Student & Graduate Reviews

4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

My major is Special Education, Mild-Moderate Credential and I could not have chosen a better university than APU. The program is competitive and vigorous. I feel that the knowledge and field work received thus far has given me immeasurable experience to prepare me for a successful career upon graduation. There are several regional campuses in various counties which makes it accessible for students who desire to attend on campus classes closer to their homes. My commute is only 15 mins vs 1.5hrs-2hrs if I had to take classes at the main campus. The classroom size are small and personable. The professors are experienced, professional, and passionate about their work. You will have issues along the way, but if you ask and make your needs known, you will get help and the problem will be fixed right away. I'm proud of my decision!

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

There are very few cons for this private Christian university. APU is has a beautiful view of the mountains and many great restaurants and businesses nearby. The campuses are safe and secure which keep your mind at ease. Classes are smaller than other universities attended which provide positive teacher interaction and quality educational time to each individual student. APU has a strong Christian faith and you always feel welcomed by everyone on campus. Their saying, motto, logo, etc. is GOD FIRST.

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!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

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.
