Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

My program and the coursework will prepare me for my future endeavors, however the facilities available are less to be desired; bathrooms are always missing toilet paper, paper towels, or soap, there is an inadequate library space for the number of programs and students around finals time, lecture halls and one library floor is uncomfortably cold while another library floor can be stuffy and hot. Though these may seem like trivial problems, compounded together they are frustrating to the students who spend around 8+ hours a day in the building. On a positive note, I am satisfied overall with the quality of education and the instructors.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

It's a lot of work but a good program. Tuition discounts are available if you work for a participating employer which includes just about everywhere a nurse could work. I haven't had much luck with career guidance and my advisor is not very good either. The instructors have been fair for the most part and many of them are quick to respond to any questions via email. Administrators, course chairs, and directors seem to give a genuine interest in the quality of the program and seek to make changes.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

As an online student I am not familiar with some of these areas but based on the emails I get from the school, I feel confident in my ratings. The program that I am in at Drexel is the only program that I found that meets all of my needs for my career goals. I have been extremely happy with the academic support and accessibility that I have received from the staff. They have not only worked with me to accommodate my situation but they have helped to achieve my goals.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2010

The Higher Ed program (MS) is offered fully online, making it very accessible. While Drexel is primarily known as a technology and engineering school, there are a number of knowledgeable and approachable professors in the program, two of whom I've been able to talk with about career opportunities. I have a small complaint that there is some redundancy in the coursework, but one of the signature benefits is the ability to design a co-op (including at your current job if applicable) and complete a master's paper at the end of the program. You go through the IRB process for this paper and really get a foundation in how to do basic research.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The best part of the Drexel online program is that they offer the courses online - I don't even need to go to the campus, for anything. I currently do not have any cons.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I am first year graduate student pursuing the electrical engineering program. The overall coursework that I took had a good amount of workload which pushed me to put efforts beyond my regular level. There was a good equilibrium between pushing the limit and too much of stress. It was exactly the right amount giving me enough room to improve my skills. The professors here have a very good network who link you up to work with different universities and experts from different background, when you take a project oriented course. There are professors from the ivy leagues who make sure you get your fundamentals strong enough before you graduate. With all this quality, Drexel focuses majorly in applying the Electrical engineering into the medical field. Research work here is focused much in the medical field.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The college I'm in is nationally recognized and very flexible for students that work full time. Teachers are very helpful and the new online lecture system is going to be a great improvement for student and teacher collaboration.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

When I am done I will have a degree from one of the top rated nursing schools in the nation but I don't agree with that rating. The program is constantly changing and the curriculum is not up to date with the classes I am taking. The instructors are sub par and there is an excessive use of adjunct professors from all over the country and they do not follow Drexel policies. My advisor is poor and I have not had any assistance with my career path. There are a lot of empty promises and offers for help but no follow through. I have had a few terrific instructors but the bad ones are so bad it isn't worth it for the few that are good. The cost with the discount is the same as other grad programs so it doesn't make sense to switch.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The online family nurse practitioner program through Drexel University has allowed me to advance my education and pursue a masters degree while still working and raising a family. With the flexibility of online classes, students are able to complete the program at a steady pace that is managable to integrate into their current routine.
