Degree: Supply Chain Management
Graduation Year: 2018

This is a highly ranked program for supply chain management majors! If you are looking for a career in supply chain, look no further! ASU has outstanding faculty for this program and the resources they provide are phenomenal! Each Fall and Spring semester they have a career fair where businesses only come to hire supply chain majors. Because this is such a high ranked program, you will see all the major businesses in attendance. This program truly prepared me for what I do in my job today. I see how it has given me an advantage amongst my peers and fellow co-workers. ASUs supply chain program not only covers the basics, but will teach you skills needed for this industry. You will have opportunities to work with fortune 500 companies to evaluate and recommend solutions to their supply chain. The experience you can gain from this program will set you up to be a valuable and marketable future employee. This program also gives plenty of opportunity to work with fellow students in projects so you are always expanding your network. Finally, ASUs WP Carey School of Business is a great place to receive your education. You will be well rounded in business no matter what degree you pursue. If you do not like the program you are in, ASU is flexible and will give you one on one attention to help figure out a path you will enjoy. You will not be disappointed for making the decision to attend ASU.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences and Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2020

I was exciting to go back to school for my Masters as I'm creeping every closer to 40. I am disabled and live in California, so of course I chose the online route, but I have been severely disappointed from the beginning. I don't know why I was surprised, but just like all corporate run state colleges, this one was no exception. They must assume that everyone is a clueless freshman that has no direction in life (not saying this applies to all freshman), as, of course, they enroll you in classes that you already know you will never use the information from in your professional career. But they get to justify it because that's just how it is and they can get away with it. It's a money grab. This is the way it's been for a very long time, but then for those classes, like Calculus I or II, they set you up to fail. Again, no logical explanation other than to force you to retake a classes and give them more money. Calculus is not a beginners math class and is in no way a subject you should be forced to take unless you already know it is used in your future career of choice. It is NOT in may case (facts based on friends and colleagues establish in the same career) and I simply do not have the brain power to memorize BS that will be useless 6 months down the road. But they have to justify filling those seats, which they couldn't do if they only offered it to people who actually needed it. They are no better than the extended warranty offered when you buy a used car. Scam. But the real problem comes when your ONLINE tests are proctored. Not only do you have to take the test with your webcam and microphone on, they apparently believe they have the right to tell you to not have any music on, rearrange your office or desk so that there are no other materials anywhere in sight, and don't talk out loud. Basically, they want to control every facet of you home life when taking their class. It is a GROSS invasion of privacy and unnecessary control. You literally have to pick up your laptop or camera and show them all around the room, forcing their way into your home. Unbelievable. If you are a stay-at-home parent with a baby to take care of, probably the reason you chose online courses to begin with, then apparently you need to lock your baby in a closet, otherwise you'll get an email about rules violations while taking the test and the noises from the baby that can be heard. I have a dog and he has issues and growls at times. *Rule Violation! Sorry school, you don't have the right to tell me I need to spend money on a sitter, that I don't have. As far as I am concerned, they do NOT have the right to tell you how you recall information or how you study, so it's become a joke now and as far as I am concerned their rules hold no value. I continue to talk to myself, that's how I recall and study, I am no longer concerned for their opinion of it. And to be clear, these things were NOT discussed in any capacity as I enrolled in the school, paid the overpriced application fee and spend time submitting all required documentation. It is only revealed AFTER you enroll in the class and become aware of their test taking policy. You know, when it's a little late to back out. Just be warned and think about your reasons for taking the online route. You privacy will be violated, you will have to re-think the way you study, the way you recall information etc etc. And while we're on the subject, shouldn't schools get with the times? No company worth their weight will ever limit an employee to only using information that they have memorized. Any good manager will provide their employees with all the resources they need to get their job done, whether it is reference material, notes, etc etc. So why do school insist that you don't use notes when taking tests? Having notes is no guarantee that you will ace anything, you still have to understand what you are referencing, but they care more about outdated memorizing than actual learning. The only logical explanation is they desire to set their students up to fail, thereby forcing those that did not eagerly await this class, to fail, and pay them more money to retake it. Look at a picture of any scientist in their lab/office. What do you see? Books and notes, everywhere. And it's literally rocket science for some. So, in conclusion. You are far better off just paying the monthly fee at Cousera, and learning on your own terms. Our school system is outdated and as can clearly been seen in recent news, just as corrupt as any bank or government agency. Do yourself a favor and save both stress and money and seek alternate solutions. I have been very happy with my representative at the school, but that's about it. This is 2019 and the videos (the real teachers) are from 2012. I have pointed out 3 errors to date and clearly they will not be changed, further setting up unsuspected students to failure. Very, very disappointed.

Degree: Human Development and Family Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2018

Arizona State University is a thriving University. There are an incredible number of programs and the advisers are wonderful in helping your find the right program for you and your career goals. The campus is spacious with unlimited resources to their students. Between the online options and the in-class courses, you can find just about anything schedule you need to be successful. The teaching staff is great and the courses are easy to maneuver with very detailed syllabuses. There is also a variety of financial aid available to incoming freshman with a competitive GPA. I would recommend Arizona State as a valid option for anyone that wants versatility, support, and opportunities in their education.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I transferred to ASU after getting my AA from community college. I was excited about the classes offered and looked forward to getting my BS from them. I worked closely with my Academic Advisor to take the best courses possible. At the end of the semester, I called to speak with my AA again to register for next classes. The one that I worked with originally was no longer there. I was asked why I took the classes that I had, because none of them applied to the degree I was pursuing. I told them that I cleared them with my previous AA. They then advised that my graduation date would be delayed another semester because of the classes I had just completed. So now, I was on the line for 7k in student loans that served me no purpose. I immediately transferred to another school.

Degree: Public Administration and Social Service Professions, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

Arizona State University and the Watts College of Public Service and Community Resource provides unique opportunities to individuals of all ages and in various paths of professional and educational development. The various courses within this program are supported by the universities efforts to provide opportunities students while in school and lead productive and impacting lives after graduation. While you may need to work a little harder with the administration staff, the professors in this program have experience outside of academia supporting the aspect that their lessons are not just theory but occur in the professional world. During my time in this program, I was provided many opportunities that supported further professional and personal development, suggesting that Arizona State University prepares individuals for more than just their career. While the school does not always make it easy to find opportunities, they are extremely supportive of any and every opportunity to work with students to ensure they receive the most from their higher level education. There are a few tips I would suggest when attending this school and possibly in this program. The first would be to take advantage of everything offered, and you may never know what will spark an interest! The second is to be aware, planning for the future is always supported, but enjoy the reality of being in college. The third and final word of wisdom is to ask questions, in making sure that the university and program know your needs as a student as they are here to support you!

Degree: Geological and Earth Sciences/Geosciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2018

This is a great degree if you are interested in an environmental or geosciences career, especially if you are going into STEM education. Be aware if you are looking to be an environmental tech, employeers are looking for BS candidates, and this is a BA degree. I have gotten interviews though, so know what you want to use the degree for.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

Currently pursuing my Electrical Engineering Degree 100% online, my biggest complaint is the lack up support from ASU when looking for help on difficult subjects. They have online tutoring but when you get to more advanced classes they will have at best one person who is competent enough to instill confidence that they know what they are doing and that one person is usually only available Tuesday at (9:00am-10:00am). If you are a student straight out of high school this program can work for you but if you are a non traditional student that is trying to pursue your EE degree while working a full time job this is not for you. If you have questions about the program just comment and it will notify me.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

The course material is worse than the few material on Youtube. The professors ignore emails, even on exam days. The testing system is completely broken, so you might as well not even study the material, because the score you receive will have nothing to do with your mastery of the material.

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?
