Student & Graduate Reviews

4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018

I have just completed the online masters program for criminal justice. I am a full time police officer working in another state . The work load was challenging but manageable. The school was very cost effective and the instructors held students to standards but were fair. I would certainly recomend this school to other criminal just professionals.

Degree: Business

Experience everything you can and connect with those you meet as the contacts you make in college can help you throughout your career. Overall college is a very rewarding experience in which you get out what you put in.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2019

This program had some rough starts for me. However, the department is getting much better. The advising is better. There is actually a clear path of which classes to take and when. Staff can still be very uneven about answering emailed questions, and some of the adjunct professors are not as good as to be hoped for, or eager to make accommodations when requested (for those without an educational background). However, as I said, the school is improving. The value for the money, and the ability to take almost all your classes online is exceptional.

FHSU Online Learning programs offer effective and efficient ways of learning necessary components of Business Administration that will be used in real life settings.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

I choose this school because they were affordable, and the program was what I want to do in life. The program has since been discontinued, but even before it was, the classes have nothing to do with the degree. All of the classes are about academic research, and that has little to do with social media management. The instructors are barely interactive, I have regularly had professors not respond to emails, take weeks to grade assignments, and when they do, not provide feedback, but take points off. There is no way for online students to interact with their fellow students, despite many being all over the world, not just in Kansas. Many of the professors simply provide "busy" work that does not teach students anything. Overall, I regret taking this degree and have wasted the last two years. I hope I can at least get a job from it, but I doubt that since I barely learned anything that will qualify me to be a Social Media Manager.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2011

Fort Hays was wonderful. The curriculum was easy to follow and the instructors were awesome.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

This program is intensive, but comes with great support from the instructors. Instructors are all very knowledgable and show great care for their students. The School Counseling Master's degree is mostly completed on-line. A little bit of on campus time is required as well as practicum and internship hours. I feel very prepared to enter the work force from the education I received at Fort Hays.

The higher education program at Fort Hays so every satisfying. Advisors are very helpful. Workload seems to be a little bit of busy work but am learning a lot.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2018

I like the program so far because of its convenience, marketability and most of all as my passion. I would really love to have a scholarship considering my passion int he field and my competency.
