Student & Graduate Reviews

4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2012

Great accounting department and supportive faculty. The masters in accounting program was a challenge that I believe pushed me to be a better student and allowed me more opportunities in the job market subsequent to receiving my degree.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2007

Great small university that i feel is growing too quickly. I went for undergrad and grad school. Now they are building in all the green space and the tuition goes up every year, not sure if its worth the huge cost at this point.

SJFC and their Ed.D. program is a thorough and competitive program. They want you to succeed ad provide high quality education to prepare you to write and defend your dissertation. The staff and faculty are champions of education and best practices!I highly recommend this program.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

St. John Fisher College is a beautiful private school in the suburbs of Rochester, NY. Being a Fisher Cardinal is an amazing experience. The school is small, but there is always something to do. There are many intramural sports leagues all year long where you can meet a lot of different people. There is an annual dance for charity called the Teddi Dance for Love, which is a 24 hour dance for charity. Academically, Fisher will challenge you to be the best student you can be. The professors really care about their students and Fisher makes you feel at home.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

St. John Fisher's graduate program for Mental Health Counseling has small classroom sizes that foster an interactive learning environment. Most, if not all, professors are practicing counselors in the field and they often relate current problems they encountered into lecture. We are encouraged to have class discussions and also have online discussions via the Blackboard site. There are also several high-tech session rooms where we can practice and record counseling sessions and learn from them. Coursework keeps us busy but is by no means busy work. The students and professors all have solid relationships built on respect and empathy for one another. We are able to talk to our professors about any concerns. The tuition is very affordable compared to other counseling programs in the area. There are also options for part-time or full-time to accommodate student schedules. Lastly, there is an extensive network of St. John Fisher MHC alumni across New York State that faculty have already gotten students in touch with. This is very important for our program internships, post-graduation certification/supervision hours, and eventually career planning. Since our professors are working as counselors it can be difficult to see them for office hours. They almost always respond to emails within a day though and work with you to schedule a good time to meet. Commuting to school is not a problem for me but there is no bus transportation off of campus. It's hard to think of any other cons, St. John Fisher has been everything I hoped for and more from a graduate school.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

While there seems to be a lack of diversity, at least in the graduate programs, the faculty and staff is very accommodating and understanding. The program rigor is has been challenging, however very necessary. I have learned so much and it is all very applicable to my field of study. What I love most, is the theory to practice experiences. The professors teach content that can and should go from theory to practice. Aside from that, the grounds are beautiful, and there is food everywhere. The campus has impeccable technology, that is easily accessible to students and the library is the best, with three floors of information and a third floor designated for studying. Fisher is a pretty awesome school!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The SJFC MBA Program is great for undergraduate alumni seeking a painless application process. Alumni also receive a $500 scholarship for enrolling in the program. Class sizes are small, typically 15-25 students. I'm not just a number to my professors or a first name. Most of my professors know more about me than a general acquaintance. The core course requirements educate me on more areas of business than management. Core course examples are, Integrated Advanced Financial and Accounting Analysis and Business Strategy and Policy. Alumni and Faculty have great contacts to assist students in getting a job. Cons: There is a lack of diversity on campus. Living near campus is expensive. Not many courses are available to take online. Some courses are only offered in either Spring or Fall semesters.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I have loved every class that I have taken, and all of the professors are wonderful at what they do. The only downside is the timing of the classes being three hours long, but that is unavoidable. The faculty does a great job at breaking up the classes with jokes and witty discussion that is all relevant and aids with the education. I have learned more in one semester in this program than I did in all of my undergraduate years combined.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

The Wegman's School of Nursing is an outstanding program for undergraduate and graduate students. The facility has a state of the art simulation center that places students at the bedside and allows them to practice skills they have learned in the hospital and in the classroom. The faculty is phenomenal and are always willing to help their students succeed. The school is located in Rochester NY, a center for many high-quality medical centers. The only significant con would be that the school is expensive, but there are a lot of resources to help students find financial aid.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013

St. John Fisher College is a top-rated college known for its development of leaders and promotion of individualism. Pros of MS in Advanced Practice include (a) nationally-renowned staff in the arena of nursing (b) state-of-art nursing facility (c) promotion of advanced practice nurses (d) involvement in community and global medical missions (e) diverse culture. Cons are based solely on cost of graduate program.
