Student & Graduate Reviews

1.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Terrible, will not recommend to anyone. Educators are not supportive, there is no over all Development of the Student , never respond promptly to Questions and concerns. Only try to tear Students down. My 1 year of classes at USA was emotionally draining and near to suicide. I dont want anyone going through that and end their life for some self concentrated educators.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (NP)
Graduation Year: 2015

I love USA. The professors are absolutely wonderful!! They are attentive and easy to access. Helped with clinical placement. I would highly recommend USA for the DNP program. I have been pleased with how they handle your needs. They are professional and provide high quality professionals that know what they are doing.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

University of South Alabama graduate program for future nurse practitioners works well with being able to obtain my degree and doing assignments at my own pace. Also the instructors are very supportive and easy to talk to if there is a concern regarding any assignments or test. I have really enjoyed the year I have been attending this school, I do have another year left and would definitely chose USA for graduate school

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

I am a current student at the University f South Alabama and i graduate with an undergraduate degree this May. I will be starting Medical School this Fall at All Saints University of Medicine in Roseau, Dominica. All Saints University School of Medicine is among the fast growing Medical Schools in the Caribbean island and is recognized by the Government of Commonwealth of Dominica. This school offers the first two years of medicine at Roseau, Dominica which is basic medical sciences and students can decide to stay in Dominica to finish the entire MD program or move to Canada or the United States or any other country to complete their clinical rotations. I intend to do my basic medical sciences there and then move back to the United States to do clinical clerkship for seventy-weeks then get into internal medicine for residency . My goal is to become an internal medicine and infectious disease physician to be able to provide medical care to people around the world primarily in the developing countries.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Acute Care)
Graduation Year: 2022

I appreciate the robust online platform available at USA. My teachers have been very responsive to my questions. I work full-time I love that I can fit in my graduate school work after my children are asleep and on weekends. The tuition is very affordable compared to other graduate degree programs I looked at and I feel I made the right choice in attending USA.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)

USA is a strong nursing programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The instructor are genuinely concerned with your success. The material presented is a great supplement to your clinical experience. The program can be demanding but is an investment for future success.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at the University of South Alabama is a wonderful program. I have gained invaluable knowledge that I would not have acquired had I only taken online courses, and built relationships on a more personal level that I would not have had the opportunity to build at a larger university. The professors were supportive and understanding, while at the same time challenging.

Online program is tough, but affordable and rewarding!
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2008

I attended The University of South Alabama from August 2006 to May 2008. I graduated with a Master of Arts in Public Administration. I was very proud of myself and I enjoyed my studies greatly. The campus was good and my professors were great. They had a strong knowledge of their subject matter and were excellent teachers.
