Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

Being online is a huge plus, this allows me to not have to move since there isn't a school in my town. The class sizes are reasonable and the professors are more than willing to help students. So far I haven't run into any cons.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

My programs offers great opportunities to succeed in and out of the classroom. My program is Education and Edinboro provides experience to prepare us well for any endeavors we encounter in the future professionally. Although I will admit I was a little apprehensive at the beginning of my program with having classes online, I feel that online classes have allowed me to enrich my educational experience by allowing to me learn on my own, but also interact with my peers and instructor via online discussions.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

Our graduate program is intense especially since I am in the advance standing program which allows me to complete my master's within in one year instead of the normal two years (pro). However, I really HATE how the classes during the Fall and Spring Semesters are ONLY offered at night time. My sons and I wake up every morning at 5 a.m. and there are nights that I do not return home until 9:30 p.m (con). Also, I do not like how the Winter and Summer Courses are ONLY offered on-line. However, all of the professors seem to be truly passionate about their careers and very supportive (pro).

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Edinboro University of Pennsylvania is actually a wonderful school. Many times our university is overlooked when compared to Gannon, Mercyhurst, Penn State or Clarion. However, every professor that I have become acquainted with are very passionate about their career of choice. They are truly intelligent from their education in addition to their experiences. The biggest con I would state is the mandatory online courses in the summer and winter sessions. I believe we should have had a choice to take them on campus.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Edinboro University has been able to transform me from a B average student to an A student in just a year. I love learning more about the career that I love to do with nothing but support from the educators. The professors have provided a safe learning environment for us to be able to grow and develop into one of a kind Social Workers. The high demands of course work, internship and trying to make a living cause a lot of stress but at the end of the day it is worth it to be able to learn the tools I need to help make the world a better place for the clients that I will one day be helping.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the online program are that it allows me to be more flexible with my work schedule. I do not have to worry about sitting in a classroom after working all day. The cons of the online programs are that you do not get the face to face interaction with professors and students.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

It's the most affordable graduate school for speech-language pathology in the state! All first year students receive a graduate assistantship. You work closely with every professor, although sometimes their teaching style may make you feel like you're not learning all you could learn.
3.63 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

My program is only online, so I am not sure of some of the physical aspects of the campus. Overall a great program that allows for flexibility of work.
2.75 out of 5.0

The school is great especially for online programs. However, there is little to offer financial assistance for out of state students.
