Getting Ahead

I lived in Mandan, ND, home of Bismarck State College (BSC), a two-year institution. I was already employed full-time, and my job required out-of-town travel on a regular basis. But by enrolling in Minot Stateís Center for Extended Learning (CEL) program, I was able to earn a bachelorís degree in management via online courses.

Online classes allowed me to gain access 24/7. So I was able to accommodate my job and keep up with my coursework. The instructors were helpful and approachable. They challenged me, which is what I would expect.

Plus, there was a representative on the BSC campus to work withóDe Bergeson. De was always available or returned my calls quickly. She researched questions and served as a go-between when I was unable to connect directly with an instructor. De even helped me get copies of my transcripts.

Recently I was promoted at work. And the reality is I wouldnít have been considered for this promotion if I hadnít been able to complete my bachelorís degree. Minot Stateís CEL program helped make that happen.
