Portrait of Tracy Boutot

"I've taken a few courses with CEL, and each prof has a different way of structuring their course, but each is very creative at delivering the material in a fun and engaging way. Learning online gave me the opportunity to manage my work, school, and social life better."

- Tracy B., Open entry credit student
