Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

I appreciate that the accelerated program allows me to work towards my goals while also working full time to support my family. It can be extremely tough at times but I don't expect easy when I'm working to better myself. I love that I'm setting the best example for my son and showing him the worth of a graduate education.

Excellent school that allows me to finish my degree quickly and efficiently. Although, the availability of career resources could be better.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I am early on in my graduate program in Higher Education Administration with National University, but I am very satisfied with my program so far! All of my classes are online and I have one course per month, so it is easy to find the balance between work, home life, and school when I only have one class to worry about at a time. I am very happy with the quality of instruction and the relevancy of the material.

2.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The University offers good education but offers limited courses and less benefits with the library or public transportation etc.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I have nothing negative to say about the program. The online courses have been extremely accomodating so that I could stay at home with my baby. The teachers have been extremely helpful and are there for assistance whenever I need it.
1.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

The Cons of the programs are that the school lacks in providing the students with career help. There needs to be improvement in career advising and help in finding jobs with the majors. The Pros of the major are the ratio for the teacher and students is mostly 1 to 15-20. The professors are educated and know what they are talking about.
