About the Online Experience:
Online experience with incredible personalized attention
“Having experience with both online and on campus classes from Law school to community college, I can honestly say I have never received as much individual attention as I did when attending Continuing & Career Education at Assumption University . My professors knew my name, knew my background and what was important to me in life. This interaction on a personal level helped me feel comfortable and enabled me to have better discussions. It was easy to understand assignments and to get feedback after they were completed. Without the experience and guidance, I gained from attending Assumption University, I would not be the person I am today.”
The best online educational experience I have had
“My online experience at Assumption University was phenomenal. Attending school online allowed me to continue working, spend time with my family and meet other responsibilities while still getting an excellent education. The online classes were managed well, the software worked well and the professors were heavily engaged with the class. Some of the best moments were sitting in a virtual class with video communication and having small discussions with the instructors in real time. I have attended classes online and on campus, both as an undergrad and a law school student. I can honestly say that Assumption University’s online courses were the best educational experience I have had.”
Accessible classmates and professors
“I had a very good experience at Assumption University throughout my Business Studies program. I was a little skeptical of the online class experience and hoped I would be able to learn in that format. Taking online classes at Assumption University was much easier than I thought. If I had questions, it was easy enough to post a discussion to the board for fellow classmates to share their input, or go to the professor for help.”
About Assumption Faculty and Staff:
Professors display genuine passion to help students excel
“I had an amazing experience completing my Bachelor’s Degree in the online program. The online program allowed me to pursue my educational goals while working full-time and raising a family. The professors displayed their genuine passion to help students excel. I always felt that my voice was heard whether it was with my advisor, professor, or other staff at CCE.”
Meaningful conversations both one-on-one and in online sessions
“The faculty at Assumption are amazing. Over the course of two years I had so many meaningful conversations both one-on-one and in online sessions with the instructor and classmates. Professors constantly offered to arrange video sessions and phone calls with students to discuss the week’s material if needed. They were knowledgeable in their fields and brought a range of experience to the online classroom. My theology professor made a lasting impact on my life and my faith. This was something I could not put a price on, and it all happened over the internet.”
