I am currently pursuing an MBA Degree wtih a concentration in Accounting & Finance.
I am in my second course and I can say the courses have been challenging but exciting.
I am really put up to the challenge and feel that the professors are up to par.
I really feel like I am being provided an opportunity to obtain an first class education.

I am in my second term and I love this school. Don't think because its an online school that its all easy work. It is a challange and you have to want to learn. I have had great professors that give feedback and the advisors contact me on a regular basis. I would tell anyone check them out if you are serious about learning.

I am in my second term with Fl tech online and I really like it. My advisor Heather is awesome and the classes ARE challenging and definitely NOT just handed to you. You have to STUDY. i am an undergrad Accounting major and I work full time. I am really enjoying it. Their setup is so great.

After I turned in everything that was needed to begin FL Tech, I was told to go ahead and start my 1st MBA class. They said that I haven't been approved yet but not to worry because everything was a green light. The delay of acceptance was because they were overwhelmed with last minute applications. I go through half the class, write papers, take quizzes....then one night when I tried to log in, I was told I was blocked. I was sent an email days later stating that I was not approved because my GPA was a 2.0.
I withdrew & the tuition was taken cared of. No problem. I started in Spring 2009, so I thought everything was okay. The silly university sends me an invoice last week....over a year later...stating the books were not returned so I have to pay over $200! I told them that if I had known I was suppose to send them back, I would have. They said it was in the agreement. They didn't even send me a notice to get the books back. I know part of this is my fault for not reading the agreement, but I thought I was a student because I was taking the tests before the notice came to inform me I wasn't accepted.
Stay away from this place. They cost too much money & there are many other universities that show professionalism and makes sure you're accepted before you start class.
Waste of time and money!

I am finishing my third class with this "college", and if I had not already invested $6000 so far, I would drop this place like a bad habit. STAY AWAY!
My VERY first class I was ripped off my University Alliance "counselor". I asked for the ISBN for the book for the class, my "counselor" John Gilliam, told me it was a "special" book that couldnt be purchased anywhere but through University Alliance. So I believed him and spent $200 on a book.
When I received the book in the mail, I checked the ISBN and found it on Amazon for $60! I called customer service (which didnt pick up the link the first 5 times I called) only to be told that John's manager was "out". These people are SCAM ARTISTS!! STAY AWAY!! Go somewhere else, anywhere else is better than this place!!

I just finished my first class with florida tech online, and it will be my last class. I had a introduction to information systems class. While it is an intro class, some of the questions were excessively easy (one question was "what is a virus?") Other questions made no sense, other questions had incorrect answers. Most questions were poorly worded and some even had spelling errors.I emailed the professor about one question, stating the answer was incorrect, I even pointed out what page in the book the information was on. The professor all but admitted he was wrong and refused to give credit for the question. Quite frankly this education is a joke, and is excessively expensive ($2000 a class). If you want a real education I suggest you go elsewhere.
