Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2011

I have to say that St. Leo University is a serious college. I took classes while I was still on active duty. Sometimes when I went to some of my advanced NCO courses, fellow soldiers would see that I was studying during breaks. More than one said that they stopped going to St Leo because it was "serious". In other words, it wasn't just for signing up, paying your fees and getting an easy grade; definitely not a "diploma mill". If you take your academics seriously, definitely attend. I am proud to say that I am SLU alumni! Note***Most of the military courses that I attended, if I wasn't "Honor Grad", I was in the top 3, so studying and taking tests are something I take seriously.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Saint Leo online was a great option for me. I am a full-time teacher, full-time mom, and full-time student. Saint Leo online worked with me and provided an opportunity that I would not have been able to have unless classes were offered online. I was able to juggle it all and the professors were exceptional. My learning was of their utmost importance. I am grateful for the education and support that I received through Saint Leo.

Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2016

Worst School ever. Granted the instructors on ground were great. As soon as you move to online instructors they turn to shit. I will never tell where I graduated from if I can help it. Horrible experience will not be attending for graduate studies after my last term.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

Fantastic University with phenomenal faculty. I would recommend St. Leo to anyone who was seeking to return to school to complete a graduate degree. Everyone has been extremely helpful on this journey. I have been to the University of West Florida, Valencia Community College, and University of Central Florida and there has never been a more family oriented educational facility.

Degree: Management Information Systems, General
Graduation Year: 2016

I am deeply shocked by most of the reviews on here. What school did these individuals go to? I am nearly done with my MBA with a focus in Information Security Management and I couldn't be happier with my entire experience. Some reviewers have stated that Saint Leo "makes" you retake classes (like Finance and Accounting) over and over again before you pass. Um, duh! If you don't pass, why would you be shocked at having to retake the course? Unfortunately, some of us have a knack for these type of classes and others don't. I have been taking a double course load in this program while working a full-time job and have not had to retake a single course. It's all about hard work and dedication--priorities, really. What you make a priority will become a reality! You will not be handed a degree at Saint Leo! It takes hard work and perseverance to get that coveted degree and I am happy to say I have nearly made it! With only 3 classes left to go, I can truly say I am satisfied with my experience and cannot wait to graduate. It seems most of the reviewers on here just don't have what it takes to be in grad school or an undergraduate program. Stop complaining and start doing what it takes to EARN your degree! I can guarantee those same complainers will be the individuals I end up in charge of in a few years and I will have no sympathy. You get out of it what you put into it. Period.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

Saint Leo University was the biggest nightmare and scandal of them all. I have attended GCU and 2 other community colleges in the past and never have I had such a poor experience. The Financial Aid representatives were disgraceful. I was told many different stories by many different representatives. I was told one thing, and then forced to do another. They lost my paperwork, so I had to expedite all my paperwork again, at my expense. I paid nearly $100 in expedited shipping, to fix their mistake. Once I got all the paperwork taken care of and finished the class, I was hit with a very large outstanding balance that I was told would be covered by my FA. I would not recommend this University to my worst enemy. The staff is careless and does NOT have the student's best interest in mind. The counselors I dealt with acted as if I was just another number on a spreadsheet. I felt scammed and disrespected by nearly every St. Leo employee I dealt with. They all made it seem like I was misinformed yet not a one was willing or "able" to help me. I was finally able to get my situation taken care of, only to find my husband, a military member, in nearly the same situation as me. I am disappointed and utterly disgusted with Saint Leo.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I am posting this for any other reason than to let my fellow colleagues know the truth. I have a few more classes left before I get my MBA and you cannot find ONE Marketing class on ground. Professors are scarce and people are loosing hope in you Saint Leo University. I am a federal government worker and mother. I told everyone who's even thinking about going back to school please do not go to SLU (military and federal workers & young graduates who're looking for a good school). I am so upset and disappointed with SLU. Such of waste of time and money.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2013

I had a great experience with St Leo online learning. I was on AD when I obtained my degree and I had very understanding instructors. There was maybe one or two teachers that weren't as responsive as I would like. However; overall I enjoyed my time as a student there. I'm now enrolled for my masters program with them.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

I took most of my classes online and some on campus. I can honesty say attending on campus is a lot better than endless emails, some take longer to respond. than others. My adviser stop contacting me as soon as she realized I didn't need to much assistant but, when I needed her, it was like pulling tooth to get her to call me back. I enjoyed my experience at SLU. The only downside is the financial aid department, they suck!

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I just completed my first term at Saint Leo, and so far it has been a GREAT experience. Financial aid was pretty easy, and they were available anytime I had questions. My student advisor is the best. He help me register for class, being that this was my first time attending school online, he walked me through the process and checked on me throughout the term to see how I was doing. My instructors were great! I am looking forward to finishing my degree with Saint Leo. Attending school online is not a walk in the park, it requires dedication and determination. I learn that after completing one term. Someone is always should you have any questions or concern regarding the learning experience at of St. Leo University
