Aspen University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (65)
This a very good school, although it's not a traditional brick and mortar your learning experience will be as good or better based on flexibility. While attending I was working as a Police officer and juggling a family of five,which made it almost impossible for me to return to school. Aspen University offered the flexibility I needed to achieve my life long dream of earning a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice. I was also awarded a 7 percent raise from my current employer.
I am now officially a Aspen University graduate! I passed my final proctored exam and paid my graduation fee, so my degree is coming in the mail as I write this. Aspen University is a great school if you are a working adult. There are only discussion posts and homework assignments; there are no midterms and finals, which makes it great if you work full time and are raising a family. I have attended a lot of online universities, but Aspen was the best bar none. I received a promotion because of my degree. My employer didn't care of the name of the school, as long as it is a legit university; which Aspen is. I am going to now enroll in the Masters program in Education because---why not?! The school doesn't try to steal your money; financial aid was always honest with me and always disbursed my money when it was time. Thank you Aspen University! I'm so proud to be an alumni!
It worked for my budget and my goals. I recommend this university for anyone wanting to get an advanced degree in nursing. I am living my retirement plan of teaching nursing. Those who can do and those who are getting older must plan to teach. 250 characters.
Aspen University is a great choice for non-traditional students. Most of my classmates were like me and had earned an ADN many years prior to enrolling in BSN classes. I took two classes at a time and found that the workload was challenging yet manageable. I plan to pursue a MSN but will take one class at a time instead of two. My husband and I attended the 2017 commencement ceremony in Denver and found that it's an added bonus that Aspen is located in such an awesome city! We look forward to returning to Denver in 2019 for my MSN commencement.
I looked at a lot of different schools before choosing Aspen. The affordable tuition and the monthly payment option were what initially attracted me, but looking back the quality of support from the professors and advisers are what really made this a remarkable experience. I learned more than expected considering I already have been working in management for over 10 years. In almost all cases my professors would respond to me almost immediately and they would grade my work/ provide feedback right away. Some professors would even send personal audio recording files discussing my assignment. If you're looking for a quality online program at an affordable price I definitely would recommend Aspen University! I'm already seeing a return on my investment since my employer wanted to me to complete my bachelors.
I recommend Aspen University. I work for the Department of the Air Force as a program manager and need a variety of knowledge, skills, and abilities to perform my responsibilities. When started Aspen's MBA program, I already had a master of public administration (MPA) degree from the University of Oklahoma (OU) and was accustomed rigorous academics. The reason I started Aspen's MBA is because I wanted to learn subjects that I did not learn in my MPA program at OU, so the academics with Aspen didn't seem too difficult if I recall. A student just starting out taking masters level courses should be prepared for a LOT of reading and writing. But it's not so bad. Also, I have to say that I've successfully completed online classes with Liberty University and Oklahoma State University. My experience with Aspen University as an online university is right on par with those two nationally recognized universities. I am very satisfied with my experience with Aspen University.
Faculty at Aspen University are dedicated to each students success. There were numerous times when I needed to reach out to them and they were happy to assist me in a timely manner. Making a commitment to complete my master's degree was a decision that I contemplated for awhile before I chose a school. Having the flexibility of the online format certainly helped me to achieve my goal, especially because I work full time. It was also important for me to find an institution that was affordable and Aspen University made sense financially.
Aspen provided me with unlimited opportunities to be successful. I can unequivocally state that the experiences that I had cannot be replicated anywhere else. I could not have completed my degree in such a short time without going into debt without Aspen University. I will forever be grateful for the world of knowledge that I am walking away with. Every day was worth it.
I have been extremely pleased with the quality and affordability of the education that I have received. The Dean and instructors were excellent and supportive. I graduated with a 4.0 and worked hard for it, which I am grateful for. I highly recommend the program. I took a chance with an online program I knew nothing about but I am so happy that I did! I feel very well-prepared to enter academia as a nursing instructor. If you are willing to put forth the effort, work hard and perfect your writing skills (which is a huge part of the course assignments and capstone), then you should consider Aspen.
This was by far the most affordable school I found after months of research. Aspen accepted my transfer credits from my JC, which some schools did not. The monthly payment plan with no interest was a huge deciding factor for me, as well as only having to take classes directly related to my field in order to finish my BA after my transfer credits were accepted. From beginning to end, I was highly satisfied with my experience- the instructors I had were knowledgeable, and quick to clarify any assignment questions I had and fast in giving feedback. My academic advisor took good care of me as well when I had other types of questions. I would 100% recommend Aspen to my family and friends.
