Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2014

My experience with Fielding was amazing. I found my local professor to be very supportive, interested, and brilliant. I felt like I truly belonged to something bigger than just myself, I was not just a number. I can see how some fall behind, but if you are able to remain self-motivated and determined, the structure is there for you.
2.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 1996

Stay away! Terrible financial decision, low graduation rate most students paying over nine years hundreds of thousands in combination of tuition loans expenses and lost income. Spent over $60,000 just continuing four years ABD with no services and terrible, neglectful management of dissertation process. Some lovely faculty but a disaster of a choice financially. Wish Id made formal complaints years ago.

My experience with Fielding was exceptional. The professors were outstanding and willing to offer assistance beyond the classroom. If you are highly motivated, self-directed and ready for a rigorous and demanding educational experience, the Fielding Graduate University would be a great choice!

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Fielding offers a unique opportunity to contribute new knowledge through rigorous study in an environment dedicated to advancing social justice, leadership, and human and organizational change. The self-directed learning style outlined by frequent cohort discussions both challenges and rewards students in developing advanced thought. The schools instructors are seasoned scholar-practitioners with experience in both academia and professional practice. This program allows you to truly craft your own educational experience that is specific to your needs and future goals.

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

I am elated with Fielding Graduate University and the accreditation that is presented. The university has been very instrumental in assisting me through mentorship as well as guidance and direction throughout the curriculum. Their multidisciplinary team has been a welcoming attraction to me as a emerging neuropsychological.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

This program is outstanding. It is ideal for those who are advanced in their respective fields and do not require traditional brick and mortar settings. The distributed learning model is innovative and fun, however it can be challenging completing work online if your learning style is more attuned to face to face work. This program is considerably more flexible for me as I am still working at this time.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a very interesting and innovative program.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great academically rigorous and flexible program! However, this program requires that all students travel to the program site with their own funds (or take out student loan funding).
