  • This is very bad university for learning distance, please do not take apply for any distance courses . requested to SMU please closed this SMU for out of state education.
  • This the worst distance learning university, They will do all short of things to take more money from students. They will fail you even if your exams went well, and through resitting and rechecking they will earn money. pathetic. Think twice before enrolling into it. Very bad experience.
