If the students graduate then its fine. It is not like a university where the english teacher is a BA/Business Admin. Then we found the teacher does only 3 classes at 1 hour each, so where is the teacher the other hours as in 8 hours - 3 hours, or 5 hours of work? Some are honest, but really a Physics teacher thats really a BA/Management? And as told you get what you pay for its a public university thats semi-private, but really a incorpated but part-government control??

I remember the listing of classes in a university, the teacher only teaches 1 subject, and there are 2 of them. This is upper division, where out of 40 standing room students only 8 remain. So the idea was to push the other students out, who passed. Why? Because the person's a grand parent, married person, single person trying to earn a living by working in a different job than what they have learned when they were under 22.

Again as told by the math teacher,
1. Use any form of math to solve the problem.
2. Do not use math information prior to this math class.
3. Bring physical proof if needed to solve the math problem to class.
4. The state law book does not count in solving the math problem.'How many different parking slots are there?'
5. The teacher already said the science class really needs two semesters of calculus, and it was another calculus book.

I remember volunteering for 1 week of classes registeration helper. none of us that volunteered got the classes we requested in the university.
there was no 'fine print' on the form, it was added after we asked, i was there with another student. I remember waiting outside the door of the dept advisor for 50 minutes,'the office hours were 1 year ago','the person does not have the current semester catalog','other advise quit your job, after being told to GROW UP BUT NO_NO on over 18 material'.
Oh I remember the student asked 'I have a date tomorrow can I turn in late homework?'.
