I love my online experience with Grace Christian University!! My classes and instructors are the best. I’m in my eighth course. This is the furthest that I have gone in online classes because I am taking classes that I actually need. I get frustrated sometimes, but my instructors and academic counselors are very helpful and supporting. Loving it!!!
