Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

The curriculum which was created provided an opportunity to challenge me on the levels in which I appeared to be weak. The assignments allowed me to think with a problem solving mentality and yet the instructors were available if and when I needed them. I completed every class knowing I had learned just a little bit more than the previous one and it would all come together with the experience I had already achieved.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I obtained a BSBA in Human Resource Management, online, from Columbia Southern University. I am currently enrolled for their MBA program in Health Care Management. I have studied at brick and mortar schools previously, and I believe that the education I have received at CSU is superior and much more thorough in every way! The school is very flexible with its course, the overall tuition to receive is outstanding and extremely affordable compared to other schools. The administrations, in all departments, are very friendly, thorough, and always ready and willing to assist the student with all their needs. Columbia Southern University is an online school; therefore the only interaction with other students is via Blackboard. However, the experience was pleasant and professional. As online students, the majority of us are adults with full time careers and family responsibilities. They were always many subjects to cover, and many experiences to be shared at CSU, and I would describe all of my classmates as driven and dedicated individuals who shared a common purpose to expand their educational and professional careers; while enriching their personal lives. I tell my friends, and family members for that matter, that Columbia Southern University is an outstanding online school; I can honestly say that I learned more there than at any other school I previously attended; which by the way were traditional brick and mortar. I loved their fast paced, concentrated courses which are conducted in eight week terms; and though not easy, afforded us the ability to study at our own pace (within a certain time-frame). It also provided us with a wealth of knowledge that was not only practical, but applicable in today’s workforce. I truly cannot see and cons for studying at this school. My experience has been truly magnificent!

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

I love the format the online master program provides for me. I could really use a scholarship of some kind as I am already in debt from my undergrad and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for considering me.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

Being that my program is entirely online, I am free to take it at my pace and I don't have to be bothered with going into classes everyday! But because I don't, I also don't have any friends.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

I love attending this school. I have learned so much in the two years that I've been at this school, more so that what I learned at my previous online school. I won't mention any names. The staff is extremely helpful at CSU!
