other colleges we get more attention.

Organized and Friendly – I like the school because it is not too big where I can get lost and the teachers and faculty are helpful. WCU has a schedule for each of us so that we can get out as fast as possible and not linger.

Simple and Easy – We I first started to attend West Coast University I thought the transition would be a difficult one they are such a prestigious school. But it turned out some of my classes transferred and getting all the financial things out of the way took less than a day.

Invested in Their Students Success – I'm in the nursing program. The classes are a good size. The teachers always willing to help if you have any questions, and there is tutoring available. The school is invested in their students success. The class registration process is done by the school, so it doesnt allow you the flexability to choose your own schedule.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Fast and Easy – The tuition is too expensive, but in the end it is worth it because you are gaureented a seat in their school. You don't have to deal with wait lists. The finical aid process is easy.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
