"If you want to check a box of completing a bachelors degree then this school can do that for you. You will do a lot of work in some classes but not all. It is a very impersonal school so don’t expect to make connections with your instructors. If you want to go on to graduate school, I would not recommend doing an online program unless you have a way of doing teaching assistant jobs with a university or doing in person research since the professors at this school have no interest in writing recommendation letters. Overall if I could do my bachelors in person I would since it would most likely be cheaper and more advantageous for me, but since I work full time in the military that’s not an option. If you are a student who has the choice of going to school in person do so, it will be better for you in the long run."

"This college has changed my life exponentially. When I began my Bachelor's program here I had no idea how much it would change my life for the better, not just through education but through wonderful people and professors I was able to connect with throughout the online program. The online platform is wonderful for watching lectures and discussing material with fellow students and the professors. Responses are quick and helpful from the professors and the truly are there to help the students succeed. Additionally, the college assigns students to "Success Coaches" which are available to help talk about anything you need varying from budgeting to mental health resources. Tutoring is available for all subjects and the library resource allows students to read and use academic articles, journals, and books for free. I recommend this college to everyone who is considering applying for a new school; I also plan on continuing with my education through their multitude of programs. If you need to speak with a counselor and you will be overwhelmed with the friendly and helpful nature of all of them. I can't praise this school enough, it is an amazing place to be; I am proud to be an Arizona State alumni."

"Arizona State University's online program has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The program has allowed for me to challenge myself in time management and self delegation. Upon starting college, I didn't think online was a good idea because you are physically alone. You miss out on a lot of student life. Although, the basic college experience is not for everyone. I am a full time worker, I live on my own, and I support myself at least 90% financially. ASU online allowed for me to obtain an education, while assuring that my other needs were met. The schedule is nearly up to the student, as long as they meet deadlines. You are not alone online. The professors always provided excellent assistance and support, showing constant excitement for what they were teaching. The students in all classes provide a sense of belonging, as ultimately you all are "there" for the same purpose. The psychology program itself was so intriguing. I learned so much and fell in love with the subject. It helped me decide what I wanted to do with myself upon graduation. I have also enjoyed the staff and the program so much that I have decided to persue my education further through ASU's M.S. Psychology program. I am beyond excited and I would of course recommend this to anyone who is looking for an alternative schooling option!"

"Arizona State University has an amazing undergraduate education with many opportunities to gain experiences outside of the typical curriculum. As an undergraduate in Psychology and in Family and Human Development, I had the opportunity to work in research labs where I gained mentorship in developing a research project, collecting data, analyzing data using statistics, and writing up research papers for publication in scientific journals before I started graduate school. This gave me a huge advantage as I planned to get further education as a graduate student after I earned my undergraduate degrees. I would highly recommend students to consider attending Arizona State University."

"I began my education at a community college before transferring to ASU. (Side note: If you are looking to transfer to any in-state school, I highly recommend you utilize "aztransfer.com" to ensure that the courses you are taking are actually going to transfer to the university you are transferring to, and you can see *how* it will transfer; ie- my science courses from the community college I attended transferred to ASU as an *elective* and NOT as the science course they actually are.) The issues with the small number of my courses only transferring in as "electives" was the only real problem I have ever had with this school. My academic advisers made it easy for me to understand my degree requirements and taught me how to use the many self service options on MyASU. As an incoming sophomore, I was surprised several of my gen eds had the small class sizes I loved at my community college, and in the one course with ~75 students, I was able to easily connect with my instructor and felt supported and heard. The university goes above and beyond to make sure every student feels supported and has the resources to accommodate every student's needs. There are free shuttles that travel between campuses, which has helped me tremendously in selecting classes and saving time and money by not driving between campuses and paying for parking. Overall, this school helped ease any anxieties or insecurities about affording college and continuing my education. Despite the overwhelming size of the Tempe (main) campus, I still was made to feel like I was still in a smaller school when I entered my classes."

"The Psychology degree program at Arizona State University definitely needs more construct. I spent a lot of my undergraduate career learning about everything else BUT psychology. During my senior year, I went on to take courses that focused more on Psychology. I would encourage anyone in this field to look into Research internships on campus."

"Arizona State University is leading the pack with its focus on research, innovation, diversity, and inclusion. I have never been to another campus that harbors the idea of community connectedness like Arizona State. The professors are brilliant and have so many unique and amazing backgrounds, there is never a lack of assistance and understanding."

"Attending Arizona State University was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made. The combination of both the educational aspect as well as social aspect made it an experience I will never forget. All of my professors were amazing and no matter how big the class size was they always made me feel like I was important as an idividual. Social life on campus is amazing and they always have events to participate in. The opportunities they provide are unlimited! They are always trying to update the campus and you can eally see where your money is going when it comes to the resources that are available to you. The main campus where I attending is located in a perfect place and you have access to so much. As a psychology major I feel that my classes really set me up for success after graduation. I would highly recommend that one attend this school."

"Arizona State University (ASU) is a college that is known for its partying. While that may be appealing or make you look at different options, thats not all it is about. ASU has some great educational programs and with more than one campus to choose from you have plenty of different options on where to choose your classes. In my time, I started my degree at the West Campus for a smaller, close knit campus. Then moved on to Tempe when I was comfortable and wanted more classes to choose from. One of my tips to any one pursuing their education with ASU is to read and understand your program check sheet. This is important. The more you understand it the less time you will waste taking classes that dont meet your needs. Know your goals and choose electives accordingly. By fully understanding my syllabus, I was able be better prepared when choosing my classes and able to get into the classes I needed the moment they opened. ASU has registration times base on last names and programs. This is so their systems dont crash from the sheer amount of students on all at once. Knowing your classes early will make it so that when your time is ready, you just go in, add to cart and get enrolled. Dont let the partying fool you, ASU is more in depth and valuable than that."

"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."

"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 was a transfer student from NAU where I began my bachelor's degree in psychology. When I transferred to Arizona State University I attended the main Tempe campus. I loved the professors and classes, but the campus itself was a little too big for me. The students were also not very friendly. I finished my degree at the west campus which was may more my speed. It was smaller and friendlier. Overall a great experience."

"The psychology program is an intensive program that teaches both grammatical and science courses. Research methods are explained in full detail and prepare you for the research required in a psychology career. Many different mental disorders and behaviors are studied extensively which gives a clear cut understanding of how these disorders effect people. The instructors are extremely helpful with any questions or concerns and are very understanding as long as you put forth the effort needed to pass the class."

"I would tell anyone to be very wary of transferring into ASU and when dealing with advisors. I have been royally s*****d for the upcoming year by having some pretty c****y advising that has left me without required credits that I was previously led to believe I already had earned, and I am not having to do those credits and take yet another semester (I was supposed to graduate this coming Spring). And it is looking like those extra credits will have to be paid for out of my own pocket rather than by financial aid. So, if you are a high school aged kid and you are thinking about college and are considering ASU: proceed at your own risk. I would HIGHLY advise you to know exactly what credits you will need, when you will complete, them, how long it will take, etc. You CANNOT trust the advising team at ASU to help you here, from my experience. Actually, be careful with ASU period!"

"Arizona State University provides great faculty with diverse experiences, but most importantly they want to invest in their students lives. I personally became close with one of my professors who to this day I can still visit in her office hours for both advice and just to talk about any insecurities I have about the future. It's not only important to have a knowledgeable teacher, but also one who invests and cares about their students."

"Arizona State University stretches across four campuses and online. The best part? Students, regardless of major, can take classes anywhere! During a semester, I was unable to be on campus but did not have to stop taking courses because I was able to use the online platform to learn. When college dorm living because to expensive and I moved home, I was able to take classes on the campuses closest to me even though my major was housed on the main campus. ASU is a place to learn, make friends, get involved, create networks, and build memories. I highly encourage anyone to attend Arizona State University."

"Arizona State University (ASU) has a plethora of resources available at a students fingertips. There are immense amounts of opportunities: student organizations, flexibility of scheduling classes, and the well-established academic department. All of these can allow a student to thrive academically, personally and professionally growth. The challenging aspect of being an ASU student is navigating the sometimes overwhelming amount of stimuli the campus offers. Because of its mere size, its difficulty to know about all the resources the university offers."
