Saint Leo University Online Reviews
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.
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.
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!
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
I''ve been attending Saint Leo off and on for several years, had a few financial aid situations that kept me out of school for almost 2. years. However, I pressed on and was Alberto get back in school in 2012, working fulltime , wife and mother, I was only able to take 1 class a semester. Let me tell you, it was not easy, and there were one or two Professor's that were not the best, but for the majority of my time spent was awesome. Even though it was online, it never felt like an online classroom, it was a tough, but rewarding program. The only regret, I have is that they have no online Master's in psychology program!
I found the online courses to be more challenging and rewarding than most of the classes I did face to face in other institutions. The professors were very knowledgeable and helpful. Be forewarned, don't think you will coast through this. It is a lot of work. I flew in from Texas for the COL's graduation ceremony. I was surrounded by members of the military or their spouses who were furthering their education. The reception held afterwards by the COL was a nice touch with live music, food and fellowship with other COL students. I am glad I completed my degree "at" Saint Leo University!
Saint Leo University does not help their students once they are completed with the degrees. I completed my MBA in Health Care Administration and yet nobody will call me in for an interview nor am I qualified for basic position within a health care field. Everyone says I need to get my certification but Saint Leo does not help their students get certifications, the left me worst off then when i started and a big debt. My suggestion, dont go to this school, talk to the employer you are seeking and ask for advice of what and where to go.
I have taken a mixture of online and face to face courses from surrounding local community colleges. Many think that online coursework is easier, and that was true where I had attended previously, however, this is not the case at Saint Leo. Taking two classes every 8 weeks is a lot of work here, so be prepared to set aside a good amount of time each week for your class(es). I spend many hours studying and doing each assignment in between time off from working full time. The instructors are pretty good here, and they respond quickly and are very attentive to each students needs. The coursework can be fairly challenging at times, and I feel even though everything's done online, I am still learning and retaining a lot of information. I can't say the same about other academic institutions I've previously attended. Overall, I believe that this is a great school.
They try and instill these core values into its students, but the individuals I dealt with have obviously NEVER looked at these core values a day in their lives, shame, your hard work and dedication means nothing because you are just a student.
This is the best school I have attended between my Masters and Bachelors. My coursework was extremely challenging; however, I will never forget what I learned here! I especially like the fact that this school is a Catholic college; however, we had to study the three major world religions and form our own opinion. My philosophy course was one of my favorites as the professor challenge me to lean on my own understanding of how our minds work. He challenged me to really think. This technique helped me in other courses! Some of the professors here can be snooty; however, I had to realize they just know their crafts well.
