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.

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.

What other schools have you tried attending? Can you provide any insight on these schools? I would like to avoid any headaches. Thank you in advance.

Last year (2012), I completed my studies at Rasmussen college as a Pharmacy Technician. I transferred from that school because an overwhelming majority of interactions that I had with the school staff, were rude and snobbish. I am respectful myself, not to come from that place. I chose SNHU as the college I wanted to continue my education in the healthcare industry. In two years, after I complete my B.S., I plan to continue on with my academia, and pursue my Masters.

Tell us about your college experience.

My school is a good fit for me as I could not find any online writing schools that were not specifically focused on journalism. I wanted a creative writing degree and it is difficult to find a school that focuses on this particular subject. I am elated that I found this school.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes, I would pursue the same degree as writing is a passion of mine and is very therapeutic as well since I am disable and cannot attend the traditional on-campus courses.

What advice can you offer other students?

Make sure you make yourself marketable and take a variety of courses.

The online students are a number to them. They treated me as though they had a dollar amount they needed to reach. I had to stay on them about bringing in credits for classes I'd taken at Cal State University as they were attempting to hide those classes in an attempt to make me take them with them. They delayed informing me of information about things such as Credit for Prior Learning options until it was too late. My advice would be NOT to attend; If you need a challenge, PLEASE keep ALL emails and don't speak too much with them on the phone! They will change the details of the conversation to fit their needs to make as much $$ as they can. Also, if you start to have issues and challenges with your "Adviser", request a change IMMEDIATELY! The person they assigned me to was so inexperienced that she'd lie, out of ignorance, find out the correct answer to my question later, and come back and say she didn't say what she said earlier! PLEASE BE CAREFUL with this school!
