Southern New Hampshire University Online Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (129)
I had a situation where my instructor had some discriminating behavior and I shared it with my academic advisor and she was not helpful at all. Actually, she tried to down-play it and make it seem as if I was taking it wrong. My academic advisor and her immediate lead tried to convince me that there was no Dean of Students for the online students and there was basically no one I could talk to. I was informed of this third party on the outside that would look into the matter and that everything had to filled out on paper. As much as I have paid this school in tuition, I should have been able to speak to someone and not blown off being informed about some form. Oh yeah, by the way the academic counselor saw the email the instructor sent to me. The situation was not handled right and I will no longer attend a school that allow such behavior as this.
The classes are nice online but a lot of writing and the most stupid thing is the discussion board . I would like to say the a Advisor are always interested in your success they are nice, the professor are good, but the financial aid is the worst system you never could imagine I have been asking to talk to the dean and most of the time they say oh leave ur phone number he will call you back that's a lie. The worst thing is that they ask too much loans plus for they give u financial aid is a nightmare. I would recommend the classes in there but if u want study at SNHU least have all the papers actualized bc like I said financial aid is the worst of the worst they don't care about helping you most of the time they don't answer u back or when u call to ask ? They put you on hold to ask somebody else because they don't know.
I have only attended SNHU Online for 4 terms. Some of the advisors are difficult to get in contact with when you need something but they will call constantly if they need to get in contact with you. Second, when it comes to One Stop, FORGET getting any REAL answers. Save your money and go to an instate college that offers online degrees. The curriculum is just like at a brick and mortar, but again when it comes the financial side, you will get the run a round.
Southern New Hampshire University's online program for a degree in Creative Writing with a concentration in fiction was perfect for me. As a single mother of two children in school, working full time and with a full time life outside of work, this program has been excellent. The advisers and teaching staff were helpful. Anything I asked was answered promptly. Financial aid was explained to me and was an expedient process. Graduation was beautiful and I flew from California to go. I would recommend this college to anyone who needs to do an online degree. I will be getting my graduate degree with them.
I would highly recommend this school for anyone working professionals looking to expand their knowledge or high school graduates. The instructors are topnotch and will go out of their way to help you succeed. If you are looking for a school to get your bachelors or master give SNHU a try you'll be glad you did.
Advisors and professors have been incredibly helpful and attentive every step of the way. I did not feel like "another number"; I truly felt appreciated and encouraged to pursue my degree. Classes are well-structured and very clear-cut. Tuition was very reasonable, considering the quality of the education you receive. Fantastic experience all around!
So far, I'm having a wonderful experience. The professors and advisors are very helpful. They do follow up calls and emails to make sure you're comfortable with the format. My professor always provides feedback positive or on what needs improvement when posting each grade. If they feel like you are unsure of what is expected or heading in the wrong direction they always make sure to touch base. The work load is a lot, but not overwhelming as with other online programs I've reviewed or attended. SNHU made sure to start my online program off slowly so I wouldn't be destined for failure my very first term or feel overwhelmed by the workload. As you build your confidence, you may increase the your courses.
I love SNHU, it was very different than my traditional college experiences. The personal focus must be higher as you are not on campus, its just you holding yourself accountable. Do your research and I would recommend a non-profit college. They have been helpful and seem genuinely interested in your success. You have one contact and the tech support is first rate. They are also veteran friendly. If you are looking for true online experience without the unnecessary layers checkout SNHU.
This school will steal your money, force you to pay out of pocket or rely on loans because YOUR grants are unavailable or held by another school, excuse after excuse. And they cannot seem to keep to their promised Veteran pricing that they offered my wife or sister. I promise you will regret dealing with these thieves. It will blow your mind the amount of unprofessional representatives will lie about your problems. Do Not take their words at face value.
I am five-eighths of the way through my first term at SNHU online. This will be my third degree, the first two were from (different) brick & mortar state universities. I also teach developmental math at a local community college. And I taught one term at ITT Tech, which is a diploma mill to such a disgusting degree. I never returned. I am impressed with SNHU and with what they have been able to achieve. I am taking two classes, one of which I find extremely challenging, the other only mildly so. The quality of their advising is far superior to anything that I have ever experienced. The community college where I teach, in particular, does a horrendous job of advising- the students are completely uninformed about their educational programs. SNHU really helped me make the right decisions (financing, scheduling, etc.) At ITT Tech, it was all about selling to new students, to enhance prospects. SNHU doesn't have the profit motive - my enrollment advisor was cautious and informative, not at all pushy. My academic advisor is helpful and available and acts as a mentor and a champion. A sizable chunk of my classmates in both classes are former military, which I really like for some reason. I don't have any military types in my family or immediate circle, so it's nice to have discussions with them about math online. It's nice to see who these wonderful people really are, how their minds work. I do worry about the impressions out there of the school, such as the negative ones that appear on this forum. I worry that the degree will be snorted at on my resume. But I think they are trying to do the right thing. If they keep it up, the school will only keep improving.
