Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

TAMUC is one of the best schools for almost any program you are looking for. Our professors are very open and light-hearted individuals who truly care about our success. Now, if you are looking for a jumping community scene or a night out on the town, Commerce is not for you. But our student life department along with Greek life and Residence Halls do an amazing job in providing fun and educational programs. I couldn't imagine picking another school.!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Texas A&M Commerce has been a tremendous experience for me thus far. I plan on graduating in the fall of 2015. I am a full time teacher / coach / and student, the faculty has been overwhelmingly helpful in working with me. One professor emailed me my assignment a day early to get a head start on it due to having a varsity basketball tournament the day of class. I live an hour and half away from campus and had an awful storm come through my area. I notified the professor and he told me to "wait until the weather settles and get here when you can". This was during a Maymester so each class was very intense. Again the professor worked with me as well, on making up the 3 hours of class I missed that night. RJ

Works great into any schedule. My husband is a full time grad student, I work full time, with two children, so I can work around soccer, basketball and work. I felt challenged, and believe it was time well spend.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: staff and professors really want you to learn and are very helpful and accessible, financial and scholarships are easy to apply for, overall staff is very helpful and nice, professors really care about what they are teaching Cons: can make friends in classes but most students work or have families so not much social life, very little safe public transportation, library books are older (not a lot of newer authors) and accessing website research articles can be difficult if off campus b/c library web site does have glitches sometimes

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The biggest pro is that you can work through the program at your own pace, completing it as quickly or as slowly as you need. It is a great program for those who want to continue to work full-time, as there are a lot of opportunities to take coursework on-line and at satellite campuses throughout North Texas.

This school needs to provide a better understanding of the dissertation process. Students are left on this big part of the program stuck.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The counseling program is well equipped with instructors who are very knowledgeable and professional. If you are willing to gain knowledge and advancement in your career, the opportunity is available. However, to gain optimal outcome, and realize the full potential of the merits of the program, you have to go the extra mile to build up, and collaborate with your professional extended family; instructors, academic advisers, cohort, peers, and the like. Otherwise, you may not benefit much from those opportunities, and especially faculty accessibility and support.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently enrolled in the Higher Education Leader Doctoral Program at TAMUC. Overall, the program is good. I am struggling with a course this semester, but it is to no fault of the instructor or the institution. I simply should have taken it face to face instead of online. I am 21 credits into my program and feel confident that I will receive the assistance I need as long as I continue to seek the resources (advising, etc). The cons of taking the difficult classes online is not having someone readily available to explain content with more clarity.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is very flexible which caters to the needs of non- traditional students. This is especially important as many teachers/ educators do not desire to quit working. The cons of the program is that due to it being mainly online, there is little networking available.
