Student & Graduate Reviews

3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I loved CSC. The class sizes were small and the professors were very helpful.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA in Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2019

Only a semester into the program and the curriculum is rigorous but the professors are readily available to help and transparent in their lessons. It allows me to be a full time employee while obtaining an education at a reasonable price and the place is military friendly.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

The graduate program that I am in is School Counseling, and has several different classes that I am taking that make this program worthwhile. I have only taken a few courses in the Graduate Studies, but have done all of my Bachelor's Degree at this school. The school setting is secure and the staff are willing to help the students. The way that the classes are set up are extremely easy to access along with following them throughout the year. I am looking forward to completing my Graduate Program through Chadron State College.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

I am a new student with Chadron State College but I am excited with the opportunity to learn an grow with the community. I am a veteran and the financial aid that the college offers exceeds expectations. From day one, I have had a huge network of support; not just from admissions but from each department.

Essentially the program is in an independent study format. Each class has webpage for homework submissions quiz/test taking. There are no lectures (typical content consists of PowerPoint presentations taken from the "extra content" of the reading materials) or interaction with your instructor other than by email. For someone who's used to a traditional setting, this format is really tough. The use of pre-recorded video lectures would be very helpful in bridging the gap from a traditional classroom to a virtual learning environment, enhance the learning experience by hearing real-world examples/experience from the Instructor, and provide an opportunity to get a feel of what the Instructor's looking for in terms of assignments.. All assignments/forum requirements/group work/term papers, along with due dates, are posted on Day 1 of class, so there's no reason anyone has for missing a due date (there are no surprises). To avoid the hassle of trying to form a virtual team, teams are assigned by the instructor and known on Day 1. There is a lot of busy work in the realm of forum posts and comment requirements, but all are relevant to the course content. Assignments are graded and returned within 7 days. Group projects/Term Papers usually take 14-16 days. So far, the grading system is extremely fair, and Instructors are very responsive when grading questions are asked. The school is regionally accredited. Its MBA program holds an ACBSP accreditation, and is very affordable (Total costs, including books, will run about $12,000).

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2018

Chadron State's greatest qualities are its value, faculty, and the quality of education. I really believe I was prepared for my future by Chadron State. They have a low-cost, but extremely high quality program with a supportive faculty. I am in secondary education, which means that my professors, even more than other professions, are mentors and people I seek to emulate. The examples, I was shown at Chadron State will be invaluable as I continue my career. The downside to Chadron State would probably reflect in a lack of academic competitiveness between the students and a lack of name value. The Chadron State brand does not carry the same weight as other institutions, which comes with the cost. Also, because of the cost of the education, it might attract a lower level of student, but that comes with the cost.

It's very affordable and I love that I can do it all online.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

This is the most affordable accredited program that I have found. It really combines the advantages of a small school with the flexibility of a bigger online university. The drawback is that the online interface for students is a bit cumbersome, but it's workable.
