Hello! I would like your opinion about my situation with Troy University. This is what happened: I was interested in Troy's distance learning program in International Relations. I talked to a few professors letting them know that I lived in Canada. I sent in my application but somehow it seemed to get stalled for a while. Somebody was supposed to contact me but they never did. After some time, I email them again wondering what had happened. They tell me that my application has been passed on to another admissions person. This new person tells me that I am not a U.S. citizen and therefore I am not eligible to enroll in their distance learning IR program. I was surprised to hear this, and this is what I wrote to them: "Hello xxxx I received an email a while back from one of the instructors in this program telling me there were some students from Canada taking this program. I had also contacted Dr. xxxxx, who knew that I was interested in taking the distance learning MSIR program from Canada. I believe he is from Canada as well, and we even talked (over the phone) about the program during one of his visits to Canada. Furthermore, in my application there is clear indication of my country of residence. In any case I don't want to cause too much trouble. However, not admitting non U.S applicants to an online program seems odd, and I believe, defeats the purpose of distance learning. Fortunately there are other alternatives. Thanks for looking at my file" After this, they tell me that my application had been accepted and that I have to pay the application fee and submit my transcript! well, I hope I didn't bore you with this long story. I just wanted to know what you all thought of this situation. Thanks!
