Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I had an excellent experience with Northcentral University. They have a very flexible schedule that allowed me to work my degree at my pace and timetable. Their courses require you to be self-motivated and disciplined. However, if you need "hand holding" learning style, then this university isn't for you.

I attended Northcentral University online. I was very happy to find an accredited university for Marriage and Family Therapy available online. The program was flexible and professors were easy to contact and helpful.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2017

As a full time teacher, finding the time to pursue a master's degree was difficult. Northcentral University eased that difficulty. Unlike other online graduate programs, you do not need to post on forums weekly. You simply submit your assignment and interact with professors as needed. The rigor is still there and you can still interact with your classmates on The Commons. However, the program is extremely flexible and designed for someone constantly on the go. The administration is also really friendly and caring. When the flooding in Louisiana occurred, my academic advisor called to see if I was ok and if I was capable of completing my assignment on time. Overall, I'm loving my experience at Northcentral University.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

I love the one-to-one model employed at NCU. The 100% doctoral faculty is wonderful as well. The only negative comment I have is the lack of scholarship opportunities for current students (maintaining GPA, etc.) I love this school and would highly recommend it to anyone considering earning their doctoral degree!

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

The school is absolutely expensive and they do not offer any kind of financial assistance. I am relying solely on student loans which means I will be in debt forever unless I win the lottery. I owe so much is student loans it is absolutely ridiculous. Sometimes I feel like quitting because of the financial burden of getting this degree.
