Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Azusa Pacific University's graduate program is overall very excellent. The faculty are completely amazing and supportive. They are up to date on current research in the field, experienced educators, and always care for their students' success and well-being. The only negative of this program is the cost. If you can afford it, though, this program is one of the best!

Azusa is an awesome school with awesome programs. The Orange County Regional Center is small, has a great staff and faculty, is reasonably priced, and the students who are there want to be there and are great participants. The only negative aspect of the program is that when you need to do your internship hours, you are on your own to find a site. It is manageable, but it would be nice to have a list of sites that students could utilize.

I am about to start the program, so I can not say much about it. But so far it has been a great experience with faculty responding very quickly to any questions I might have for them and assisting me in this of applying to this graduate program.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The online Graduate Educational Leadership Program through Azusa is a great program. There are too many pros to list. I am able to share one challenge and that is not being familiar with the online program that they use. The pro to this is that the staff and the students have been wonderful in guiding me in learning the program so that I am successful.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Azusa Pacific University San Diego Regional Center's MSN-Family NP Program has positive and negative aspects. One of the benefits is that the program enables students to still be able to work full-time while earning their degree. Students are required to take 1-2 classes per semester (depending on the semester) while only attending class 1 or 2 days a week. The school also assists their students with finding placement for clinicals, which is a great burden taken off from the student. The staff have earned their PhD or Doctorates while remaining as practitioners. The negative aspect of the program is that it often takes a few days or numerous e-mails to receive a response from staff. However, this is understandable since they not only teach, but are also working professionals. The San Diego Regional Center also has limited space for students. There is a patio in the second floor but due to building rules, students are not allowed to sit, eat, or congregate in this area.

Azusa Pacific University provides a warm and welcoming environment. The teacher to student ratios all teachers to fully invest in the learning of the students. However the cost for enrolling at APU is steep due to it being a private university.
