Absolutely terrible. I am extremely disappointed. If you're looking for a school where you can "pay" for your degree, this is the school for you. I literally wrote "Are you even reading this?" on my final paper and got 100%. Unbelievable. I will not be continuing my studies here.

Even online the instructors are helpful and there for you when needed. They offer times for class to meet in live chats as well as offering assistance through questions on discussion boards. Tutoring is also available through a live chat line. The only issue is with financial assistance and getting the VOCREB posted in order to get supplies for school. This is the third week of class and still hasn't posted so don't depend on that for essentials need from your financial aid refund, as they take it first then reimburse you after VOCREHAB posts.

Great School

I have felt more than challenged. My program meets as a cohort with some online work as well. I took the FELE with about a year of studies left and passed it on the first attempt. There is a lot of work - reading and writing. Some will say that the work is unnecessary however it is part of getting the degree as well as required by the state. I feel that I am more than ready to take on my next position.

Ok, Let me first say I started and stopped Saint Leo three times for personal reasons and there wasn't any issues with re-starting the MBA program. Oh, yeah I received my undergrad with Saint Leo as well. There was some issues with instructors--that were addressed, my last course the students were rude and the instructor addressed as well. I had some issues with the accounting--(math) courses that were required online and the instructor was again helpful. Overall I was very excited about completion--and graduation--which I was able to do twice. I am currently waiting on the online Phd program. Bring it on!!!!!!!!!!

I was able to finish my BA in psychology at Saint Leo in a year and a half by the ability to double up on classes and complete coursework anywhere. While this is a huge benefit to the school, getting my classes paid for has been a nightmare. I tried both types of federal loans, subsidized and unsubsidized, and they sent the check I needed to sign and return to another student located in a completely different state. I tried private student loans and am still trying to get that fixed, even though my account was cleared with a zero balance for graduation, 3 months ago! While the curriculum itself is okay, the financial aid department has completely spoiled my outlook of this school and their organization.

PLEASE DON'T SETTLE FOR SAINT LEO!

No support! Financial aid is a serious joke. Triple charges for a sub-par education. You will basically teach yourself! Do not try to get support from the center Director, (unless you are one of the few "preferred" students) no return calls and one liner returned emails stating "I will get back with you" which never happens. AVOID the Gainesville Florida campus at all cost-they do not have their programs, support staff, and instructors together!!! Basically, not worth the thousands of dollars you will pay for this school. You will not be supported as a student. Student clubs and organizations---other than the psych club are non functioning. Want to be taken for a ride, treated as if your worth is strictly for their financial gain,(at least they don't hide this fact, well after a year or so of attendance) bogus financial charges, unnecessary multiple same content classes, and an entire financial aid program without a SINGLE competent person on staff, then this is the school for you. Oh yeah, and you will still have to pay back the $40^ tuition cost for qualification for eh, say, maybe management at a fast food joint. Oh, and one more thing, the ONE thing you will absolutely learn for sure is their ideal of "core values" because it will be drilled into your head (CULT like) with EVERY ASSIGNMENT. Sad that most of them do not adhere to their own overstated value system which was probably written to attract unsuspecting and clueless potentials. But it looks pretty good in writing anyway. And, you know what they say about "looks". Never thought I would say this but it really is great to be a Florida Gator after experiencing all of the above!

Excellent University!

I have been attending Saint Leo for over two years now. I have about 10 months to go and I will have my BA in Human Resource Management. Let me say first, that I have always been taken care of by the administration, staff, etc. I have always been able to rely on them for answers to my questions. If there was an issue, I would shoot an email and get a response/solution the next day, if not sooner. No problems with financial aid, or anything else logistically. As far as the education quality, I found myself challenged from time to time, and the course work was perfect. Although some were easier than others, the courses always demanded at least 20-25 hours a week for me to complete. When you consider the reading, assignments, papers, exams, discussions/replies, I feel that you get a convenient experience without sacrificing quality. I have EARNED my degree, and encourage all to do the same. The instructors were always helpful, and some graded harder than others. That's ok, however. I a proud to have been a part of this university, and look forward to being a part of its alumni. So if you are a parent, working full time and cannot afford to quit your job, Saint Leo will take care of you. They are NOT a diploma mill!

Attended this University at a satellite military campus at Fort McPherson and Fort Gillem, Georgia. A cadaver could pass these classes. Although some instructors (albeit very few) were excellent, others did not challenge the students at all, although I am sure that many of these students feel they were really challenged and felt that they had earned their degrees. This proves that anyone can get a degree. I was so disgusted by it all, I did not attend graduation -- I was the class valedictorian! In a capstone class given by a (cough, wheeze) doctoral candidate, we all received A's on a final, which we never even took. Many or most of the students were government employees of one sort or another -- just gives credence to the term "mechanical claw" degree. Even the school's director at the time told me that the courses were dumbed down. Make better use of your money and go to another school

I am enrolled in St. Leo's Accounting program. I have found the staff supportive beyond the wildest dreams. The course work is challenging, but I am able to choose when and where I can study. The program is semester hours and not quarter hours, so compare apples to apples and not apples to oranges. Anytime you are in an institution that has 17,000 plus students there is bound to me a hiccup or two. At least it's not 50,000 or 60,000 like U of F or Florida State. I have had a hiccup getting a few things initiated and resolved, but I am in charge of my destiny and make sure that I follow-up just like anything else in life. If you need hand holding or the physical brick and mortars than perhaps no on-line school is for you. They have a good reputation and they are one of the 5 largest Catholic Universities in the World. My experience has been pleasant thus far. I know I will be challenged and I am up for it. Go for it! St. Leo is awesome
