Awesome Program from the Non-Traditional Student
I loved the idea that Shorter allowed me the opportunity to obtain my degree in a non-traditional student setting. I decided to complete my degree at long last in my adulthood and there was nothing better than being in an environment with my peers receiving the same education as the traditional younger student. The accelerated program was what I needed in order to complete my course work without taking literally years in which to do. If I had it to do over, I would most definitely choose Shorter University.
Shorter University Professional Program changed my life!
I highly recommend Shorter University to anyone interested in furthering their education. I am part of the Class of 2000, and attending Shorter, receiving my BSBA, has changed my life. Shorter made it possible for me to go to school while working full time. The Professional Program made it possible for me to continue working, raising my daughter, while still receiving the high quality in-class learning experience. The teachers and professors brought reali life experience into the classroom. The study groups taught me how to be part of a team, how to work well with others. Thank you Shorter University!M

Exceptional Program with Proven Results!!!
I highly recommend Shorter University to anyone interested in furthering their education. I am part of the Class of 1995. Attending Shorter, receiving my BSBA, made it possible for me to go to school while working full time. The Professional Program extended an exceptional learning experience. Time constraints, established family, and a full time job were life detemining factors that this program allowed me to embrace, while earning a degree at the same time. The flexibility of the program is unmatched and I am forever grateful for my expereience.
