Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

Online programs can be tough. My life got bumpy and has extended my time at CSU; but my experience of the program has been very good. I have learned much from the experience! The professors have varied in style and passion; but all of the profs have been knowledgeable. Overall, I rate the program 4.5 out of 5.

California Southern University offers a great opportunity to aspiring students to test their hunger for knowledge and aptitude and to thrive for a higher degree. I am enrolled in the DBA program and am on course to completing my graduation in next 4 to 5 quarters. Great mentors, great course materials, and great administration. // Asif

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2020

I am currently in my first year in the DBA program at California Southern University. This online program really caters to the working professional. The curriculum is very well defined and all instructors are of great help. The administration and faculty have been very helpful in guiding me along the way and preparing me for the final doctoral project. The cost is very manageable and they even have a monthly payment plan available. The school is also regionally accredited by WASC. I would recommend this program to anyone.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The DBA program at Cal Southern can be challenging given the recent program changes. The first three years are entirely course work with the final year and a half allocated for a project. The project can halt progress in degree completion as it is very different from the first three years. Good mentors can be available but it depends upon their schedules.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

The work load is demanding yet manageable while working full time and raising children. The mentors are very supportive and responsive. I have been able to network with students all over the world which makes learning diverse and fun. I am very happy with my choice to continue my education with Cal Southern.
