Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

This online degree provides a level of flexibility around work schedules and other various daily activities. The workload is reasonable, with each class requiring on average about 15 hours per week of your time. Despite this course being an online environment, there is consistent interaction with fellow students. Instructors provide material to facilitate learning and create an effective learning environment. Instructors provide constructive feedback on all assignments and generally post grades in a timely manner to allow you to track your progress. Fellow students are respectful and provide new perspectives on various topics through discussion board posts. This program is laying a solid foundation of skills and knowledge that are required by business professionals. The program is reasonably priced compared to various other programs. I would recommend this program to a current professional looking to develop their business and management skills.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019

I began studying at Tiffin for the fall semester of 2017. As the university seems to offer a good quality of academics, I may not continue attending after January 2018. For this to be an online graduate degree program it is not very flexible at all to working adults with lives. Before the awkward judgement comes, yes I know it is a Master's program with deadlines like any brick and mortar degree. Any graduate degree worth the financial and mental investment should be rigorous of course. However, I think the school should reevaluate some things. First of all the degree program is marketed as being geared towards working adults with lives. This is not the case at all. My colleagues are enrolled in Doctoral/Doctorate programs (blended traditional/online) who are not this overwhelmed every day. In my first degree program at Penn State, instructors were very encouraging by providing students with both positive and negative feedback. The instructors here at Tiffin are very hard to please giving students negative feedback only. Each class requires almost a five page essay in the weekly Discussion post areas to "almost" be considered sufficient, and that's without the three pages just to reply to two of your peers. With all of this being said you still may only receive a 7 out of 10 if you're lucky. The reasons will be--"Two of your peer replies were sufficient while your others were very weak". The magic word here is two everyone . This doesn't make any sense if the supposed grading requirement is to post at least two sufficient replies. This university might be alright for some students, but I'll be transferring. I should have known something was up as their retention is very low, and class sizes shrink more and everyday. Right now my classes have about twenty active students between the two of them.

Degree: Criminology
Graduation Year: 2016

Tiffin University had an amazing online collaborative and easy to use academic learning experience. The professors were engaging and group conversations were informative and comprehensive. The financial aid department was horrible to deal with as the employees would never get back to you. Other than that, it was a smooth program that developed high caliber information to the student.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018

Tiffin University has been a very rewarding experience so far and I'm happy I chose them for my Master's program. It's hard having a full-time job and still trying to go to school. Their online classes are convenient and well-worth it. I've learned so much, so quickly, and the professors there are very understanding and knowledgeable. They love providing extensive information and provide you with the proper resources to succeed. I look forward to graduating knowing I've had the best professors on this path to obtaining my Master's.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

If you are looking to further your education after your undergraduate studies in criminal justice then Tiffin University online is the place to be. When I started my graduate program at Tiffin, I was challenged but not overworked with the course load. Having already worked 28 years in law enforcement I had seen a lot, and probably had more "real life" experience than my classmates, but I still felt that there was plenty left to learn from the courses they had to offer. I wasn't disappointed. The courses I took in Justice Administration, took me into areas of law enforcement (administration) that I had very limited knowledge about. After completing these courses I came away with a better understanding of management. You won't be disappointed in choosing Tiffin!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Unfortunately the program does not offer any scholarships or grants for graduate students, even based upon higher GPA's. But communication between professors and students are always open and feedback is consistently provided. I value the education I am getting and work hard for it. There is always encouragement from professors that is not demeaning but insightful. The school is accredited and the quality of work and expectations are what I would expect of a graduate program. Work can be time consuming but I feel I will be prepared for eventual doctoral studies.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros to my graduate program are the benefit of establishing a sought after education by employers first and foremost, secondly the ability to obtain my degree from a University that has the option to be a seated student or online, the faculty is very helpful from the admissions to the professors, and lastly I feel that I am receiving the education that is necessary to advance me in life. There are not many cons to being a Tiffin University student, other than the tuition is somewhat higher than what financial aid that I have available to me and there are not many internal scholarships available for me to apply to that would come directly to the school, However, I am an alumni of Tiffin University so I do have the benefit of receiving credit towards my tuition cost for that. The tuition credit made it more than competitive in comparison to other schools.
