Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The admissions department was friendly and welcoming. They answered all my questions and were easy to contact (either via telephone or email). I was updated about my application status. I was also informed on how financial aid can look like, course and schedule structure. All before I was accepted! Their insight and willingness to ensure I was prepared made my decision easy.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently enrolled in an online graduate program at Adler University. The school is outstanding in every aspect. All of the staff and offices have been extremely helpful: professors and instructors, financial aid office, IT support, library services, Registrar's office, and even the person who helped register me and coached me through all the necessary steps to get enrolled. The courses are also superb! Course information, resources, and assignments build on the previous courses and provide a thorough and in-depth understanding of the topics while providing real life connections and applicability. The courses are rigorous and demanding but in an excellent and professional manner that supports participatory learning. I am truly impressed with Adler University and am so pleased that I chose this school for Nonprofit Management. It has been an outstanding experience and the knowledge gained has been invaluable.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The online Military Psychology program at Adler University includes a well-rounded course curriculum that is really preparing me for my future career as a military psychologist. The faculty are all experienced in the field, and are very helpful in offering constructive feedback on assignments, and bringing personal experience to the class which the students can learn from. The school offers several avenues for students to get support, even though I am taking my classes online and never actually interact in person with my classmates, I never feel alone! There is always someone available to answer questions and it feels like I'm in a real classroom at times. I have even become friends with several of my long distance classmates, as they really encourage everyone to get to know each other. It's great!

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2021

I love my school! Adler provides a safe space to learn and grow as students. The school promotes social justice. It was the main reason I attended. Not only is social justice promoted but it is demonstrated in each and every faculty member I have interacted with, as well as found in each student. The university promotes a feeling of security and provides the tools to change the world. Each week there is a community hour that allows the students to learn about a new topic. Each community hour is usually associated or connected to a social justice engagement. My favorite part is the Social Justice Practicum we complete. Every student completing a PsyD in Clinical Psychology must complete a practicum, or externship, to become a Clinical Psychologist. However, what is unique to Adler is that we have the opportunity to complete a practicum that allows us to give back to the community and the world around us. I believe that it is always important to be socially active and to stand up for what you feel is just and right. By attending Adler University, I can both stand up for what I believe in on a daily basis, and I can pursue my dream of becoming a Clinical Psychologist. I would not dream of attending any other university. They are highly recommended and a perfect fit for me!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I attend Adler University and I am working to receive my masters in counseling specializing in sports and health. The program that I am a part of has given me the opportunity to work with all different types of people in unique settings. In addition to your course work during the first year the students take part in a social justice practicum. This opportunity allows one to work in the community and advocate for social justice. The second year of the program continues to help develop the students as well rounded counselors by providing course work, clinical internship, and a sport psychology consultant externship. I highly recommend this school if you are looking for a program that treats you like a person and not just another student! If you would like to further your knowledge in social justice and enjoy city living, Adler University is for you!

This is a unique campus, it is located on the 16th floor of a Chicago high rise with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Another aspect of this university is its dedication to social justice and community outreach. If you are wanting to make an impact on people's lives and receive a multicultural educational experience than Adler is the place for you!

Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Even though I am just beginning my Master's degree in Military Psychology online with Adler University, I am honored to be a part of such a great school. Adler University is very well known for rearing Advocates for Social and Government change. It is through Adler university that voices can be heard speaking out against adversity and life's challenges that go unnoticed. Students of all ages that are attending Adler University or want to attend Adler University will be challenged and pushed towards making such necessary changes for our fellow man and our world. I am so honored to be working towards my Masters in Military Psychology which is taught by some of the most experienced and greatest minds of this field of study. At Adler we are not only working towards our purposes, fighting against all kinds of adversities but we are becoming a loud booming voice for the voiceless. Through furthering our education and using our inner strength we can change and overcome seemingly impossible struggles and obstacles for every man, woman and child. Begin not only your career at Adler, but help impact the world and give hope to the people who need it the most. Change is possible with Adler University.

Degree: Emergency Management
Graduation Year: 2018

Adler University is a diverse university. It provided valuable information towards my Master's Degree in Emergency Management. Enrollment was not difficult, and the school provided me with a counselor that assisted me in every step. Before my classes started, I took an orientation which explained how to navigate through all avenues of the on-line courses. Once my class started, I was provided a class mentor who I could go to with any questions I had about the class or school. Adler University offers a subscription to grammarly.com, mental health counseling, writing support, unlimited use of their on-line library. They have reasonably priced books in their bookstore where you have the option to rent or buy a hardcopy or digital books. The professors provide guidance and a list of references used within the course and are available via email or phone for any questions. Adler University provided me an excellent avenue to start my secondary degree and has been nothing but helpful along the way.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Adler University online programs offer the opportunity to pursue a graduate degree in a time frame that is suited to your career and family life. Because the technology is advanced, and instructors utilize the most current available methods, you do not feel that you are in the typical online program! Every person associated with my program from financial aid to instructors, has been supportive and helpful every step of the way. I have always received a response to questions within 24 hours, and the level of communication Adler is committed to is phenomenal. I would definitely suggest Adler's online degrees to anyone who wishes to pursue their graduate degree, but is concerned with the time it may take to obtain!

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

Adler University is great but would benefit from more diversity. The staff, faculty and students of color have the burden of teaching others about what diversity means, and that can be stressful. The majority population needs to take more stock in diversity as this directly affects the mission of social justice.
