Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I love that this program is online. It allows me to study and complete assignments on my own schedule.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program are that the material is amazing, the faculty members teach it excellently, and I feel completely supported. The cons are that it is a night school program, which can be very tiring, long, and inconvenient.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2013

The best thing about the Physician Assistant studies program is all the interesting information that is presented to students such as pharmacology, pathophysiology, and the ethical situations pertaining to patient-provider relationships.
2.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2012

One of the pros of my program was the amount of financial aid available to students. One of the cons was the lack of involvement by the faculty.
5.0 out of 5.0

Graduation Year: 2015

I have been exceptionally pleased with this graduate program. It is an academically rigorous program that offers lots of experiential and hands-on opportunities for learning.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Very tough but rewarding program. This program has already changed the way I view the world.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The level of faculty support and interest is leaps and bounds better than I experienced during my undergraduate program. The professors I have had to far have been outstanding. There is an emphasis in group related projects however, which can be a danger to your grade if you are placed into an underperforming group.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Excellent professors and well structured program. I'm in the Department of Counselor Education and have found that staff are organized, knowledgable, and oriented towards ethics and informed practice. I appreciate that within this graduate degree program there are two different tracks that you can choose from, and if you're really crazy you can do both.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

I have been in the Advanced Standing MSW program and have enjoyed it very much. There were several pros that included: professor accessibility outside of the classroom, fun learning environment, lesson plans that pertained to the outside world of social work and the small size of the cohort made it a more personal learning experience. The cons would be that it was very fast paced which made it difficult to work during this year, it had a heavy workload since it was only a one-year masters program and it was only over 2 days of the week which made the total hours in the classroom between 6 to 8 hours at a time.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

I am beginning my studies in January 13. I was really impressed when the IPT department chair called me personally to discuss the program.
