Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

I really can't understand why there are negative views. Anyways maybe people that have problems with a school are not cut out for online school. This isn't high school it's college. I have nothing but good things to say. The instructors are there to help you when needed. I'm still enrolled and satisfied.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2017

I really love this school. I believe it has bad reviews because people expect too much. But, we have to remember its college AND some degrees are online. It is NOT high school. You have to work hard. Online classes are designed for YOU to do all the work and the professors to answer your questions. It is NOT like a course where the professor will hold your hand through every single assignment.

Degree: Cyber Security
Graduation Year: 2018

Granted, I am just beginning this program, but having achieved a Master's degree and working on my Doctoral degree at another institution, I can say that SNHU is a very good school. I know it has its problems, but all schools have problems. The bulk of the negative replies I see are references to one teacher where a student takes one incident and tries to apply it to the entire school. This is childish at best. I think that before someone commits to an educational path, he or she should consider the pros and the cons of the deal. In addition, many people who have problems seem to believe they would not have these issues at a brick and mortar school, the truth is they would have the exact same problems.

Degree: Management Information Systems, General
Graduation Year: 2016

At the start, the school seemed really helpful with some great advisers and a great career center, however, that changed fast. First if you are interested in programming or information systems do not go here, this school throws you into java programming without any pre-reqs in syntax or html.... which ultimately leaves you having no clue what's going on. The textbooks dealing with technology and programming languages does not even talk talk about the material needed to program the simple assignments. Instructors in management and economics are very rude, do not respond to emails, and rarely participate in class discussion boards. I emailed a prof. asking them to go over course material and pay attention to discussion boards which are there to ask questions (which he did not), he replied with a random response to a past project giving no feedback at all, I simply asked him to please instruct us. What I got in return was a letter from the dean telling me I was violating a school code and to refrain from emailing my instructor and to relay all concern to advising and not a instructor otherwise I would be put on academic and behavior probation. These instructors are horrible and do not help, the programs are structured horribly, and the tutoring department are out sourced over seas and do not understand English easily. The only good part of the school is that the advisors are amazingly nice.

Degree: Web Development
Graduation Year: 2016

This online program started okay, then took a hard turn for the worse. Started with a paper, which I scored well on, but then the computer program for week two did not function. I tried to figure it out on my own but after 6 hours finally gave up. I brought up the issue and was told I should have clicked on the help button on the program as if I did not try that in the 6 hours of trying to get it to work. Was also told the course modules had adequate materials. No lessons at all. I couldn't have been more disappointed in a course. Wasted time on discussion boards with make believe scenarios instead of actually learning anything.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2014

I previously graduated from a local school with my bachelor's degree. I decided to go to SNHU for my Master's and I wanted to do it online. I must say I was impressed. The online tools are exceptional. Each course is of course unique based on the instructor. Overall it was great. My student advisor was helpful and always available. The price was fair. The regional accreditation is the highest there is. All these are reasons I chose to go there. I'd do it again.

Degree: Operations Management and Supervision
Graduation Year: 2018

I have read mostly the negative reviews, and I have to say that the experiences described there have not been mine. What I really find frustrating in the reviews are the people in their first year complaining that it is the worst college ever, or the people in their last year rating it really low based on a single class. I have had all the resources I need to succeed in class. If you need more than is offered, perhaps online learning is not for you.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm currently a student at SNHU and I love it. I was nervous at first, because I had not tried online classes before but this has been so much better for my lifestyle. I've been with this school for a year now and the advisors are very helpful as well as the instructors. Most of my instructors have been professionals in the field they are teaching and have had a wealth of experience and knowledge, in fact I still keep up with some of my old instructors for advice. They advisors will call you very often to check on you and assist when needed. I just love this school.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

One of the worst colleges on the planet. Be very aware that this school uses an automated platform in which the so-called "instructor" of the class is actually a facilitator of electronic paperwork and shows little to no knowledge of the subject matter, including an inability to write and communicate clearly. Grading is absurd and based on a private "country club" concept. Do nto expect any cooperation/acknowledgement from deans or the administration. This is truly 21st century academic fraud.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I honestly enjoyed SNHU online it was an excellent college experience that I would not change for the world. I love everything that SNHU offered and I am happy that I am a college graduate. I got about 15-17 more classes to obtain my Bachelors and I cant wait. Good luck to all!
