Arkansas State University Reviews
I would not recommend doing any online courses or degree through Arkansas State University. The price is good sure but they are so disorganized and I ask questions about my program and my adviser and student coordinator don't know answers. The online courses have over 5oo students in them so you just feel like a number. Also, the instructor doesn't even grade your assignments and discussions! There are academic assistants that do all the grading. If you ask the instructor a question they just say 'refer to the rubric', that may only be the instructor i have but I have her for nearly all my courses online. There are misspellings and different names used for the same assignments in the syllabus and in weekly modules; that makes the courses even more confusing. There were no actual videos of showing step by step how to use blackboard online website so I had to go to youtube to actually find useful tutorials. If I email academic assistants or my instructor is has taken on average a week and a half for them to get back to me; that's awful because my assignments are due within a week. Also, they do not open assignments early so you can work ahead and be flexible with your schedule. I do not recommend Arkansas State University. The disorganization alone is enough to make me regret my decision of enrolling here.
This college is one of the few colleges that actually prepare students with grant writing and program evaluation courses. Surplus aid is paid within two weeks of course beginning. I highly recommend this school. A 2.5 or higher gpa is good. Check out this school first.
