Be the First
I looked into BVU because my supervisor suggested it, and I discovered that I could get my entire degree online. I liked that I could do it all on my own time. I was the first one in my family to graduate high school and the only one that has gone to college, so it was an accomplishment for me.
Connected Community, Strong Support

I’m having the same experience I did as an undergraduate through BVU - I continue to work at my job while getting the support I need from all my BVU instructors. It is so easy to email, text, or call my professors as I continue to learn.
