I believe that in order to have an effective learning experience at ASU in the Mass Communication program, on campus is where you need to be. You really need to be involved and learn from experiences and surroundings. I was unable to attend on campus classes and did not participate in school events and lost out on many opportunities.
My undergraduate degree was at American Public Univerisity, I would highly recommend for a B.A. degree! Good, and fair classes and instructors! I am a working parent of three boys, I am trying to do the best I can to advance my career! I am currently working on a Master's to move my career forward.
Arizona State University's Online classes were a life saver for me. In my life situation, I do not have an option to stop working and go to school. With online courses I was able to work full time during the day and attend my classes at night. I was extremely impressed with the quality of the online courses!
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!
ASUs financial department is terrible. It shouldn't be so hard to pay my tuition, but ASU makes it hard!! If you have a scholarship good luck. I was repeatedly hit with late fees because the scholarship department could not post my payment to the finances department on time. It showed on my account that I had a scholarship and the money was there but because scholarships department didnt release it in time they nailed me with late fees and there was nothing I could do about it! Good luck calling, if they returned my call all they could tell me was nothing but sorry. They could not answer my questions and they just transferred me back and forth from scholarships to the finical department for an hour!! Great classes and instructors but terrible financial department. Just plan on paying an extra $100 in payment plan fees every semester on top of all the other fees you have to pay!! I gave the school 3 stars because any other department I reached out to was great and always returned calls and emails and I never had problems getting answers from them.
Arizona State University prides itself for being #1 in Innovation. When I first got into ASU, I was proud to be called a Sun Devil. I also was unsure what it was I wanted to do with my life. I bounced around from major to major (three times, to be exact), and it wasn't until an hour long talk with an advisor. By the end of our call, I realized Organizational Leadership would be the best degree for me to pursue. Fast forward three years from that call: I graduated with my BA in Organizational Leadership, got admitted to a Sociology Graduate program, and I have my life under control. ASU helped me go from a frazzled young student, mother, and wife, to a well-put together young woman who has her life under control. I pride myself for being an ASU Sun Devil.
I love ASU online. I transferred from a school that I didn't even think my credits would transfer from, and ASU online has been the most amazing program for me. I work in Public Health in California, and just love the flexibility, and set up of this program. I have recommended it to several people looking to get their bachelors. I already want to get my masters from ASU.
I received my degree online. While it was challenging at times, I was able to balance my work and life very well using this method. I was very pleased that I was able to utilize ASU's large online curriculum to receive the degree I wanted. I recommend anyone who would like to higher their education to do so. With the easy accessibility of online courses, there is nothing in your way.
I was introduced to ASU when Starbucks started their College Achivement Plan in association with ASU. I think their online program is groundbreaking and an amazing experience. I am a parent and full time Store Manager and I was able to complete my degree after transferring in as a Junior straight through 2 years. Their block system makes mapping out coursework easier because you can see your loads in two class increments. The financial aid information in their MyASU platform made tracking my tuition seamless. There were plenty of people from ASU available for support but I rarely needed to use those resources because the portal itself is so user friendly and informative. All of the instructing staff were knowledgeable about their subjects and created excellent learning environments for their students. Text book pricing was fair and the course work itself was not overwhelming while still drive all the necessary key points. I feel like I gained so much more from my experience while at ASUOnline than just a degree. I was so happy with ASU's online environment that I have continued on with the Thunderbird OMGM through ASUOnline.
Arizona State University has an excellent environment something in which students will find ideal for their success. Furthermore, ASU staff will always help you in times of need and will push for achievement. Having someone standing by your side is helpful because you then have someone to support you. On my part, an ASU advisor, Donovan Lee, from the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice was there for me in all cases, and that is unforgettable.
