Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Adult-Gerontology Primary Care)
Graduation Year: 2019

I had my Bachelors in nursing at Concordia University Wisconsin. A private Lutheran College that is Christ centered. Everyone treated me with respect as an adult, African American male student in a female dominated profession. Professors are always willing to work with me and answer most of my questions. Hence, I graduated with my BSN in 2012 and have enrolled for my master's degree in 2016 to obtain my nurse practitioner license in the same school. I will be graduating in December 2019. I recommend Concordia University if you are looking for a good University to go to and also their tuition is reasonable.

Graduation Year: 2011

The school schedule was very accommodating to working adults having classes one day a week and still be able to graduate in 2 years.

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2018

Concordia is a wonderful school and makes you feel as if you are at home. The small class sizes is a great way to get to know your professor and get the help you need from your professors. Concordia is a beautiful campus with a 1 mile radius. It is connected entirely with tunnels so during the long winter months in Wisconsin you don't have to walk outside.

Degree: MBA in International Business
Graduation Year: 2018

My higher education experience isn't one of your average college student. I have been able to study in Europe (Spain and France) and just recently got back from an internship in Costa Rica - que chiva, verdad?! I have also been blessed with the opportunity to hold many leadership positions on campus that I have been able to gain lifelong connections and skills from. I am happy to say that my education has fully prepared me for the full-time position as an international tax analyst that I was offered upon graduation!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Concordia University Wisconsin sits on the cliffs overseeing beautiful Lake Michigan. The opportunities provide by the university is a vast as the lake itself. Located not too far from two major cities (Milwaukee and Chicago), CUW provides students with the opportunities to learn in person, online, and in blended format which is perfect for working adults looking to advance in their career. Take a stroll on the winding path from the bluffs down to the lake.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013

Concordia University Wisconsin I hold near and dear to my heart. Not only did I attend for my four year undergraduate Bachelor's of Science in Nursing degree (for which is was on campus for), but I had such an amazing experience that I chose to attend online for my Master's of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner degree as well (which is online). Also, I plan to continue on to obtain my Doctorate of Nursing degree at the same institution. Concordia is truly one of a kind and I can not express how well the School of Nursing prepared me for my future in health care. The professors are so passionate about the success of their students...both in classroom and online. They truly go above and beyond to make themselves available to students to discuss any concerns and answer any questions. Additionally, the sense of community and support from the school is incredible. I can honestly say that this institution has directly impacted my confidence, preparedness for my career, and overall success in my future. I would highly encourage anyone to look into the programs at Concordia...either on campus or online, because it is truly an institution that stands apart from the rest.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

Concordia University Wisconsin has one of the best Educational Technology and Instruction programs around. The course professors and program councilors help the students and offer guidance at every turn. The program director and professors are professionals in their fields. They write for and speak in front of national audiences as well as teach in their own classrooms. They understand teachers because they are in the trenches with us.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

I obtained my undergrad from another physical institution but through their online program. The welcome, direction, attentiveness, and information given prior to admission was more effective in the short period of time than my entire undergrad career. The cons are that any online program takes dedication, time management, and a lot of study time spent alone.

Graduation Year: 2018

The faculty at Concordia University Wisconsin truly invests their time and energy into their students, not only developing strong clinicians but also good people.
2.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: - Some of the staff go above and beyond to support students. - Some staff members are very encouraging and are sure to provide positive feedback to students, in addition to constructive criticism. - The online journal databases from the library provide a wide variety of resources when doing research. - The library offers free book rental by mail to online students who are not able to access the library resources. - The classes are run through Blackboard, which has an app and can be accessed from your cell phone. Cons: - Costly - Seemingly unnecessary classes have been added to extend the length of programs - these classes feel like a complete repeat of previous classes taken. - financial aid is only available to grad students in the form of student loans. They do not provide grants to grad students. - inconsistency within the program - difficult to get a true answer to questions regarding curriculum and standards based on AOTA guidelines. -Length of the program is excessive for those completing only a master's degree when compared to other programs and AOTA guidelines. Those completing both a master's and bachelor's are only required to go for 1 year longer at the minimum to be considered full-time (12 credit hours for 2 semesters, 6 credit hours in summer). Their courses for the bachelor's portion are online only. - Program director and some other staff are very slow to respond when needed.
