Park University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (16)
I felt that Park was an extremely military friendly school. The staff at the local support officer were amazing at helping solve problems that came up. I was able to complete my degree in 4 years by taking online accelerated courses which I was able to schedule around deployments. The course that I took were challenging but easily doable for online courses. I was able to take 100 percent of the courses I needed online which was a big plus for me. The only drawback that I had was that some of the networking courses that I took might have benefited more from going to an actual class where you are able to have hands on experience with the equipment.
Park University is an excellent, small college. The class sizes are nice sized and the professors are knowledgeable. I liked that there was diversity of age at Park. The campus is beautiful and makes you feel at home. Overall, I would recommend Park to anyone looking for a great college.
I am a single mother and I work a full-time job. Park University allowed me to take all of my classes for both my bachelor's and master's degrees online. All of my instructors have been great. When I've needed assistance, whether it was from the financial aide office. from an advisor, or from an instructor, everyone that I spoke to was willing to help. Attending Park University was a great choice.
Loved the time I spent at Park pursuing my undergrad degree. Professors were very professional and helpful. Curriculum was tough, but by setting aside special study time, you can easily get assignments and discussions in on time. Financial aid was pretty good to work with, but be prepared to wait almost a week and a half on refunds. All in all, Park is a great institution, and I've referred several people to the online program.
Going to Park University at the satellite campus on the military base in California-Camp Pendleton was a great experience. I have used my degree in all aspects of life from work, interviews, relationships, friendships, to meeting strangers. Having a social psychology degree has helped me understand individuals and avoid conflicts. Learning about mental diseases in my studies at Park University has helped me talk to military personnel suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD). My degree has been used and will be used continuously throughout my future.
Completed my bachelor's in Criminal Justice Security from Park in 2014. Very challenging and their was a lot of writing involved. The school also required an internship, which I was afforded the opportunity by Command Officer. Loved Park experience so much that I chose to enroll in the MBA program. The MBA program consists of many challenging projects for each class. Park University has improved my writing, reading, and communication skills. Additionally, because of the MBA program, I have vastly improved my Microsoft Excel skills too. Military friendly and a legitimate traditional brick and mortar school that does not carry the poor reputation of Ashford and UOP.
Park University was a great way for me to continue my education and complete my B.S. Business MGMT/ Healthcare Admin degree. The night and online classes allowed me to work full time and attend school full time. The 8 week terms allowed me to complete the degree in the standard 4 years. Without this flexibility and accelerated classes, it would have took me much longer to complete the degree. The counselors were there always to guide me through my degree. The classes were challenging and educational. Park University offers a variety of degrees which allowed me to really pursue what I wanted to go to school for. Since completely my degree, I've promoted at work and received a significant increase in compensation. Without Park University, I would not have been able to nearly as successful in accomplishing my bachelor's degree. I would highly recommend this school... so much that I am going back for my MBA!
I transferred to Park after completing my Associates degree at Truckee Meadows community college in 2013. I took all of my classes online with the exception of the proctored exams until Park stopped requiring proctored exams late 2014 or early 2016. They also dropped the requirement for the Writing Competency test recently. I thought that overall the courses were challenging and set me up to start my Masters Program. The financial aid process was a little slower that I was used to at Truckee Meadows. I am in the military, so I used TA with loans when my TA ran out (I am saving my GI Bill for my daughter). Overall, I had a pleasant experience and would recommend to friends and family who are seeking to further their education while holding down full time jobs. It is challenging and will require a great deal of time and sleepless nights studying, but in the end it is rewarding accomplishing your goals. Initially I was bias on online education, but iI believe it was more challenging because it is all on you to not procrastinate and complete your assignments on time.
The school and community created within my degree program was just what I needed in my college career. The environment is welcoming and the teachers are helpful. I have to say though their financial aid office is VERY poor. I got different answers in the same day to one simple question. I sent an email that same day inquiring about the difference and it has been days with no response. It seems as if no one in the financial aid department has been trained adequately or know that they are in a service field to Park Universities students. I am not one to review things but the way the financial aid department has handled and spoke on my questions is concerning when they are the ones who are handling my funds for school. Overall happy with all aspects of Park but their financial aid department really is a problem and I wish someone would get around to addressing it.
I fully recommend this school. It is nationally accredited and it is a real university. The curriculum is excellent and the teachers are invested in the process. I had a great learning experience while attending this school. It also allowed me to travel.
