Student & Graduate Reviews

3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

ASU is conveniently located and offers a good diversity of programs. The biggest problem that I have encountered is inability to get necessary information or information that changes frequently.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the graduate programs at ASU is that you are paying state based tuition. However, you're only able to receive one type of graduate student loan unless you apply for a direct plus loan. You have to have excellent credit for this or parents. As a graduate student I cannot apply for the grad plus loans. The only loan I receive is through Salle Mae and is only for $10,500. The pros of the graduate program is that my professors work in my field of study, and give a lot of current information of what is going on in my field. Also, they share their experiences working the types of student I will be working with when I graduate

I have been very pleased with the program so far. I have learned an incredible amount that can be related back to the classroom. I love the versitility of the online program. The online system is easy to use and the proffessors always get back to you in a timely manner.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The education and the students is great but the administration side of the school is not the best. This is not including the Professors, I am referring to the office staff. Most are highly unprepared and seem to not care much what the students would like or what would work best for them. School has been a decent experience so far. It would really help if the Office staff would be more organized.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great program for those already working full time who also want to obtain their graduate degree. The technology is very user friendly. The tech support is available 24/7. Teachers are very accessible through email. The only con is that you don't actually meet your teachers or fellow students face-to-face.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

I honestly feel that I would greatly benefit from a brick and mortar school, however online classes work really well with my busy schedule.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program is inclined to my professional aspirations and very industry oriented. The gap between what I learn and what is needed in real work environment is practically non-existent.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

These are my first graduate courses so right now my expectations are high and unknown. So, far they have been introductory and very interesting. I know that I will learn a lot.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

The School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University offers a great deal of support for working professionals who wish to continue their education. With a combination of online and evening courses, the graduate program allows for great flexibility to ensure you stay on track to complete your degree. The graduate program is located in downtown Phoenix, which allows for diverse networking opportunities.
