Are you thinking about going back to school but aren’t sure how to pick the perfect school for you? We know that finding the right college can be stressful, so we want to help. Consider these four benefits of South College and decide if it’s the right fit for you.
1. Flexible Classes
South College is designed for the non-traditional student. We know that one curriculum does not fit all students’ needs and goals. Because of this, we have shaped our programs to fit a variety of career interests and education levels.
Depending on your courses, you have the opportunity to combine online learning with classroom exercises, getting the best of both class styles. Hybrid programs tend to be particularly popular with students who are also balancing work and family life. South College understands the importance of flexibility.
2. Personal Teaching Style
Unlike many large universities, South College prides itself on a small student to faculty ratio. Smaller classes enable students to build trust with their professors and engage when they have questions. This more personal interaction can be beneficial in helping students better understand the material as well.
In addition several of our programs, such as Business Administration and Health Science, also allow students to blend degrees with specific concentrations. These courses are structured with the intent for students to gain practical, real-life experience in addition to classwork.
3. Financial Support
South College has several programs that lend financial support to students. For example, high school seniors have the opportunity to utilize the Tennessee Promise, which is a scholarship providing up to two years of tuition-free attendance to eligible Tennessee programs.
Since South College is an accredited institution, you also can secure your eligibility for federal financial aid. This, along with other grants and financial aid opportunities, can be a huge deciding factor when choosing which college is right for you.
4. Quarter System
Time is important when you are balancing life as a student. South College operates on a quarter system instead of the semester system, which can help you earn your degree in a shorter amount of time. With a more compact curriculum, you can be on your way to the career path you have been dreaming about even sooner.
These are only a few of the many perks that set South College apart from other more traditional colleges and universities. If you think South College is right for you, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to answer any questions!
