I know the UIU CEP program is newer than others and not a lot of cohorts have been through it. I am vexxed between chosing which to do. I prefer face to face classes. The hybrid program spends 3-4 hours every other week in the classroom setting while the online program is strictly that.
Can anyone lend their expirence? How did you chose which you would do? I understand that some of the MCCCD campuses nursing schedules don't correlate well with the UIU hybrid program and now limit the hybrid students to Mesa, Scottsdale and, Glendale program only.
I am considering taking PSY230 w/ MCCCD in place of MAT220 w/ UIU for my beginning summer semster. Strictly because once you choose between hybrid or online with UIU you must remain in the specificed program.
For my personal needs, taking Stats ONLINE and in 8 WEEKS is a recipe for disaster. Therefore taking with MCCCD in person in the Spring would be better.
I am not interested in taking the hybrid program w. UIU. I would prefer to do online.... but that Stats would be an issue.
Anyhow, any insight is appreciated.

AZBlueBell, thank you for sharing your experience.
I might choose the hybrid, it just depends on what MCCCD school I am placed at. My first choice is Mes Day (UIU Hybrid compatible), then Mesa Afternoon (mostly UIU Hybrid compatible), and Gateway Day (not Hybrid compatible). Plus I know of students who were offered last minute placements at MCCCD schools that weren't on their list initially. I live in Ahwatukee, so the drive isn't an issue for me. It really comes down to placement, because I really do prefer some in-person class time, plus I'd love to bond with my cohort while there. I KNOW I am going to need buddies!
-Can you explain further how your first online class was so challenging?
-What else did you get out of the in-person class time besides being able to complete assignments?
-Was it lecture heavy? Or more of a time to work on those assignments?
-Are the online discussion questions and responses only for the online students? As a hybrid student did you not have to complete these?
How awesome is it to have MCCCD instructors at UIU!
Thank you for your input. I truly appreciate your perspective!
Hi KittenEars! I saw your previous post about submitting your CEP application to UIU.
If you don't mind answering, when did you end up turning in your CEP application? I know that post was in June or July and I was wondering if you have already been accepted to the UIU program? I'm trying to determine if there is a possibility for me to start before spring semester of next year if I submit my app in May
