“Choosing Northeastern CPS to complete my Bachelor's degree was the best decision I have made in my life so far. The flexibility of the online option has allowed me to embrace being able to work and go to school. My professors are so passionate about what they teach, which can be hard to find sometimes in online classes. I love how involved everyone is.”
