They conned me into taking classes that IQuite BrightSocial Work
They conned me into taking classes that I didn't need and spending thousands of dollars I shouldn't have to spend. They are into money not into learning. The advisors are unhelpful and uninformed at the Madison, WI campus. They were completely rude and condescending when I just asked them questions. Overall the in-person classes has been positive but advisors and online professors make the process confusing and unpleasant. The advisors in Madison are also extremely unorganized and treat you like your pretentious if you already hold a degree from a State school like UW-Madison. No one advocates for their students there and it is a shame.

The face-to-face classes are ok, nothing great though. If you do go to UIU, never take an online course. Upper Iowa has the worst online courses. Online courses are supposed to be flexible but here the courses are so rigidly structured and require participation nearly everyday. The software they use is archaic and full of glitches. Good luck getting it to work when you need it. If you have a question in a course, ask google-the instructor may help you, but I wouldn't count on it anytime soon and they will most likely be rude about it.
