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 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.
I am in the online biochemistry degree because I work full time in a doctors office. I found it extremely difficult to be able to attend school full time as a ground student and still work because most of the classes and labs are right in the middle of my day. Arizona State University had come up with a full time online degree so I am able to continue to work full time and go to school at the same time. The advisors set up a schedule with classes to take during each semester so I can graduate in less than 2 years. It is very doable since I am an older person and have less energy than the typical college student.
ASU overall is a good school. However, the teachers aren't all that great. One in particular was the worst teacher I have ever taken classes from at any school across my entire life in school. When I filed a grievance they sided with him even after I provided proof. Then they tried to turn the whole thing around on me and out the blame on the student. Some of the professor are great but others are straight up crazy. They grade you down for honest mistakes, dont give good feedback and have PMS half the time. I'd save your money and go to a real college.
Arizona State University has a variety of programs both online and on campus that are diverse and also affordable. While working towards my Bachelors degree I was able to take elective classes that I found to be interesting. This made my education process a wonderful experience. Overall their advisors and aid personal have always been helpful and avalible for questions or concerns.
Arizona State University is a great school to attend for a bachelors degree, either on campus or online! I started taking classes on campus at ASU West and the professors there are great! Because class sizes are small, you get to have more interaction with your professors. Having more interaction with the professor means getting more help in the class, which should be taken advantage of. Even though ASU West is the smallest campus, it is the most peaceful, beautiful and safest campus around! Students can roam around the campus during the day or night without any problems. When you walk around you get to hear all the birds singing, thats how calm it is when you walk to class! Everyone who works there is super kind and helpful. You can be talking to either the people at Financial Aid or the maintenance workers at the dorms and they are all really nice! When you have a problem with your MyASU account, computer, dorm, or even with your homework the faculty and staff are there to help. After noticing that I had trouble concentrating and learning in class during my first year, I started taking the online degree program at ASU. When I began taking it, I felt focused and I was ready to learn. The online program is the best thing that happened to me! I was able to do my work without a problem and at my own pace! Even if youre taking classes online, the professors are great! If you have trouble getting all your notes in class, taking online is best because you can watch lectures again. Although you dont get that face to face interaction with professors or students, you can still communicate with them in emails, posts, or voice chat. I truly enjoyed being on campus and taking the online degree program at ASU! I highly recommend attending ASU for you bachelors degree, whether on campus or online!
As a full time employee, student, and family member, the online Educational Studies program allowed the flexibility I needed to return to college after a twenty year absence. The content and thinking processes associated with the degree increased my knowledge about 21st century thinking and life skills necessary to succeed in today's world. The degree opens opportunities outside the classroom that are rewarding and fulfilling. Professors were respectful, helpful, and communicated at a professional level. I would recommend this degree to others seeking an education degree but would like to expand outside the classroom walls.
I would recommend Arizona State Universitys innovative online education to anyone. My experience has been nothing less than exceptional, quick, and engaging. Their online education is very user-friendly; even for those who are less tech-savvy. Online interactions between instructors, staff, students, and technical support allowed me to maintain a professional and personal life outside of my education. I was able to continue a set work schedule, with little to no interruption during my time as a student. Being an online student is convenient and provides flexibility, however, you have to be organized and self-motivated. There are many resources available for Arizona State University students and online students are no exception. When in doubt, refer to your helpful advisor. They are quick to respond and full of surprising tricks and suggestions to ensure student success.
I'm just starting the IT program but so far it's really great. It is expensive, but there aren't a lot of fully online options out there and this is one of the few that are actually credible. I didn't want to go to a different online school only to write papers the entire time. The financial department has been helpful every time I needed assistance or any kind of information/advice. You can either call them or chat online with them which is helpful. I also liked being able to do phone meetings with my advisor on what classes to take next, and there are tutors available via an online portal (EVEN ON SUNDAYS!). I really can't complain. I have to say, I've been taking mostly online classes for a while now even previous to ASU, so if you're not used to having the self discipline and motivation to work, meet deadlines and spend the extra time studying when you're having a hard time with something, I wouldn't suggest doing a fully online program like ASU right off the bat. Maybe work your way by doing online classes at a local community college first.
I've attended four universities over the years, and I settled on Arizona State University because of how well their online platform is set up. I chose Liberal Studies because I wanted the freedom to choose from a variety of areas of focus. I'm sticking with Arizona State for my Master's Degree because of the quality of instruction I received in the past.
