I have taken many courses through Longwood's Online Prerequisite program. I live in a rural area and love the convenience, flexibility, and accessibility of this program. In addition to taking courses, I have juggled the roles of parent, student, and employee. Taking two courses online along with other responsibilities was a full load. Completing the requirements of the online courses was challenging, yet manageable. The instructors and technical support staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and cognizant of the needs of online learners. I highly recommend Longwood's online program.

I am very much enjoying the online SLP prerequisite courses through Longwood. I feel the classes will give me a strong background in the field and prepare me to enter a graduate program. The instructors have been wonderful and very responsive. Since I had never taken an online course before, I had doubts about succeeding. The coursework and directions have all been presented very clearly and are helping me be successful. I look forward to future classes and continuing to learn online.

This remarkable array of courses is unique to Longwood University. The students support one another in their endeavors.
