I am considering the WCU Hyg program. Any student reviews would be appreciated. posted Jan 13th, 2010 2:18 pm


Thumbs Up

i plan on attending this school. knowing it received this review makes me feel a bit better about it. another thing i would add to the cons, is the price of the programs. they are very expensive, but you can't really complain when you finish school sooner than most with a DEGREE, not a certificate. posted Dec 8th, 2009 11:14 pm
