Student & Graduate Reviews

2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

OK diversity of classes, great camps and classrooms are good, very little guidance for those who are not doing research

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

Applying to Colorado State University was very competitive, but I am so thankful every day that I have chosen this school to receive my Master's degree. The campus and surrounding area is beautiful, and the staff and faculty so far have been extremely helpful with anything I need! My only issue right now is acquiring financial aid to pay for my specific program. All in all, CSU is an amazing school with a great community, and a perfect place for further learning!
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2011

The program is still developing, therefore it is not quite competitive with other major political science programs in the country. However, the faculty are top notch and within a few years I'm sure its reputation will continue to increase as a competitive program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Colorado State University's Pr0fessional MBA Program has amazing support from the advisors, instructors, and tech support. As a distance student on a very different time zone (over 12 hours), they have been very helpful with quick and thorough responses.

Best Value for online Graduate Level Classes
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Great courses and instructors. Facilities could use improvement, and much much construction/change will occur in the near future.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Our program offers Ph.D. students funding and a tuition waver, which is wonderful. The students are very collaborative and supportive, as it is a non-competitive program. The coursework is interesting, relevant and challenging. I do wish our program offered more technological perks (e.g., SPSS, EndNote), as well as more paid applied opportunities, particularly over the summer. The surrounding area, Fort Collins, provides enough culture to satisfy all my city needs (e.g., music, dining, fitness), and the surrounding Rockies are beautiful. There is a lack of diversity in this part of the country, however.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The CSU graduate program operates in a way that gives grad students much freedom in choosing their research and class subjects. Due to this freedom, it is easy to find something you are interested in. In addition, they have one of the leading research groups in alternative fuel vehicles which looks towards the future and working on ways to find solutions to lessening the petroleum demand in the US. The only problem at CSU is that many of the projects work on little funding making it more difficult to complete them. However, as a student, this problem allows us to become more resourceful as engineers.
