"I was a former UNK student that had never finished my degree and was looking for an option to finish that goal I had set so many years ago. I am so thankful that UNK offers the online program and was able to guide me back into college life with such ease. My advisor was invested in my education and helping me find the path to reach my goals. The best part was the support I have received at UNK. "
