Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program is academically rigorous and involved. Financial aid is lacking and tuition and fees are above average.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently studying human relations at the University of Oklahoma while working full time. This program is excellent for working adults who cannot afford to go part time or quit employment in order to return to school. This program is primarily weekend-based and online classes. The professors are pioneers in their field and have a plethora of research, clinical, and teaching experience. However, as convenient as this program is, quality education comes with a price. These classes are expensive per credit hour and can add up quickly when using loans to pay for tuition. Another con to this program is that campus-based classes are only 6 days--or two weekends. I do not feel as though I can learn as much in a 6 day class as I can in a traditional semester-long class.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that my graduate program is one of the best offered in the area. It fits my needs, the professors are amazing and I love the program.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is extremely competitive and difficult for students with families. I have learned more form this program than I ever thought possible and I love being a part of the program. I am excited to learn from such knowledgeable professors and after every class feel much more competent to enter a clinical therapeutic setting. I have met people that I will remain in contact with throughout our experience and I can utilize this network to benefit my clients. I live in a rural area, about an hour away from my school and that makes it difficult at times and I have to take the full amount of loans out to continue my education.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2019

Norman is a great place overall, the majority of the people are kind, and it has an overall small town feel. The professors in the chemistry program are awesome, and even the ones that seem a little scary at first are nice if you get to know them. The downsides of this program are that you have to pay student fees out of your stipend, and the water in Norman tastes funny.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are the flexibility to obtain your Master's degree while working full time. Another pro is the faculty is willing to work with you and encourages you to dive deeper into the material studies. The only con I have is that you cannot complete the degree entirely online.
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

the pros are the great teachers and the availability. the cons are that the technology could be better and the social life is lacking.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The program was restructured recently from Community Counseling to Professional Counseling, and that has left a little bit of ambiguity as to which classes will be needed going forward from semester to semester. I'm sure this is something that will be ironed out in the not-so-distant future, however. That being said, I have had nothing but positive experiences with the faculty and the course work and am immensely grateful for not only the opportunity to pursue my passion, but to do so in such a supportive, understanding and knowledgeable atmosphere.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

The school is in a relatively conservative area of the country, lending toward a more homogenous student body with little racial and ethnic variation.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Awesome university, great campus. With MOST other colleges in the university, I've heard very few complaints. Cons: College of Education is inefficient. In the 5 years there, 4 different advisers, and an interim dean. No consistency or reliability. Class credits and credit requirements are constantly changing, screwing students and their wallets over. Student teaching MUST be done through the Grad college, forcing students to enroll and pay Grad school hours for very little support. College of Education program is just terrible - I wish I went to UCO, I would have gotten more support for my money (and have had to take out less loans).
