Elmhurst College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
My experience when I enrolled into the very new online Public Health program I was beyond excited. Everything was going great; professors were very helpful when you needed them. Actually, all of the professors within the public health program has continued to be very helpful. You can tell they want their students to succeed in the course and in their future careers. I am at the very end of the program and I knew it was too good to be true. I'm having problems with my advisor who is also the program director. They decided to make changes to the program later on which I understand schools can do that but for future students. She is now trying to add additional courses to my schedule telling me these classes are mandatory for me to take even though these classes are not mentioned in the 2014 course catalog which is the year I enrolled into the program. So now she has decided to tell me ok I will make only 1 of the 3 classes mandatory and if you don't take it you can't take your practicum or your capstone. WTH??!! I'm beyond frustrated with this lady. If I didn't invest money, time, and effort I wouldn't even continue with the course. I have also ask her several times to give me general information about the practicum which she refuses to do. She states you will get that information when you enrolled in the course. That does not make any sense to me. You are going to give me details about the required internship that I am required to do when class STARTS. How logical is that? This is beyond unfair and unprofessional. I don't know how the other programs are at Elmhurst but stay away from the public health program. Spend your money on a school that is professional, organized, and willing to work with their GRADUATE students. If I could I would transfer and if I knew I was going to have to deal with this I would of registered elsewhere and not to mentioned this school is not cheap. If only I could go back in time. Also get everything in writing via email.
Elmhurst is a small school that has one of the best jazz programs in the country
