Degree: Electronics
Graduation Year: 2006

If you're looking for a degree in electrical technology/engineering, don't waste your time and just go the electrical engineering route at Purdue or Rose Hulman. Yes, it's expensive but let me tell you my experience and where i'm at today 11 years after graduating with a degree in electronics and computer technology. This degree that ISU is a non-ABET (Accredidation board for engineering and technology) accredited program. This accredidation years ago was not required to have but unfortunately by tighter regulations set forth by the government, and companies affraid to get sued, having this accredited degree has become the trend. This accredidation is extremely important! You might hear that "ABET accredidation is only applicable to engineers." This is not true. I've been in the field for 11 years now and i can't even remember how many jobs I was denied because my degree isn't ABET and it didn't even matter or not if the job was or wasn't an engineering position. You can go down the street and get the same degree that's ABET accredited from DeVry but if you later want a PE license and become a professional licensed engineer most states won't approve DeVry even that it's ABET. Here's another interesting fact. Now listen to this important piece of information. If you decide to pursue this degree or if you already have one, the only way to ever obtain an ABET accredidation is to repeat the degree through an ABET accredited program; a masters in engineering does not supplement a degree from ISU to recieve ABET accredidation because a masters degree is not technical learning like an ABET undergraduate program. How do I know this you might ask? I've been in pursuit of a PE license and have talked to 4 universities and they've all reviewed my transcripts and say the same thing; "To achieve ABET you need the undergraduate program, because the masters program is not ABET." Experience usually allows one to prepare and take the exam to obtain a license but not anymore. I'm looking to redo my undergraduate degree, not solely for a PE but the ABET accredidation. I feel ISU has ripped me off for my $50k i'm still paying for, not entirely but why were students entering the program not educated on this. Some friends and I found this out our senior year and it was purely disappointing. This program still isn't ABET. It's accredited by some accredidation employers don't give a rats a** about. If you're not ABET, engineering or technology, you're wasting your time and money at ISU's electrical program. If someone tells you it is and you're not sure, go to the ABET website and you can find out by state and university which programs at the school are ABET. If you don't see it, it's not ABET. I hope this helps

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

From the moment I set foot on the Indiana University campus, I was swept up in the magic that is Indiana University. The teachers were reliable, supportive and willing to help. The opportunities were readily available for those willing to seek them out. I would highly recommend pursuing a degree at Indiana University.

Degree: East Asian Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Indiana University has a variety of useful sources to promote both educational and personal growth. Unfortunately, I was unable to utilize them while attending due to the lack of introduction to the educational system. I felt shuffled in and lost in a crowd of students. My advisers did the bare minimum to keep me on a vague degree track. Without parents or guardians to guide me, I felt like I had never been taught or given expectations of how to properly utilize the classes to create a useful career path (such as which degrees were popular and growing or which degrees did not have a demand).I know now how much potential Indiana University would have had for my career if I had only known what to do.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017

I love Indiana State University and highly recommend ISU to anyone looking to further their education. The curriculum has been challenging and the faculty is extremely professional and helpful. I completed a large portion of the degree online and the ability to watch lectures and complete the same course work of in class students has been a blessing!

Degree: Criminology
Graduation Year: 2012

I really enjoyed most everything about attending ISU online. The only issue I had was with financial aid. It was a little bit difficult to get the information I needed. Other than that I learned a lot through the online classes and it helped me grow as a person.

Degree: Optometry
Graduation Year: 2012

I loved the college town atmosphere and the small campus. The class sizes were small and I loved the one on one attention. However, the out of state tuition for me was quite expensive compared to my current professional earnings.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Having gone through my early education on campus, I was a little reserved about attending classes online. I was worried the quality of the classes offered wouldn't compare to classes on campus. I was pleasantly surprised to find the instructors accessible, the classes challenging, and the ease of enrolling and accessing material high. I was gladly refer anyone seeking a flexible school curriculum to Indiana State University.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2014

The campus is small enough to feel welcome and not overwhelmed, but big enough to give you a sense of adventure. You can make your college career exactly what you want- focused and driven with no community engagement, or become involved in campus life completely. My program was small, but all of my teachers were wonderful and really cared about me as a student.
