Student & Graduate Reviews

2.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2011

I think that parts of the education were fine, but I went straight into an MBA program without any meaningful work experience. Without the work experience, I think that I did not value what I was learning to the degree that was necessary, and in many ways it ended up being a waste. I wish I would have appreciated the lessons more, read more of my books and been a better student rather than worrying about grades.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

My experiences mostly come from my specific graduate program. I did not feel very connected to my school as a graduate student. I felt that there were more opportunities for undergraduates but also that the campus has a "party" culture. I felt that I received a good education and was prepared for the workforce.

Quality, affordable education. CMU has many resources for students to use. The class list has been developed very well allowing you to get all the classes you need when you need them. there are many opportunities at CMU even though it is in a small town.

Central Michigan University has demonstrated the highest level of commitment for military university. As an active duty Coast Guardsman on random patrols at sea, Central Michigan University has helped with admissions, tuition and degree plan. The university's professors have took time to fully explain courses and help students succeed.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended Central Michigan University. I received a Master's in Educational Technology. I absolutely loved the program. I learned so very much about using technology in the classroom. This was an excellent experience. The entire program was online. The professors were very knowledgeable and used the online courses effectively. Even though it was completely online there were opportunities to learn from others with discussion boards and evaluating each others' work. I strongly recommend Central Michigan University.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

My program did a great job of preparing students to enter the work force in the engineering field. Many of the professors had connections to companies throughout the state and brought in employers for career fairs and project sponsorships. The professors did a great job tailoring the curriculum to make sure the skills you require to enter the work force were taught. The campus overall was well run and provided many opportunities to students such as career events, career services, advising, and mock interviews. I enjoyed studying at Central Michigan University so much that I am pursing my masters degrees there.

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty are very helpful with accommodating our personal schedules as well as helping with any course work we may have questions on. They are all easy to approach and listen with an empathetic ear. However, they do take the flexible schedule to a whole other level when they require us to take out of class time to take exams. This can be frustrating at times especially if you are working or have other commitments outside of school.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2016

CMU's MBA program is filled with professors and faculty who genuinely care about students and are successful in the fields that they teach. They bring their experiences into the classroom to improve the course of study. If I had a concern it is that some classes, i.e. FIN classes, are not always available in a timely manner.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: Professors are very willing to meet with classes outside of class time to discuss material. Cost of living in the area is relatively low. Many outdoorsy activities in the area. The program emphasizes working in groups and becoming close with classmates. Cons: Not too many things to do in the surrounding area. Close knit faculty makes it difficult to bring up issues with classes.
