UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA'S REVIEW

Location mainly was close enough to where I live and OU put my application on hold because my GPA wasn't great but they still were going to accept me just didn't accept me until after I already did everything for UCO.


Course Curriculum - 

I don't see why I have to learn basics if it doesn't apply to any of the stuff for my degree. Nothing it's going to do nothing, why not just require the few classes I need like math for accounting.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

A UNIVERSITY WITH GOOD ENVIRONMENT

I learned that they had a really good forensic science program and that made me want to go to this university. This university also was in a great location and also had the best tuition among the other colleges that I had planned to apply to.


Course Curriculum - 

I personally think that the course curriculum is a healthy mixture of practical and non-practical. The curriculum that we have been following also gives us an opportunity to experience the actual work that we might be doing in the future.
