  6. I can only take one class at a time since I work full time

    March 8, 2019 | https://www.council8education.org/testimonial/644/

    Unfortunately, I can only take one class at a time since I work full time, but I’m on class 7 or 8 right now. So my 2-year program will likely go for 3+ years. I never really liked school and struggled a lot. I still have a hard time, but it’s a great feeling of accomplishment when I finish a class. And quite a shock to receive A’s and B’s! AA in Business Administration. I have an awesome …Read More

    I would like to take a moment to commend Veronica Jackson for being the most diligent and helpful advisor to my wife and I throughout the enrollment process. We faced quite a few hiccups while trying to register my wife for the upcoming Fall semester. She just migrated to the United States last year and as a result, some of the required documents were uniquely different from that of the standard a…Read More

    My first semester went great! I have a 4.0 GPA so far. I discovered it wasn’t too scary, it wasn’t too hard and I’m not too old to learn. I’m taking 4 more classes this semester and so far, it’s going well. I’m hoping to take a class or two over the summer and hit the books again in the fall. Thanks for checking in. I’m enjoying my new adventure!…Read More

  10. What a great program!

    March 8, 2019 | https://www.council8education.org/testimonial/what-a-great-program/

    I found out about the Free College program in the Fall of 2017.  At that time, my son was in the middle of his Computer Science Bachelor’s Degree at UMUC and lucky for us, had not taken any of his general education classes.  We were able to enroll him in the program and take advantage of 22 transferable credits, which saved us $11,308.00 If we had known about this sooner, we could have saved…Read More
