Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The counseling program at NEIU is great for working professionals who are looking to improve themselves. A drawback to this graduate program is that most students do not regularly interact outside of class. The classes are not extremely challenging, but I have learned a lot so far. I feel that I will be prepared to be a counselor upon finishing the program.

I am pleased to have the opportunity to defend a research thesis, though I would've liked to have more options for advanced biology during my coursework.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

There is an excellent faculty of extremely intelligent professors and educators. I feel that the education I have gained though the classes at Northeastern Illinois University will prepare me for my career after Graduate school.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

University professors and staff have been extremely helpful and supportive during the transition to graduate school. Professors make themselves available to students.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm a working, married adult, and can't afford to quit work and go back to grad school. And I can't afford some of the bigger schools. NEIU is a perfect compromise, and it's located right down the block from my undergrad alma mater. Win win.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros- teachers are awesome, very affordable, close to home. Cons- School is old, library is awful, climate control for whole school is bad, parking is a nightmare, no direction or guidance on where to go to succeed, no help or direction to free services.
2.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

For MS in Biology in ecology, I should have studied out west. Tuition was what appealed to me. Didn't have to take GRE to join program. Public transportation is awesome and lots of things to do in Chicago.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

This is a good quality graduate program in counselor education for an affordable price.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The faculty seem to enjoy teaching very much, and they are current in their fields. It's great to have teachers/researchers instead of only researchers.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

NEIU is a great school and is ranked in the top ten of US News Colleges with the best value!
