Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I started my MSW journey in a traditional evening class setting, however after I received a fulltime job offer, this was no longer an option. After taking a semester off and doing research on graduate programs I applied to ASUs online MSW program. I think this was one of my best academic choices I have ever made. ASUs online MSW program has allowed me to obtain a high-quality education while working in my field full time. Each week students are required to complete readings and assignments but are able to complete them on their own time. That means if you are an early bird, you can wake up at dawn and complete them. If you are a night owl, stay up all night and chip away at your readings! I have made quality connections with classmates, instructors, and feel prepared to be a master level social worker. During my time in this program I learned that my husband was getting new military orders and that we would be moving before I was able to complete my degree. ASU was willing to work with me and make my education possible despite making a cross country move. This would not have been an option in my previous MSW program, and I am so thankful for the support ASU provided me. I would recommend ASUs online program to anybody who is looking for a high-quality education that allows flexibility. It is perfect for those who work, parents, military spouses, or those who just need a little bit more flexibility!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2020

I decided to go back to school as part of a career change. I live in Phoenix and first considered ASU just because it's the local University, but as I researched programs and compared them with other institutions, I realized ASU is very well ranked. I was impressed with the quality and experience of the faculty members, most of them have careers spanning the private and public sectors with a distinguished amount of research and publications under their belts. I am now in my first semester, and I am impressed with my Professors and the rigorous academics. The masters in Public Policy is also very flexible, there is a significant number of electives to choose from, and some classes are even offered during the summer, online or intensive formats. I am counting on ASU and the many resources available to students to help me forge a new path in my professional career.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2020

The W.P. Carey School of Business at ASU has been fantastic with their communication. I am an online student and I have never worried that I would not receive responses in time to submit my assignments. They were also very flexible for military which was a huge help!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I would highly recommend Arizona State for an online masters program. My classes were manageable while working a full time job. The classes are straight forward, accelerated but easy to manage, and the co-instructors are knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The counselors are also highly attentive and made me feel extremely supported and valued. Arizona State University is truly amazing!

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

Arizona State University's online Master of Business Administration program at the W.P Carey School of Business is a phenomenal program that prepares the individual well for the future, regardless of the amount of previous experience. Being able to collaborate with other students from different backgrounds and with different strengths has opened my eyes to other opportunities for growth. Groups are of 4 or 5 students from all professional backgrounds that work together throughout the entire program. By developing close relationships with each member, it is great to learn new work and communication styles while learning from each other and building off of each others strengths. This program has taught me a lot about who I am as a student, what motivates me, and how I can apply all this information to my professional career. The academic support from program managers and instructors is incredible. By networking with individuals around the country, this program allows a broader perspective and application of the information.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

I transferred to Arizona State after a family emergency left me relocating from Florida to North Carolina, where my former MSW program would not accept my NC residency for the program. ASU's MSW was willing to consider accepting more graduate transfer credits than most (30 hours) and that highly influenced my decision. The program academics have been thorough and rigorous so far, however they ended up only accepting 21 of my 34 transfer credits which really set me back. Also, though they have a large online contingent, they did not offer any online classes during the summer which would help me advance my degree, ultimately requiring me to sit out a semester and double up during the Fall and Spring. That was a bit of a let down as well. In the end, however, ASU helped me keep my goal of obtaining an MSW alive despite personal obstacles and for that I am grateful.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

The ASU online MBA program through the W.P. Carey School of Business is exemplary. From application to orientation, the program managers were helpful and honest with me. The online program is easy to work with and transparent with expectations. The on-campus orientation is helpful as well to a successful integration into the program. The classes are sufficiently challenging and the professor support is ample. I am frequently recommending this program to my friends and acquaintances.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

My time at Arizona State University has been a great learning experience, which has correlated with substantial professional growth. Arizona State Universities dynamic online teaching program enables the learner to interact with the learning materials in a progressive way, which prepares the learner for practical experiences in the work environment. In addition, the University has offered assistance in financial planning and also provides routine reminders, in the form of emails, of various ways students can acquire financial-aid. As a result of attending Arizona State University my earning potential has been influenced in a positive way because I have developed new skills, which others may not have not had the opportunity to develop.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2019

I have really enjoyed my degree program through ASU online studies because of the accessibility of the program. I am able to work and take my courses at the same time. I receive a lot of guidance and assistance from ASU teachers to ensure that I remain on track with my studies and meet my deadlines. I have also greatly enjoyed the community that has been built even with an online program. Being able to meet online with fellow students really helped me feel a part of the campus and provided me with another way to seek assistance.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I am currently a student at Arizona State University in their grad program, online. I was afraid to attend college for grad school as I work full time, worried I would not be able to keep up, worried about funding, etc. I contacted ASU, as this is the college my daughter graduated from. I would recommend this college, as they guide you through the process of enrollment, as well as supply you with success coaches, online tutoring, along with easy access to instructors to create a positive learning environment. There are many online programs which collect money without creating a program that has the integrity of Arizona State University. If you want an easy program where you can pass with ease this is not the program for you. If you want a program that provides the rigorous education where you learn the skills to prepare you for the field you have chosen, then Arizona State University is the place you want to be. I know I will be prepared for my profession upon graduating.
