"I’ve read through the comments and felt compelled to write an accurate review from the perspective of a 28 year old, married with three children, disabled veteran and full time employee. I’ve seen quite a few reviews saying that “the program is not meant for working adults...” I’ll be the first to tell you that it is. If you have the work ethic, you can absolutely achieve a degree. There were times I would have to get up around 4-5AM, before the kids were up, just so I could complete assignments. As far ASU, I actually transferred back to ASU because I found it truly challenging to attend another institution in person. The flexibility of ASU’s platform is really what allowed me as a non-traditional student to graduate. The classes can be challenging and the shift from Blackboard to Canvas was a god send. I enjoyed my time there. The only fault I have with ASU, is their finance department/veteran benefit department. It practically feels non existent. I’ve had periods that were not certified until a week before the course was over. Just remember, the only support you have (from what I’ve experienced) is yourself. You will have to be a self starter to get your work done and address any institutional issues."

"This school is a joke. They require courses that suit their federally funded needs, and have little to no content that helps in the long run. They do absolutely nothing to help you succeed in internships or a future career. The guidance department watches Netflix all day, and only advocates for career programs that are out of state or pay the school for advertising. Also, the director of the school copied his speech from another speaker at my graduation. Joke!"

"Arizona State University is the best college and I made a great choice by attending this school. I have never had any bad professors or any bad experiences. Everyone here truly cares about your education and they want you to be successful. The classes can be challenging, but that is the best part about it. They offer degrees that are accelerated if you want to dedicate time to pursuing your degree faster."

"Great program with excellent teachers and advisors who went the extra mile to work with students. Coming from Wisconsin, I enjoyed my 4 years in Arizona for college and felt it offered me a great opportunity to meet new people from all over the country who became life long friends."

"Attending Arizona State University was one of the best decisions I have made in my life thus far. I studied Criminal Justice and the school and professors were all incredible. I always felt as though the professors genuinely wanted me to succeed. I spent a lot of time on the Downtown Phoenix campus, which is stunning. The atmosphere is that of driven young adults pursuing their dreams of professionalism and success."

"Overall the Criminal Justice & Criminology program at Arizona State University was a great choice for me. The teachers are tough yet caring, and you learn more than you expect going in. Career services and advising for this program in particular was top notch, I was emailed with networking and job opportunities nearly every week. ASU is definitely on the rise."

"If you are looking for an online degree program, this university has a reputable one with many options. However, certain professors are "unprofessional" and the administration within this particular school of the university lacked compassion for their students and seemed unconcerned with student success. There are many reputable online universities these days, don't get caught up in their sales pitch."

"Arizona State University provided me a challenging and stimulating environment in which to continue my education. The professors, regardless of the class, demonstrated expertise and passion in their fields. This commitment to their disciplines really inspired me to engage in the class and really aided in my retention of the material. The University provided a tremendous amount of resources to students that extended beyond the class room. Multiple and accessible computer labs, libraries, tutoring resources, and social venues were readily available to me when needed. I truly value the education and experiences that Arizona State provides it's students. I have entered Graduate school at Grand Canyon University, but will always have a very special place in my heart for Arizona State. I am extremely proud to be apart of the ASU alumni family."

"Arizona State University is a wonderful school. The teachers really care about your education. I learned a great deal here and I continue to learn more since I decided to stay and pursue my masters. What I love the most about ASU is how the courses are created to make you think critically."

"Overall, my experience was okay. I felt like the professors were there just to earn a paycheck, and weren't really interested in teaching and helping the students. The atmosphere is also very boring and standard. They have excellent facilities, classrooms, technology, etc. However, they lack substance and quality instructors."
