Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2014

FIU offers a challenging masters program for Engineering students. they also give the option for students to take all their classes online rather than being present in class room. That helps a lot of students as well... All the professors at the department of Construction Management are helpful and always available to help the students in anyway they can.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: FIU is a highly diverse and social campus! There is always something going on, and the school is a Hispanic Serving Institution, as well as a highly diverse student body. The research taking place at FIU is very innovative and exciting. With the recent addition of the Medical School and new buildings on campus, FIU is a young and growing academic institution. Cons: FIU is a commuter school so parking has always been an issue. Although FIU is a fully wireless campus, technology is not always up to date. Furthermore, the University can be disorganized at times in terms of disseminating information and/or updating policies, although this has improved greatly over the past five years.

3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

The material is interesting and is geared towards an emerging professional in the field. There is emphasis on evidence based protocol which is good but there is not much guidance sometimes for things.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2008

Program is accreditated and most faculty are caring and do their best to ensure your success. FIU is located in very crowded and traffic infested part of the city... must have lots of patience.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I am new to the school. It takes some getting use to but I am slowly starting to feel in. The wait time is sometimes long but when I do get the assistance, it is usually helpful. Hopefully I will be able to grow within the community and see this as a home again.
