Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros are that the program is all online and is wonderful for students pursuing a masters and balancing a full time job. Cons are that it is hard sometimes to really connect with students and teachers in the online environment but Lewis does a good job with discussion boards.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently pursuing my Master's degree in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling at Lewis University. My experience in the program thus far has been astounding. My professors, who have all had extensive experience in the field, are approachable and always willing to help. I feel well equipped in my field of study due to the courses I have had the pleasure of taking. The only disadvantage is the limited scholarships available for this program.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros- the professors and advisors are available and willing to help you out at all times. They are very understanding, and really make sure that you are prepared for life after the program.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

In my opinion, I feel the courses are both challenging and insightful. The professors are very knowledgable of the field. I do feel I am getting the necessary education to prepare me for my future in counseling. The only drawback is the availability of the courses. Some courses are only available one semester out of the year.
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

I am an online student in the Master of Science program in Information Security, started Spring 2015 and expecting to complete 2016

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

The ability to chose between on-line and face to face classes makes multi-tasking between work and school easier. The con of this program is the fact you must find your own clinical sites for the nurse practitioner program, which can be difficult.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

I love that the teachers really care about their students and are always available to help. They are also very understanding and want the best for their class. What I have learned at Lewis has definitely helped me in the real world.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Lewis University is a community of passionate and accessible experts who carefully balance research-based pedagogy and androgogy with the practical authority of experience. The graduate program prepared me to bring the theory of critical, transformative education to my administrative career immediately
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros in the Graduate program in Criminal and Social Justice is that they have several area sights (Cohorts) to make it convenient to be able to complete your classes closer to home. Lewis also provides online classes to help students complete their degree from their own home or office. The cons in the Criminal and Social Justice program at Lewis is that you need to decide at the entrance of this program to either be an online student or go to the traditional settings of going to class each week. I do not like the idea that you can only choose one or the other. I would like to see that the students can make their own choices every semester and decide want they want. After all we are students that pay tuition regardless which way we want to learn. In the end you must learn and earn your degree.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

I absolutely love the Online Organizational Leadership program. I am able to complete challenging coursework from my home according to my weekly schedule. Due dates are consistent (Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays) which helps me plan ahead. Readings are interesting and challenging. Most professors have been excellent. I have had one or two dud professors, but that happens with almost any program. The school was very responsive when I expressed a concern with a professor and the matter was taken care of quickly. There are no actual lectures to listen to, so it's a lot of self-learn, but I enjoy that style. We do have group projects which can be slightly tricky with group members living all across the US, but it is really fun to "meet" new people.
