Student & Graduate Reviews

4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I am strictly an online student so couldn't rate the school in its' entirety. I definitely feel the cost is very good in comparison to other graduate programs here in Colorado. My overall experience this far has been pretty positive.
4.14 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The school offers various opportunities for financial aid. Due to the low student to teacher ratio getting help isn't a big issue. The location of the school is beautiful - Mountain ranges and Sand Dunes! Technology use could be improved though it isn't to far behind and student activities definitely need improvement. Transportation could be more accessible. Overall: Good education, the details need to be worked out to better service students.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I love that it is online, and completed in only five semesters. The work load is VERY heavy, however. It's very difficult to take two classes and work full time, which is what all of my cohort is doing. I love how most of my coursework is immediately applicable to what I'm teaching my students in my own classroom.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The online courses can easily fit in to a professional work schedule, and most professors acknowledge that the students are working full-time jobs while attending graduate school.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

This program has helped me to gain an understanding of human nature in order that I may one day help others. This scholarship will greatly help me to pay off my student debt.
4.54 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Adams State University is one of only four CACREP accredited distance Graduate Counseling programs Professors are knowledgeable, available, and current practitioners. Courses are practical, require scholarly research, and provide an exceptional education experience. I highly recommend ASU Counselor Education.
2.68 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I like the convenience of the on line program. I have had medical issues during my studies and it has caused difficulty. At one point the college lost all of my records and I had to resubmit transcripts, letters of recommendation and application. It has at times been frustrating.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016

It is affordable and I have really enjoyed the online classes
3.57 out of 5.0
Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, the school is nice. The graduate program costs more for online classes. There should have been an option to take the cheaper, in-person classes, instead of the sport management degree being all online. The graduate assistant scholarship does not cover all of tuition like promised.
3.36 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I am only in my first year of the program, but I feel that I have learned a lot of information so far. I will be doing my first classes on campus this summer. I am glad that this program exists because I live in rural Colorado and there isn't a school where I live that goes beyond an Associates Degree. With children of my own moving is out of the question for now.
