What an excellent educational experience! I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at SNHU. Excellent faculty and staff. I felt I received the education I deserved. Best online program. I am glad I made the switch from U of Phoenix.

I was a college dropout and I was working 2 jobs just to be broke by the end of the month. SNHU has made it possible for me to work and get my college degree. I love SNHU. The people are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Financial aid paid for my education. I loved my SNHU experience and I recommend it to anyone!

SNHU is a tier 1 ranked university. Regionally accredited and awarded special accreditation (European), which is rare for an American base university. Beautiful campus. Great sports teams. Also, SNHU has beautiful dorms. Many of the professors at SNHU graduated from prestigious universities such as Harvard,Yale, etc. SNHU has many students who graduated from upscale universities. Harvard University and other upscale universities hires SNHU graduates to teach. SNHU course work is difficult. THIS UNIVERSITY IS NOT A DIPLOMA MILL LIKE CAPELLA OR UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX. SNHU IS AN ACTUAL UNIVERSITY. IT IS A BRICK-AND-MORTAR UNIVERSITY THAT OFFERS ONLINE PROGRAMS. I graduated from FSU, which is a state university in Florida. I had such a terrible experience. After I graduated with my BA, I applied to John Hopkins University and got accepted into their Advance Academic Program in Applied Economics (online). Like John Hopkins University, FSU treats students like numbers and price tags. Fees at FSU were OUTRAGES! John Hopkins was worst! I spent about $8,000 (rough estimation) in two courses alone...which I regret. The course work at SNHU is 10 tens more difficult than at John Hopkins. John Hopkins is a prestigious university, but their online programs are terrible and expensive. Sorry. Applying to SNHU has been the greatest thing that I have ever done since graduating from Miami-Dade College with my Associates of Arts. The course work is difficult, but you learn from hands-on faculty members. SNHU career services is incredible. I am proud to be a SNHU graduate student. One of the best schools in the country. I really dislike students who insult SNHU, especailly when they compare us to schools like Capella, UoP, Ashford, etc. SNHU has a great reputation and SNHU is a private university in NH. The problem is that students are lazy and want a free ride. Whether college maybe online or on campus, YOU HAVE TO STUDY!!!! Not all professors are good. And that applies to universities like Harvard, FSU, UM, FIU, FAU, MDC, UND, and etc. Every university has their pros and cons. I can give you a list of over 200 cons regarding FSU's programs, faculty, and campus. FSU is a joke and the students attending only care about getting drunk, and about 50% of the professors are extremely arrogant. In addition, the university is in the middle of no where! After graduating from FSU and attending John Hopkins University for 1 semester, SNHU saved me.

I can't help but notice as I'm reading reviews of this school that this post is word for word also posted on yelp.com but under a completely different user name. The dates for the posts are only one day apart. Is this a real review or a sales pitch?

Nope. I copy and paste my review on 3 websites. I was tired of reading bad reviews. I have like a dozen emails n user names. I do that to avoid getting my account hacked.

My other username is Al G. I actually wrote reviews on over 8 different websites.

Sales pitch? If I was getting paid, I would have been rich by now. I am just a student trying to defend SNHU rep. People are jerks. I have attended several colleges (state and private). SNHU has been the best school so far. Trust me dude. This is the real deal.

And for the record, SNHU don't give sales pitches. Duke University gives sales pitches. An MBA at Duke will cost $140,000. That's a sales pitch. Capella and UoP gives the pitch but not SNHU.

After FSU, I didn't even think twice of enrolling at one of their

Grad programs. In fact, I am going to write a negative review for FSU. That school should close down.

This is all very good to hear. I heard of SNHU in a video I was watching on Lynda.com and thought it was too good to be true, so I set out to read every review I can find to make sure the online degree is the real deal that you can actually get a job with, not some kind of Devry or ITT Tech sort of diploma mill. I'm just paranoid at this point since there are so many scams out there so it was easy for me to see the exact same review word for word on two different sites by two different user names and assume that SNHU put them up themselves.

Michigan Flint University has good grad programs online. So does UND.

I spent 2 months looking for an online grad program, and believe me, I am also paranoid. Avoid ITT Tech, Capella, UoP, etc.

John Hopkins Advanced Academic Programs aren't worth the price. SNHU is a good university.

SNHU is a private not-for-it brick and mortar university that offers online programs. Fully accredited and reputable.

Colorado State offers good grad programs online too. First check out some state universities. I already graduated from a state university with a BA so I decided to go to a private university, especially due to size. I personally prefer smaller class rooms. You learn more.

Great classmates and professors

I love this new online college- If you are online and dissatisfied- look around! I was drowning at the old one- bored and miserable- the people- including professors-were only going for a piece of paper or paycheck. I just assumed online was like that everywhere! Not so! My new college has forums for each major and most students are really engaging in the DB's! The professor I have currently is actually READING our work and giving REAL feedback- after three years of misery, I am finally excited to do my work. I hope that this helps others who are one the other end of a computer staring numbly at there classes and counting them down! There is hope out there- look around! Thank you SNHU

Like several other reviewers, I've attended a number of Online Universities since 2006. I earned my AA at UOPX and my BA at Ashford. Spent some time at Northcentral and Purdue working on my masters. Hands down SNHU is the best! Challenging. Relevant. Engaged instructors. Helpful staff. I worked in a remote village in India during the Winter 2014 term. The technology folks were fantastic especially considering we could only communicate using chat mode.

I had done a lot of research prior to selecting SNHU. In the end, I am very happy with the choice I made. SNHU was extremely helpful from the get-go, and not pushy in getting me to enroll. I had several credits transfer from a local technical college, which I was happy with. My advisor is really helpful, and the instructors have been great. There are some tough courses and it does take some self-motivation to stay active in your coursework, but that is true for any school. I have recommended SNHU to several friends and colleagues. Also, I am not in the military, but I know that several classmates have made mention to how SNHU is very military-friendly school. If you lead a busy life like I do and are looking to squeeze in a degree, SNHU is a good fit.

I called SNHU because their commercial actually sounded like they wanted to help. I currently have 56shrs from my previous accredited university. I currently do not have the time to attend a regular classroom environment cause of work. SNHU told me they could only take 30shrs and the others I would have to redo through SNHU. Helping the military or looking out for your needs is BS!

The restriction in transfer credits from other schools is not limited to just SNHU. All schools will give you the same result. I feel you expectation are unfair if you expect to just jump into a transfer with your degree halfway complete.

You have to be stern with their credit evaluations. They tried to say I needed to re-take another English 102 because Alabama's curriculum was different. I told them I was not going to go there unless they accepted that course for my transfer credit and that I will never take another English. Got a call less than an hour later stating they'd accept it.

They are actually very good with military. I'm active duty and they lowered the rates substantially.

Excellant Program

SNHU is an excellent program to be able to do at home, online. It is some of the best classes I have taken, alongside with some of the most difficult. The instruction and interaction is much better than some of the online programs I have done.

I am 3 terms away from my BA in Psychology. I have attended several other schools after high school, as its taken about 12 years to complete my degree. I find the professors to all be very knowledgeable in their field and can give real world advice/information in most cases. Most of the professors have their doctorate, some are finishing it up. I've had a couple issues come up and after emailing the professor it was easily resolved. They are caring. I have had one advisor change, but that was because I needed a military advisor not just a general one. Anytime I have questions or need help with enrolling or choosing classes she is more than helpful. She has called to check on me, emailed to follow up when I was sick to see if was better, to make sure I got connected to the person I needed that she gave the information for and more. I've never had an issue with her! I've had good luck with financial aid and never a lag or anything on it either. I have recommended this school to others, and I will continue to do so. I enjoy the set up of the classes and how easy it is to see what I need to do and turn in. I've learned quite a bit already, and much that can be related to everyday as well. I've never once felt like a number, but an actual person to them. Call them and check them out.

Why did it take so long for you to graduate?

Gaybreal- it took that long due to life happening. I went originally after high school then helping out family caused me to take a break. I then got a job and met my husband. When he deployed I started again. Then caring for my grandma and her death and his homecoming I took another break. Shortly after coming home he was diagnosed with Leukemia. I cared for him until his death. Two years later I had my son and finally got the courage. After my best friends death I knew I had too finish. Life happens and I needed to prove to my son that no matter what happens you can still reach your dreams. So here I am, weeks from graduating finally.

Awww I'm so sorry all that has happened..I am so happy to hear the happy ending! CONGRATULATIONS you should be Very proud!.. I was asking because I am pretty nervous about going back. I got accepted into the Child Development Bachelor's program so I will start soon. I have never been online before nor have I been to school aside from cna since high school graduation in 2004. I have been a little bit on edge not knowing how hard this all will be or even how the workload will be..I seen they have a low graduation rate about 51% so When I read 12 years I thought "OH GEEEEE THIS ISSSSSS GOOIINNGGG TOO BEE EXACTLY HOW I IMAGINED! But I am glad this wasn't the case..how was the workload? Is it really do able?

Ah yea it won't take that long if stay steady. I go online and take two classes per term. If you set a schedule and pay attention to syllabus and each weeks work (I usually verify what's due through the grade book) you'll be good. Initial discussions are usually due by midnight est Thursday and each week starts on Monday. Helps you plan. If you have questions on assignments ask for clarity. It helps and professors I've had want you to succeed!

Quit school shopping and call SNHU

I had to write a review because of the one star review which I thought was unfair. I have been around the proverbial block with online schools. I have audited or enrolled and withdrew within the refund period of about seven online schools and have attended my local university in a traditional setting. I have found the staff at SNHU to be the absolute best when it comes to dealing with the students. All of my academic advisors have been spot on and caring and have gone out of their way to answer any questions I may have about my program. The Financial Aid department is knowledgeable and answers inquiries quickly. The quality of my classes are good and I feel that I am getting a lot out of my education, especially given the very reasonable non-profit pricing. I have recommended the school to friends and family and the couple of them that have enrolled are also extremely pleased. Sure, I have had a couple professors that weren't great, but what school doesn't have those? For the most part my professors have been world-class, knowledgeable, and willing to answer questions and help. I'm glad I enrolled here and if I were you, quit window shopping for schools and call SNHU.
