"It is unbelievable the amount of work they expect from you every week. I had a big paper due and I emailed the school's writing center, the instructor and my advisor for help and not one got back to me. Other times when I did get a response the instructor didn't know the answer and told me to ask another staff member. I was reluctant to start back to school after being out for so long but the advisor assured me that I would have good support at this school. I would not recommend this school."

"American Sentinel University provides great flexibility and ease. The short 8 week schedules plus the overlapping terms allow for greater ease of accomplishment. I only have praise for the professors that assisted me in accomplishing my goals. I also had my father who became critically ill during my studies and was able to get extensions in order to complete my courses without penalty. I highly recommend the school."

"American Sentinel was a good fit for me, all my professors where accesssble and called me back when I needed to get clarifications. Most all my professors held PhDs or EdDs . Many tutorials were available and live conferences with the Deans at select times. They dont just take you regardless of credits as I needed 2 humanities courses extra to graduate. They are Nationally accredited and will have their Initial Regional accreditation as of 9/19 as it is a 4 year process . They also value Veterans as they give them lower tuition costs."

"Took me a little over two years to complete. I worked very hard. There was a lot of essay writing. However, most higher degree programs require the ability to write essays. They want graduates to have a better understanding of pulling together evidenced-based practice and having the ability to summarize it. I found rubrics easy to understand. Like any type of higher education, the student gets what they put into it. If you want something, you have to work for it."

"American Sentinel University provided the support needed to achieve the highest level of education desired. During my journey I was expected to demonstrate accountability for the decisions taken. I improved my skills as a leader and the competencies needed to understand the healthcare environment today. As a leader, I find my self in circumstances where emotions run hot, but I learned to manage these emotional charges with positive people to balance my life."

Great school, TERRIBLE financial aid office - 4/9/2018
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018
"This school isn't bad but the financial aid office is awful! If you need financial aid I would recommend not going to this school they take forever and do not reply to anyone for days at a time taking multiple calls to get answers. Very uneducated people working in the office and don't seem to care about their jobs. You literally have maybe 3 people that work there that are completely unhelpful!"

"DNP program is solid.The professors are knowledgeable. Feedback were timely, discussion replies from professors always incorporated real life situations that contributed tremendously to my learning. Kudos to Dr. Pate and all faculty. The first year (2013) the assigned academic counselor was not as engaged. Didn't return phone calls which caused a lot of anxiety on my part however, my second year the new academic counselors were excellent. Kudos Julie!!!! PLE's I think are really great.... more work to do on top of required readings and weekly paper and discussions to submit. But, who says nursing is cake walk....let alone doctoral studies? I say, the DNP program is rigorous and I highly recommend."

"I am currently completing my BSN in nursing. I felt compelled to write a review as I really feel American Sentinel online program has surpassed my past experiences with other universities. I have been a ADN nurse for 7 years and working mostly an overtime schedule with a 1 and 2 year old, this university has been comparable to my busy life. When signing up the process is smooth. Tramaine (admission advisor), was the friendliness, most informative person I initially spoke with. I was given a couple different success advisors initially but finally have been with one, Jacqui, for a good amount of time. She has assisted me whenever I need it. She responds so quickly to her emails and makes you feel as though you are "on campus", she provides many good options and priceless guidance during the program. The 8 week classes are great, the instructors are compassionate in their education and I actually feel I am learning tools that have and will be utilized in my career. The price is comparable to standard BSN programs but really provide top dollar education. I can't say enough about this program, I am so happy I chose American Sentinel and will have acquired my degree very soon. From, A full-time OR RN a mother of 2 under 2, wife, and newly inducted Dean's List student!"

"I felt that American Sentinel was a good fit for me. My job subsidized my tuition, with a payback of three years to the company. I felt the education was great! Sometimes a little fast paced to learn everything the course syllabus outlined. I am also a nursing educator, and it opened the doors to better opportunities. It was difficult at the end taking two classes at a time, but well worth the effort to finish sooner. I would like to pursue my DNP in education from ASU in the future."
