Degree: Business Administration, Management and Operations, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

I love CSU and the staff is wonderful. They have many great programs and support department to help students. These department includes student services, writing, and the math center. I find this support to be a great asset for CSU. I have attended a few on-line universities and CSU is the best experience I have ever had. Furthermore, they offer affordable tuition and this is AMAZING !!! I AM PROUD TO BE A "CSU STUDENT".

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2009

CSU classes were much tougher than the brick and mortar classes I'd become accustomed completing my undergraduate degrees. After completing my CSU MBA I was promoted to the top 1% of the military rank, and later retired and I continue to find even greater career success Fortune 500 companies. The education I received has been paramount to my success and I'm grateful for CSU's option of completing my degree at my pace. Thank you!

Degree: Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I have enjoyed my time at CSU. I am actually going to work towards my Masters degree with them as well. Don't get me wrong, there were times where I just wanted to walk away from my studies due to a professor not doing, what I felt, was right. 98% of my professors were awesome! I would recommend CSU to anyone interested in furthering their education. There is lots of reading, writing, and research so just prepared to work. The staff has been nothing but helpful and I look forward to working with them. FYI, CSU is a little slow on the disbursement of funds; I did not depend on them. Whenever they came it was just like a small treat in my bank account. Again, I have nothing negative to say!

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2015

This college is a joke, the financial aid department will ask you for documents you will never now they exist, also they will ask for transfer credits from whatever institution you study, even if you're not interesting in transfering credits. They will lose you time for weeks. This is not a military friendly school.DO NOT LOSE YOUR TIME

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2011

It was tremendous learning experience ever with CSU. Great professors and staff. They provided support indeed and contributed lots of their working and living experience to the contents that helped understanding easily new concepts and definitions. Our professional career and understanding enriched with many updated business cases and sharp analysis from professors. The MBA changed my life at all!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2013

I enjoyed this school. I had great advisors and professors. I was married shortly before graduation and needed my name changed. This way my name appeared correct on my transcripts to make it easier when applying for jobs. The first job I applied for after graduation, I got thanks to my degree! As far as those complaining about disbursement, don't count on student loan money. Work! I worked full time out of town 4 days per week while getting this degree.

Degree: Fire Science
Graduation Year: 2014

Great college! Columbia Southern gave me the opportunity to work, while I was in college. My hours are different than your typical 9 to 5 job, so I could complete assignments late at night, weekends, or early in the morning. The professors were encouraging and honest. This college was a wonderful experience for me.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I completed my degree at the age of 57. I am preparing to start the Masters program for Occupational Safety and Health. I started the bachelors program in 2010. This online program worked for me. It was challenging and informational. The support staff was of great help through out the process. Enjoy the challenge

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Great experience with CSU, especially after a negative experience with University of Phoenix. The tuition is very affordable compared to other online colleges and a fraction of that charged by UoP. My classes were much more challenging than what I experienced in the same program at UoP which seemed to be extremely team oriented and CSU was more focused on individual success. I am now considering returning for a Masters degree.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Instructors are very inconsistent. One instructor was extremely bias, would not return emails, made obvious errors in grading and the University would not make corrections. The administration surely must condone such action. I would definietly not choose Columbia Southern again, or at least Reed.
