Arizona State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (265)
My undergraduate exeperience was amazing because I took advantage of all that the University had to offer. ANy clubs that interested me, I became a part of. Any organizations that could assist me, I was signed up with (for me, TRiO STEM because I was a first generation student) . Free or discounted plays or orchestras - I was there. College is about taking advantage of all academic opportunities as much as it is about taking advantage of all the extra curriculars too!
I could not give Arizona State University's online program enough praise. I feel that I was able to connect with my classmates and teachers throughout all of my courses. I was challenged throughout my time a ASU and always felt supported by the school itself. The online program was easy to keep up with and I found it very easy to go at my own pace. Although there are due dates each week, I was able to work ahead when I wanted to. This was incredibly beneficial for me as I also work full time. I am really proud to say that I graduated from ASU!
I used them online and after a semester through their social media outlets such as Facebook groups, I and my spouse were being harrassed by other students. I felt the school itself was acceptable in education but had too much social media conflict. If you go there just do yourself a favor and do not communicate with any other students for any reason.
Their classes only present information. This school does not help you in anyway to get a job in the field you studied. Also their Forensics program is nothing more then a joke. In one class the instructor gave the class material to read about Topac, including all the sexual street language and I thought it was very inappropriate and a very bad choice of material that didn't belong in an educational environment. Also, their Reach-trio program is worthless and needs to be trashed all together. This is just for starters.
I attended Arizona State University online to gain my Bachelors degree, which I received in December of 2017. I have heard many say that online school is not real school or it is much easier than traditional school. I am here to tell you, you are wrong. Online school is just different. While it may not be easier, it is definitely more convenient for those of us that work full time, go to school full time and take care of kids full time. It is a bit more flexible, but the schedules are still pretty strict and you have to be disciplined enough to get your work turned in. Most of the teachers I had were understanding, but still expected you to be an adult and be responsible. Arizona State University was definitely my top choice to obtain a degree because of their online school options and when I found out they were getting Masters programs online, I was all over it. I would not be able to afford going to traditional school full time, especially with me working full time as well. One or the other would have had to go and I was not willing to make that sacrifice. The pace for the school is pretty fair, but a bit quick. I liked the fast paced classes as they allowed me to finish my degree even faster. It was also a bit better for since I could still take the four classes a semester, but split them up into 2 per session.
I started an online degree program at Arizona State University in Spring of 2013 with some trepidation. Especially because I was returning to finish a degree after more than 20 years out of school. ASU surprisingly provides everything you need to make you successful. They provide support in any form you can think of. You just have to ask. It ended up being the best thing I have ever done professionally. I graduated in May 2016 with a honors degree.
I chose Arizona State University knowing that the journalism program at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication was consistently ranked "Top 10" in the nation. The school more than delivered my expectations in a journalism program. The professors were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the subjects we studied and I was constantly immersed in opportunities to better myself professionally to become competitive in the field upon my graduation. I wouldn't have chosen to go anywhere else.
I previously attended the University of Phoenix online and was referred to Arizona State University through a colleague. I am currently employed as a full time police officer so I am forced to pursue my education solely online. ASU has fantastic instructors. Their knowledge and experience in their perspective fields has greatly assisted me in my pursuit of higher education and expertise.
Arizona State University is a very large school but with many great programs and colleges to attend. From personal experience, I have enjoyed being in the School of Molecular Sciences obtaining a degree in chemistry. If you are wanting to get a degree in chemistry I highly recommend Arizona State University. They have an excellent faculty who are very wise and caring. They also have good courses required for you to take. A chemistry degree from Arizona State University is ACS certified whereas other universities do not provide that. If you are pursuing a career in the physical sciences you will need a degree that is ACS certified which is why I recommend Arizona State University over other universities.
I spent almost five years at ASU. It is very usual for schools to support funding for PhD students; However, ASU is just about building up their profit. They increase the admission rate every year. Even graduate classes are exploding of crowd. No services or consultations -which are free in many schools- are free at ASU. My department does not support students by scholarships but only through teaching assistant-ships which are allocated to a few students who are referred by a faculty. On my third semester, as a PhD, I had to pay my tuition from my own pocket since the faculty who had referred me to the department head had changed his mind. So department refused to allocate a TA ship to me back then. Now I am very close to graduation. I have published several papers during past 5 years and have done several research projects from industry and my GPA is fairly high. I have to pay for a summer tuition since I registered for my defense. I asked the department for help since it is difficult for me to pay this money besides I simply think I deserve it. I never received any type of financial aid from school so far. As I expected department head told me that they do not have funding now. I directly emailed the ASU president, Micheal Crow, to ask for waiving my tuition (only $1500). Not only he didn't directly respond to me, he dismissively assigned someone from International Student Office to meet with me to just tell me there is nothing they can do. Correct! They had me go to that office, wait for someone to hear that nonsense. Waste of time and energy. This school and the leadership is just disappointing.
