Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Southern New Hampshire University worked with me to ensure that the majority of my credits received from other universities transferred and that I was on the most expeditious route to the degree I wanted as well as the concentration. I have attended other schools, including Ivy League and online, and SNHU was the most engaged with me and my future. You feel that they truly want you be successful, not just in school, but after graduation. The alumni association offers opportunities for career advancement and social interaction with others with similar educational backgrounds or professional aspirations. I would recommend SNHU to anyone but especially those nontraditional students hoping to pursue or finish their degree.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I am very glad I chose to attend Southern New Hampshire University. The cost was very affordable compared to other undergraduate schools and the quality of my education was outstanding. There were hundreds of courses to choose from that were all very interesting. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a large variety of courses to choose from along with a flexible online schedule.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

I very much enjoyed the education I received through SNHU. Their programs were easy to follow and instructors were always there to help answer any questions. I was able to finish my degree completely online and while battling breast cancer. I would absolutely recommend this school

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2020

Dont attend snhu because they tell lies and make false promises to you. Also the student advisors tell the wrong information and if you have a learning disability they play off of that. They don't offer the math often your looking for either and the director of the university tries to make choices for you. Also they don't answer the questions being asked by the students either. Again beware of snhu and go elsewhere for your education.

Degree: European History
Graduation Year: 2017

Southern New Hampshire University Online is a reputable, affordable, and convenient option for students that for one reason or another are unable to attend classes on campus. I elected to complete my degree online because I was working full time and my schedule was far too erratic to accommodate a regular college schedule. Even online students have access to the campus library which is an excellent feature that I don't think many online schools offer. If you put in a request for a book through the Shapiro Library website they will mail the books to you and all you need to do is mail them back before the due date. It was a feature that I utilized a lot when writing research papers for my classes. All of the instructors that I have had have been very attentive and personable. If you have a personal emergency that will prevent you from completing the course work they will work with you. At the beginning of one term I let my instructor know that I would be having my wisdom teeth removed right around the time that an important paper was going to be due. She was understanding and agreed to give me a couple of extra days to complete the coursework. If you want feedback on an assignment before submitting or have a question about an assignment every instructor I had was more than happy to provide feedback and answer any questions. I never had a bad instructor at SNHU. All of them wanted their students to succeed and helped me work on my weaknesses when it came to academics and improve on my strengths. I highly recommend SNHU Online to anyone that wants to go back to school but still has to maintain their daily responsibilities.

Degree: Teaching English or French as a Second or Foreign Language, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

I earned a master's degree in TEFL and a graduate certificate in Strategic Human Resources Management from SNHU, and I'm also currently pursuing an Ed.D. degree in Educational Leadership at this university as well. My whole experience has been thrilling; the university has a rigorous system of multi-layer support for students: relevant, high-quality and well-constructed curriculums, highly-skilled teachers, great staff, and fantastic advisors and other academic support resources. On top of that, it's led by Dr. Paul LeBlanc, the best president anyone can ask for, who is always ensuring the university is providing the finest, most innovative educational services for all students. SNHU has literally transformed my life for the better, and I trust it for preparing me to succeed both professionally and academically and to be able to solve real-world problems with the right experience and knowledge.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

SNHU was a great experience for my undergraduate studies. I attended for 2 years and completed my program in February, 2017. I really like the expedited terms and course formatting. It is hard work, but as soon as you feel burned out, you realize it's half over. It is very accommodating for a busy lifestyle. The professors are eager to see you succeed and will go out of there way to help you...if you're willing to help yourself. I see a lot of comments about their degree being worthless, but the bottom line is all education has value. Having a completed Bachelor Degree, on my resume, demonstrates my ability to commit, work hard, and meet goals. The advisors and support staff are excellent. I never once had to be on a waiting list, or found myself not enrolled in classed I needed. If I had concerns, they listened and planned according to my wishes and goals. The cost per unit is extremely reasonable! The $960.00 per class is nothing compared to UC costs of 468.00 per credit hour ($1404 per 3 credit class)!! I recommend this school to anyone!

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2019

I really enjoy going to the Southern New Hampshire University Online. This school is the only one that I have found that has the study program that I always wanted to do since I was in middle/high school. The people that works there are very nice and they work well with you.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2018

I'm in my third year at SNHU Online; and I've mostly had a positive experience. The curriculum varies quite a bit - as does the effort from instructors and classmates. Overall, I've had mostly competent instructors who did not use the "copy and paste" method when giving feedback. Make no mistake, this will not give you the same education you'd get in a brick and mortar school. The interaction with instructors and classmates are completely different. I do, however, enjoy it quite a bit because I find that I learn more with the online format. Theres less pressure and discussions can be easily researched in order to show competency. Like previous reviewers said, what you learn is what you put into it. I tend to go a bit further by reading more literature and watching instructional videos in order to have a better understanding of what Im studying. Most courses are moderately challenging with some level 100 courses being very easy. Labs, on the other hand, are a nightmare! SNHU really needs to figure this out. I took a biology lab that was rough. Its not that I didnt understand the concepts, its just that the experiments were poorly explained and never really turned out the way they should have. Some materials were limited (only have a few tries to get it right) or missing. Its not like a real lab where you have an instructor to walk you through the steps. Regardless, all of the other courses that I took were fine and didn't create the amount of stress that Bio did. You have a lot of freedom with SNHU Online You can cruise through and have a 3.0 GPA, but you probably wont learn much; or you can put in the effort and actually learn a decent amount more so than you might learn at a brick and mortar.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 1917

I was not happy with their Career Services - needed to talk to someone to get advice they called me and we scheduled appointment but they never called me back. Then a survey requiring feedback comes in where I addressed concerns but still no one called back. Basically Career Services do not do their jobs. I ended up consulting in different institutions about my choices. SNHU have multiple issues with the lab that is tacky and not user friendly. The advisor lucking customer service and act a bit relaxed about your priorities and luck experience in advising. Instructors are inconsistent with grading requirements and do not answer questions in enough depth. Advice: choose a local state schools so at least you can get local internships.
