Student Testimonials

'Charter Oak proved to be an outstanding choice. The courses were taught by highly-qualified professionals who held students to high academic standards.'

Lisa Vincent, Charter Oak Graduate

'My degrees open up doors for me professionally, but my education and educational experience with Charter Oak gives me the confidence to walk through those doors and be successful.'

Trudi Lebron, Charter Oak Graduate

'The variety of ways to complete a degree (at Charter Oak) is among industry leaders, if not the best, out there. Being regionally-accredited is a must. It also seemed like every time I called an advisor for help, they either answered my call or called back the same day.'

Dave Peterson, Charter Oak Graduate

'The two primary reasons I chose Charter Oak over other colleges was because of the courses offered and the responsiveness of the staff. Charter Oak was a perfectly sized institution; not so small that course offerings were limited, and not so big that you couldn't talk to a real human being when you called…it is 'right sized,' allowing professors, counselors, and staff to know their students and help them through challenging circumstances.'

Harry Chichester, Charter Oak Graduate
