I love SCU because it has the proper accredidation (I guess I cannot spell, eh?) which is 100% legit. I graduate from there in April 2007 and I just love it and am actually considering applying to grad schools in Alabama. This is a real live University which is not a diploma mill at all because it has that nice regional accredidation of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

You can take everything online or even up and move to Alabama and take all of your courses there (but, keep in mind they have no on campus housing). The tests are not proctored but if you cheat (like cut and paste from the web or any of that), the prof will fail you, so it all works out nicely.

Financial Aid sucks royal eggs because if you are not an Alabama resident, you will not qualify for almost any grants or scholarships (as of right now, the scholarships for undergrads are all Bama based) outside of the pell grant and student loans. They used to have an Excell Scholarship for all students, but they do not have that anymore starting this fall. However, they did lower the prices of their classes to make up for that. I am just saying that you should not expect a great deal of financial aid asides from one small grant and a loan. But, you can always pay out of pocket and go part time, you know?

All in all the school is quite alright. Mostly if you are to study Theology or Counseling. I really haven't one compaint about the place except that I do not advise one taking math or science here because the profs for that barely have the background to teach any of that. Go to Community College for math or science and ask permission to transfer it over.

If you are religous, then this University is for you. You have to take a lot of electives in bible and theology, so be prepared for that. If you are not religious, this school will work with you because it says so in their handbook.

Basically this school is great. Just manage your time well with these online classes and keep organised. Remember, this is not a diploma mill at all. This is a very religious (Christian)orientated school, so keep your nose clean, learn your bible well (on top of your other studies) and do not cheat (because they will throw) you out.
