Many of the locations are near public transportation routes. Altierus maintains a list of nearby daycare facilities so that parents do not have to worry about their children during class time. Class scheduling is flexible, with some courses available on nights and weekends. Altierus also has an active career planning and placement services department which is available to all students. Of course, online students may take the classes at their own convenience.
