Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2012

It is a great school and I enjoyed my time there.
3.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2007

Great school and degree, loved Pocatello but not a great career network.
2.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

I didn't have the typical college experience as I started in my mid 20's. I was married for most of my college career so I was able to focus on school while my wife worked which was nice. I think that college is important if you have a specific goal and career in mind. I haven't had success with using my degree and currently work in a completely unrelated field. It is frustrating to be paying student loans and not even using the degree that I spent 7 years getting. If you do go to college find out a way to not take out loans.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I went to a large university for my undergraduate work, so I enjoyed going somewhere smaller to get my Master's. I did not attend the main Idaho State University campus, but instead the Health Sciences campus in Meridian. Since there is no student housing for this campus, it made it feel even more like a completely different experience than undergrad. It was also an extremely affordable option for a master's. I was very happy with my graduate school experience.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2019

As an online student through ISU, I can't speak to efficency of campus security, the social aspect of campus life, financial aid, or the area in and around Pocatello. I didn't want to give the school a negative rating just because I am not familiar with these categories. I can say that the MOLP program is great thus far and I am already able to apply information I've learned in my first semester to my career. It's definitely a great program for students that are looking to advance their career within an organization.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

ISU is great university with a very helpful staff. The College of Education, in general, provide the support any graduate students needs to success while maintain a social life and current career. The program is step up in an organized manner and provides everything from a solid foundation to in-depth thought and learner. Truly, they prepare individuals for the desired careers. The only con is some classes aren't available every semester.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

One of the best things about my PhD program is that I have been able to complete most of my work online. I only have to be on campus when presenting, as I will need to be when I propose my dissertation research. The program I am in is in flux right now, as the department is rearranged. This makes advising problematic, evidenced by having 4 advisors in three years.

Degree: Health Sciences

PROS= I have great teachers and resources! CONS= I can not think of any!
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Very helpful and friendly faculty Cheap tuition Good professional development & networking opportunities Cons: Class sizes of approximately 30 students/class Business building itself could use an upgrade Not enough diversity in classes offered; there were often classes I wanted to take, but were not offered here.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is great because it offers non-traditional students the chance to earn a Master's degree.
