Elisa P, Big Y

I enjoy Champlain's method of instruction as it is not fully book-based. My classes have been lecture-based and they use real-life experience and fact-based knowledge presented ways students can understand and associate to their work. I've done online schooling for my entire college career and this is the first time I'm actually learning something...The weekly discussions with other classmates expand on each lesson, providing even more insight into the topic from many different views. The online platform is easy to navigate and the flexible classes allow me fit my education into my busy life.

Champlain has made earning a college degree accessible through their affordable truED preferred tuition rates and on a schedule that works for you!
