I attend UIU. You are able to use your Pell grant and UIU does use the consortium agreement. I cannot speak to the comparison with ASU, but I really like UIU. Like most of the other schools, the terms are 8 weeks each, so you only take 1 class at a time. There is a little busy work, but the courses are not overly difficult. Most of your stress and frustration will come from your community college nursing classes. All the hard work will be worth it in the end......at least that is what I keep telling myself! I feel like the UIU program is a bit smaller and I feel I get more attention than I would in a larger program. Everyone is very attentive and helpful. Good luck!!
