I had to take my one-on-one English class, and that was fun. I'm done with my course, so I canceled my membership. StraighterLine needs to send me my money back, and they said they will get back to me. Besides that, I’ll let friends know that if they don't have time, they can go on StraighterLine and take the course.
Appreciate it. Thanks, Renette. Happy holidays!
StraighterLine’s flexibility appealed to me the most and whenever I had issues and I called the consumer line, there was always someone to attend to my inquiry. I've recommended StraighterLine to a lot of people because it’s gonna help them because they can put that into their schedule without having to disrupt their way of life.
Thank you, Kafayat!
I was reading material and quizzes, then had an exam at the end. Experience-wise, I didn't really have any connection with a professor at StraighterLine. So, I read the text that was provided on my own time and took the exams. I had five sections per week where I read notes then I had a quiz taken. I had a good time frame that I wanted to be done with the course and I completed it in a month and a half.
Great work, Benjamin! Best of luck with your future studies!
When I went to StraighterLine, I managed to teach myself a lot of stuff. But when I was transferring credits, I got in touch with one guy and he was really helpful with all that. Just like at Western Governors, you have to be self-driven to be successful in your studies. And the fact that, "I opt to where I pay monthly," kind of pushed me to work as well.
Great to hear, Blair. We're glad the structure worked for you. Best of luck with your future studies!
The experience with StraighterLine has been good but I don’t like ProctorU, the system we have to use when we're taking the final exam. They always make me wait and their system is always not working so, I had to log out and then log in again every time.
Thank you for your feedback, Wooyeoul! Best of luck with your future studies.
I liked that StraighterLine was self-paced, so it's a lot better than having to wait several weeks to do assignments. Also, it's a lot more affordable than going through a community college or a university.
Thank you for your feedback, Ayanna! Glad you had a positive experience. Best of luck with your future studies.
My experience with StraighterLine was very good. It was very easy to get the classes. I had questions about if I had the class or not. But when I checked again, I was able to find it.
Thank you for your feedback, Kenneth! Glad you had a positive experience. Best of luck with your future studies.
The material is very easy to understand and very well condensed. Meaning, I was taught only what I needed to be taught with the least amount of words, which I appreciate because I have a busy schedule. The fact that you can take a course without a time limit of a semester or things like that made it very convenient for me. The whole process, being very fast and on-demand is really what made this experience appreciated.
So happy to hear that you had such a positive experience, Roberto!
I liked that StraighterLine had various start dates and you could just start whenever you'd like to. Then it was a go at your own speed. My learning experience was good. It was a lot of information and it was put together very well. If I had trouble with something, I could spend a little more time on it and not move on so fast from that topic.
Thank you for your feedback, Shirley! Glad you had a positive experience. Best of luck with your future studies.
StraighterLine is a little convenient. It's self-taught and it's nice.
Thank you for your feedback, Muktar! Best of luck with your future studies.
If I took an online class through my college and I did the work too fast, it would kick me out of the course. So I couldn't finish the class quickly. But with StraighterLine, I could finish the class as fast as I need to and there wasn't any deadline. Then I had a proctored final exam and the proctor was very nice. I got everything I needed done and thankfully, most of the colleges take StraighterLine courses for credit, which is very helpful.
Thank you for your feedback, Emma! Best of luck with your future studies.
At StraighterLine, I could do everything on my own time and I didn't have to do each assignment by a certain date. There were some video lectures but it was pretty much self-taught. If you have the self-discipline and you need something that works with your schedule, it's a really nice online class to take. Due to lack of an instructor, sometimes some of the questions on some of the labs were a little confusing. So I had to contact customer support. But besides that, everything went smoothly and it was nice to have those free tutoring hours before my final exam on it.
Thank you for your feedback, Kassidy! Best of luck with your future studies.
I was trying to go for WGU and StraighterLine was the only option for me. I finished the program and scheduling was key to being successful as a student. They could have more updated videos though.
Thanks for your review, Joao! Best of luck with your studies.
I liked StraighterLine. I just finished the program. It was really self-paced, so it allowed me to do it when I could, and work it around work. It was a little more difficult than being in person just because a lot of it was kind of just textbook reading. They were always helpful, though. If you needed help, you can always reach out.
Happy to hear our team was helpful, Mitchell. Best of luck with your future studies!
With StraighterLine, I like working at my own pace. I have nobody assigning me work every single day. You get the package, you get your book and you can read. You can have it on your phone instead of on your computer. So, it’s definitely flexible. The instructors were great, too. I was comfortable and satisfied with the experience I had. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
Happy to hear that, Ayodele. We hope some of your friends join us soon! Best of luck with your future studies.
StraighterLine was good. I finished it exactly how I thought I would.
Great, Alexandria! So happy we could help.
I like the online texts and the flexibility with StraighterLine. I completed the class on my own.
Great to hear, Tatiana!
He was very helpful and polite. He answered my questions very nicely. He made sure that I understood what to do. I was very pleased with how he answered everything completely. I will refer all of my friends to this school. They are all polite and patient with us.
Thanks, Judith! We hope you achieved your goals with us. Best of luck with your future studies!
Everything went well with StraighterLine. I saved time, and it was good. I wanted to finish it in one month, but it took me three months because I had some family issue. They were flexible. Usually, they sent me messages if I needed support. It was very helpful.
Great to hear, Jocy! Hope all is well. Best of luck with your future studies!
I like how easy it was to do classes with StraighterLine.
Happy to hear that, Jacob. Best of luck with your future studies!
StraighterLine's customer service is so much helpful to put you through. Enrollment was good. The customer service gave information on how to go about it and how to register step-by-step.
So happy to hear that, Njideka! We'll pass that along to our Student Support team.
The courses were good. They were well-covered. There was an abundance of information. The StraighterLine team was really good. I had a little bit of an issue with the proctor stuff. But I should have went into more detail when I read it, and taken more time. It's a great kind of do-at-your-own-pace and wherever you need the classwork, it works out very well.
Thanks for the feedback, Gabriel! Best of luck with your future studies.
It was an excellent self-paced course that allowed me to complete other courses online. It will be great to give more discounts to those taking a long time to complete their course. I hope more institutions accept the courses for admission because I had one painful experience from an institution rejecting StraighterLine.
Awesome, Christopher! We wish you the best with your studies.
Straighter Line was so helpful in getting me admitted to WGU! It was convenient and so helpful in helping me get where I needed to be! I highly recommend looking into if your transferring college accepts Straighter Line. You will be so pleased with the amount of classes they have and how they apply to your future degree.
Thanks, Stephanie! So happy to hear that we could help you reach your goals. Best of luck with your future studies!
While it wasn't easy by any means, the hard work paid off when I passed my exams and sliced 6months off my degree.. Make NO mistake, you have to WORK to make the most of these courses, especially if you're balancing family & a job..but I was able to do it on my time.. Definitely use additional resource materials. The more the merrier if it helps you understand the content. Grateful StraighterLine exists as a working adult. Otherwise I couldn't have done it...
So happy to hear that your hard work paid off! Thanks for the review.
Excellent service all around. Would recommend this to anyone who is working and cannot commit to full time study. Very impressed with subject knowledge and learning information provided. Loved how easy it is to organize and sit the proctors exam in my time zone and when I was ready. Having no time restraints in the course was very important.
Great to hear. Thanks for the review, Mark! Best of luck on your future studies!
I like that it's very much at your own pace and you can take as many courses as you want. The proctors in the final exams were very helpful. It's just that sometimes on ProctorU, it takes a minute to log in for your final. Other than that, everything was amazing.
Thanks for the review, Cinthia! Best of luck with your future studies!
It was very easy and very accessible to use. I'm definitely gonna use it again. I really liked the lesson that how you could look it over, and then you could do it at your own pace. You weren't forced or rushed to do anything. But you could get the classes done within two weeks if you like. I would look over each lesson and everything pretty well, and then I would take the quiz. When I came to the final, I looked back over at all my quizzes and tests and crammed it all in.
Happy to hear that you had a positive experience, Logan. Thanks for the review and good luck with the rest of your studies!
I really like StraighterLine. You can work on it as you please and the materials are really easy to understand and go through. It fits to my schedule. But it gets expensive once you don't finish the time that you want to. Other than that, it's doable and it helps that they have promos sometimes.
Great to hear. Thanks, Rea!
There are a ton of courses that they can take at StraighterLine and it's super easy to get started and follow along with. I also liked that everything was in one place. It was easy to find what I needed to do and when I needed to do it. I liked that it was self-paced and that made things a little bit easier. If I ever needed anything, instructor-wise or question-wise, I could always email. I would hear back within the same day or early the next morning, so I never was left hanging.
Awesome, Morgan. So happy to hear that you had a positive experience. Thank you for the review!
