Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I am a current online MS Psychology student at Arizona State University. Although I am new to the program, I felt compelled to write this review because I wish someone else had written it for me to read. I spent almost two years trying to decide what graduate program was right for me. I had many hesitations because I have not been in school for a few years, I had financial fears, and I felt like I was not experienced enough to be accepted. Finally, I gained the courage to apply to Arizona State University. It was a financially sound decision, the program description met my expectations, and the ability to complete it online fit my lifestyle perfectly. My first class is Professional Issues in Psychology. This is the only class I have taken so far, but it has already changed my life. I know that it may sound dramatic, but it has. Not only is the professor great, but the class addresses every insecurity I have about the MS program, potentially starting a PhD program, and a career in Psychology. To have those fears addressed immediately is priceless, in my opinion. If I had chosen a different program, and it did not have a class like this, I can tell you that my future may not be the same. I have already narrowed down PhD programs that I am interested in, joined professional associations, and expanded my network. As far as the online learning environment goes, everything is very open and organized. I can communicate freely with the professor, TA, and other students. Even if you have never done online learning, it is a very easy set up! The due dates are reasonable, and all the information is worthwhile. I highly recommend this program. Lastly, I will talk about my only bad experience. I saved this for last, because I do not want anyone to see this as a reason to avoid this program. I truthfully wouldn't have even written this piece, if I didn't think it could help someone else. When you first begin the application process, you are matched with an enrollment advisor. They will call you and ask what questions you have, give you information about the program, and send you an e-mail with all the information provided. My advisor sent me an e-mail with the application deadline and other information. I attempted to submit my application almost a month before the due date I was given, and was informed that I owe a $50 late fee. I reached out to my advisor, and they suggested I call tech support. Before I could do so, I received an e-mail from my advisor stating that there was a mistake, he gave me the wrong due date, and that I do owe a late fee. I sent an e-mail and attached a screen shot of the date I was given, and stated that I shouldn't have to pay based on their error. I was simply given an apology for any inconvenience this fee may cost. There was no responsibility taken for the error, and I ended up having to pay $120 to submit my application. As irritating as that experience was, it is avoidable. Please, just remember to double check all the information you are given. Do not let this deter you from choosing this great program.

Degree: Technology Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I've attended Arizona State University (ASU) for the majority of my undergraduate degree, and was impressed with the quality and content so much so that I am currently attending ASU for a Masters of Science in Global Technology and Development. My first one and half years of undergraduate school I attended Northern Arizona University and it paled in comparison to ASU. My student status at ASU is an online student, which had filled me with anxiety upon my acceptance into graduate school. Graduate school is the perfect opportunity to network and expand educational understanding and experience. How was I going to accomplish this from the desk in my living room? My worries were put to rest shortly after my acceptance to the graduate program. The resources for online students is astounding. A few examples of the utilization of technology for inclusion would be the ASU Online Facebook group invite I received. The invite provided me with a platform to engage with other students, whom also receive schooling via online. Collaboration, suggestions, and input from ASU staff and fellow students all occurred in a relaxed environment. I like to compare this to the conversations many students get to experience on campus before and between classes. In addition, I am provided with live stream events that relate do my degree and passions. ASU will host online webinars for networking and academic resourcing such as resume building sessions. One of the most exciting and progressive aspects of ASU is the student organizations and their inclusion of online students. There is a list of clubs that are applicable to online student attendance. This actually inspired me to create my own student organization, Global Public Health Brigades. The club I started, along with many others through ASU, live stream organization events and meetings and allow international volunteer work/trips to apply to online students regardless of their physical location. ASU is expanding their student base without sacrificing quality and student involvement opportunities. I could not be more ecstatic to be at the forefront of the technological advances that are integrating their way into education.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2019

ASU stands for innovation, education, and knowledge. I have been here for the last 5 years and have experienced great levels of student initiative, change and growth. ASU offers the ability to grow alongside your professors, and allows for experimentation and research found no where else. You get the hands on, one on one experience along with amazing classes, interesting curriculum.

Degree: Aerospace Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

This is my first year studying in ASU. I am very exciting about the campus life and my degree program here. I am aerospace engineering (MS) student and need to take two math for my program. "Partial Differential Equation" and "Linear Algebra " are the courses I taking. Although I already learned them in my college, I still feel the difference between in here and in my hometown. The content of those two courses is more difficult and broader than I assume and it make me need to use a totally different mind to understand the same theory. That is why I think there is a place worth studying!

School is ok overall. The classes are the right size, the materials or content covered is for the most part up to date. The professors are not as good as other universities.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

College should be to help your future- pick classes you're interested in as you will be more motivated to attend and to put the work in. If you're a more independent learning, go the online route.
