I would have to agree with the comments regarding National University being a school for "adults". You have to do the homework and it is not easy crunching a semester of work into 4 weeks. You have to be serious and give it your all. The outcome of your hard work and dedication will pay off. I thought National University was outstanding and provided me an education that I incorporate into my day, everyday! I completed the BA program when I left San Diego State Univ. to get married and then didn't return until I lost my catalog year. It was not easy working full time and having a 2 year old. I had to study all the time, i.e. breaks, lunches, and when everyone in my house was finally asleep. I had no life, but as able to finish my degree relatively quickly because I had almost finished everything at SDSU. I then went on my way to have a career with a large insurer, a few promotions later I started a graduate program in WA state at another university. I ended up moving to the midwest for a new assignment and lo and behold found the same MS program at NU online. I loved the online program. It was rigorous, but a great experience. You must be comfortable with technology, and be very self-motivated. I completed my thesis and found the professors available and helpful, but not easy. You have to work for your grades. Now I'm in middle management and can see I will likely have many more opportunities ahead of me because I did what was needed to be competitive academically, work hard, etc. I'm sorry for those who did not have a good experience, but I wonder how much of this was NU or you. My personal accountability created a wonderful academic experience which is serving me quite well. Hang in there, do the work and it will pay off. By the way, accredition is key and is the reason my employer paid for the Masters Degree. Rigor and achievement in the program is up to you.
