Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The Pros is the first year your classes are split, so you only have one class per 8 weeks. You can go to class when it is most convenient for you because everything is on line. The student advisors and faculty are very helpful and there for you. Cons: the cost for online only I believe is a little high, however it is competitive with all other online programs. In the beginning, the website was going down alot and was unable to check your student email, however it appears they have fixed this and is working fine now.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that my program enables me to work full-time in order to support my family while also going to graduate school. The flexibility of the program along with it being 100% online is the major con of Maryville University. One of the cons of the program is that it has been extremely difficult trying to do group work with other students in different time zones because we all work as undergraduate level nurses across the country.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Some parts of our curriculum can be extremely difficult and incredibly challenging. I wish that there were more resources for financial aid especially in grad school. Although the program is an entry level program which gives you the reassurance that the school wants to see you there and graduate to get a job. The staff are always available to help and meet with any concerns you are having.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: My class size is very small, which helped me feel more comfortable with my classmates and professors. All of the professors are on a first-name basis with their students, and make sure that everyone is excelling in each class. If someone is not doing well, the professor is open to doing whatever they can to help the student succeed. In addition, our university has a lot of connections in the surrounding area and state, so we are able to complete field experiences often. In this program, we are expected to do assignments in the community or with individuals whom we do not know, challenging us to be uncomfortable and still successful. Cons: The only con I have is the expense of this program, because we are only offered loans during our final graduate year of school.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Good support initially, then some of the teachers seemed to be hard to get ahold of. A lot of turn over while I was there. It seemed like some teachers didn't read my essays and papers because I wouldn't get comments on the quality, or the lack there of.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Maryville's rehabilitation counseling program has been very rewarding so far. Although rehabilitation counseling is often confused with substance abuse counseling and many schools do not offer a degree in it, the professors at Maryville come from all walks of life and are very educated on the history, purpose, legal aspects, etc. of rehabilitation counseling. They, as well as our required field placements, have made me very excited to continue in the field and try my best to help those who are underrepresented and face barriers because of a disability status. The hands on experience and diverse group of professors are my favorite parts of the program while my least favorite part is the small amount of students enrolled in the program. It would be nice to have more classmates because it would diversify our future group of professionals in terms of gender, culture, and experience.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Maryville University currently has an entry level doctorate program for Physical Therapy. I enjoyed getting to know my classmates from the very beginning. My professors are amazing, and they always take time out of their day to meet with students for many reasons. They truly care about our educational experience. I have always felt safe on campus, but there is not much of a social life on campus. Campus housing is extremely expensive; therefore I had to move off campus after my freshman year of under-graduate classes.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

The Maryville University Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program is one of the best in the country. I visited several different colleges before choosing Maryville, and I felt Maryville was the best fit for me. The class sizes are small and each student has more than sufficient one-on-one time with the instructors. Maryville has a great placement program and require a lot of clinical hours at different facilities, which has harbored an amazing relationship with Maryville students and the surrounding Physical Therapy community. Maryville is the one of the best places to seek a Doctorate in Physical Therapy!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I love the small class sizes and experienced staff at Maryville but don't like the emphasis placed on vocational counseling as opposed to mental health counseling in general. I do feel that the teachers and other professionals care about their students and want the best for them.
