Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I have thoroughly enjoyed my classes in UWA's online graduate program. My professors are always available to answer my questions and they get back to me in a timely manner. I am learning so many different concepts that I will be able to use in my career as a School Counselor. These are just a few of the many reasons I love being a student at the University of West Alabama! I haven't found one thing that I dislike about my experience at UWA!!!

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros - Program requirements are well defined. Advisers are very knowledgeable, and supportive. Campus is beautiful. Cons - Online e-learning software program is underutilized by professors. Some Graduate program Professors are not easily accessible via e-mail, or on campus. Courses are offered in the Fall only, or Spring Only. There is only one professor teaching each course, so you are stuck with them regardless. Beware of hidden tuition fines and fees. If you are receiving financial aid, the UWF distribution date for F/A is after the Tuition due date.

The graduate program is very challenging and even though I take classes on-line, professors are accessible. The technological support is amazing.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe that UWF is a school worth attending if you live in the Pensacola area. The faculty are usually very helpful and advisors are on top of everything.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The use of technology and accessibility of classmates and teachers are a major pro. Tuition is also affordable, especially for graduate programs when comparing to other universities. I love being able to access my classes any hour of the day so that I can keep my personal and work lives going but still attend school. I would say the one con about the program is that there aren't many scholarship options.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: The work is doable and designed for people who are working in school settings. Cons: The professors for the online program are very hit and miss as far as responsiveness to questions. Also, 3 of my 12 classes had you make up false data to write papers on, it ethically made me uncomfortable given on the contexts.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

The online program for Educational Leadership is challenging, informative, and convenient. Although online learning takes a certain degree of self-motivation, the results are rewarding. Interaction with peers is professional and collegial. The technology at UWF is user-friendly and help desk provides quick and thorough assistance.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate degree in curriculum and instruction is a great program at UWF. Not only will the student attain a master's degree within 4 semesters, but she will also attain a teaching certificate in the state of Florida in the desired teaching area. The classes I have taken thus far have been enlightening and will certainly help me in my future career.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

Faculty in the biology department are easily accessible and enjoy nothing more than helping their students succeed. Doors are always open for communication, not only about school work, but about day-to-day stresses and curve balls that life may throw. The campus is open and inviting, with many student organizations advertising to new students.
