Graduation Year: 2017

Maryville University is a great school! Friendly staff and students. The course work is difficult at times and somewhat east at others. With that being said, I never felt that I wasn't learning. There were always homework assignments, quizzes, presentations, etc that needed to be completed. Most people want to further their education, others do it for a pay increase at work, bottom line is if you are looking for a great school, teachers, course content and cost, Maryville is a great place to go.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Adult-Gerontology Primary Care)
Graduation Year: 2017

Terrible university to attend. Don't every bump heads with any of the instructors in this program because you will be their worst enemy. All the instructors in one the graduate department are caucasians who really hate to see African American succeed. I would not recommend this program to anyone unless you're willing to throw your money away. No consistency with the instructors grading and you'll never be able to view your test because they're to lazy to change the test from previous classes. This kind of university will not be helpful in your career. This is a very poor school. Nobody listens to the students it's all about what the instructors say.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Maryville was my choice because I needed an affordable masters program with an accelerated pace option. I've been in the work world for almost ten years and found my lack of an advanced degree was holding me back so I went for it.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Program started off with a bang. Difficult classes, lots of work, learned a lot. Some great teachers, until mid way through the program. Suddenly no communication, the instructor takes a week vacation. Records a class meeting promises to post it since it occurred mid day during the work week. One posted, one bad link, one never posted happened. Good luck with feedback and grades. First grade or any response did not happen until the third week of an eight week class. Teacher made an error assigning groups, to fix it she erases everyone's work. Her grading criteria didn't match the syllabus. The instructor creates an assignment but posts it incorrectly, half the class doesn't see it and never completes the assignment. The assignment does not show up in the calender, nor the to do list. No response to questions about the assignment. Call counselor for assistance, nearly impossible to reach. Call goes straight to answering system. Poor phone system once out of more than ten call spoke to a human! Really p**** off!!

Degree: Cyber Security
Graduation Year: 2018

Maryville University provides an excellent way to earn a graduate degree. The courses are rigorous but the instructors do provide you with the necessary information and background to complete the assignments and gain an excellent understanding of the material. Maryville University is a university that enjoys hearing student feedback. After every course, instructors ask for course improvements and students conduct an end of the course evaluation. Students that enroll in Maryville's M.S. in Cyber Security will receive a strong background in Cyber Security protocols, ethical hacking and network security. The courses are designed to get students ready to be in managerial positions within cyber security. This school is highly recommended for those that require distance education due to their jobs, families, etc., as you will receive a grand education in a setting that you choose.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2018

Maryville University is a good school for those that want to complete their degree on their own time. It is not a good school for those that want instruction and professor interaction. Some of the professors are good but most of them do not provide good feedback or you just don't hear from them. The curriculum is generic for every class so there are things that the professors expect of you that is not on the rubric to be graded. It is quite an expensive school to be teaching yourself.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019

Maryville University is a great school to select as your choice for an online MBA program. You can take the courses at your own pace, as long as you finish them within a five year span. Also, the workload is not too difficult, as I am a mother of one and expecting a second child soon. Most of my work has been a combination of papers and discussions. Lastly, the teachers are available whenever you need assistance, which is helpful. Choosing an online MBA program gives me the freedom to do the assignments when I have the time versus attending a class one, two, or three nights a week.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2019

The enrollment process was simple and I was able to start classes quickly. I had considered another program and the application process was not complete in four weeks after I sent in my transcripts so I had to start over and pay another $65 application fee. With Maryville, everything was processed in about three weeks and I had a decision. It worked out for the best because Maryville is a great program and has a fantastic pass rate on the national exam. The classes are tough and you will be spending a lot of time on assignments but I feel I will be prepared when I graduate.
