Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2019

Really awesome degree programs, but ASU only cares about money! I am in triple digit debt, and for what? I had to ask 5 different teachers for letters of recommendations for graduate school because most said no. It is like.. they do not really care. I would email professors about meeting to discuss "next-steps" for after graduation and most did not answer me. I simply wanted to know how they got into the field they were in, I was interested in it for myself, and 3 separate professors ignored me. They go on and on about mentor-ship and opportunities but for the amount of money I paid them in tuition and fees, all I truly got was a headache. I learned really interesting material in class, but most of it was self-driven. I had to make my own schedules and independently study topics. I had to make my own class schedules, advising has no idea what they are doing. It is a lot of YOU doing for yourself, and that is fine and it prepares you for the real-world. But why am I in so much debt for a school that really did not do much for me?

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Arizona State University has provided the right amount of assistance in every possible way. There were many organization to take apart of that everyone will feel welcomed to no matter their background or where they come from. There is no possible way to 'not get help' for courses. The life on campus was always great and there was always guidance where ever you went and all of the professors are excellent.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2018

My experience at Arizona State University for my Bachelors degree was so great that I am attending the college again to receive my Masters degree. From my application experience as a high school senior to my acceptance and orientation, I immediately felt as if I was a part of the university and well supported. The university offers many services to assist incoming freshman with the transition to college such as peer mentoring, access to advisors and housing staff, tutoring centers, and counseling services. If you do well in classes, it is easy to obtain academic scholarships as well as apply for other scholarships based on your life experiences or major of study. By the end of my college experience, I was able to graduate debt free due to the countless scholarship opportunities Arizona State University provided me. My experience within the Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education program and at Arizona State University was nothing short of worth the price of tuition. As a result of the iTeach program used by the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, I was able to confidently pass the necessary certification exams, receive my certification the day I applied for it with the Arizona Department of Education, and be interviewed extensively for multiple jobs in various districts due to the high regard given to degrees in education from Arizona State University. I feel well prepared in my field due to the classes, experiences, and faculty I encountered throughout the time in my undergraduate degree program.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences and Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2018

Studying Computer Science at Arizona State University has proved to be very beneficial to not only expanding my knowledge and understanding of theoretical applications of Computer Science but also has allowed me to apply my learning in very interesting ways. I have enjoyed a majority of the teachers and courses that I have taken at ASU and have felt that they have helped me to better my knowledge of best practices in Computer Science as well as pushed me to look forward to learning more and deepening my understanding of software development principles. There are a lot of great schools out there and some that likely have better and more experienced professors but I have found that many ASU professors are willing to work with students that show a genuine interest in mastering the subject and that come to visit with them during their office hours. Having understanding and caring teachers was also a huge benefit of attending ASU as I could work with them ahead of time if I had a family vacation planned during the semester that might interfere with a test schedule and find a time to take the exam when I was available to do so. Like any other university or degree program there were some difficult and not enjoyable courses that could be removed or revised from the degree program to better prepare students for jobs in the future. Despite this, I believe ASU has done a good job overall at revising their Computer Science degree program and continuing to make it better for future students to be more prepared and to receive better instruction while minimizing courses and assignments that are not as useful for the students. I know that during the four years that I attended and completed my Bachelor's degree there were several revisions made to the major map and degree requirements for Computer Science. One of the degree requirements that was revised while I was attending ASU that I took advantage of was taking a course called "Logic in Computer Science" which could take the place of Calculus 3. For me this was very helpful as I did not go directly from High School into University studies and because of that I had not been doing mathematics and was very out of practice. Being able to take this course really helped me understand other important topics in Computer Science and also was much more interesting to me than my Calculus 2 course that I had taken the semester before this class.

Degree: Biology

ASU Polytechnic is a great study school with plenty of science programs to choose from, advisers to talk to, and a small campus feel that allows for easy formations of relationships with everyone you interact with. I really enjoyed gaining lasting mentors and connections.

Degree: Music Therapy/Therapist
Graduation Year: 2019

Music therapy master degree equivalency program for 3 years at Arizona State University is highly recommended. During the first 1.5 years, students can learn a variety of Music therapy knowledge and skills. After that, students join internship programs for 6 months. It enables students take CBMT (The Certification Board for Music Therapists ) exam for becoming professional music therapists. Music therapy program at Arizona State University is a top level in the US. While studying music therapy, students can also take other music courses such as composition, music history, musical performance which students are interested in. Professors are great and kind. Students can keep their motivation and achieve their goals while enjoying the university life in sunshine and comfortable climate throughout the year.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2014

I truly believe Arizona State University is a great choice. I was able to earn my degree 100% online while working full time and being a single mother of two. The flexibility the school offered was valuable to me and my family. I was able to go to work during the day and come home in the evenings, login to my computer and attend classes right in the comfort of my own home. Occasionally I would have my two daughters visit me which is okay at home, however that is usually not acceptable in a traditional classroom setting. "Fear the Fork" Go ASU!
