Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently enrolled in the Marriage and Family Therapy graduate program at Azusa Pacific University. I researched several school for months before I decided on this school and program. This school is faith-based, and the faculty advisors, both student and professional, were great! They were able to answer all my questions, direct me to great resources, and were affordable compared to other private schools.

Azusa Pacific University's slogan is: "God First." When Jesus (my/our God and Savior) is sought first, everything else falls into place. Azusa Pacific University prepares students to get a great career. I was able to apply the education that I received at Azusa Pacific University. I would highly recommend Azusa Pacific University, a wonderful Christian college, to anyone and everyone!

This program is excellent and has given their students the best education possible along with the best projection to success. It is absolutely incredible how the program is geared to making you succeed after the program not only through it.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I believe that APU is an excellent school. It has great standards for students. The professors are very helpful and always available for any questions or concerns. The only con for me specifically, is that I am a single mother, therefore, all tuition cost and books are a real burden.

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2018

The school makes it very easy to work with students and teachers, staff is very friendly and helpful. Cons are how expensive it is because it is a private school
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

I felt the Master's of Science in Information Technology was a degree that was very valuable for my career. It provided a foundation for in which I quickly advanced. I enjoyed the students in the program; they were all very bright and professionally as well as ethnically diverse. I also felt the cost of the degree was reasonably priced. The cons to this degree was that some of the courses were not valuable and the professors did not always seem engaged. At times the workload was unreasonable and the material was very difficult. The area in which the school is located was unsafe in general. I would not recommend walking in Azusa. The size of the Computer Science department was very small and the opportunities for Computer Science and Information Technology majors were extremely limited. Despite these cons I overall feel this was an adequate program for my needs.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of this school is they offer courses at three locations and the program is designed for students whom already have jobs/careers so we are able to still work and attend classes in the evening. The instructors are great and for my personal preference it is a relion based school. The cons, the program is on a quarter system. I came from a school where courses were 18 weeks long so at first 9 week sessions were fast with a lot of homework but I was able to adapt. Another con is the expense of grad program.

I wouldn't have gone to any other school for the quality of education and the experience.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

The pro of attending a private school is the advantage of small classrooms and more one-on-one attention from professors. This increases the quality of education because it allows for more opportunities to ask questions. The con to a small private school is definitely the cost and lack of financial aid.
2.17 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

While the various regional centers make obtaining an education more convenient and accessible, the cost of attendance and the living expenses in the surrounding areas can hinder one's ability to succeed. There is limited financial aid in terms of grants and scholarships offered to graduate students unlike other private institutions and state schools in the area. Faculty are kind and available for their students, and they are also experts in their fields who can draw from various real-world experiences to add to the classroom learning.
