Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Some of the faculty is extremely hard to get in contact with. One professor took 10 DAYS to respond to repeated emails. I am on my FOURTH committee chair and she is wonderful, the first quit the university, the second and third were useless and provided very little feedback on my work. The curriculum is robust and well developed. I had a great time doing my coursework here.

All online, no peer support. Instructors are helpful but again, all online so time is a consideration. So far, so good.

The online program is a good value and applicable to the working professional. The program allows for the flexibility needed to maintain daily work schedules. The education is applicable to the current workforce.

The pros of the graduate program is being able to study at my own pace without being bogged down with group assignments. No cons at this time

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The biggest pro is that this particular program does not require a residency which is difficult for full-time employees with a family. It allows the student to completely work online through every aspect. The biggest con for this program is that while there are mentors, those mentors are not teaching they are simply grading papers from their perspective and if a student does not give the mentor what they are looking for the grade subsequently reflects poorly regardless of the paper being well written or not.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Entering into a fully-online graduate program, I was nervous that I would not have the support or accessibility to my professors and advisors that I would have at a brick and mortar institution. Luckily, the faculty and administration is very supportive and communicative with students. I am only just starting on this journey, but I am confident that with hard work, determination, and the ongoing support of my professors and peers, I will be very successful at Northcentral.

The school does not offer student email accessible outside the school system. This is inconvenient when attempting to apply for scholarships or other student affiliated programs.
