Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Doing it online you do not have the 1 on 1 contact with professor. Pros: You can work at your own pace during a day

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

There is strong faculty support when asked. You can always ask for help. The campus is very nice. The greatest con are the costs. There is also lack consistency in information that is being taught. There is a lot of self-reflection, theory, and research too. Practical field skills are not explored as much as theory and research.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Utica has a small campus which makes it accessible to walk from one building to another. The faculty and professors are great. They are will to spend extra time if you do not understand the material. The science lab are up to par and provide students with a variety of ways to learn. Cons: This school is expensive. I'm not sure why. The OT program is $80,000 plus books, housing, etc... There financial aid is mediocre.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

I love the updated physical therapy program, I feel it is more structured for learning than the old program was. I like the focus on clinical experience and that our first clinical experience is within the first year of school. I think it helps with the transition from classroom learning to real world experience and makes the students more confident with their knowledge. Because the physical therapy program is only in its second year of the new accreditation, faculty is still working out the kinks in scheduling and classroom availability. The school is a private institution, therefore tuition and fees are high. I wish there were more financial assistance and scholarship opportunities through the school.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The Occupational Therapy program at Utica College is a great program to be a part of. The staff is caring and devoted to education. Although it is a very expensive graduate program, the program currently has a 100% pass rate for the boards exam to be registered.

Cybersecurity is a rapidly growing and changing field. I feel that Utica is the best school to give me the exact experience and education I need.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Utica College has an excellent Physical Therapy program. The advisers and professors strive to make their students successful. The rooms available for PT students are very nice and give students their own space to work and practice for exams. I love the experience I am getting here at Utica College and wouldn't change a thing.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Since I do not live in the area the idea that I can complete this degree online is a big plus for me. Also, since I am already an intelligence analyst the fact that the school is recognized by both the NSA and Department of Homeland Security was important to me since I expect to continue work in the area of security. Of course with any online degree program it is not the same when you do not have the face to face with the faculty and your peers.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

I participated in a 3 + 3 program, where I did 3 years of undergraduate education and 3 years of graduate. This was an accelerated program that will allow me to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 6 years rather than 7. The professors are all clinicians in the Utica area and can provide direct feedback from their clinical experiences. Although the program is fast paced and accelerated it is rewarding and very intriguing.

I am just beginning my career as a student at Utica College however so far the experience has been great. All of the staff have been very attentive and helpful. They guided me in all the steps necessary to get started on the right path. So far, I haven't found any cons!
